2005 schedule released

13 posts in this topic

As exemplified by the four primetime night appearances, Brett Favre and the Packers are one of the biggest television drawing cards in the NFL today. Along those lines, eight of the final nine games on the Green Bay schedule in 2005 will be broadcast nationally. For those reasons, just five of the team's 16 games will have kick off at noon (CT) on a Sunday.

Isn't that the truth, atleast the NFL know who draws the bigger audiance.

Everyone likes to see celebs fall on their faces. As you said it is a big draw.

I know KFAN has been talking about the schedule on PA & Dubay. I think NFL.com is releasing it at 1pm. I haven't seen anything hard copy though.

Schedule is on nfl.com now. I think I see GB at 7-9, Chicago at 7-9, Detroit at 8-8 and Vikes at 10-6 (trying to be unbiased as I did this). Long way to go before the season though and the teams may change. The key for both our teams is how far have the Bears and Lions have come along.

Oh great!!! Da Bears come to town in the last game of the year to knock the Vikes out of the playoffs. Of course, Da Bears were eliminated about 4 weeks prior to this.

What I wanna know, is the Vikes have been signing all these players this offseason more than anyone else and they only play 1 MN game, only 1, what a slap in the face to the Vikes organization. Guess they know they are going to be same same Vikes as years past.

I thought I recall hearing one time a few years back, that in order to be on Monday Night Football a team had to have a winning record the prior year. I don't know if they still do that or not. Someone correct me on that if I'm wrong. My guess is if the Vikes have the success that is predicted for them this year, next year you will see more Monday nighters scheduled.

Yes, the Vikes seemed to have improved on paper but they also traded their best national TV draw. Like it or not, Farve has become a media golden boy.

More than likely to happen as we all have come to accept but I will still take it when you are laughing at us after your boys have already had a couple of rounds of golf in from a early dispatching at the hands of the purple. wink.gif

It should be a interesting season. Bears and Lions on the rise, Vikes upgrading a pathetic D, and the Pack struggling with the cap to stay on top. It is going to be a long wait for the opener.

Ah by the middle of the season the networks will be regretting the fact that they have too put the subpar pack on national TV. I dont think even god, i mean Favre can save that sinking ship.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
