Theismann Fired From MNF

Sunday, March 25, 2007



It's official.....Joe Theismann will be replaced on Monday Night Football. The rumor started at ProFootballTalk.com, and has since been confirmed.

Early word on Theismann's replacement is that it will be AFL Analyst Ron Jaworski. Not a bad choice in the least and there will certainly be more news to come Monday.

Special thanks to WBRS Sports and If I Ran... for putting the bug in my ear.

That's awesome. Jaws should be a little better exchanging with Kornheiser.

How does the better of the two analyst get fired?

Is ESPN solid on keeping Korny and just moving people around him--instead of replacing the problem?

I like Jaws, but his booth persona is pretty stale.

ESPN has to at least offer the job to Chris Collinsworth, right?
