Thoughts?

I love Tirico. He's a class guy who calls games well; gets into the games, but not overly excited.

I hate Theismann. Consistently slurps star players, especially Ray-Ray.

I love Kornheiser...on PTI. Should be interesting to see how he fits in. He was obviously brought in to bring some levity to the crew, but hopefully it doesn't turn into a Dennis Miller situation.

Personally, I prefer a two-man crew over a three-man crew. Stepping in for Al Michaels is a tough task, but Tirico is solid.

With as much PTI as I have watched, how in the world is Kornheiser going to stay up late enough to finish a game?

I don't understand the 3 man crew either. Do they really think more people watch because of a former playing being in the booth. Why not let the people that actually do this for a living do the games? The people that are trained. I don't see anyone rushing to get Mike Tirico a shot at playing quarterback for the Skins.

At least Kornheiser is a sports reporter, as opposed to the idiotic idea of putting Dennis Miller in the booth.

Hell...since they were considering Rush Limbaugh when they gave the gig to Miller, it could have been worse.

Theisman disgusts me. Hopefully they have Lawrence Taylor guesting in the booth and he falls on the asshole's jaw this time.

Tirico will be good. Of course it won't take much to be better than Mike Patrick.

And best of all...no John Madden!

This will take some time getting used to. Kornheiser is good on PTI, but the booth may be different. I also heard the Michelle Tafoya AND Suzie Kolber will work the sidelines, sounds like they overstaffed for this one. Has to be better than Dennis Miller.

I really like all 3 guys, so it will be solid.
I am sick of Madden and his giant head. Glad he is gone.

Gone from Mondays, but don't worry, Madden and Michaels will be in the booth on Sunday nights on NBC!
