NFL on Fox Broadcast Pairings

The below list shamelessly lifted from awfulannouncing:

Joe Buck and Troy Aikman
Thom Brennaman and Brian Billick
Dick Stockton and Charles Davis
Ron Pitts and John Lynch
Chris Myers and Trent Green

First of all, I have to assume and hope this list accidentally omitted Kenny Albert/Moose/Goose.  Secondly, below that top crew (or two) there isn’t much to give fans hope here.  BTN and BCS games have shown Thom Brennaman to leave a lot to be desired when it comes to calling football.  Charles Davis is okay usually but occassionally not.  Brian Billick was fairly solid last year on a lower ranked crew but struggled at times to get his point across concisely.  And obviously John Lynch and Trent Green are unknown quantities.  Bottom line is I think CBS will continue to have the better broadcasting depth, at least if you ignore Steve Tasker and Gus Johnson.

    As usual your anti-Gus bias blinds you to the virtues of announcers who care about the game going on in front of them. Other than that, I’m with you on your judgment here.

      There is caring about a game. Greg Gumbel cares about a game. Al Michaels cares about a game. Gus Johnson wets himself every time someone converts a 1st down near midfield in the middle of the 1st quarter. And that annoys my sense of proportion greatly.

    We need more Al Michaels’ and John Maddens’ out there in NFL TV land. -DID YOU HEAR ME COLLINGSWORTH ?! -I hope so.

    Oh, and can the NFL please step in and get rid of “MOOSE” and that fat slob “GOOSE” as NFL commentating/announcing for NFL games on National TV.
    Those 2 clowns are the worst !!!
    FOX’s (NFL) has gone downhill.
    No wonder Terry Bradshaw wants to retire from Fox. -now I understand why.
