If this is the case and the Ravens do end up opening on the road, it's going to be a shame. IMO they really haven't fully investigated the options. Wednesday is certainly an option. The game last year between the NY Giants and Cowboys was on Wednesday night because the President was speaking on Thursday. I agree it would not make a big deal by moving it to Wednesday.
Also, why not Tuesday? I know that's early in the week, but it would alleviate all the issues that Wed and Thur present. I would suggest Monday and/or the Sunday before, but that is college football opening weekend.
