    Is it just me, or is this a pretty bad MNF selection?

    Look at a few...
    Oct. 2- Green Bay at Philly
    Oct. 9- Baltimore at Denver
    Oct. 16- Chicago at Arizona
    Nov. 27- Green Bay at Seattle
    Dec. 11- Chicago at St. Louis

    None of these are division rivals, and none of them has two playoff-level teams. HORRIBLE! I don't really care about ANY of these! I know, Green Bay just gets some prime time games naturally, even after an abysmal season the likes of which NO other team would get a MNF appearance, but if Farve retires, who's watching those? Yes, Chicago made the playoffs, and maybe since Edge went to AZ that game is a decent call, but most of these really seem like boring selections.

    OK, I'm not done, now I'm looking week by week for better games...

    Week 3- ATL at NOLA- sure, new orleans gets a game b/c of a hurricane, and it's a division rivalry, but otherwise, not MNF worthy.

    But look at the other options- Panthers/Bucs, Steelers/Bengals, AND Jags/Colts. All great rivalries and two good teams. Even Giants/Seahawks, or Pats/Broncos would be better, all playoff teams, all within Conference at least.

    Week 4- Green Bay at Philly
    -ok, this looks to be one of the most boring weekends in football, the matchups look horrible, so they might get a free pass.
    -I'd still rather watch Pats/Bengals, or Seahawks/Bears

    It's because they don't care about MNF anymore. Sunday Night is the new Monday Night.

    Surprised Green Bay isn't on every week.

    Week 5- Baltimore/Denver

    -I don't have much complaint here, except I'd really rather watch Pats/Dolphins, since it has the opportunity to be a turning point in that division, which has been dominated by the pats for so long.
    -Giants/Skins would be good too.

    Week 6- Bears/Cards

    This could be better than I originally gave it credit for, but hey, there's still Giants/Falcons, and Bucs/Bengals.

    But wait! There's "flex scheduling", so nothing matters anymore...

    Flex scheduling is a great idea, but isn't that just the sunday night games?
