Monday Night Football on ESPN

I don't know about you, but I prefer the Guinness men. 'BRILLIANT!!"


Oh yeah, Fox need to replace Jillian Barbarie with The Weather Channel's Hillary Andrews

I watch the game to watch the game... whoever is in the booth or the sidelines doesn't mattter much to me...

I'd have to say, though, last year Tirico did a couple games with Sterling Sharpe, and they did very well..

1st, they purged themselves of Mike Patrick, which makes me so happy on so many different levels, I don't know where to begin. Cutting Paul Maguire is fine, knowledgeable guy, but his schtick with Joe was getting old.

Joe doesn't bother me as much as he does others. But adding Kornheiser was a stroke of genius. I hated the guy for the longest time, but he is an extremely intelligent man, and won't take any **** from Joe, which will be funny the first time it happens.

I like Tirico, when I watched him do a few college games, he never got in the way of the action. He recognizes that he is an accessory, and not the main event.

The waiting drove me mad....

Now if only he can teach that to Theisman. I don't mind him (Joe) in he first half, but his fillers later on are just bad. I like Kornheiser, and it'll be interesting to see how the chemistry meshes.

I like the cast of MNF on ESPN. I just hope they are able to maintain that "ambiance" that Sunday Night Football had. Sunday night was most times better than monday night, in my opinion

Signing Kornheiser was BRILLIANT!!! I love this guy. PTI is hilarious because of him and Wilbon. I think he brings so much wit, knowledge, and humor to the game, but I also think he recognizes that his job is to talk about sports, not be a sideshow.

I agree with ya B, I really like Tirico, Theisman is Theisman, and I love me some Korn too.
