2009 NFL Schedule Release Party

The NFL gets it, I mean they really do.  For years they have released the schedule at noon or 2 PM.  Each year the day of the release has become a bigger and bigger deal.  What does the League do?  Move it to primetime and schedule an entire hour long show to releasing the schedule.  Classic.

ESPN is devoting 2 hours to the release.  Think about it, we already know WHO the Broncos will play in 2009, and if you think about it a bit, and consider the NFL's TV policy and other events CBS and FOX cover at times(US OPEN for instance) you could probably get pretty close. 

We all know, as the NFL does, that it isn't simply about dates and opponents.  No, it is a celebration of the next phase of the NFL off-season.  Each phase that ends welcomes the next and before you know it I'll be in Denver watching Training Camp.

So Broncos Fans, come and discuss the schedule.  Discuss which games you'll go to and why.  Discuss which stretch will be crucial to the team's success and why the team will get out to a 4-0 start.  That's all part of the fun, part of the lure of the Broncos and the NFL. 

I'll post the schedule when it is released.  Until then, here are the Broncos' home and road opponents for 2009 --
