Seriously. Three MNF games for the Clowns (who didn't even make the playoffs) and the defending Super Bowl champion N.Y. Giants only get one MNF appearance. WTF?
MNF is not the deal it used to be. They have four prime time games, open the season on Thursday, have two Sunday night games (the new premier game of the week), and a MNF game. they also have three national 4:15 games. Seems about right to me. (The MNF is against Cleveland, so the comparison isn't totally justified.)
NFC East got a ton of love in that regard this year though. But perhaps rightfully so, as they had the toughest aggregate schedule, had no losing teams, the number one seed, and the eventual champ. I'm pretty pumped.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.
