Time to axe MNF?

From where I sit it looks like the NFL should drop one of it's weekday games...Monday's.

There has been all kinds of whining about how rotten the Thursday night games have been.  Sure, they haven't been award winning, but we have been subjected to some brutal Monday nighters too. Let's break down the numbers.  Denver, Philadelphia, the Giants and Jets have played on both. Only the Broncos and Jets are over .500. Five teams from Thursdays have winning records. Including Kansas City, Seattle and San Francisco with a combined 3 losses. Of the three Monday night teams above .500 only New Orleans and Cincinnati are more than a game over. Atlanta, Washington, Oakland and Pittsburgh are all 2-4, while Houston is 2-5, Minnesota a pathetic 1-5. Thursday night teams are 16 games over the break even mark...Monday's representatives an embarrassing 7 under. Yes, Monday night football is a tradition. Sure, Thursdays are new. But, the Giants and Vikings were brutal Monday night. Never mind sitting in a bar feeling like you're at the game...it felt like the players were just as drunk.  I want to see a good game, between two good teams.  And right now, that's on Thursday night.

At least that's how I see it...and I sit in the cheap seats.
