    Re: John Madden Retires

    I tired of him...but he was the best at one time...just not recently! He was definitely good for the NFL!

    Re: John Madden Retires

    Does anyone else think it has anything to do with Brett Favre retiring?

    I enjoyed him when he was on the air. Going to be hard to replace. Maybe they can get Frank Caliendo.

    Re: John Madden Retires

    Really like his sense of humor 10 years ago. That had faded the last few years.

    Still had a pretty good football mind and appreciated how he could break down plays.

    He'll be a tough act to follow.

    Exactly. He helped my enthusiasm and understanding of the game. He was very good for a very long time.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I liked John, even with all his gaffes and complete nonsense at times.

    Re: John Madden Retires

    I have nothing but respect for John Madden as a football mind and what he did to promote the NFL over the years. I blame him for the hours that I have commited to the Madden video game. That being said I think the time was right for him to step back, his skills in the booth have been eroding over the past few seasons.

    I will be interested to see who they get to replace him on Sunday nights.

    Turkey leg feast over? He must have tired of riding his carbon footprint bus now that everyone has to go green.

    I agree as well. He should have gone with Pat Summeral, that was the twighlight of a great team.

    Re: John Madden Retires

    I wish a guy like Madden would last forever. His voice is NFL football. I'll always remember his "Turduckin" cooking in his bus on Thanksgiving games.

    Re: John Madden Retires

    Finally this just made my day. Sunday night football will be enjoyable again.

    Now we have to figure out a way to get rid of Korny Kornheiser.

    Re: John Madden Retires

    I liked him 15 years ago but lately he has become almost a caricature of himself.
