You get tired and unprepared teams too. I'd like to see them get rid of them all together. Keep the Lions and Cowboys playing on Thanksgiving and that is it.
ehh, i disagree. one week is a long time to wait between games when football is pretty much the only thing i really care to watch on television. if TNF matchups were actually good i'd love having a game in the middle of the week.
the tired and unprepared thing is a good point though, especially for the road team who had to spend part of that short week travelling. maybe that's when London games need to happen so both teams are in that situation, and then have extra time to rest after the returning flight?
