FRSCitizenJournal: ABC Sports: NFL 1984: MNF: Chargers @ Raiders: The Great Frank Gifford With The Call
A great AFC West Rivalry the Chargers and Raiders, that sorta lost some steam in the mid and late 1980s. When both clubs slipped into mediocrity. This was also not a great time for ABC Monday Night Football, Frank Gifford was still a great announcer but Howard Cosell was no longer on MNF. And they were trying new people every season like OJ Simpson and Joe Namath and struggled to find that right mix. Until 1986-87 when they brought in Al Michaels and Dan Dierdorf to go along with Frank Gifford.
