    Re: Monday Night Football Commentators



    I realize he played for Philadephia, but I’ll never be able to watch him on ESPN again without thinking of those wet slurping noises he made whenever he talked about the Eagles.
    His broadcast was to Philly. If you were an Eagles fan listening to the broadcast back to Baltimore you would have probably thought them homers...because they are. Jaws was concerned with talking about the Eagles because his audience was Eagles fans. For the NFL Network rebroadcast we got our team for the first half and theirs for the second. At first I was annoyed but then I realized he was talking to Eagles fans for the most part.

    People were saying the same thing, when Madden joined MNF, about it being just him & Michaels. But obviously, people got used to it.

    Anytime something changes, that was as "traditional" as monday night football, there will seem to be a let-down. But NFL Football, is NFL Football, and it's not like the announcers are that bad. I like Tirico & Theisman; and Tony Cornhole won't last 2 seasons on MNF. We'll get used to whomever takes on the roles as ESPN's MNF announcers.

    Also, after we've heard them for a few months & the games begin to matter, it will become easier to listen to them. I wouldn't sweat it over the announcers. Will just take some time to get used to them.

    Just my $0.02

    I may be in the minority but I think Tony has done great thus far. Of course, I am a big fan, read his books and I listened to his radio show religiously. Don't really mind Theismann as much as some do, and Tirico is solid.
    ''You'd love to go on the first day but I'm glad for the situation I'm in,'' he said. ''Baltimore knows how to play defense.''
