The Cardinals played because they looked on paper like they should be better and Matt Leinart was drafted. We will have to have two decent, winning seasons or one totally spectacular one to get on Monday night.

Don't hold your breath. It will be a couple of years at least.

Cardinals built a new stadium that went on display.

That stadium is hosting the National Championship and Super Bowl soon.

Texans will not be on Monday Night Football for a long time, if ever, for obvious reasons.

The same reason the Titans haven't had a primetime game since 2004. Both teams suck.

I agree with this entirely. It is about ratings.


The truth of the matter is, had we taken Bush...we'd be in the Saints' primetime lineup this year.

We have no "face of the franchise". When people think of the Texans all they think of are who we don't have.

Default Re: Monday Night Football

I'm actually glad we haven't played on Monday night. Every nationally televised game we've played in we've been throttled severly. When we put together a couple good seasons we'd have a better chance. Until we can play consistant football, let's stick with Sundays at noon.

Only reason I'd want to see Texans in Monday Night Football would be because I cannot regularly get Texans games on TV where I live.

Other than that I dont wan't to give people more reason to hate on the team.

That is a possibility just so ESPN can line up and whack the Texans organization for being so inept...but I still doubt it happens.

We don't deserve MNF or even SNF. Until the organization pulls its collective head out of its arse, we don't deserve anything other than more years of bad and embarassing football for us Texans fans.

The vast majority of your Monday night teams are last years' playoff teams and marginal teams in huge tv markets like the Giants, Jets, and Bears.

I think ESPN figured they would get huge ratings from southern California with Matt Leinart and the Cardinals.

Oh, and the cowgirls always play at least one Monday night because half-whits everywhere love the cowgirls.

With the flex scheduling, I doubt we see too many bad teams on a national spotlight.
