Too Much of a Halfway Decent Thing

Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic will do the play-by-play for the second game of ESPN's Monday Night Football opening doubleheader.

1. STOP with the Monday Night Football Doubleheaders. It started as a necessity in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina. The NFL was figuring out what to do with the Giants-Saints game that was supposed to be in New Orleans. They came up with "play it in New Jersey" only the Jets were occupying the stadium Sunday, so they came up with "play it on Monday." And ESPN thought it was a great idea. It's not. One game on Monday night is enough, thank you.

2. ENOUGH Mike and Mike. Having a halfway decent, tolerable, good-for-all-timezones radio show doesn't mean they should be everywhere! First Arena Football, then the Spelling Bee, now they're Madden and Michaels?? No. NO NO NO.
Oh, and adding Mike Ditka doesn't sweeten the deal. Especially after I have to listen to Tirico and Ron Jaworski in game one. I used to like Monday Night Football.
