2005 Monday Night Football
 
So what do you ladies and gentlemen(and I use that term loosely) think are our odds of getting a game on the Big Screen next year?

Harry Biped 12-29-2004 01:34 AM

Slim, but you never know. It would be really cool if we did.

sprtsfanatic 12-29-2004 01:38 AM

I agree with Harry...slim to none due to the lack of respect and attention we get from the league...but it would be great wouldnt it.

ThaShark316 12-29-2004 02:32 AM

I think I can almost promise a national game in 2006 for HOU/DAL.

JDizzle 12-29-2004 08:20 AM

There's a Texans game every week on the big screen, at least in my living room there is :heh:

Ya never know... if the Bengals can get on MNF....

But I think I'll agree with the above slim chances with a better possiblity in 2006 - maybe vs. Cowboys or Jags.

I think you guys could get on next year, maybe vs the Colts. I can definitely seen prime time matchups for us in the future, provided we actually put up a fight vs you in 2005. :)

I wouldn't be surprised if the Texans-Cowboys game is on Thanksgiving. That would be a good intrastate rival for some good ratings. Cleveland received a MNF in their 5th year back. Granted it was after a 9-7 season and a wild card spot, though. Cincinnati, despite having the easiest schedule in the league last year and coming out with only an 8-8 record got one this season. I think it's very reasonable to expect the Texans get Al and John here in Houston. Maybe against the Colts or Jaguars. I can't see any of the games against the NFC West getting on ABC. The Texans will play the AFC North again. Would Texans-Steelers be a good game to have on MNF? I wouldn't mind that one. If the Texans beat the Browns and the Jaguars lose to the Raiders they'll finish in the 2nd spot which means the Broncos would be on they're schedule again. Broncos-Texans could be another good possibility. Maybe if we start a grass roots campaign we can get them to give the fans in Houston some prime time exposure.

In general, are our fans (who attend the games) in favor on being on Monday Night Football here at home? Geez, that makes for a heck of a late night and I have to go to work the next day. It's fine with me if we never get on MNF for a home game. Plus I like to tailgate a bit and such after the game and that works better in the daylight of afternoon games.

TexanBacker93 12-29-2004 09:20 AM

That sounds like the perfect day to use a vacation day or ::cough cough:: sick day. I know it's not possible for everyone, but I have to work early on Mondays also and I've gone to both Sunday night games. There isn't that much difference really.

I agree, I would lose two work days. I would rather see more 3:00 Sunday games, than a Monday game at home. If we are in the playoff hunt, i think theres a chance we will be on MNF. Remember, next year they will be able to change games, instead of being stuck with a game like we had this past Monday night.

Sunday noon, Sunday 3:00, Sunday 7:30, Monday Night, Thursday Night, Saturday... I don't care, I'll be there.

Anyone remember the last MNF in Houston? Hint: It was a new beginning of sorts.

gwallaia 12-29-2004 10:49 AM

Hmmmm, was it Glanville's debut? Against the Eagles??

TheTim5125 12-29-2004 10:55 AM

I actually think we will get a MNF game... we played pretty well against some good teams and If the Jags are getting all this publicity for being an upstart team then why wouldn't we get just a lil... even if we don't get one we'll surely get a SNF game.

texansfan88 12-29-2004 10:56 AM

Pittsburgh @ Houston should draw consideration

Nope ... I have a bit of an advantage here -- I'm looking at my ticket stub from that game with a little note I wrote on it...otherwise I wouldn't remember either. Another hint: It wasn't as far back as the Glanville era.

wasnt alive way back when, but wasn't Earl Campbell big game on a monday night?

If you're thinking about the 35-30 win over Miami, Yes. November 1978. But there were several MNF games in Houston since then. Earl had several big games on MNF but probably none were as big and memorable as that one.

gwallaia 12-29-2004 11:12 AM

I know the Oilers lost to the Giants on a Monday Night game, can't remember if it was in the Dome or at Meadowlands.
