Today’s matchup is quite intriguing. Colin Cowherd has emerged as one of the favorites in the Joe Morgan Memorial for obvious reasons. However, Joe Theismann has a long history of awful announcing in his own right. Can he upset the Thundering Herd? It’s up to you to decide.
Colin Cowherd vs Joe Theismann
Fact File: Host of ESPN Radio’s The Herd and co-host of SportsNation on ESPN2
Why He’s Here: When polled last month, nearly 85% of respondents said that ESPN should end its relationship with Colin Cowherd. His stereotyping and pontificating are legendary for all the wrong reasons. Very few in the sports media get away with offensive and flat out wrong statements like Cowherd has the ability to do. Cowherd likes to pander to intellectual elites and openly mock large portions of his audience. Thankfully, CBS passed on a sitcom pilot based on the life of Cowherd.

Round 1 Result: Defeated Bobby Valentine 88.47% – 11.53%
Fact File: NFL Network analyst
Why He’s Here: Joe has long been one of the blogosphere’s least favorite analysts, but his legendary infamous run with Matt Millen was his “finest” hour. Although Theismann was axed from the game broadcasts after only a year, he’s still listed as an on-air personality, so he makes the field. After all, NFL.com is still touting his “wealth of knowledge and expertise.”
