    Don Meredith was the comic relief

    People tried to do Cosell like Dennis Miller and failed

  • Just shut up already, Howard! He's been dead for 10 years, but I can still hear him in my sleep. This man may have been the biggest mouth in the history of television.moreless

    There's no doubt that Howard Cosell brought something special to Monday Night Football, but he seemed to take delight in abusing Frank Gifford and Don Meredith and was a beligerent, spoiled child who always had to have his own way.

    When Howard got drunk and then went on the air slurring his words during a Giants-Eagles game during the first season of MNF in 1970, everyone could see that this man had his problems, yet ABC kept playing him up as the star of MNF. But he should have been thankful that Dandy Don and Faultless Frank kept bailing him out because they actually knew something about football. All Howard knew was how to run his mouth and be mean to everyone.moreless
