Default Sweet relief: Millen, Theismann replaced on Thursday nights

Quote:
The broadcasting pairing of Joe Theismann and Matt Millen -- otherwise known as the cruelest prank ever pulled on NFL fans -- is no more.

The NFL Network has announced that it'll have a new Thursday night broadcast crew, with Brad Nessler doing the play-by-play and Mike Mayock handling the analysis.

Bob Papa, who did the play-by-play with Millen and Theismann, is out of the Thursday night mix, too. He and Theismann will remain with the NFL Network, but in different roles.

Mayock has become known as a draft expert; sort of the NFL Network's answer to Mel Kiper Jr. That's selling him way short, though. He played briefly in the league in the early '80s, and has done a boatload of broadcasting work since. He's called college games, CFL games and NFL games.

Excellent. I love watching Mayock breakdown plays, players and strategy.

Millen doesn't bother me that much in the booth. But Mayock is definitely an upgrade.

I sure am glad Theismann is out though.

Me too! The game, I think, has passed him by. So much different now. Not that I didn't enjoy what he brought in that era, just that it's a totally different game today.

And the fact that he irratates me.
