Is it just me or does Monday Night Football suck this season? Can they do a worse job scheduling games? You think ESPN would have more pull and say something especially considering ESPN thinks they run the sports universe. Let’s take a look at the Monday Night Football games so far this year…
Wk 1 – New England/Miami (Ok game, Dolphins stink but they are a popular team at least)
Wk 2 – NY Giants/St. Louis (Giants are a good team, Rams are winless)
Wk 3 – Dallas/Washington (NFC East rivalry game, so this one is ok)
Wk 4 – Tampa Bay/Indianapolis (Ok, the Peyton injury effected this. But another winless team and Tampa is just ok)
Wk 5 – Detroit/Chicago (Thanks to the Lions surprise season this has been best MNF game so far)
Wk 6 – NY Jets/Miami (Wow, winless Miami twice now. Jets were 2-3 going into the game too, but saved their season)
Wk 7 – Jacksonville/Baltimore (Jaguars are awful. Ravens should be good but laid an egg. One of worst football games in history of Earth)
Ok so out of the first 7 MNF games this year, I would say 2 of them are significant games: Detroit/Chicago and Dallas/Washington. The other five games have all been terrible, one-sided matchups. Just tellible Michael!
Looking at the rest of the season here are a few more games that I guarantee I will not have an interest in watching… and I love watching football…
San Diego at Kansas City; Minnesota at Green Bay; San Diego at Jacksonville; St. Louis at Seattle
I get the NFL is very unpredictable, but you’re telling me they couldn’t throw in a Jets/Pats, Ravens/Steelers, Giants/Eagles type game? Poor Jon Gruden is stuck watching hours of game film of Matt Cassel, Tavaris Jackson and Chad Matt Henne Moore. It’s a shame because according to ESPN’s commercials guys all over are the country are leaving their construction and plumbing jobs halfway through their shift to go home and watch. I wouldn’t want them to get fired for sitting through games like we had last Monday night!
Those commercials are pretty funny by the way.
