What has happened to Monday Night Football?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with R & D Art

Maybe it is me,maybe not, but what is up with Monday night football? Earlier this year, it was Atlanta and there were hardly anyone in the stands. Ok, lets look at these games. It is probably me, and remember, this is just my opinions below, but I am not into watching someone get their butts kicked up and down the field. I like a competative game. With that said, I hope not to offend anyone as it is my OPINION.

Schedule  

Wk 1: Ravens 20, Bengals 27 - Great game here and 2 decent teams.

Wk 1: Cardinals 17, 49ers 20  - This was another close one.

Wk 2: Redskins 20, Eagles 12 - Very good game here and people come out to see both teams.

Wk 3: Titans 31, Saints 14 - Titans are an up and down team and this is not the saints year.

Wk 4: Patriots 34, Bengals 13 - This was a waste of great television time.

Wk 5: Cowboys 25, Bills 24  - Great game. If it was not for the second half, the Cowboys would be crying.

Wk 6: Giants 31, Falcons 10 - The stadium was half empty. Need I say more.

Wk 7: Colts 29, Jaguars 7 - Please, give me the Pats, maybe the Steelers, and the Chargers, and maybe we have a game worth seeing.

Wk 8: Packers 19, Broncos 13  - Packers are going for it this year and 2 decent teams. Was a great game.

Wk 9: Ravens 7, Steelers 38 - What??? Did someone bump their head here?

Wk 10:49ers 0, Seahawks 24 - This game should have been a better match-up than what it was. SF did not deliver on their end.

Wk  11: Titans @ Broncos   11/19 8:30 PM - Should be a decent game, But young has yet to impress me.

Wk 12: Dolphins @ Steelers   11/26 8:30 PM - What?!? Did Hell freeze over?

Wk 13: Patriots @ Ravens   12/3 8:30 PM - Please, again? Pats 56 - Ravens 3

Wk 14: Saints @ Falcons   12/10 8:30 PM - OK, this might be a good battle for the cellar. Should be worth watching because it will not be a blow out.

Wk 15: Bears @ Vikings   12/17 8:30 PM - Maybe, if Peterson is still out.

Wk 16: Broncos @ Chargers   12/24 8:00 PM - Should be worth the dime.

Danny, you need to get a lawyer and get in those contract negotiations....I am so sick and tired of hearing about those has beens...I remembered when they were all playing (especially Theisman) and they forgot how good they weren't!

I hate when there are choices to make- tickets on a Pirates of the Bay cruise or watch the Patriots destroy the Bills? Hmmm, been there, watched that. Took the cruise!lol!!

You cant really blame the network and the NFL who schedule these games almost a year in advance. Before the season even began some of these match-ups were pretty intriguing. The Sunday night match-ups have been superior but thats just NBC getting lucky. The Broncos have had alot of air play for an underachieving 5-5 team.

I agree...I almost don't watch Monday Night football anymore. Weeks 12 and 14 look to be stinkers! I like your prediction for week 13 :) That will be one game that's on in our house! Other than that, I'll stick to the Sunday games.

They make up the schedule before the season and with this last game I bet they didn't know that Michael Vick wouldn't be playing this year!  I mean there have been so many twists and turns this year with injuries and scandals!  Look at the Ravens!  We were supposed to be SUPER BOWL contenders this year, SERIOUSLY!

What can ya do, Danny? Do you suggest that the NFL also make monday night games "flex" games to get better matchups?

Jim - I am guessing that you are being sarcastic because that is asking way too much for teams.

Ryan- the schedule is what it is....set months before the season starts....it has always given several crappy matchups per season, particularily late in the season- it's nothing new. Until they flex that too- you're not always going to see a "great" game. I like how Danny's week 4 and 9 losers are wastes of time, but when they played each other in week one they were two decent teams. :)

Maybe Nostradamus could be contacted to make the schedule then!

Danny, I agree with you.  Some of those games didn't deserve to be on national TV.  I just hope my Steelers don't look bad this Monday night!

Jim, I think we all know that it is what it is. It is not possible to change Monday's to Flex games, however, it is possible to put out 2 games on Monday Night. Then hopefully, you can have at least 1 worth watching.

Roberta, it is sad when Heros is more watched than Monday Night Football.

David, it would never happen. However, something needs to change.

hey, Heroes is good!  Besides I can watch both. :)

That game sooooo sucked last night.   Did you see that kick?  The ball stuck right in the ground, didn't even bounce.

Last nights game was pretty horrible but that was because of the nasty weather. If the Dolphins don't beat the Jets this Sunday then they will run the tables in reverse, amazing!!!!!!!!!

How about Cam Cameron ?

Eddy, the weather only contributed to the awful playing surface. They sodded over the old field. What a joke. I'll bet they will go the route that the NE Patriots did and put in the new turf.

Diana, I don't think "sucked" describes it well enough.

Eddy, I don't think that they can bet the Wets, I mean the jets.

Jay, I have to agree. Wet or not, that game was pathetic.
