  • NFL Flex'ing Possibilities.....I Have No Idea......



    Getting a little bit ahead of myself here but can anyone refresh me on the NFL game "flexing" rules.......don't they have to notify the flex'd market something like 12 days in advance?




    Currently don't see a night game scheduled for 1/1/12.....was just trying to determine if they leave this slot open for a flex'd game.....possibly NYG/DAL or if it's a New Years thing or what......also not sure if they'd possibly flex the Jets/Giants game seeing as it could be a crucial game for both team and both conferences.....though that'd mean they'd push the GB/CHI game up which I can't see happening.

      I think Fox will stop them again....CBS and Fox has 2 chances each to veto NBC, Fox already veto NBC on Packers vs Giants, you think if the division is on the line they wouldn't veto NBC again?

          According to Mike Florio NBC is allowed to have the Giants/Cowboys again...

            the last flex game ....week 17 only requires
            a 6 day notice instead of the normal 12
            because it is purposely reserved for the game with the most important playoff ramifications which obviously is not discernible until after the 12/26/11 monday night game between ATL and NO.

            its not a typical flex swip-swap.....it won't even be announced until tuesday 12/27/11.
            any game that last sunday of the regular season could be it.

            there is no thursday game or MNF game in the last week.....everybody is scheduled to play sunday just to be sure we get the most
            important game on sunday night 1/1/12

            dallas @ giants.....!! ??

                Fox and CBS each may protect a total of five Sunday afternoon games, not more than one per week, during weeks 11-16 and NBC selcts which game they want to air. FOX and CBS cannot protect games in week 17. In years when Christmas falls on Sunday (like 2011) the NFL schedules most games for Saturday December 24 and then schedules a Sunday night game for NBC on Christmas night. Thus, flexible scheduling can not occur in week 16; NBC is then given flexible scheduling in week 10 instead. The week 17 game on Sunday night is decided exclusively by the NFL, with no restrictions; CBS and FOX cannot protect games, but NBC cannot pick its game. There are no restrictions on which game the NFL can select. Since 2010 when the NFL began scheduling only divisional matchups in week 17, it is possible an intradivisional game that appeared on national TV previously could be selected again. The NFL will only select such a game if there is no other suitable option.

                        Personally I dont think I can handle a winner take all game vs Dallas in PrimeTime that Sunday Night. I hope we wrap it up before then by us winning and them losing...




                        I remember one of those type games years ago.. maybe like in mid to late 90s where we played Dallas in a winner take all type game that went to OT and we lost

                        Football has been very, very good to us.
                        After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                        But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                        # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                        1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                        2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                        3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                        4-New York Giants!!!
                        5-NE
                        Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                          [/quote] if i remember rightly, it was at the end of the 1993 season. Had we beaten the Cowboys in that game, we would have won the Nfc east and had a 1st round bye and an easier run at the Championship. We lost, Emmit Smith ran us into the ground and we went to SF in the WC round and literally got the **** kicked out of us 44-3. It was also LT's and Simms last game as Giants.
