    I don't Thursday Night Football sucks...

    I hope the Dolphins never play on Thursday night and wish the NFL would just drop it completely.

    I hope we never played on thursday night ever again. All they ever do is get their *** kicked and it affects so many other things too. I totally wish they would do away with it but I know they won't because of money. But let other teams play those.

    I hope we never play on a Thursday night again. Its silly. Short week and we have not been to good on Thursday night. But of course it will happen sooner or later.
    Like Jimmy Johnson always said.
    "I would rather play at 1:00 at home every game of the regular season".

    I like thursday night games, just not for Miami. Their record has been horrible lately and it changes the weekly routine too much. 1 game max and hopefully it's a home game.

    The reason miami has been so horrible in Thursday night games is because they’re never given a home game for them. Road teams on Thursday night are a near guaranteed loss.

    Oh and, fun fact to check into, look up how many Thursday night games the Pats have had to play on the road vs at home.

    Is that a new thing? The Browns off the top of my head didn't play any thursday night games in 2017

    IF we have to play on TNF, I hope we do it at home. But knowing how much the league hates us, we'll probably be visiting again.

    I don’t think every team has to play a Thursday night game. I think the rule was that every team must have at least one nationally televised game and Thursday night games meet that criteria. Usually the Thursday night game is the only televised game that Cleveland gets now. Browns played “Thursday night football” last season vs the Vikings in London. Although it was played on Sunday it still was broadcasted by NFLN as “Thursday night football”

    Thank god they’re getting rid of those fugly color rush uniforms.

    I like how this article thinks a stronger slate of games will help Thursday Night Football. It’s not the matchups, it’s the pathetic display of football teams put on after being battered and bruised four days ago.

    Thursday night football wasn't bad IMO,the schedule games played was weak however and the chances of injury greatly increases for the players, but the NFL could get away with that because they knew we would watch no matter what.

    "Oh hey, thanks National Football League for scheduling this game on the most inconvenient date and time possible, and removing it from regular networks so that I have to watch it online at ****ing 100p with stuttering and lag galore! You're the best!"

    I love TNF just to have football during the mid week, but I hate the scheduling disadvantages it brings so hopefully they leave us out.

    Glad to see the color rush unis out though. There are maybe a handful of nice ones. The rest are hideous

    I hate ALL prime time, 4:30 Starts and London! The not ready for prime time Dolphins just have a terrible record on those slots. I would wager Miami has a .600 record on 1pm Sunday starts over the past 10 years and sub .300 record on the rest of the start times.

    I think London games count as a Thursday game too. So if you go to London that would qualify as a Thursday game

    Dolphins Jets game was on a Saturday night if I recall. Even if it counts as a TNF game, it wasn't a Thursday night game.

    Is Einstein the go to here? I mean we are discussing wealth and adulthood, not intellect. Maybe roll with a Vanderbilt or a “Mr. Moneybags”.

    You just defending the downtrodden? True man of the people. I obviously wasn’t being serious. I can’t imagine being a member of this page, and not doing everything you can to see every game.
