    I also say we play the colts on MNF regardless of how bad we end this season.
    But I think if we win atleast 3 of our last four this season we might get two appearances. I've got a feeling we might get to face the chargers next year on MNF.

    Basically what happened was that in the last TV contract, ESPN lost Sunday Night games to NBC. So since Disney owns both ESPN and ABC they switched MNF to ESPN. ABC has basically given their sports dept over to ESPN.

    I don't think MNF will really be the same with it switching over to cable, it is no longer the institue that allowed anyone to watch as long as they had a TV,

    But hey.. its still Monday Night Football! It'll be back to normal soon enough after the current contract expires.

    I think next year we'll get two prime time games automatically, maybe one MNF and one preset sunday night. If we play well, I hope we get a sunday nighter picked up. Nice to have some attention!

    I think we won't get picked up for sunday night games this season because it's too far away and there are more reliable options. If the titans lost to houston and the jags, neither of our last two games would be nationally interesting.

    for the sake of Houstonians, i hope not..
    that would cause the city of houston to suffer a 71.8% increase in the suicide rate overnight..

    SNF is actually becoming more prestigious, and of course it's on National TV, where ESPN is still cable or satellite. Their games have been much better too. Madden still gives the game more credibilty, where the MNF guys are doing a talk show interrupted by a football game.

    They're doing it right on Sunday nights. The flex games are great, even though they missed the mark on one because Mcnabb got hurt. I'm pumped for tonight's game, GO Saints!

    But at the moment, GO TITANS!
