    They are a crummy team.

    Latest example Sunday Night Game on NBC vs Altanta.

    They have had about 5 primetime games this season so far.

    Because they are the biggest draw for TV audiences. They have fans that tune in to watch them even if they lose, and lots of people who tune in hoping to see them lose.

    Yes, but the ratings are high and that is what drives the NFL, so a lot of football fans don't give a rats behind, there are many more that do.

    The 'gals generate the most revenue in all of football. The establishment can't ignore that. Hell I love to watch them to see how they'll screw up next.
