I heard fans, coaches, and players will have approximately 15 days to get ready for the Thurs schedule flex.

There are pros can cons. I think Thurs night games are a nightmare for players can coaches. Flexed games are a nightmare for fans that book tickets for hotels, flights, ect.

Better matchups on Thurs nights for all fans. There are only a limited amount of good or great matchups every week. Not sure how the NFL overcomes this issue with the other networks. Apparently the other networks can protect certain games. The NFL cares more about the overall viewing audiences and big money partnerships than the fans that attend games.
