I'll start...

Beth Mowins hurts my ears. 

Tony Romo is worth his weight in gold. He's truly the gold standard as I learn something new from him every time he is doing a game. Explaining what I am about to see, as well as what I have seen, is what sets him apart. That, and he's easy on the eyes. 😘

Agree 90%. You lose 10% because I don't think Romo is easy on the eyes.

 

But Romo is outstanding, and he even makes Nance tolerable.

 

Gotta say I REALLY like Ross Tucker. He does color for the Eagles broadcast during preseason and the dude belongs in a bigger audience. He's just terrific.

Greg Gumble's taken quite the demotion over the years

 

  He at his best was never top shelf.  The rest I could do with out.  I know we can't go back but I long for the days when the AFC was on NBC.  Even the lesser regional teams were better than what we have today.  Tom Hammond and Beasley Reese.

Uh oh, did "The Rock" get his walking papers?

He's a better studio guy.  I always thought his play-by-play was lazy;  he's always two seconds behind.

 

Nantz/Romo are easily the best team these days. 

Al Michaels is still great, but Collinsworth is awful.

Always liked Ian Eagle from way back at his WFAN days.
Never been a big Kevin Harlan fan
I don't mind Buck/Aikman unless they are soap-boxing (which is the same for anyone)

 

Also, Sean McDonough is terrific.  I have no idea why he doesn't have a prime NFL job.

He did.......he was MNF with Gruden on ESPN. 

And then ESPN decided it wasn't good enough. And then we got Booger.

Yup...but I see he's going to be the lead pbp guy for the NHL on ESPN.   Too bad he'll never get to do a Sabres game.

I didn't know he would be doing PBP hockey, that's great!

 

And I read a Facebook post by the Sabres today about half-priced tickets. The comments are HILARIOUS. And sad also.

Whatever happened to Howard Cosell, Dandy Don Meredith, and Frank Gifford - not to mention Jimmy-the-Greek Snyder, and a host of others.

 

My, how times have changed.
