The Monday night lineup last year was horrible. Hopefully this year it will be better. Last year you had the Jags vs Browns and just bottom tier teams playing on Monday night last year.

Doesn't the monday night game usually means 1 less day of the week to prepare for the next opponent unless it's a bye. With a supposedly tough schedule, preparation is key and you can never have enough preparation for tough opponents.

I'm fine with it. Only have to stay up late one monday night next season.

I agree, which is why I hate Monday night games, especially as the away team. That extra day for their body to recouperate is important.
During the Bye portion of the season, teams coming off Monday night should have a Bye the next week. And, only teams coming off of a Bye should play on a Thursday.

MNF is not what it used to be.. Sunday night is the big game now. That switched when NBC took Sunday night and ESPN moved to MNF. That being said we will probably have the maixum number of Sunday night games allowable by the rules.

Sunday night games are the ones that have respect tied to it now.

Monday Night is for second tier teams. The Giants have three Sunday Night Games on NBC, one nfl network game, and one Monday Night. Not bad at all.

Looks like we have 5 night games overall, including opening night on a Wednesday, a Thursday night game, 2 Sunday night games and a Monday night game....

Redskins match up with a more experienced RG3 is gonna be a battle in week 13. Running QBs give Perry Fewell's defenses trouble.

The MNF lineup actually looks pretty solid this year. Peyton twice, Bears who I think will be good, Texans, Saints/Eagles ... of course, I don't have cable so I don't watch many non-Giants games. But still, looks good.

you have to wait an extra day, it runs late and people have work in the morning, the broadcast stinks, the announcers stink, and the giants stink when they play on it.

^^reasons i hate MNF^^

I hate waiting that extra day... my football juices are running on Sunday.
I hate that it gives our guys one less day for their bodies to heal for the next game.
I go to bed at 2 every night, so it's not too late for me, but for the normal world it would be so much better starting at 7:30 or 8.
Giants have always stunk on Monday nights. I remember a game back in the 70's against the St; Louis Cardinals where we were both horrid teams and the game went to overtime and we both missed chippy FG's in OT, and the whole game just screamed "Stinkeroo"... ended in a tie. Even the announcers (Howard, Meredith and Giffiord) said that it looked like neither team wanted to win. It stuck in my craw and I've hated us on Monday night's ever since. And, if we don't stink on Monday night, we are sure to stink the following Sunday.

Monday's have been reduced to ESPN.

You are only allowed a certain number of prime time games and I think they were already at the max. You have the wed nite opener and the mandatory thur nite game. They get 2 sun nite ones which only allowed for a max of 1 mon nite game
