Fouts was obviously referring to Dick Enberg, who was doing the game with him. Most of the quotes on here have to heard in their context, or else you can take anything and make it sound ridiculous

Did you happen to catch the first segment of FNIA last night? I swear Bob Costas was on those Johnnie Walkers that Al was referencing. In the same segment he nearly fell out of his chair, developed an incontrollable case of the giggles, and in his laughter, called Jerome Bettis, "Jerome Buttis".

Really, though, the Patriots game was FULL of "awful announcing." There may be worse than Randy Cross out there in terms of NFL color guys, I haven't found one though.

He used the words "You definitely want to maybe..." on at least 2 occasions in the second half. That's just the tip of the iceberg. I wish I could remember most of them right now, unfortunately I endured 12 innings of Chip Carey last night which may have melted my brain.

Yes, Anon #1....we know that. That's part of the fun. We're talking Sports....not everything has to be so serious.

What? No mention of Chris Myers' stupid comments during the Broncos-Buccaneers game? In the 2nd Quarter, the Broncos face 3rd and 3, but Brandon Marshall amasses five yards on the reception. Perhaps my HD signal makes this more apparent, but Myers says he "appears" to have it? He is a dumb guy.

Yeah, yeah, he said dick - but it's also HOW he said it. Like, with no comma in front of dick. Which really does make it sound like AA typed it. Which really is a disturbing thought.
