    Gotta agree with the ex-Giants QB vote as well. I can't believe they are letting him do the playoffs. Maybe the network should put him on say Cleveland/St. Louis games. Horrible!

    Sadly, most sports casters suck these days. As the NFL play-offs are in full swing they get decidedly worse, if that is possible........'When Brady ties his left shoe before his right, he has a 37% lower pass completion ratio when passing into the left flat when the temp is 40 deg or colder."

    Who the F cares!

    I have to say that listening to Buck and McCarver broadcast any baseball game is painful at the very least.

    One of the best IMHO and one of the last of the old school guys who no longer does play by play (that I know of anyway), Warner Wolf.

    In the old days before the Pats became successful, when they weren't blacked out we would get Jerry Glanville and Beazley Reese. Gag me with a spoon. They are the all time worst.

    He's not half as bad as Gary McCord--who is a total jackass. I don't care what his golfing credentials are, the guy is absolutely annoying to listen to. The fact that Agusta won't let him in through the front gate is proof of that.

    I liked hearing Al Michaels call Myra Kraft, (deceased) Robert Kraft's widow. :puke1

    Well half the problem on MNF is fixed....


    For just the sixth time in its 42-year history on television, "Monday Night Football" next season will feature a two-person broadcast team.

    Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden will call the games for ESPN starting in 2012. Ron Jaworski is leaving the booth but has signed a five-year extension with ESPN in an expanded analyst role with the company.

    "I am grateful for having the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of working on 'Monday Night Football' the past five seasons with Mike Tirico, Jon Gruden and so many other talented people behind the scenes who make the show so great, and I look forward to bringing my passion and knowledge of the game to more fans in more places than ever before on any and all football topics," Jaworski said in a statement.

    Jaworski has been in the "Monday Night Football" booth for the past five seasons. He originally joined ESPN in 1990 and has worked in a number of roles, from sideline reporter to studio host to analyst.

    Jaworski will make regular appearances on "Sunday NFL Countdown," "NFL Matchup," "NFL Live," "NFL Kickoff," "Mike & Mike in the Morning" and PTI's "Five Good Minutes." He also will be featured in ESPN's NFL draft and Super Bowl programming.

    "I thank Ron for the great contributions he has made to 'Monday Night Football' and look forward to the many ways he will enhance our studio presentation from our NFL-branded shows to 'SportsCenter,' " ESPN president John Skipper said in the statement. "With two strong analysts in Ron and Jon, these moves will better utilize their strengths and benefit our entire NFL presentation."

    Tirico and Gruden will make their 2012 regular-season "Monday Night Football" debut Sept. 10. The 2012 NFL schedule will be released in the coming months.

    This will be the first time in 15 years that ESPN has used a two-person booth to call NFL games since Mike Patrick and Joe Theismann called "Sunday Night Football" from 1988 to 1997.

    So, it's Chucky and mini-Gumble next year.
    Ain't exactly Michaels and Madden, is it?
    I think they'll need some comic relief to break the rage/boredom.

    He can be a decent analyst outside of the play by play booth. In it, maybe due to encouragement from his producers (?) he didn't know when to shut up.

    I hope they aren't referring to Patrick and Theismann as the gold standard.

    Theismann. :puke1

    The joe buck/Troy aikman love fest is kinda funny, but as long as theisman isn't allowed near a booth I'll be okay.
