What the heck happened to the once excellent mondy night football?

Just awful just dismal.  The play by play guy whoever he is is not good,   Witten is lousy and Booger is awful.  This used to be the flag ship game of football and had the flag ship announcers.

Just blech!

(Oh and I want Pete Carmichael to be our next head coach)

It is awful. At least they show more than the same 5 teams over and over and over. Not sure when the stations are going to realize former football players are rarely the best announcers

I wonder why Carmichael isn’t one of those “must have” candidates around firing season?

Im asking out loud I don’t know much about him other then he’s Sean Payton’s right hand.....

Did they just give Brees that record? 

They show family on field 

Start talking up record 

Brees throws to WIDE OPEN receiver 

Redskins CB doesn’t even attempt to tackle 

fishy 

In the second quarter? Haha, why would they bother? It’s not like there was any chance that Brees wasn’t getting that record tonight.

Not to diminish the accomplishment in any way, I thought the same thing. Seems a bit too ... um... story book. No?

Kinda like the strahan and favre show

Never mind what happened to MNF. What's happened to Suzy Kolber? Is it me, or does she get hotter and hotter the older she gets?

I don't know what to say. I liked Mike Tirico, but not much else in the last 15 years... but then again, I think Dierdoff was great and I enjoy Fouts and Tasker.. and most of you hate them. So i don't know what this annoucing line up looks like that you guys want.. i've heard a lot of people praise Romo, and I think he's a terrible fit. I don't like his casual storytime approach.

Witten is so unnatural. It’s awful to watch. Booger isn’t half bad, but that in the context of the other two sucking.

Watching witten is painful he looks at his comrade not to he camera when he speaks.... new..... but yes it’s bad

Days of enjoying, waiting for MNF are over sad to say.  Used to wait for matchup, watching teams I haven’t seen pre red zone channel listening to Al Frank and Dan.  Was a simpler and better time.  Now everyone is an expert including 75% of this board

Remember these guys? 

Remember when Sunday afternoon nfl was 6 hours of magic time? 

Man nfl broadcasts have really slipped 

I know Summerall is the best voice ever but man it gives me chills 

Summerall used to put me to sleep.  I remember it used to take him a half hour to announce the Vikings player named Kai Lee Wong

They should have kept Tirico, at least I feel like I'm watching an exciting game with his voice.

Witten and McFarland are trying hard but I think they can do better.  They should try to get an ex-QB in there not named Jay Cutler.

Fox paid more, so they put all the good games on Thursday nights this year, look at what we have once Fox started doing the broadcast after Jets/Browns

Week 4: Vikings at Rams 

Week 5: Colts at Patriots

Week 6: Eagles at Giants

Week 7: Broncos at Cardinals 

Week 8: Dolphins at Texans

Week 9: Raiders at 49ers

Week 10: Panthers at Steelers

Week 11: Packers at Seahawks

Week 12: Falcons at Saints

Week 13: Saints at Cowboys

Week 14: Jaguars at Titans

Week 15: Chargers at Chiefs 

There are some seriously good games scheduled for multiple weeks.  Hell, even the Raiders/49ers has that battle for the bay area angle to it.

NFL announcers are mostly terrible (whereas they used to be mostly terrific).  Remember in the 1980's when we had Vin Scully, Pat Summerall, Dick Enberg, Merlin Olsen, Charlie Jones, Don Criqui, Al Michaels (in his prime),Tom Brookshier, John Madden, Howard Cosell, Frank Glieber, Jack Buck, Marv Albert, Bob Costas, Curt Gowdy, Merle Harmon, etc.

Other than a few exceptions, who's any good now?  Beth Mowens?
