I agree that Tirico is a better play by play man, but chemistry in the booth is key. You can put the best play by play and best color man in a booth and still have a crappy broadcast. I don't know if Ditka/Golic and Tirico would work as well as a Mike and Mike.
The orange faced one had one of the best lines of week one. When talking about the Raiders roster and the ineptitude of the coaching staff, Coach said, "You can't make chicken salad out of chicken...." It seemed like Ditka was genuinely angry at how Oakland was performing.
As far as Kornheiser goes, he was a great columnist and decent radio host, but MNF is not one of his shining achievements.
