    Great move by the network to get rid of this waste of space wanna be funny man in the booth named Tony Kornheiser

    I am glad we won't have to listen to his 'fantasy team' this season

    From what I saw of Chucky on the broadcast of the draft,He seems to have a good feel for the booth and has a good sense of humor and smarts of the game and likely to be much better than Tony.

    I do think this will be a one year deal,Jon is too good of a coach to be out of the sidelines for too long - Just like Cowher,I expect Gruden to be a HC somewhere next season.

    Not a huge fan of Gruden either, seems as though he wants to be somekind of wise guy talking out of the side of his mouth.. he will bring some depth to the booth, certainly better than entertainment value...

    What kind of delay do you think they are going to have for Gruden's F-Bombs?

    I thought the worst guy ever in the booth on MNF was Dennis Miller but I was wrong,Kornheiser was the worst.

    I never had a problem with Tony K., but then again I don't really pay attention to the broadcasters when I'm watching games. So if it makes y'all happy, then it's a good thing.

    Maybe it's a family trait - my dad likes listening to John Madden. ;)

    Thank God, Kornholio was the worst of a bad lot.

    Good question about the f-bomb delay. Wonder what they are gonna do :confused:

    I'm actually disappointed. I would often break out hysterically laughing at his horrendous attempts at humor. He was like an unfunny Seinfeld. I always thought the producers were missing something great when they failed to add a clown horn sound effect after every attempted punch line.

    I didn't mind Kornheiser in the slightest, but Gruden was fantastic on the NFLN draft coverage, and I expect he'll be tremendous on MNF. That's a really good 3some imo.

    It's about damn time they got rid of Kornhole.

    Here's a clip of "Gruden Wired"
    YouTube - Jon Gruden Wired
    He even gives Brady a mention.

    Grudan is a good choice, he's more laid back and brings in a coaching perspective that they haven't had yet.

    I liked Kornheiser but he tried too hard to make what he was saying seem to be coming from somewhere other than the sportswriter or fan's perspective..

    Comparing Tony Kornheiser to George Carlin is like comparing Forest Gump to Stephen Hawking.

    Not a big fan of Gruden personally (although he was probably the most vocal in defense of Belichick during Spygate), but he is pretty good as a talking head. I enjoyed his time on the NFL Network's draft coverage. I think he will be a major upgrade.

    I couldn't stand Kornheiser. The guy didn't know football enough to be in the booth. He also seemed to need to prove he knew football with all his useless facts.

    I seem to be in the minority on this one, because I don't like this. Oh, well, time will tell the tale.

    Kornheiser was lousy in the booth and it will give Gruden some pocket change before he replaces Charlie Weiss at Notre Dame.

    I like Kornheiser, but not for MNF. I really like him on his show PTI, but I was really getting tired of him talking about Brett Favre. I'm pretty sure he talked about him every week.

    yeah, i thought it was a toss-up. on the one hand dennis miller was really obnoxious and didn't know much about football; on the other hand, tony kornheiser was even more obnoxious but knew something about football. "Pick-em!"

    Therein lies the problem: as soon as Gruden gets a good coaching offer, he's gone from MNF.

    I don't think Kornheiser was in the booth to appeal to the die-hard football fans like most here on the board. He was the regular guy that would appeal to the casual fan and casual/rookie FF owner.

    Just my opinion.

    Is Gruden still bitter about the Snowbowl? Will he hate on the Pats when they play? That's all I am concerned about.

    I like Gruden, he wasn't too bad from what I saw on draft day. Not a huge fan by any means, but he will be music to my ears after Kornheiser and years of the McGuire/Theisman debacle.
