View Full Version : Monday Night Football Crew absolutely Horrid

Monday Night footballs crew is absolutely horrid.

Mike Tirrico is a good announcer but he gets buried under a ton of crap that spews from the other 2 talking heads they brought in to support him.

I've always found Theisman to be one of the worst announcers of all time. Some of the things that come out of his mouth are absolutely mind boggling and idiotic.
I never thought I'd find another that could trump his ineptness as an announcer.

However, this Kornhole guy is an absolute cocky loud mouthed windbag idiot. The guy loves nothing more than to just hear himself argue about anything no matter how large or small. His personality is fine for his PTI ego show of two guys trying to get the drop on the other in arguing about sports but it is truly annoying in the role of an announcer. I want to hear good analysis about the game.

How many times did we have to hear Jacksonville was "making a statement to the world" if they beat Pittsburgh tonight?

You don't make a "statement to the world" by beating a division rival at home early in the season. This happens all the time. It's a good win for Jacksonville but no statements about a new dynasty being in town was made. :shakeno:

How about the last 10 minutes of the game where Kornhole kept taking the focus off of the game to prod Theisman to declare the game is over. It was rediculous.
They'd be talking about the game and all he'd have to offer is "so you think it's over now?" in a cocky tone.
Theisman of all people kept verbally beating him down with examples of why the game was clearly not over yet and how quickly things can change yet Kornhole just wouldn't let up. Idiot.

Anyone else annoyed with the tandem of Theisman and Kornhole as much as I am?

ESPN's Monday Night Football radio crew is great and they should switch them into the TV booth. Until they do I'll be turning the radio on for the games.

Kornheiser and Wilbon are good in PTI...but I don't think he fits with Tirico and Theisman. Theisman's personailty and non stop talking ruins most broadcasts. Tirico seems more fitted for college ball.

theismann is great.

early in the 4th quarter: "the jaguars have the lead here, and while most people think they should be running the ball, i like that they're going for it and throwing the ball."

later one: "the jaguars are doing the smart thing here by running the ball to take time off the clock."

anyway, i like kornheiser and tirico is the best, although he's much better during college games. i think he just likes college better and shows more energy. anyone remember the FSU/louisville game from '02? he was going CRAZY during every play, it was great!

I think people are way to critical of announcers and analysists. They all do a good job and are unique in their own way.

is it just me or are radio announcers 10 times better than tv announcers? I've just started listening to bears games on wbbm 1080 out of chicago and those guys are the most exciting, enjoyable commentators ive ever heard

radio commentators generally have to be better at their job because of the medium.

and i agree with rocky.

Theeseman(thats how it is supposed to be pronounced before he wanted it to rhyme with Heisman) is a moron.

They are pretty bad.

They make Madden look like a shakespearian actor.

I absolutely can not stand Theismann and Kornhiser just seems like he's trying a bit too hard to impress IMO.

Theismann is such a tool. I can not stand him. I actually enjoy Kornhiser

Yeah, I really like Kornhiser on PTI, just have to adjust to him on MNF I guess.

Everyone is way too hard on anyone who calls the games. You guys should here the goofs in Canada calling the CFL to see.

The only guy in the NFL who I don't like is Thiesman.

Another idiot comment last night:

It was 1st and 10 with about 3:30 left

Jax runs for 2 yards making it 2nd and 8

Jax is called for holding

Joe the idiot says Pitt should decline it becasue it will give Jax another play to take another 40 seconds off the clock

Pitt accepts the penalty and no extra time is wasted because when there is a penalty the clock does not start until the ball is snapped

well he made a good point actually. if they accept the penalty, they get an extra down, meaning an extra 40 seconds. if they decline it, they'll have to punt on 4th down, saving 40 seconds.

I hate theismann.

Tony Korn is great on PTI, he just needs to find himself in the booth. I agree that everyone is way too critical of annoucers. I thought they were pretty good last night.

I don't agree.

You can be unique and still do the job at hand which is talking about the game in an intelligent way.

Theisman has proven he can't handle announcing or analysis in an intelligent way. Kornhole has proven that he could really care less about adding anything objective about the game and cares much more about turning the broadcast into a PTI episode.

I don't think it's being too critical to call out someone that is completely lacking in their job.

Tirico does a great job but he's getting buried by these 2 especially Kornhole. He has as much business being in the booth as Dennis Miller did.

Anybody watch the MNF second game from last week? Those announcers; Dick Vermil and two guys whose names I forget absolutely rocked.

I was going to say the same thing. It was brad nessler and ron jaworski. I thought they were excellent, they worked well with one another, and it is no suprise since vermeil was jaworski's coach and they have known one another for years. I have heard a lot of people say the same thing about this trio.

Nessler, Vermeil, and Jaworski should be the team after this season. Perhaps let Jaworski be a sideline analyst like Siragusa is on FOX.

I hope they give this booth some time and fans chill out. Im tired of the constant complaining and griping from fans over the Monday Night Crew. If its a great matchup the game is great, the only time I give a crap about listening to what the announcers are talking about is if the game is getting ugly. Otherwise I just watch the game. It doesnt ruin it or make it when the guys are saying stupid things. Tirico is a great play by play guy, they re the important ones.

well he made a good point actually. if they accept the penalty, they get an extra down, meaning an extra 40 seconds. if they decline it, they'll have to punt on 4th down, saving 40 seconds.

The first scenario is without taking the penalty and running every play

1st and 10 with 3:30 left
2nd and 8 with 2:35 left
3rd and 6 at 2:00 warning
Punting with 1:15 left

Now take the 10 yard penalty

1st and 10 with 3:30 left
1st and 20 with 3:25 left
2nd and 18 with 2:30 left
3rd and 16 at 2:00 warning
Punting with 1:15 left

So you gain 10 yards without losing anytime. Even if the 2:00 warning was not around by taking the penalty all you lose is the 5 seconds the previous play took.

i can't stand theisman... i like kornheiser on PTI, and i'd like to think the reason he's being so "disruptive" w/theisman (especially towards the end of the jax/pit game) is because he doesnt like joe either. aside from that any time kornheiser takes a stab at theisman, or disagrees w/him wether he's right or wrong i'm happy, because i really dont like theisman. i'm glad he's just got enough balls to do it.

i think the theisman/kornheiser thing is a big act. theisman has been on PTI many many times since the show started, they've always had a fun relationship going on. i'm guessing because kornheiser has been a writer in washington and probably wrote some bad things about theisman during his playing days, theisman has a little angst for kornheiser, but....whatever. they're really old now and i doubt they have the energy to care.
