ESPN's McFarland Will Be In The Booth For NFL Playoff Game

Booger McFarland will shed the sideline cart he used during “MNF” this season and be in the booth for ESPN’s broadcast of the Colts-Texans Wild Card game on Saturday, a move that will lead to speculation that McFarland will join Joe Tessitore and Jason Witten in the booth next season. ESPN moved McFarland to the booth for the final “MNF” regular-season game on Christmas Eve, citing weather conditions as a reason for making that move.

ESPN was said to be so pleased with how the three-man booth worked for that Broncos-Raiders game, it decided to stick with the three-man booth for its only NFL playoff telecast. For the record, ESPN says no decision has been made for the booth next season, but it appears likely that McFarland’s sideline cart will not be around.
