Re: Why arenít the New Orleans Saints playing in more primetime games?

Monday Night Football nugget as it relates to the Saints ...

2016: Falcons vs Saints @ home - Loss (45-32)
2015: Lions vs Saints @ home - Loss (35-27)
2014: Ravens vs Saints @ home - Loss (34-27)

Gotta start winning some games for the Prime time spots.

Hell, yes, I'm a cheerleader. Always looking for the best. I love watching my Saints play. I don't go searching for reasons to lessen that enthusiasm.

While it is true that the 2017 squad is 0-0 Guido, the schedule, including primetime scheduling, is based on varying degrees of past performance.

Primetime games features teams with recent playoff history with some degree of star power. So if you look at the primetime matchups of playoff teams such as Detroit, Dallas, Green Bay, Kansas City, and the like you'll see higher numbers.

I'm not knocking the system. Nor knocking the current Saints squad. But as I posted before only improved performance this year including a playoff run will project to more primetime games in the future.

Super Bowl Championships: New Orleans Saints:1, Carolina:0, Atlanta Chokers: STILL ZERO

Only Atlanta choked in an unchokable situation... Life is definitely good.

****, the Saints are a small market team and will remain that way unless they go on a Patriots kind of run. That's just the way it is. Their loss...

Why...
We've been a sub 500 team
We're small TV market
We're 1 injury away (#9) from boring as hell

Why not...
With Drew we're an exiting team
We usually have close exciting games
Our city has great personality
Our team has rabid fans

We are fun to watch but not a market draw because we aren't winners according to our schedule.
