Is it possible "Madden" will be gone?

With the ESPN license coming along next year, and all that is happening with how the NFL will be telivised, I'm curious about which way EA will go with this title. I honestly don't see them changing the name, but Madden is going to NBC and MNF is going to ESPN. It'll be interesting to see how ESPN is used in this game. If they do what is expected (keep the Madden name) we'll see something like, Madden 07 powered by ESPN. Or will Madden be alltogether gone and we see ESPN Monday Night Football? Either way, I do hope ESPN gets some exposure in this game.

Actually, Madden will be on ESPN next year if I am not mistaken. Him and Thiesman will be doing the games next year for MNF. But they still could change the name especially if they do not have him doing the play calling next year in the game.

He signed , I belive a 5 year extension. How he will be used is another story. They wanted to keep the brand name.

Is it just me or does Madden always sound drunk...is it just me or does Terry Bradshaw sound like some raving idiot. How do these imbosiles become super rich?

Here is a quote from Madden that illustrates the "complexity" of his thought processes.."With Michael Vick...he can run to the outside..so you can go..boom.****n Dunn in the Middle..or you can run Dunn to the outside. You can run Dunn to the Middle and to the Outside."

Oh my mistake, now to think about it. You are right, but I think it is Michaels who will be calling the game with Thiesmann.

So it will be Michaels and Thiesmann calling the games for MNF and Madden will be doing Sunday Nights on NBC.

Ha! I think your quote is a bit off, but Madden does get crossed up now and then. But I think it adds a "regular guy" aspect to the commentary. I like him.

What I got from the Vick/Dunn outside/inside phrase was that Vick opens up the inside for Dunn with his ability to break contain, and Dunn opens up the outside for Vick with his ability to run up the middle effectively. I remember Madden's statment being a lot clearer than your quote.
