2017 NFL schedule to be released Thursday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its starting to smell like football!!!!!!!!!!!!!

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000800770/article/2017-nfl-schedule-to-be-released-thursday

The 2017 NFL regular-season schedule will soon be here.

The 2017 schedule will be announced exclusively on NFL Network at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday night as part of a two-hour long special.

The announcement comes after last week's unveiling of the 2017 preseason schedule.

In January, the NFL revealed each team's opponents for the 2017 season.

We should do a over under on how many prime time games we will have. I say 3 with the Thursday night, and I think we have a Sunday and a Monday. Giants, Patriots, and A Division Game.

Yeah, they hinted at it last week(Or at least the Lions owner did). We already know that Chiefs @ Patriots will be the opener, and the Falcons will supposedly have the first SNF game as they open their stadium. Rumor for that game is Dallas.

I was just about to say. Went to Atlanta 3 weeks ago. That stadium looks great but they have a very long way to go. The roof is so far behind schedule as well. They've even delayed the demolition of the Georgia Dome.

They cancelled/moved a few soccer games scheduled for August today. Now the stadium will officially open for a Falcons preseason game.

Well they probably will be done. But up here in Orlando the MLS Oralando City soccer stadium wasn't finished and they still played. Was crazy should have had hard hats.

After two stoppages due to lightning, hopefully the schedule Makers will stop scheduling 4:30 kickoffs for our early home games.

You don't live down here. Let me tell you people who live here would much prefer lightning delays over heat stroke.

I used to. I know what the weather is like down there and my advice to fans is hydrate.

The frickin' players are sprinting down there, you don't see too many of them dropping from heat stroke.

Buccaneers have been playing outside at 1pm for 40 years.

Something called global warming might be the difference.

It'll probably be the same. Road games the 1st few weeks, 4pm or maybe primetime games the rest of September.

Agreed about the early starts. If you schedule the game at 4:30 then you might as well cancel out the weather advantage. It's not an easy condition to play in but at least our Bucs are adapted to it by the end of training camp and preseason. My favorite sight in the world is watching the other team wear down while we stay more fresh due to being more acclimated to the weather. Not that it doesn't get humid as can be towards the evening but save those 4 PM starts for later in the year. I'd rather make those poor bastards we're playing kick off at 110 degrees on the field in the hot September sun.

I think we will be in line for a few prime times for sure this year. I'm gonna say 3 prime time between MNF, TNF and SNF and probably 2 or 3 4pm starts.

Try watching the Bucs let you down in 100+ degree weather while you're sober. Hydration is out of the question. Beer in necessary.
