Antonio Brown Joins Critics Against Monday Night Football Scheduling

Antonio Brown Joins Critics Against Monday Night Football Scheduling

“Right after the game, you only have a certain amount of time for your body to recover,” Brown said. “I think they should take MNF out.

I know it’s cool.. but to turn around after is very difficult. Especially when banged up.” Brown’s sentiments support that of other players who have criticized the NFL for promoting player safety in the media but then having games on days that hurt the recovery timeline, while strictly playing on Sundays would afford athletes consistent recovery time.

Another instance of a player calling out the NFL’s weekly game schedule came from Richard Sherman in 2016 when he wrote an essay for the Players Tribune called Why I Hate Thursday Night Football. Pretty ironic from a guy who is now an analyst on Amazon Prime’s TNF show.

“The NFL preaches player safety,” Sherman wrote. – The league says it wants to do everything possible to protect its players. But when it comes down to it, the NFL doesn’t protect the players. . . .

It’s the Shield.” Perhaps in the future, the health of players and the schedules of teams will be more difficult, but until then, Brown must return to his dominant season.

A 3-8 week, Brown had an amazingly productive six-game stretch in which he topped at least 125 yards per game; unfortunately he got cold. Since Week 8, there has been only one game where a receiver had at least 95 receiving yards (Week 13, 114 yards).

With the Eagles struggling of late, the team will rely on him as a veteran to help them get back into rhythm in the final three games of the regular season before trying to avenge last year’s Super Bowl final loss. Fortunately for the Browns, Philly was gifted with a Christmas miracle.

Monday’s Christmas Day game against the Giants will be the team’s second consecutive MNF game, so his body has had optimal recovery time to add to his 1,314 yards this season.
