Wait, Nantz/Simms to Pats/Jets...cant wait for the Pats to grind the game down and win 14-0 just because everyone thinks they will run it up.

I guess you can just pencil in Buck and Aikman every time the Cowboys play this year. And, yes, Detroit at San Diego will have more playoff impact than the Cowboys or Packers game. The Saints/Cardinals game is basically a playoff-elimination game. But the top two announcing teams must cover the Cowboys and Favre.

As for Nantz and Simms covering New England, you can't be surprised with that one either.

And an update, CBS moved the Pats/Fins game to 4:15 PM, so that means Nantz and Simms in all likelihood.....again! Good thing Seattle plays a CBS home game.

Given that Gus Johnson has been on a bunch of radio stations plugging his website and "fantasy pxp service," that will be my guess.

That should read...

NY Jets @ New England - Brady Ass-sucker1, Brady Ass-sucker2

I hope it's Dierdorf, I think Michigan grads know how to use a computer...

Can't be Dick Stockton, I think he's been dead since Larry Bird was playing in the NBA.

@gmoney:

The Lions deserve to be part of the Pat Summerall or Don Criqui Game-of-the-Week, every week until Matt Millen is fired, the Fords sell the team, or Hell freezes over, whichever comes first.

I think Cris Collinsworth wins this week by not having to work with Bryant Gumbel.

Tom Hammond is calling Thursday night's game?!? Will he use a mic stand like he uses for horse racing coverage?

I'm not surprised Nantz and Simms have the Patriots game. It's like college hoops - if Duke is involved, Nantz will call the game. Same thing with golf - If Tiger Woods is playing, and playing well, there won't be any mention of the competition throughout the broadcast. Just Tiger.

Being a Packers fan, and not a bandwagon jumper, I get the Albert, Moose and Goose show this Sunday.

I feel this should be told to people, because I doubt many people even noticed it.

In the Week 13 game for the Browns against the Cards, Dan Dierdorf could barely contain himself about Kellen Winslow Jr., eventually deciding to let the world know that he has such "soft, supple hands."

In Week 14 for the Browns against the Jets, Randy Cross says the EXACT same thing about K2.

Now either there is some gross stuff happening in these pre-production meetings, or Randy Cross lost a bet or something, because they day you start ripping off Dan Dierdorf's lines, is the day you need to hang up the headset.

And in gloating news, I GET GUS JOHNSON ON SUNDAY!!!!!!! I couldn't be more thrilled with this turn of events. I can only hope this comes down to a time-out to ice a kicker in Ice Bowl conditions in which Gus Johnson gets so excited, he actually shatters the frozen press box window with his screaming.

And if you don't think this can actually happen, than you don't know Gus Johnson.

Very happy Gus Johnston is doing the Browns/Bills game. Such a big game with playoff implications needs the best announcer. Awesome!

No Gus for me this week, but I do get to listen to him next week; he calls the Kansas City-Detroit game.
