I like them to an extent, but 4-5 is too many, in my opinion. The game is on so late, it's hard to focus on working the next day because of the lack of sleep. Of course, it is IMPOSSIBLE to go to before the game ends because I want to see evety play, even though we are blowing out the other team. I like the noon Sunday kickoffs becasue by 3, you can catch up on work and go to bed at a normal hour. The 3:00 kickoffs are also good because you can do your work early and then relax for the game. I wouldn't mind 1-2 p. time games, and the rest noon or 3:00 starts. What's your opinion?

I love them, because I live in Virginia and refuse to pay the ridiculous amount that DirecTV charges for the Sunday ticket. Primetime games allow me to stay home and catch them on the TV vs. going to a sportsbar or watching them online.

Prime time games are the best. The whole world gets to watch the Saints beat some other team.
And having 5 prime time games shows that the team is one of the most popular/profitable/best in the league.

Leaving halfway through the game to go to work is not fun at all.

when all of your coworkers know you bleed black and gold, they like to tell you what happened before you can go home and watch it. Then you get written up for going on a punching spree.

That's what vacation/sick days are for.

I love it because we usually dominate in that setting in the Brees/Payton era. Incredible record and some of our best performances.

2006 23-3 W vs Atlanta
2006 42-17 W vs Dallas
2007 10-41 L vs Indy
2007 14-31 L vs Tennessee
2007 28-17 W vs Seattle
2007 34-14 W vs Atlanta
2008 27-30 L vs Minnesota
2008 51-29 W vs Green Bay
2008 24-27 L vs Chicago
2009 35-27 W vs Atlanta
2009 38-17 W vs New England
2009 17-24 L vs Dallas
2010 14-9 W vs Minnesota
2010 25-22 W vs San Fran
2010 20-10 W vs Pittsburgh
2010 17-14 W vs Atlanta
2011 34-42 L vs Green Bay
2011 62-7 W vs Indy
2011 49-24 W vs NY Giants
2011 31-17 W vs Detroit
2011 45-16 W vs Atlanta
2012 31-24 W vs San Diego
2012 28-13 W vs Philly
2012 13-23 L vs Atlanta

17-7 record against a pretty tough schedule (typical of prime time games). This is a better W-L record than in non prime time games for the Saints since 2006. Interestingly, we are 0-3 when playing on the NFL Network. We are a nice tidy 5-1 vs Atlanta.

I know 'round these parts, you're forgiven if you come in tired after watching a Saints primetime game - especially if they win. Don't know what kind of Cowboy country you live in.

What is this work thing you are talking about doing on Sundays during football season? Working on a case of beer?
