Where's GuJo? (Update: Gus Johnson Found!)

Wednesday, October 17, 2007


As readers were quick to point out in the last post....Gus Johnson and Steve Tasker are noticeably (obviously not to me) missing from this week's slate of NFL games on CBS. I hope nothing is wrong with our friend Gus, but let it be known I've tried to contact the "Eye" to figure it out.

If anyone has any reasoning or insight please be sure to share it in the comments. The guy can stop the Isiah- Simmons feud, but he can't get Tennessee at Houston?

Update: And Steve's and Anon are the big winners (sort of)! Via the CBS PR Department.....

"The reason is that CBS will only be covering five games this week. On five game weeks, one of the six main announce teams gets the week off...This week, it is Johnson and Tasker."
Thanks to them for the quickest response ever and thank to YOU for noticing the missing announcers! Very interesting that each team gets a week off during the season on a rotating sort of schedule. I'm sure they need it, but Gus....seriously.....we need you each week. Enjoy your week off but I fully expect to see you in Tennessee when the Raiders come to town.

I'm glad someone else prays to the alter of Gus.

Best game of his career was the Bengals-Browns Top 5 highest scoring game of all time a couple of years back.

He was on fire that day.

CBS has 7 crews, Gus is on the 6th, they're are five crews this week for the eye. Blame FOX.

Here's hoping Gus makes a couple trips to the Motor City this year (Lions vs Broncs and Chiefs)

It has to be odd for them to have a week off with all the prep work you do for a game.

I guess we'll have to hope Musburger is off his meds to hear someone eat the microphone over a three-yard gain...I'm all for enthusiasm, but Gus takes it WAY too far...

Kevin Harlan is a pretty excitable person - sort of like Gus Lite.

Harlan is a throwback, IMO. he's one of the better ones.
