    Lot's of nationally televised games. Or games that are locally televised in Jacksonville (perhaps we can play the Jaguars every week?).

    I'd like to see the west coast games as close to the middle of the season as they can be, and preferably have a couple sandwiched around the bye week.

    If they're in the middle, we'll have a chance to get the team gelled before going out there, but still have enough time after to recover from the trips before the ::knock on wood:: postseason.

    1. The Pats playing the Broncos in Foxboro and not Edmonton or wherever (old rumor).
    2. Pats at Bills in Toronto.
    3. ZERO Thursday night football games (including Thanksgiving).

    Late night games on the West Coast.

    I forget whose logic I'm stealing, but if your internal clock is already messed up might as well go for broke. If, say the Raiders is a SNF, then maybe @Jets will not be.

    I'll take the last bye week again, but we'll probably get an early one this year because of the last possible one last year.

    To the OP, after week 9 is week 10. There are no bye weeks after week 10.

    Middle of the season bye week.

    Colts/Seahawks/Chargers all played before that bye week.

    AFC East lay ups to finish the season.

    I'd like to see one of our toughest games of the season in the first week. If we can win that game, and better yest dominate, it'll be a little reminder to the rest of the NFL of who the **** we are.

    I'd like to see lots of 1PM games and Week 1 opener on the road in Seattle.

    Seattle is out. This would have to be on CBS (AFC at NFC) and CBS doesn't carry a 4:15pm game Week 1 due to the US Open.

    West coast games spread out apart from each other with either a bye or an extra day rest the week after them.

    I agree with this. Why people want to play two West Coast games in a row is beyond me. Spread them out with the last one coming just after the middle of the season (would a bye week be too much to ask?).

    The Pats NOT playing the Bills after the Pats' bye week--it's happened 4 years in a row, the odds of that being random are something like 1 in 4096......

    If the NFL does not demand a team to go home between 2 games away on the west coast then it would be logical for someone to want that to happen,Possibly they would be able to practice somewhere out there but I don't know what the rules are regarding this.

    I assume the logic is so the team could just stay out west between the games, thus saving 6000 miles of flying and all of the related fatigue and jet lag. I think that makes sense, personally.

    That's actually a fan's dream vacation too. Imagine playing the Seahawks one weekend then getting to go down to San Francisco the next.

    You know what? I'm thinking of doing just that if the schedule allows for it. For me the west coast is alot closer to get to than the east coast. (Although the return flights to China are about the same length whether from the east coast or west coast of the US due to flight routes over the north pole on those trips. Interesting, eh? I guess not.)
