Its only preseason, but beggars can't be choosers. I'd rather have a Green Bay game on Sunday night, but oh well.

That's awesome about time they get some national tv time other than thanksgiving. Being down here in Texas I don't get to see the Lions play as much as I wish. Here's to hoping they show more of their games.

I hear they are considering a regular season Monday Night Game so they can showcase Ford Field for the Super Bowl. With the young playmakers we have on offense its only natural we get a Monday night game. Its not like Monday night has had the best games recently either

No, Monday has not had the best games the last couple of years, but the fact reamins, unless you are the Raiders, if you don't have a winning record you don't have a Monday night game on your schedule. And as we all know, there hasn't been a winning record in Detroit since..........

I went to the last Monday night Lions game. It was a 35-0 loss to the Rams at the Silverdome in 2001. Ty Detmer started for us even though he had 7 INTs the game before. I am sure the ratings must have been terrible and the Lions effectively banned themselves from primetime games.
Why did we trade for Detmer again that year?
