Your NFL Announcing Schedule Week Sixteen

Wednesday, December 19, 2007


Here are your Week #16 pairings. Bryant and Cris are back together, and our good friend Gus gets to go to Detroit. I hear it's lovely this time of year. I also told you last week that CBS was just going to follow New England around the rest of the year, and it appears that FOX is going to do the same with Brett Favre. Have fun covering the Lions and Packers Week 17 with Brett Favre only playing a quarter, Joe Buck.

Hope you and your team lucked out in the Announcer lottery(and yes the Vikings Cheerleader photo is a reverse jinx).....

Buck and Aikman: If we don't do an NFC East game, we'll darn well find a way to squeeze in the Packers.

Yay. Joe Buck gets chance to bash a Chicago team, which he'll no doubt do with great relish. He's as unprofessional as he is uninformed, but it's going to hurt even more knowing that every horrible thing he says about my Bears is true.

Am I the only one who misses the 'Don Criqui Game-of-the-Week'?
He always sounded so brutal and out of it.
I guess that's why Notre Dame hired him.

I noticed the return of the Steve 'USC Thugs' Beuerlein to the booth for the Ravens - Seahawks game.

Great, I might as well listen to Sirius on Thursday and Saturday nights to avoid hearing Bryant Gumball. Bring back Tom Hammond!! I can't believe I said that.

I also heard that last Sunday that the Lions-Packers game will have Albert, Moose and Goose. Will Tony wear an enourmous parka on the sidelines?

with home-field advantage still up for grabs, i somehow doubt favre will only be playing a quarter against detroit

Are you predicting that both teams win this week then Anon?

Dec 19, 2007, 11:24:00 PM  

AA, you so crazy. We all know when there is a Redskin-Cowboy game available, Joe & Troy will be there.

I dunno....this could be Favre's last regular season home game....again :)

Dec 19, 2007, 11:54:00 PM  

favre and the packers are playing for home field advantage throughout the playoffs ... he'll be playing the whole game

Sorry Anon, but that's wrong. If the Cowboys win next week and the Packers lose that's not the case. Won't matter.

2 days without a caption contest?
what gives? at least you could've given a pic showing jessica simpson's breasts not hiding behind tuna or a stupid cowboys jersey.

No matter what Dallas does Saturday night, Favre will play the whole game because they still will have a shot at home field if the Cowboys were to lose next week at Washington.

KC and Detroit could tie

pm, you're right. Just watch the game, turn down the sound on Fox 32 and put on 780 with Joniak (You are ridiculous) and Thayer

As a Seattle fan, we hardly get Buck and Aikman, IMHO that's great. Buck isn't that good of an announcer. Too bad he's coasting on reputation and his dad.

Not to beat the dead horse, but Buck and Aikman only do Packer and/or NFC East games. Even if you don't like them, their team gets the best producers, directors, etc.. So Seahawks games, for example, get fewer cameras and lower quality production values. That's the reason why some people get bent out of shape when they learn that B&A aren't doing their game.

Just to let you know AA: Marshall Faulk and 'Primetime' are doing the Steelers-Rams game instead of Cowboys-Panthers. Collinsworth "suddenly" became available for the Cowboys.

Does anyone else notice or just me, that the Joe Buck / Troy Aikman deal is a marriage to the Cowboys (NFC East) announcership? It seems they do EVERY Cowboy game, and every time, Troy is just a sour pack. C'mon, Troy, we understand that announcing needs to have somewhat an unbiased slant, but to go all the way and bash your alma mater nearly every other play? What gives? -- Can we lobby for a new announcer rotation?
