Really, who's gonna replace him?

They're going with just two in the booth.

I would have preferred Tirico.

February 15, 2012  06:34 PM ET

Jaworski was due to get the boot. I never cared for his commentary.

February 15, 2012  06:36 PM ET

Nobody can ever compare to Howard Cosell and Dandy Don Meredith.

Yup - 3's a crowd.

They need to just scrap all three and start over.

Agreed. There aren't many quality announcers anymore. I think Daryl Johnston is one of the better ones.

What happens if Gruden gets an offer he can't refuse, to coach again.....

Tirico is okay but the others aren't worth keeping.

He'd be a great addition.

Guess you didn't catch it when ESPN fired him and replaced him with.... Ron Jaworski.

I'll go halfway with you on that Meredith was a great football announcer,Cosell was an ignorant loudmouth of a sport he didn't know much of and a bad hair piece,He would wnader into boxing and other sports while announcing MNF and Meredith basicaly told him too shut up.

Can't disagree with your assesment of Cosell, but he brought something to the booth....at least in the early years, that was kind of unique. Brash, arrogant, and always obnoxiuos, he called it as he saw it. He wasn't afraid to go against the flow. "Jockocracy" was a term he used in his book, to protest the entiltlement of ex-players, to become broadcasters. He could be caustic, and we all loved to hate him, but I always tuned in. I remember watching the game, when Howard broke the news of John Lennon's death. He did the moment....Justice!
