Phil Mushnick thinks Mike Tirico is a talented play by play guy who's wasted on ESPN:
- "Mike Tirico, by now, would be widely regarded as among TV's best play-by-players if he worked for a network other than ESPN. Tirico's attention to games is weekly fractionalized by Monday Night Football productions that turn him into an infomercial and variety show host. But you can tell he'd be very good - if he were allowed to be."
