A lot of you tuned out of last night's game, and rightfully so...the game was pretty uneventful. While the game moved at a snails pace, the action in the booth was frenzied throughout the night. Jaws and Tony argued and bickered multiple times during the contest, Drew Carey mentioned CBS and Tirico almost lost it, and most importantly Steve Young made an appearance during the 4th quarter.
On the surface it seemed like the ex-49ers QB was there to talk about San Franciso, but it quickly turned into something more. Almost immediately Jaws exclaimed, "Great now we can talk about Football!", and the two completely took over the booth for the better part of the 4th quarter. Kornheiser was completely locked out and Tirico couldn't even keep up with the two.
So my questions to you are....Was this just a SF related trip upstairs for Steve, or are they trying a few new things out? Who would you prefer between Kornheiser and Young? And could the booth be tolerable with two ex-QBs as analysts?
I'm not starting any rumors here just throwing some ideas around. After mentioning at the end of October that Kornheiser was heading back to radio many of you proclaimed that he had done this last year as well. While that is true he does have a year-to-year contract and can be dropped, or quit after any season. Tony is great at most of what he does, but being a Football Analyst isn't one of them. Even though I think Monday Night Football would be better off without him, I don't know how much better it would be with Tirico, Jaws, and Young.
What say you?
