NFL Has to Realize that TIME ZONE Plays a Factor in GAMES !!!!

It's no coincidence that both the Falcons and the Niners started out slow in their games vs. the Falcons. The Niners hasd a 12pm PST start time to their game, while the Seahawks had a 10am PST kickoff.

I know that the championship games alternate each year, and since we had the late spot on FOX last year, we had to have the earlier game. But the NFL should realize that these early games take a toll on west coast teams, especially ones that are traveling cross-country and then having to adjust to the Eastern time zone.

Not a coincidence that both the Niners and Seahawks got their games going in the latter half of their games, and the NFL needs to stick to a more fluid schedule in the playoffs, setting up times based on location of games.

With that said, we're headed to the SB, so f**k off NFL WORLD !!!!!!!!!
Pretty sure they've known for like, 90 years

Pretty sure the answer is, "deal with it."

My memory is a little off, but werent the NFC/AFC games on different days many years ago. I seem to have forgotten, but I have in my head that one game was on Sat, the other on Sund. Maybe Im wrong.
well. if its an evening game arguably an east coast home team would be at a disadvantage of getting tired earlier while a west coast visitor team's biological clock is 3 hours fresher...

NFL and networks have thought this out thoroughly alternating start time for playoff games between the AFC and NFC every other year...it is what it is for BOTH teams and start times honestly should be the least of concerns for a visiting team
Fortunately they'll be in New Orleans a week before the game so it won't matter.

Besides - win games, have home field. Otherwise, don't whine, IMO.

My idea for practice the next 2 weeks:

Eddie D's place in Tampa Bay = Youngstown South for the Niners
