Mike & Mike on Monday Night for 49ers-Cardinals

New, comments

ESPN has announced that Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg from Mik & Mike in the Morning will be the lead broadcasters for the 49ers-Cardinals MNF opener.  They will combine with Miek Ditka and Bonnie Bernstein.  

Needless to say, I'm not quite sure what I think of this.  I usually catch the televised broadcast of M&M on ESPN2 in the morning and definitely am entertained by them.  I'm just not sure how that will carry over into broadcasting a football game.  I'd assume Greenberg would be the main announcer with Golic and Ditka providing color commentary.

The "Varsity" team for Week 1 will be Mike Tirico,  Tony Kornheiser and Ron Jaworski.  I can definitely say that I like having Jaworski in there over Theismann.  I've never been a Theismann fan and think this will tighten up that broadcast and make it more enjoyable each week.

The JV team is looking like a mixed bag.  While I certainly enjoy me some Ditka, I've never been a big fan of him on the pre-game shows.  I'm certainly a Bonnie Bernstein fan so that helps.  In checking around the Internets, Kissing Suzy Kolber is most definitely against it.  I'll just say that I'm willing to give it a shot, unless they think the idea of 3 Mikes in the booth is funny.  I've got low expectations, so hopefully they'll be exceeded.
