    Seriously, has there been one halfway decent matchup this season? If so, it's been maybe one, two tops.

    I call foul on Disney/ABC/ESPN. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!



    PS, your announcers suck formica counters. Pleas replace them in time for next season.

    Bored in Dallas on Monday nights. :)-

    Yeah, the games have been bad. That being said I like Mike Tirico, he's a good play by play guy.

    I'd like him a whole lot better if he knew the difference between a reverse and an around. Not that he's alone in that regard, but he really kept calling out reverses last night when they weren't happening.

    I actually kind of enjoyed last night. The conditions made the low scoring enjoyable (well, funny?), as opposed to being painful to watch. That punt that just stuck in the ground was awesome.


    But yeah, most of the games have sucked.

    i enjoyed last night too, which is saying something considering the dolphins were involved. that packers/broncos game was ridiculously good, but yeah mostly lousy matchups.

    WWE RAW was far more enjoyable than Monday Night Football this year.

    And that's saying something.

    Was Buffalo/Dallas MNF? That's the only one I enjoyed. :p

    It could be worse. Theismann could still be in the booth. But then again, Jaws is just as bad.

    This is related to football commentary in general, but am I the only one who gets annoyed when these commentators say what a penalty is going to be before the ref says anything? And when he is wrong, he doesn't mention it? Yeah, good call smartass.

    They all do it. It's not just limited to the MNF crew.

    It has been rather boring this season. Sunday Night Football on NBC has not been bad at all, though.

    Sunday Night took all the good matchups that Monday Night used to have. And their good commentators for that matter. I liked the guys that used to call the games with Joe Theisman. If they would have replaced Joe with someone else instead of the other way around, it would have been better.

    Sunday Night has a couple lame games coming up though, like Cincy-Pit this week and finishing off the season with Bucs-Niners and Chiefs-Jets. [face_plain] I wonder if Pittsburgh will have that horrid field again.

    Let's face it, Monday Night Football went down the tubes once ABC decided to drop it in favor of Desperate Housewives. *rolls eyes*
