    Re: Say it's so for Joe!!

    Im not a huge Jaworski fan or anything, but anything is better than Theisman. My uncle used to be not in charge, but kinda ran the special olympics in dc for a few years. He had the job of calling notable people to come and cheer for the kids. He said he called theisman and as soon as theisman was asked to come to the special olympics he told him don't bother me with this b.s.-FU-K THEISMAN!
    Wait, if there's cat food in this bag............................
    I HAVE TO CHECK ON JOLLY!!!!

    Don't let the door hit you in the a$$ Theisman and Kornhollio you should be next!


    I thought with ESPN taking over Monday nights that we would get serious football and then it turned into a love fest with celebs and worse than the original Monday night football.

    Hopefully this is the start of turning it around.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Although my hate for Theisman was considerable and I am extremely happy he is gone, I will leave the volume on mute until this weiner face loser is off the show. >

    Yeah he is just as pathetic as Theisman.
    They should bring back the guy they used to have for Sunday night football, I believe is name was Paul Maguire.
    I liked him.

    I would be fine with a two-man booth, with just Tirico and Jaws.

    Incredible...I actually posted something that was true!


    I like JAWS....
    He is knowledgable and still has a sense of humor.
    His quick wit will keep Cornholio in his place.

    Actually...I really dont know what to think of Cornholio....he never could be himself around Ego Joe without worrying about upsetting him....

    Thanks LT & ESPN for taking Joe out of the game!!
    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

    Ummm....maybe it was because you are a DOPE


    THEISMANN "SHOCKED" BY MOVE

    Neil Best of Newsday reports that ESPN's Joe Theismann was caught flat-footed by the decision to bump him off of the Monday Night Football broadcast and replace him with Ron Jaworski.

    "I was shocked," Theismann told Newsday on Monday.
    "It was completely unexpected, especially when the meeting is started with, 'Boy, you had a great year. You did everything we asked you to do and more, and we appreciate it.'"

    Previously, Theismann had said that he would not be commenting on the situation until he fully understood what had occurred.
    It now sounds like he fully understood it from the outset.

    A guy who understood what had happened even before Theismann is Ron Jaworski, who reportedly was offered the job on Thursday night.

    But the reason for the decision is still unclear.
    Per Newsday, ESPN exec Norby Williamson said that the network was not "unhappy" with Theismann and that "he is a phenomenal game analyst."
    Williamson claims that ESPN was merely hoping to improve the production.
    Presumably from "phenomenal" to "super-terrific."

    Theismann's version?
    He says he was told that "in reviewing the tapes they noticed when the conversation from Mike [Tirico] and Tony [Kornhesier] got back to me, I talked about football."
    (As opposed to . . . wrestling?)

    Kornheiser told Newsday that, in his view, there was "talking in parallel lines without enough intersection," and Kornheiser accepted blame for that.
    But he welcomes the arrival of Jaworski.
    "I think Jaws laughs a lot," Kornheiser said.
    "God, I love the sound of laughter in a booth."


    Which always sounds much better than laughter at a booth.

    Theismann, per Newsday, is still under contract for four more years.
    ESPN will offer him another role, possibly (per Newsday) on ESPN/ABC Saturday night college football.


    As we see it, why not reunite Theismann with Mike Patrick and Paul Maguire?
    Though the trio drove many a viewer batty while working Sunday night NFL games, there seems to be a greater tolerance for huff, puff, and fluff in the coverage of the collegiate version of the sport, possibly because the sheer volume of NCAA contests aired on television has caused the collective audience to become numb to the crappy commentating to which we are regularly subjected.

    The question, however, is whether Theismann will be willing to accept this demotion in order to continue to cash in.

    "I've swallowed my pride on many occasions before," Theismann told Newsday.
    "I imagine people think they know me and that I have an ego that can't do that.
    But I love football.
    Yes, this hurts.
    It's a shock.
    It's disappointing.
    But it doesn't change my appreciation and admiration for the people I work with at ESPN."
    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.
