Default **** Mike and Mike!!!

Howard Cosell is rolling in his grave. FU ESPN for desecrating the mystique of MNF by hiring these lame ass ****s.

I am turning down the volume on my set and listening to Kevin Harlan and Warren Moon on Westwood One instead.

They let Tirico do Monday night. They let Berman do MLB playoff games. Like this is anything new. But having said that, Mike and Mike actually werent so awful last year. They were better than anything with Kornheiser.

Tirico is the worst. An Uncle Tom with no charisma.

I will admit Gruden has made MNF tolerable again.

I actually like Mike and Mike. They know the game. Well, at least Mike does. Other Mike, he's just there to, you know...

Tirico is god awful, just awful. Remember the Pats-Broncos game last year when he started screaming about Cutler going off the field early in the game?
I can't stand him.

Best MNF crew was Ron Jaworski, Dick Vermeil and the other guy they had doing the 2nd MNF game.

Mike and Mike sound like two smooth talking car salesmen trying to one up each other. Not a real fan of them.

I am glad that 1600 has Vic and Gary in the AM - not that they are all that great, but at least they cover the local sports.

The best broadcast I'd ever heard was the first year ESPN did this back-to-back Monday Night opener. It was the 2nd crew of course, doing the late game of Oakland and KC maybe. Brad Nessler, Ron Jaworski, and DICK VERMEIL. Vermeil was excellent. Nessler was no BS. Jaworski was passable.

They have a pathological obsession with Tom Brady and the Patriots. You'd think no franchise could do anything before they won some titles.

And gimp's "girlie man" comedy is old next to his "big bear." (Can do without mental picture.)

I thought Mike and Mike and Mike for the first MNF last year was great. They actually called an impartial game (Unlike my least favorite Phil Simms). It was especially good to hear Ditka calling out both teams for mistakes and praising both teams when it was due. I have a guess that Ditka knows the game better than a lot of people and I appreciated his views and at least one of the other Mikes actually played the game so even though he may be a dope sometimes I appreciate his football knowledge and his perspective as well. There are WAY worse people to be calling a game than any of the three Mikes that called last year's MNF opener.

That was just uncomfortable to watch.

I do like Gruden and Jaws. Both give some good football insight. Tirico doesn't bother me, I'm impartial to him.

I like Mike and Mike, they have done a good job in the past. Gruden did a great job with the pats game. Love it when the people talking actually make sense

Hey man, what were the final results of your "How many ***** can I fit in my mouth" personal challenge you had going for the summer. I just remember the over/under was set at 15.

That was completely uncalled for.

On another note, I thoroughly enjoyed Gruden on MNF tonight.
