Even at age 75, Sunday Night Football's Michaels is considered the best NFL play-by-play announcer. Former ESPN Monday Night Football broadcaster Mike Tirico joined NBC in 2016 as Michaels' successor-in-waiting. The New York Post's Andrew Marchand reports that Michaels and Manning would form a "dream booth" that would give ESPN leverage in its upcoming NFL rights negotiations. He adds that ESPN is also considering former Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers. Monday Night Football's current team of Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland is considered lackluster.
