edit: i noticed you wrote nfl.com...but my point still stands
Yeah NFL.com only went that way the last year or two. NFLN has been like that maybe 5 years now, maybe a little less. I had directv/sunday ticket from 05-through 2010, i watched nfln probably from 05 to 07 or 08 all the time, then stopped watching it even when I had it because I just got sick of that Farve, Tebow, Sam, Manziel stuff. I use to watch ESPN news all the time for like 5 years as well but just got sick of them talking about the same few teams and forgetting about the rest of them. The 9ers games would get 1 or 2 highlights and then the Patriots would have 10... then again maybe we weren't worth talking about. That's one thing I find funny though, NBC SNF, ESPN, NFLN none of them could care less about us in are dark years. We had like 1 SNF game in 7 years then all of a sudden they want us on 2 -3 times a year, NFLN 2 times, ESPN 2 times, they can't stop talking about us now but they acted like we werent a team in the dark ages.
So yeah I wanted prime time games but I guess I didn't mind them not talking about us. I'd rather get no coverage then what it is like now where they cant shut up about us. Making things up, blowing things out of proportion, etc... I'd rather get no coverage but maybe if our guys stopped putting themselves in bad situations. Makes me miss the 2011 team... our egos got big these past 3 years and now we cant stay out of the news or stay out of trouble. We have to realize we are much bigger in the media and more people want a piece of you so you really have to watch yourselves. Always someone ready to take advantage of you or waiting for you to say something dumb (cough culliver). We use to be low key but Smith, Kap, McDonald, Brooks, Harbaugh (commercials/on field behavior), Culliver changed that. Sorry that's my rant.
