Gruden and Jaws will be a great team in the booth. Solid takes from both of them

Sweet, I have never despised an announcer as much as kornhole. Lets see what Gruden can do. I wasn't overly impressed with his effort on the draft coverage but at least what ever comes out of his mouth will be football relevant.

Excellent! Should be a move towards more straight-forward football analysis.

I don't mind a little comedy in the booth, but Tony K. just wasn't funny.

I just don't see Gruden cutting it. There's no polish there at all. This is a lateral move, IMO.

Wow, ESPN gets some sanity. Kornhole was the worst. Fact is, ESPN doesn't need more people in the booth for MNF, they need fewer people. They should go with one play-by-play guy and one analyst. I prefer Dan Fouts.

If the game sucks, it doesn't matter who is in the booth. All the clowns in the world aren't gonna make the game more interesting. What they need is a guy who can explain the game in a manner that keeps the game interesting. A guy like Dan Fouts can do that.

it doesn't matter when you figure Gruden will be interviewing for a coaching gig in the future

....I don't recall a broadcast where I thought Kornhollio was ever enjoying the game.

so why not get someone that you know is gonna be there for 3 years? all the turnover tells me that ESPN/ABC really doesnt' have a clue what they're looking for out of that spot. I think they're just tossing people against the wall to see who sticks and who doesn't screw it up. Gruden's got no experience and could be a stammering nightmare.

+1. Exactly right about the need to go back to two in the booth and I like Fouts, too.

I'd shoot Fouts if I though I could get away with it. Give me Jaws and a play-by-play guy. It's all you really need.

Yep he sucks no doubt...but was he worse than Namath or Dennis Miller? Tough call...MNF has had some awful announcers for sure.

Turnover in the booth might be the only way try and keep it interesting. Every few years, new guy in the booth, whoohoo!

Jaws is ok. He's a little goofy, but he knows the game.

Gruden didn't exactly blow my skirt up when he was called upon during this past draft to provide some insight. They kept lobbing him softballs and he really didn't do anything with the opportunities he was given IMO.

Having said that, he's probably still an upgrade over Kornheiser. Then again, so is your average deaf-mute.
