Default Monday Night Football is officially dead.

Mike Tirico, Joe Theismann, and Tony Kornheiser are going to be the commentators. On Mike and Mike in the morning Greeny is trying to hype it up saying Kornheiser is the closest thing to Howard Cossell thats been on the show

Golic isn't having any of it though and had a weird look on his face at that comparison.

I can't stand Theismann who is one of the worst commentators in sports, he offers absolutely zero substance and Kornheiser is just going to turn it into a sideshow.

Kind of an off question related to the thread topic...

Are they keeping the MNF 'Are You Ready For Some Football!' opening? As soon as I hear that song, I get pumped. Anyone know the answer to this one?

Good question. I would like to think they are. I hope so.

Any word on where Al Michaels will land? I thought I heard something about Sunday Night Football on NBC, but not sure if that's official.

I'll reserve judgement on MNF right now...but keeping Theisman does not instill a lot of confidence at this point. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

just mute the show and watch it. I started doing that with Dennis Miller's useless commentary and I gotta say it actually made the game much better, for me.

I prefer the old MNF intro music (they still play some of it) to the Hank Jr. stuff. I went to a STP concert where they used the old MNF theme to start their show. That got the crowd pumped.

Old MNF theme music

Tirico - Like it
Theisman - Hate it
Kornheiser - Would rather bring back Miller

I like Tirico calling college games so we'll see how he does here.

Always been a fan of Kornheiser so I'll be biased on his commentary.

Hopefully one of the producers will fall on Theisman's leg and he'll call it a career.

I agree, I hope they dump the Hank Williams and bring back the old school theme with the two helmets crashing together. Now THAT got me pumped up.

But what do I know, I actually liked Dennis Miller on MNF. He was the only reason I would watch a 41-7 game in the fourth quarter.

Yes. Exactly. Dennis Miller needs to be on MNF. I loved his stories and comparisons! Dennis Miller brought intelligent discussion to football and that is not a bad thing. Bring back MILLER!

That's my attitude.

I really don't like Monday Night Football, so I'll give this move a chance. Hopefully MNF will be better on the slicker ESPN than it was on ABC.

yeah, I did, too. But most folks don't want to look through a thesarus (or dictionary for that matter) while watching a football game.

I heard the Tony Kornheiser interview on the Dan Patrick show today, and I must say, he's actually pretty funny (in a dry way). He's warning everyone that he'll suck on MNF, so don't put him on a pedestal. He also said he would make fun of Theisman alot, so that in itself will be entertaining.

Althought I respect Madden the man, his commentary has been stale for awhile. It's time for a breath of fresh air on MNF, so I look forward to the new line up.

Now we just have to wait six friggin' months!

I can understand people being bored with Madden--lord knows I hate listening to Theisman--but I still like to hear from people who have a chance of knowing what they are talking about. Kornholio is a blow hard who doesn't bother to do sufficient research to go off on as he does--a national version of Richard Justice IMO, at least with regard to football. Of course I also don't like never could make it work guys like Andre Ware either--somehow it just seems wrong to listen to him talk about what it takes to be a successful QB. I'd rather listen to Aikman, Madden, Jimmy Johnson, etc.--guys who actually succeeded in the sport.
