At first it was going to be Niners vs. Eagles in London but they changed it and I'm glad.

 

However, is there a year where we don't play the Niners or Bears? No offense but I'm sick of seeing those teams every year


Haha, I doubt it. Although the schedules for which divison a team would play, I think is changed every 3 years, or every other year. Im not sure exactly. I might be way off, but I do know that they switch which division will play which.

The way the schedule's are made, every team within a division (in eagles case, the NFC EAST) will play every team in another division within the same conference (this year it was the NFC SOUTH). This rotates every year so the NFC EAST will not play the entire NFC SOUTH division again until 2012. The next 2 years they will play the entire NFC NORTH(2010) and NFC WEST(2011). In addition to these games, each team will play another team from the other 2 divisions within their conference that finished in the same place within their own division. So, for next year, the eagles schedule will look like this: NYG(2X), DAL(2X), WAS(2X), MIN, CHI, GB, DET, ATL, SF, IND, HOU, TEN, JAX. Given enough research, I could also tell you which games will be played at home and which would be road games.

 

So to answer his question, if there was going to be a year that the eagles didn't play either the bears or 49ers, it would have been this year. But since the eagles finished 2nd in 2008 and both the bears and 49ers finished 2nd in their divisions last year, the eagles ended up playing BOTH of them this year. The next earlist year that they could have a year where they don't play either would be 2012.

I like the idea of sending the Niners, but I am not excited about losing a home game over this. Did the Broncos lose one?


No, they are the away team.

 

Maybe it's for the better.  I'm sure the Broncos weren't really jumping the gun at the opportunity to use outdated facilities at Candlestick.  No offense.


We're working on a new stadium...


Isn't the local theme park the reason you don't have one by now?  Great America I believe it's called.
