Uh.....why the hell would people rather see the Vikings-Cardinals than a possible/probable battle for first place in the AFC East between two rivals?
Oh well...I am kinda glad it is early...then I can go to sleep at a decent time! Don't get me wrong either way I would watch the entire game but I need sleep! GO PHINS!
Because Arizona and Minnesota have more personalities than the Dolphins do probably.
Vikings and Cardinals, two locks for the playoffs, versus a key division battle?
im so pissed off seriously
no ronnie brown= no primetime lol
Because Brett Favre brings ratings! His game a couple weeks ago on Sunday night was the highest rated game on Sunday night......ever. Almost 20 million people watched. More than watched the Colts/Patriots the week after.
I have NFL Sunday Ticket, so it doesn't matter for me. But I'm still pissed off because the crowd won't be as loud. It will probably be hot, so we will force them to wear their dark blue jerzies and we will wear our white on white.
Wonderful. Because i haven't seen or heard enough of Brett Favre this season.
they don't wanna give the fins the advantage ....because we play better at night games and it seems there's more fans and the stadium is louder at night with all the orange carpet celebs.
Whatev, early games are to our advantage. Plus now you have the added mental affect of being nationally disrespected.
Every time Favre and his team get handed a favor, the fins benefit.
why are you guys pissed?
the less recovery time the patriots get the better! that's an extra 6-7 hours you can take away from patriots' recovery time in the short week for them. they're playing monday night...will have 5 short days to recover....and less time to practice too.
Better for the Dolphins IMO. 1 pm game is going to be hotter than a night game. That extra 10-20 degrees will affect the pansies more than the Dolphins.
it's all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
I understand the reasoning for it. I realize the Vikings and Cardinals would be a bigger draw talent wise with players like Peterson and Favre and Fitzgerald,Warner,Boldin but from a standings and matchup standpoint who gives a ****? There's no rivalry there, and nothing significant is on the line except MAYBE the #2 seed in the playoffs assuming the mediocre Cardinals can even stay with in striking distance of the Vikings for the next two weeks.
The answer is because BRETT FAVRE.
I bet CBS is happy about this!
While this is true, i think it's still a stretch. If anything we might have been hurt by this because we clearly play better in night games with the home crowd charged up and behind us.
It also is bad for me.
Because I was planning on driving to Pittsburgh that weekend with friends ( all Steelers fans) to see the Raiders game. Then I would be able to catch the fins game at night.
Looks like I am not going now.... Fins are more important.
What a bunch of cowards they are! They see the brew brewing of a potential humbling of the Pats coming and so they kept it out of PrimeTime to keep the Pats from being humbled any further by losing on Prime Time "right after" losing to the Saints the week before. That's what it looks like to me...
Now I'm forced to see it online, "illegally"...
I mean can't they at least wait until Monday so we can see what's going on? If the Phins lay an egg and lose the Bills then yeah the Sunday Night game is irrelevant, or if the Patriots beat the Saints it would be less of a marquee matchup because the division would then not be on the line in Miami on December 6th.
Sucks for me since I've got to work that day, and was planning to be home in time to watch the evening game.
Oh well, I guess I'll catch the highlights and follow the score on NFL.com -it should be a great game.
Maybe the earlier start time will give Miami a bit of an edge with some hot weather? The Pats now have a bit less time to prepare for this game, and as has been stated, I hope they have a brutal physical game against the Saints (and lose too).
this maybe the biggest joke. i dont care about god damn brett favre anymore, the guy is a prima donna. whether or not its better to play at 1 isnt the issue, its the fact that our crowd wouldve been so much louder at night then day, plus it is just a much more appealing matchup than vikes cards. lets look at both matchups.dolphins pats- potenially for divison lead, big division rivalry, tom brady, randy moss, etc, also the dolphins have played 3 times on primetime and have had arguably 2 of the top 5 games of the season to date. vikes cards- 2 teams who play in real crappy divisions, the game will be no meaning really as the cards can win there division at 8-8, while the vikes have locked theres up already while being 3 games up in the standings plus the head to head with gb so techincally 4 games up. all this is bc of brett god damn favre. i hope he gets knocked out this week by tommie harris and nbc has jackson starting for the vikes that week. i have the ticket so it wnt affect me, but the fact is once again when u think there is no way we would not be playing on primetime after we had beaten carolina to get to 5-5 and back in the hunt, and against the poster boy of the nfl, we get stabbed again.
Wow huge blow, now I might miss the game. NBC blows.
It is true though, the Phins don't have any superstars and the Pats are an elite team. The Dolphins don't beat elite teams...
I don't mind. I plan to watch both games anyways. Vikings' games have been highly rated.
NBC wants to promote the big names for the Vikes-Cards game, so I can understand, even if by the time they play I think it won't be for much of anything -certainly not for a division lead.
With Ronnie out, yeah, no more big name players for us, but I don't consider the Pats an elite team this year. Good, very good even? Yeah, but we usually manage to at least split our games with the Pats most years (other than that 1-15 team in 07) so I like our chances of a win.
We were one Ginn catch from beating the Colts, one failed TD drive from beating the Saints, and this team is getting better each week as Henne gets more experience.
The mounting injuries may hold us back this year, but you can look and see this team will give every opponent fits.
I have to call shannanigans on this one
Damn. This sucks I was really looking forward to seeing those orange jerseys again.
I hate Brett Favre. I wish nothing but pain on him. And I now hate NBC more than ever.
Wait a minute. They didn't flex Eagles/Bears or Steelers/Ravens out of Sunday night but Dolphins/Pats (potentially for first place in a division) gets flexed out??!?!? Wow is that horse#&#.
You never know, they might install a camera in his bathroom so you can see him drop deuces during the week
Week 15 Minnesota plays at Carolina. If that game is NOT flexed out...then there is a conspiracy.
Brett Favre strikes again
That was based more on the 'return to Lambeau' than simply Farve himself.
what I hate about this is that instead of wearing the aqua unbis we will probally wear those hideus all white uniforms . but I really hate not having a prime time wide receiver and a shining star tightend.
My thoughts exactly.
Maybe we already reported to the league that we were wearing the orange jerseys and can not change it. Not sure what the rule is there.
I really doubt that the whole dark jersey vs. white jersey, with regard to the heat, makes that much difference at this time of year anyway.
True, but with the teams having faced off recently, prep time for the players & coaches goes way down, especially with RB out for the season.
Personally, I'm a happy camper. 3 night games in 4 weeks is leaving me sleep-deprived!
Good. I hope it's 100 degrees during the afternoon and Brady gets a massive vadge cramp.
I hope Farve has a illiness that forces him to miss that game (explosive diarrhea ) then S--ts all over NBC!
NBC is on the bottom of the totem pole of all the major networks. They will realize they made a mistake when the Dolphins - Pats game comes down to the last few seconds in one of the best games of the season while the minn - ari game is over by the 3rd quarter. CBS will again benefit from another hard hitting battle between the finz & pats that always proves to be exciting football. Hope this national disrespect fires up our team and we come out on top. That game will be the deciding factor of our season if everything b/t then goes to plan!
NBC you can just suckkkk myyyyy ************
When the schedule came out I thought great we have a prime time game against the Patriots... But with the Vikings Cards game fell on the same day, I didn't think our game would have held up. There is also another game that Im sure NBC would have picked over us based upon the storylines... The Eagles play the Falcons too. Im sure they would have loved to cover that game too
i hate to tell nbc but more people watch the sunday day games than the night game. this all about the ongoing stroking of favre. bad news for nbc again cards are one of the least watched teams in the nfl as opposed to the fins and pats who are 2 of the most watched teams. well i hope nbc's reach around on favre blows in their hands. hopefully cards will lose their next 2 games.
**** i have to work until 9 i thought i would be able to watch it.
Huh.....How the heck do you figure that?
At least we won't have to wait longer to see it.
Gisele must have wanted Tom home early.
I think you guys are bunch winey babies. There is no conspiracy or disrespect. It's a better game from a rating standpoint. Not many people outside the AFC east are going to be super excited about our game. It's about money and masses mean money. Some of you guys are pathetic we aren't getting slighted. We are a 500 football team right now, nobody cares!!!!
I know this is more sour grapes...but wasn't the WHOLE point of the flexing too insure there was a watchable game on Sunday night? We're not talking Browns/Redskins here....we're talking about a potential clash for first place in a division.
I thought the flex was ONLY taken into account in the event of a poor matchup? Why flex out a good game?
Looks like NBC sucks Favre's d*ck more than they suck Brady's. He brought such high ratings because he went against his former team the packers. Two teams who may have their divisions virtually locked up...real exciting. Wont be watching and I hope the cardinals destroy the vikings.
