I have seen this date several times on other boards regarding the release of the NFL Schedule for 2006. Has anyone heard or seen anything else?

I went to NFL Networks website and looked at their TV Schedule and they show nothing regarding the schedule release for April.

Thanks!

NFL | Schedule will be released Thursday

Tue, 4 Apr 2006 10:48:55 -0700

Updating previous reports, NFL.com reports the NFL's release of the 2006 regular season schedule will be made into a two-hour television show on the NFL Network's signature show, NFL Total Access. The show will air Thursday, April 6, at 2 p.m. ET, when the master schedule is to be completed.

NFL Network will air the schedule release live at 2EST!

And...

"To make the system more flexible, up to three teams each season will be allowed a bonus sixth prime-time appearance. All the others will be limited to a maximum of five, including the Monday night ESPN package and the late-season Saturday or Thursday games on NFL Network.

The NFL often has moved games from early afternoon to late afternoon on Sundays to get a top matchup in a better viewing slot. It did so eight times in 2005. That flexibility remains.

In recent seasons, the league has faced lower primetime ratings because of poor late-season matchups. It also has seen surprisingly successful teams shut out of primetime because the entire schedule is released in April."

So, with our schedule next fall, methinks that we will have the full boat of SIX PRIMETIME GAMES!

A. To make up for last year,

and

B. With more than NINE games to choose from: Pitt (twice) Indy, New England, Carolina, Tampa Bay, Denver, San Diego, Atlanta and Kansas City marquee matchups, I bet we end up on National TV alot.

:cheers:

SIX?! Ugh for the love of Christ I think we've seen enough of the Cowboys, Redskins, and Packers in the last few years to last us a lifetime. <_<
