    I think I am done with MNF. The three guys calling the game were just plain awful. It was like announcers from a high school football game. I think they rambled on about meaningless nothings and personal comments...only interrupting their conversation to call the game. Once Charles Barkley joined them it got even worse.

    At one point they were even talking about Elizabeth Hasselbeck and how men should watch The View.

    Awful.

    I actually enjoyed it when Charles joined in.

    But they do need to talk more about the game.

    I worship at the altar of Tony Kornheiser, but he's awful on MNF and even he knows it. But are you gonna turn down millions to do a job just because you stink?

    He seems 10x more comfortable than last year. As a poster above mentioned, the segments with Barkley were great.

    The worst part was that they kept trying to figure out how to convince us that the skins stank and that McNabb was going to kick their asses. So, how did that work out boys?

    I like the Buck/Aikman duo on Fox. I think Buck has won several Emmys for his game calling.

    The Skins do stink. We're just stinkier.

    True, the homerism really showed through last night. It's usually not too bad, but Barkley got in there with a clear and vocal bias with no attempt to hide it which just seemed to bring out the Eagle in Jaws a little much. For instance, I STILL think they got the call right on the field on the fumble, but Bark and Jaws both just dismissed the others attempt to say, "It looks like it's starting to slip before he's all the way down."

    I've liked Jaws forever. He truly knows his Xs and Os. Tirico is mildly annoying but mostly innocuous. Kornheiser is the WORST. The WORST, Jerry.

    The bigger problem is that they've had two pathetic games so far. Next week won't be much better but the NE/Cincy game should be a barnburner.
