It did not mention it, but I assume the 2 live NFL network produced games. Arizona @ New England and Houston @ Denver will also be in HD?

Pre-Season? Nobody cares about pre-season! Show us 52 REAL games in 24 days and we'll be impressed NFL Network. As far as I can tell, the real football games won't appear on NFL Network until Thanksgiving Night. As far as their schedule, it looks like they are going to air eight (8) Thursday and Saturday night games this season. It's not what I would call a robust schedule, but I do like the fact they are all Thursday and Saturday games. Additionally, all games appear to be in HD:

Week #12 - Thursday 11/23/2006
Denver @ Kansas City

Week #13 - Thursday 11/30/2006
Baltimore @ Cincinnati

Week #14 - Thursday 12/7/2006
Cleveland @ Pittsburgh

Week #15 - Thursday 12/14/2006
San Francisco @ Seattle

Week #15 - Saturday 12/16/2006
Dallas @ Atlanta

Week #16 - Thursday 12/21/2006
Minnesota @ Green Bay

Week #16 - Saturday 12/23/2006
Kansas City @ Oakland

Week #17 - Saturday 12/30/2006
NY Giants @ Washington

Dude...they are NOT gonna break any contracts with Networks just to appease us. Be lucky we got this many JUST to start. Unfortunately, they are long term contracts that they can only break if there is a major downward spike in ratings...but with football's popularity...that is not gonna happen. The REAL fun will be when the exclusive Sunday Ticket contrat expires in 2010. Then it will be a free-for-all. I doubt the NFL will sign that kind of contract again....there will be too many options, too many choices. They are looking to show them on the NFL Network where you choose the team....a combo ppv/a la carte type of situation.
So to start...we really cannot complain.
