Schedule emphasizes NFL strength

Posted by Darren Urban on April 14, 2010 – 2:14 pm

Saw this comment by former Packers exec and current writer for the National Football Post, Andrew Brandt: “Continuing power of NFL: it is “news” that schedule — with opponents already known — will be announced next Tuesday.”

So true. The NFL let everyone know today the 2010 schedule will come out next week (at 4 p.m. Arizona time) and it was, indeed, news. And it will be big news again Tuesday when the actual schedule is released (and again, we already know what opponents every team has; the schedule release is about what dates those games will be played).

It underscores that, again, there never is a true downtime for the NFL anymore. Fans are ravenous for any football news. But mostly, it shows the power of the shield.

Philly-Dallas impacts more than playoffs

Posted by Darren Urban on December 30, 2009 – 9:51 am

The Cardinals’ playoff seeding likely will be determined in part by the outcome of the Philadelphia-Dallas game, but that result will also make a difference in next year’s schedule. That’s because the Cardinals play the NFC East winner at some point in 2010 — meaning Sunday’s victor between the Cowboys and Eagles will visit University of Phoenix Stadium.

That’s the only opponent left undetermined for the Cards for 2010. Here is the schedule (dates and times will be announced in April):


  • Seattle
  • San Francisco
  • St. Louis
  • New Orleans
  • Tampa Bay
  • Denver
  • Oakland
  • Winner of Philadelphia/Dallas game


  • Seattle
  • San Francisco
  • St. Louis
  • Atlanta
  • Carolina
  • Kansas City
  • San Diego
  • Minnesota
