Certainly at some point when the NFL schedule was being made, the thought had to have been that Joe Flacco and Johnny Manziel would be going head-to-head in Monday Night Football tonight.
But boy oh boy how things have changed. Manziel has been demoted to 3rd string quarterback after going out and boozing it up a couple months after admitting he had an alcohol problem and seeking treatment-- and promising the team once again that he was going to stay away from the booze-- and Joe Flacco has been lost to injury for the first time in his eight year career with a knee injury.
So who will the quarterbacks be? Josh McCown for the Browns (yikes!) versus Matt Shaub for the Ravens (yikes!), with Jimmy Clausen as the #2 in Baltimore (YIKES YIKES YIKES!).
So needless to say, this game will still be entertaining, albeit for non-traditional reasons.
This is your Monday Night Football Open Thread... Have fun!
