    Thank goodness Hank knows how to skin a buck and run a trotline.

    The Perfect Replacement for Hank on MNF?

    Okay, so I think I have the perfect replacement idea and it would appeal to way more people.

    Andy Samberg. That is all.

    Maybe throw in one of the other Lonely Island guys or Justin Timberlake in there and you've just widened your audience after losing Hank.

    I like how he is now turning it into a free speech issue and talking about his rowdy friends....trying to garner support.
    Yep! That's why he came out afterwards and apologized and tried to back track. When that didn't work and he still got the boot.....he bowes up.

    I have free speech as well. I have the freedom to say that the company I work for sux and the owner is a moron. That's free speech.
    And they have the right to can my arse to!!!!!!

    Maybe he can get a gig with Sean Hannity, or do his theme song. It was laughable to hear his try at defending Jr.

    Go retro. Mix in some hot graphics with clips from MNF games past and sound bytes from Howard and Dandy Don, Madden, etc.

    I don't get the need to have Hank, Faith or anyone doing an intro song.

    Never liked Hank, but the whole Faith Hill intro is beyond silly. Doesn't fit football at all.

    I'm telling you guys... Andy Samberg would be the best... switch up the song each week, having it describe opponents and such. Would be amazing.

    MNF died when it switched to cable anyway. They should have made the wholesale changes then.

    I think they need Mean Gene Okerlund to announce it.
