    This guy is clueless about football. He has no problem letting us all know that by asking stupid basic football questions to Theisman.

    "So Joe, how does one determine a completion and what exactly is a football move?"

    Kornheiser is, by far, the worst sportscaster I've ever heard. He makes Dennis Miller sound like a seasoned pro in the booth. This is definitely the lowest point for MNF broadcasting, IMO.

    the thing that i hate the most is when commentators make a mistake and don't correct themselves, and it seems to happen alot on the CBS commentators on texans games, they should hire me :yahoo:

    The broadcast team has had a raw deal, a LOT of MNF games have stunk. Makes you focus even more on them.

    I get sick of Kornheiser talking about the emotional aspects of the game or all the unrelated BS they yammer on about. IT'S FOOTBALL, FFS!

    I usually keep my TV muted so I don't have to be annoyed. Such a difference from Sunday Night Fooball, which I enjoy.

    Adding to what I said. Not only has Sunday had MUCH better games, but they have flex scheduling. W? 12 days notice, they'll make sure the commentators don't have to fill in a boring game.

    I was really hoping Kornheiser had asked Rhondi Barber, who of coure plays as a DB for Tampa Bay, what he thought of Bush since he's played against him in the NFL. Barber seemed cool, but candid.
    Actually, Kornheiser probably asked him off camera, and based on Barbers's answer didn't ask him the question on air. Kornheiser & Co. at ESPN would never do anything to compromise the rep of Bush.

    I don't mind Kornheiser as much. I despise Theisman. Never have liked him and never will.

    My thoughts exactly. We have this discussion every Monday.

    Kornheiser is a moron, though, I agree.
