Agreed. Outside of week 2, I'm really liking our schedule. Lots of primetime games, only one true 1pm EST game, team can still make their annual stop in Youngstown - I'm almost ready for the season to start!
I'm going to have to disagree about week 2. I feel that having the home openor for Seattle being against the niners puts the pressure on them. Similar to the Packers home opener last season, I think the niners come out strong and shut up the croud early. If Seattle wins its good for them, if the niners win it would be demoralizing for seattle.
Yea I don't think a loss there hurts us as much as it would hurt them...but still gonna be a tough game and a loud crowd.
I also love the London game for many reasons. Firstly, it's one less true road game and it comes the week before a bye. It will also serve as a way to build camaraderie, similar to Youngstown.
