That's the one. Week 11 of the 1994 season.

13-10 Giants. The new beginning I was referring to is that it was Jeff Fisher's first game as a head coach.

The NFL in all their infinite scheduling wisdom had the Oilers on MNF three times that year (they finished 2-14 if you recall). I guess since they were 12-4 in '93 they thought they would be good in '94 too but I'm sure the schedulers didn't know about Bud's warning that '93 was the Super Bowl or Bust year that resulted in the breakup of that highly talented and highly compensated group of players.

I think the Texans have a good shot of getting on MNF.

Here are my reasons.....

1. Because of the style of play the Texans rarely get blown out. So you can usually count on a good game.

2. Unlike Cinci, Clevland, and Jax....Houston is not a small market team. Houston is a big market team, with deep pockets. Where is football bigger than in Texas?

3. Houston has some good "off the ball stories". I.E. The Golden boy David Carr, the humble superstar Andre Johnson, rising Rookie star Dunta Robertson.

4. Many expect the Texans to be a playoff caliber team next year.
