Mike Tirico, Joe Theismann and Tony Kornheiser calling the games??

This announcing team already sounds and smells kinda bad.
I don't believe ESPN is going to put out half the quality product on Monday Night Football the way ABC did.

Tirico will be ok, Kornheiser has potential, but Theismann I can't stand. Of course, I'm a little biased...

tirico is the best out of anyone. he is sooo prepared and loves wat he does and puts a lot of passion into his calls. theismann will put u to sleep and kornheiser will make u throw up w/ his sarcasm but tirico was a great choice.

NBC must be breathing a big sigh of relief. They had no viable Plan B for Al Michaels not jumping with Madden and were having Cris Collinsworth broadcast practice games as the announcer rather than analyst.

Tirico, Theismann & Kornheiser is an upgrade over Patrick, Theismann, McGuire but definitely the B team compared to what NBC will be presenting on Sunday nights.

Of course, since it is the games and not the presentation that makes me decide to watch, it is much ado about nothing in terms of what I will be watching next fall.

Kornheiser? I like PTI and all but Kornheiser? Has he ever announced a game in his life? I think Tirico is a good choice but I could never stand Theismann. Theismann is such a biased moron its not funny. I think the only time I'll watch MNF next season is when the Steelers play.
