    Since there is a 12-day advance notice and the scheduled game is Philly-Dallas, it looks like there's a good chance that the Miami-NYJ game for Dec 12 could be flexed to prime time.
    The game is scheduled for 4:15 and looked to be CBS' main doubleheader game but now it could be a national game.
    The other choice could be be SD-KC.
    We'll find out tomorrow.
    The way we've played in primetime, I want it to stay at 4:15.

    Following week, NE plays G. Bay on SNF, can't have them on twice in a row.
    Figure Big Mouth Rex and the NYC TV market trumps small markets KC-SD.

    This is what I've been thinking. Primetime games have been a curse for us the past few years.

    i hope it goes to primetime.

    we're due for a good primetime showing, and what better way than to beat the jets on national tv late in the season. That will make the world forget all about the previous 3 primetime performances.

    i say move the game !

    I'd love to beat the jets on national TV. But we won't get that chance nor do I think we want it. Lets play late afternoon on the road. We had our best game this year at 4:15 lol. Not to early, not too late.

    We are an embarrasment to prime time and don't deserve to play under the lights. We probably will only get 2 at most next year.

    So you have seen us beat you the last two years in your house?

    I guess its a different house this time.

    You do have that.

    It's all about ratings for primetime slots. Which game is the most appealing. We're hardly over .500 right now. We'll probably going to be hovering the .500 mark for the Jets game as well.

    Who the **** wants to watch a good football team against a bad football team?

    Dosen't matter, easier for me to watch 8:30 games than 4:15 though. If the league uses past primetime games as consideration the last 2 Dolphins VS Jets games in primetime were very entertaining.

    first of all, they better not keep the cowboys eagles that week. i hope they dont say that the cowboys have looked much better of late, and the eagles need the game, and the rivalry is very good. i dont care, 3-8 teams should be flexed out no matter who it is.

    that being said, i think the chiefs chargers game will be flexed. it would make perfect sense.

    our game is at 415 as is the chiefs chargers. it would make sense to leave our game as the national game, and then let the whole nation see a up and coming chief team vs a charger team for first place in the division.

    also, chiefs have only been in primetime once, and san diego has been i believe 3 times and this would be their fourth.

    the jet dolphin game i believe can not be flexed due to the jets having already played in 5 primetime games, which is the limit after they play the pats monday night.

    also, i dont recall any teams getting back to back to back primetime games, so that would prob make our game the 415 game, and staying that way. im fine with that anyway.

    We got embarrassed on back to back prime time games at home this season. Id be happy to watch us in prime time in Jan...All my fellow NYC DOLFANS (www.dolfansnyc.com) will be at the game but me as I am working that night. Thank god for the DVR. If we dont make the playoffs hopefully we can at least split with the jests.

    I am going and off on Monday, but keep it at 4:15 so I can celebrate at the bar where it is warm after the game instead of that windy parking lot!

    Yes, because were not going to the playoffs anyway, so it would be nice to get the monkey off our backs

    The NFL also announced that the Week 14 Patriots-Bears game has been moved from a 1 p.m. kickoff to a 4:15 p.m. kickoff.
    so my guess no jim nance phil sims for the fins jets game, we will prob get greg gumble and Dan Diedorf YOU CAN take that to VEGAS and bet on it
