Honest question: Who is watching the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Pittsburgh Steelers tonight? …yeah, me neither. This may be one of the worst Monday Night Football games ever in the history of MNF.
Out of so many good match-ups this weekend, why this game? Seriously! This makes me wonder, what was the league thinking when it scheduled this boring game? Or maybe a better question would be: what does the league try to accomplish with this?
No disrespect, but this is one of the most unappealing games of the regular season, and yet it was chosen to be a MNF game… wow! Is this a marketing strategy by the league to promote teams or something? If it is, I do not understand it.
To make a long (and boring) story short, Roethlisberger will have a great performance. Cassel… not so much. Pittsburgh will not only crush Kansas City, but they will remind them of the problems that they have been carrying over throughout this season. And, the ratings of the NFL on tonight’s Monday Night Football will drop drastically.
Luckily for the NFL, football is America’s favorite sport, so tomorrow’s game will not have a negative impact on the next Monday’s match-up.
Tonight’s game is so pathetic that even NFL.com could not come up with a better description about the match-up than this one to promote it.
“Why this game is intriguing: A Monday Night Football game ranked this low? Say it ain't so. But so it is. Ben Roethlisberger and his merry band of burly running backs are rumbling along, while the Chiefs are doing just the opposite. Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel fired himself as defensive coordinator after last Thursday's loss to the Chargers, but is that cause for optimism? We'll see. The storyline to watch here is Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley, former Chiefs coach, taking on his old team. If Pittsburgh gets up big, will Haley rub it in? That is to say, how much will he rub it in? Bad blood still runs deep.”
So, what else is on TV tonight?
