ESPN is going with a fresh approach for its first 2018 regul
Status: OFFLINE


of ”Monday Night Football.”Two announcers with plenty of NFL credentials but far more entrenched in the college game these days will be handling the Jets-Lions game from Detroit: Beth Mowins and Brian Griese.”We are pretty excited to bring the franchise on the air https://www.broncosfanstore.com/Ronald-Leary-Jersey , and hoping some pretty good story lines will play out,” says Mowins, who did last year’s second half of the opening doubleheader with analyst Rex Ryan. Mowins also does a few CBS telecasts of NFL games during the season, as well as Oakland Raiders preseason contests, but her main gig is college sports.Griese is one of the top analysts of the college game, an insightful and often critical but fair voice.”Guys who can shoot from the hip are always fun to work with,” Mowins says.Of course, he also played 11 pro seasons, starting 83 games. So his knowledge of both levels of football is expansive.”I think the pro game in a lot of ways is more familiar to me than the college game,” Griese notes. ”I have had to learn the college game as it has grown. I spent 11 years in the NFL playing quarterback and it’s more similar to what I know.”What both Mowins and Griese know is that the fan bases of both teams will be stoked for the game, even though Jets-Lions isn’t quite the marquee matchup. Indeed, the NFL gave ESPN what appears to be a better game in the nightcap, Jon Gruden’s return as the Raiders host the Rams. The regular and new Monday night crew of Joe Tessitore and Jason Witten will be in the booth, Booger McFarland at field level for that one.”No question both these teams have reasons for optimism, for different reasons,” Griese says. ”Jets fans should be excited about Sam Darnold, who can be a game changer and a franchise quarterback in the making. For Detroit, it’s a whole new ballgame for the fans with Matt Patricia hired as coach, a new way of doing things. I’m eager to see how he will impact the franchise. And they have their bellwether in Matthew Stafford at quarterback.”Adds Mowins: ”You tell the truth with a heavier emphasis on the hope, and that is what all of these fan bases are having. The history is part of the story heading into the season and something we absolutely talk about graphically. The nice thing about the opener is everyone has hope again Royce Freeman Color Rush Jersey , and we can also focus on the changes these teams have made to improve.”To its credit, ESPN is willing to make changes or go outside the box for its Monday night showcase. One area of expertise that Mowins and Griese – and sideline reporter Laura Rutledge – bring to the telecast is an advanced awareness of NFL newcomers.That could be particularly enlightening for Jets-Lions with the likes of Darnold – even if he doesn’t play and Josh McCown starts – and Lions rookie running back Kerryon Johnson on hand.”One of the things I have noticed over the last several years and doing the Raiders games in preseason, you have a head start on rookies coming into the league,” Mowins says. ”I sort of have that background of who they were and relationships they might have with other players and coaches. That provides a nice jumping-off point, especially early in the season. Some of the rookies the NFL fans may not have seen in college, but I have had a chance to call their games in college, and so has Brian.”Mowins and Griese have not done game broadcasts together, but have had many conversations and learning sessions. Last year, when the Broncos played in the opener Mowins and Ryan announced, she reached out to Griese, who does Denver’s preseason games.”I’ve talked with Beth quite a bit through the years, we are in the same college football realm, so we see quite a bit of each other’s work,” Griese says. ”I’m very familiar with her work in college football.”The approach for me will be a little bit different because I will probably go to both teams’ training camps to familiarize myself with the teams. I don’t ever do a game where I have not seen a team live or in person (at practice or in a game). That will be the only difference for you in preparation.”— ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) The daughter of Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen announced her desire to take over the leadership role of the team and was informed she hasn’t met the criteria.The Pat Bowlen Trust issued a statement Thursday saying Beth Bowlen Wallace ”is not capable or qualified at this time.”The team was placed in a trust when Pat Bowlen stepped down in 2014 because of Alzheimer’s. The trust is overseen by three people, including team president and CEO Joe Ellis, who has final say on day-to-day operations until one of Bowlen’s seven children can succeed him as controlling owner.Bowlen Wallace said in a statement that it is her desire to ”lead this team with the same passion my father did and help the Broncos become Super Bowl champions again.”The Broncos have made 18 of their 22 playoff appearances during the Pat Bowlen era. Since he was introduced as the majority owner on March 23, 1984, the team has the second-most regular-season wins (behind New England) and captured three Super Bowl titles.”I have advised the Trustees that I am ready and have done everything they said I need to do to take this step,” the 47-year-old Bowlen Wallace said. ”Working in management at the Broncos is something I have prepared for and dreamed of doing.”The stipulations to be controlling owner of the Broncos included completion of a business or law degree and five years in management in the NFL or another major business organization.Bowlen Wallace graduated from the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law in 2016. She also worked with the Broncos as the director of special projects before her employment was ended in 2015.She’s assisted with Colorado-based nonprofits and charitable organizations Brandon Marshall Jersey , including the Alzheimer’s Association. She’s also worked as an executive in the oil and gas industry since 2016.”My father’s number one goal was to win,” Bowlen Wallace said. ”He understood that took financial commitment, hard work, dedication, the right leadership, and drive. He was motivated to win not only for himself and the team but for the pride of Broncos Country, our beloved and loyal fans.”Bowlen Wallace has the support of Amie Bowlen Klemmer, the oldest Bowlen child; Bill Bowlen, Pat Bowlen’s brother; and minority owners of the team, Kerry and John Bowlen (John is Pat Bowlen’s brother).”Pat Bowlen’s wish and his legacy was to have one of his children run this team,” Kerry and John Bowlen said in a joint statement. ”That is what he always wanted. Beth is the best positioned of all the children to take over now. Her plan is just right – to take over as managing owner now and in the future allow the other children to mature, learn and grow into the position, keeping this team in her family and in Denver, where the Broncos belong.”The Trust said Pat Bowlen made it clear that his children ”were not automatically entitled to a role with the team and that they would have to earn that opportunity through their accomplishments, qualifications and character.”In the statement, the Trust said it had communicated this with her.”Although Beth has declined our invitations to discuss her qualifications for the last two years, we will continue to proactively engage and meet with any of the Bowlen children who express a desire to earn the right to succeed their father,” the statement said. ”We will vigorously defend Pat’s plan in responding to these and any statements that are contrary to Pat’s words and intentions.”Added Ellis: ”As a trustee and someone Pat designated to oversee his team, I have an enormous responsibility to carefully administer his succession plan and make decisions in the best interests of the Broncos. We will continue to follow Pat’s blueprint – and nobody else’s – while keeping our focus as an organization on having a successful season.”—
