    Eagles/Bears flexed to SNF

    The Philly Triangle - 1 focal point of potential stability that has continued to solidify itself through the season showing its ability to anchor the foundation. 1 leading force to shape the future. 1 collector to supply the pieces. Could the Green/Silver lining return to the triangle?...stay tuned to this continuing saga.

    That sucks. Way colder and a shorter week for the Cowboy game.

    They will probably flex the Dallas game too, if the division comes down to it. The nation loves a good Cowboys ass beating and that promises to be one.

    Sweet im cool with this. Was getting sick of back to back 1pm games. Nice change of pace for some prime time. Like the respect.
    My common sense is tingling.

    Shorter week. Yes -7 is shorter. If you got up 7 hours later how would your day go?

    I like the 1 pm games, but I'm old fashioned. I like the routine, and not having to wait til later or M or Th night games. Its OK. Not a big deal. Good national exposure.

    Glad I couldn't get off work that day and sold the ticket... Late season night games suck... Unless its a playoff game, I want 1:00pm games in December at home...

    These guys run a two minute offense for sixty minutes every week. I don't see this schedule time change as a problem.

    In the grand scheme of things, 7 hours shouldn't be a big deal. Teams play night games every week and it's never talked about. And they're not waking up 7 hours later, if you want to get technical with this.

    I'm surprised by this flexing... If you think about it, this game could be meaningless for the Eagles and give them a chance to rest starters for the game in Dallas... If the Eagles win this week in Min. and Dallas wins the next 2, the game has no meaning to the Eagles... No matter what, they'd have to win in Dallas to clinch the division...

    Then the question becomes, do you rest starters against the Bears for a virtual bye week...

    I was thinking the same thing.

    I hate to look ahead but the likely scenario is that the Bears game is meaningless.

    It would still have playoff seeding implications; #3 seed as opposed to the #4 seed. We could also be in a (rare but still possible) situation where we could still get a wildcard birth even with a loss against dallas.
