    Mike and Mike on the play call

    I love the double header MNF. For no other reason that you get Mike and Mike doing the play by play for the second game. With their experience on the radio show they are great calling the football game. I would take them over the other three that they have any day.

    Re: Mike and Mike on the play call

    I would definitely take Greeny, or even Golic, for play by play over Tirico any day.

    You just can't pass up the knowledge of Gruden and Jaws though.

    Dont like how Grenny called that INT though. He sounded more like a guy cheering for a team( i know he's a Jets fan) than an announcer. Golic sounds good.

    Charisma goes a long way. I don't need the game of football taught to me on the broadcast. Golic knows enough to explain what happened and he can talk smoothly about what he is trying to get across. So much of Jaws and Gruden is lost by their poor booth skills.

    I'm surprised Mike and Mike got the call for the game tonight - but I'm excited for them to start loosening up and start ripping on each other and Steve Young. This could be the only game all year that Oakland will be tolerable to watch.

    Are you serious? What in the world does experience doing a radio show do for them calling a football game?

    Chemistry.

    They know each other, they talk with each other all the time. It helps with the flow and the style of the call.

    I think they are terrible, and their radio show is terrible.

    Speaking of terrible, the house that Al Davis renovated is a massive ****-hole.

    I'm not a big fan. They seem to be rambling occassionally when pauses would be just fine.
