MNF really jumped the shark when it jumped over to ESPN. It just lost the mystique it had and it feels like it has been "cheapened" by it's transition over to a cable network. There just seems to be something "less special" about a sporting event broadcast on cable versus on the "Big 4" networks.

This started happening long before the ABC/ESPN swap.

Remember ABC /ESPN are the same company so if they wanted to, they could have kept the teams together as they were before that.

Tony is not a problem. The HOMER JAWS is. I thought he sounded as if was going to get on his knees in front of McNabb after the game and offer him his services. he seemed angry at Tony for suggesting that Dallas had to win the game at home, which they did to stay crowned the favorite in the NFC. The thought of his precious eagles losing disturbed him. That kind of favoritism shouldnt be in the booth.

Bottom line, Jaws knows his stuff. The insight he brings about the game is well worth any supposed biased he may/may not bring.

And ESPN, quite putting the camera in the booth to show Korn-Hole's Komb-Over! I scream at the TV every time I see that bald head of his with 2 strands of hair going from one earlobe across the rest of that bald terrain to the other side of his head . I have no problem with being bald. It's when people try and mask their baldness by having comb overs, I just can't stand! :D

i can agree that jaws at times can get over dramatic but he still knows way more football than tony. he looks like he was testing 747's with no roof top.

I had a problem with both Jaws an Kornhole. Jaws, while I love him, needs to separate himself from kissing philly's ass. That said Kornhole was bringing up dead topics a hundred times throughout the game for the sake of bringing them up. I was waiting for the "philadelphia fans threw snowballs at santa" comments to start. It was the same old BS and it's annoying when I'm watching a game. It's almost as bad as showing Pats/Ginos during every Philly home game. That said at least the last few things I mentioned are one and dones, Kornheiser kept it up the entire game... I wanted to jump through my tv and hit him, and I'm not even an Eagles fan.

Jaws is an improvement over the other QB they had!!! Jaws does lean toward Philly, but I would expect that...he was their QB. But Joey boy just showed hate toward certain teams..namely one that played on Monday night. I wish networks would offer alternate audio channels with the broadcast from both teams and let you choose. Sirius does that and I love it. As a fan it is a better program with your homers. If I could count on the network guys to call it down the middle, none are on ESPN. There are some that a very good and I have no problem listening during the game. IMO ESPN as a whole shows favorites in every aspect. I believe the real problem is ESPN as a network.

You got it right. One of the main reasons I can't stand Korny and I started this thrread is that he brings up stuff not related to the game just to say something. He adds nothing at all to the analyzing of the game going on-KORNY SUCKS!!

Id rather Listen to Aikman than any of those clowns. Even in a Dallas game he does not express bias. Jaws covering an Eagle game is totally unacceptable. Sorry but Homers shouldnt be covering "home" games.

On a National broadcast.

I agree with you about Aikman, I have liked him in the booth since he broke in, I think he does a very good job :)
