No Gus Johnson doing the Bengals game? (No Gus Johnson at all). No wacky Bengals comebacks this week.

I am going to say several things here.

1. If Thom Brennaman is filling in for Joe Buck this week, then those Dick Stockton to ESPN rumors must be true.

2. They obviously don't want to separate Kenny, Moose, and Goose because they might eventually overtake Joe, Troy, and Pam.

3. No Gus Johnson and no Bill Macatee is always a good thing.

4. They might have Chris Myers and Chris Rose confused because I really don't think that Myers can report from the dugout on Saturday in New York and then fly all the way across the country to Seattle in one night. Look into that.

5. Don Criqui needs to show improvement to keep doing games.

I'll just assume that Nantz and Simms will do Patriots games every week now. The Patriots vs. a dumpster fire 0-5 team. Ridiculous. Especially when you have a marquee game in the early spot.

Seriously, why is this even a late game anyway? The Vikings should get the late game instead. I hate when the networks give the whole country the East Coast Bias game in both the early and late slots.

@ SSR: Just think, with the World Series still going on on November 1, Brennaman will most likely be announcing Favre Bowl II!

@ Nathan: There is a reason why Kenny Albert does not work with Troy Aikman during the LCS and World Series and it is not because they don't want to separate Kenny, Moose, and Goose. They had Kenny Albert work with Troy Aikman before and the chemistry between the two was not good at all. Therefore, seeing as the 2nd announcer, Albert, can't fill in for Buck, Fox goes to their 3rd announcer, Thom Brennaman (not Dick Stockton). The way Fox does it is that their so-called 3rd, 4th, and 5th teams (Brennaman/Billick, Stockton/Davis, Rosen/Ryan), are all essentially equal, and seeing as Fox is phasing out Dick Stockton (or he is phasing himself out), Brennaman becomes the #1 guy while Buck is away.

And while I'm not sure about Chris Myers this year, last year he sideline reported a Falcons-Eagles game during the day and sideline reported a Rays-Phillies game during the night so it is certainly not out of the question that he does a Yankee game in New York on Saturday, flies out to Seattle afterward to do that game on Sunday, and then go down to Anaheim for Game 3 of the ALCS on Monday. It's Chris Myers, we're talking about, Fox works him like he's Superman (even though Myers is horrible). They always have and will probably continue to do so this week.

The decisions that FOX makes with its "talent" continue to puzzle me. Chris Myers should be banned from television. Thom Brennaman should only broadcast Reds games. He should never do any national baseball games. He should never do another football game as long as he lives. Why he continues to do NFL games is puzzling. FOX will hopefully hire people like Dave Pasch and Bob Wischusen to replace the idiot announcers that are on there. I would not mind Chris Rose getting a full slate of NFL games. Ron Pitts should never do another NFL game on TV. Sam Rosen is not that bad, but Tim Ryan is a disaster. I hope that Trent Green and John Lynch move up quickly so that they can get rid of Tim and Charles Davis. I would also like them to hire Bob Papa from the NFL Network. Josh Lewin would also be another guy to potentially hire to work Cowboys games since Joe Buck cannot objectively call the games with the Cowboys. Kenny, Moose, and Goose could be the number one team in a couple of years because they are so good. As far as CBS teams go, the first two teams are good. Jim and Phil are great. Greg and Dan are pretty good, but they are a good number two team. Dick Enberg is still great but they cannot seem to give him a good analyst. Dan Fouts is a disaster. The other teams on CBS are catastrophic.

Congratulations! You're a fan of one of the worst PbP guys in all of football!

/Bob Wischusen??? Seriously??? He's just as awful as Rose.
//I could go on, but I'll let the idiocy of what your 2 comments demomstrate for themselves how little you know and understand this business.

@Nathan Brice, No Gus Johnson is a good thing? I know he can go over the edge sometimes for a call, but that is what makes the guy great. He's the only one who shows a ton of emotion and it's refreshing to hear.

I find it funny Jacksonville is not getting to see their own game according to the FOX map.

Man, usually they move Kenny Albert up to the A team when Buck is away. They should have sent Brennaman to do baseball, he's better there than in football...

No disrespect to Gumbel and Dierdorf, but the fact that Nantz and Simms aren't doing Bal/Min is beyond me.

Nantz/Simms are back to drooling over Brady. Besides, the broadcast/production crews were set well before the season.

Don't worry, when the Patriots get a big lead CBS will switch the national audience to the J-E-T-S.

And while we're at this, it could be Chris Rose as ALCS/WS sideline reporter this year. Remember, he did the All-Star Game this year.

Which brings up the question---why?????????????? If they change it to the more deserving game, will Nantz and Simms not have enough time to do their homework on Brett Favre? Give me a break. That is the lamest-ass excuse I've ever heard. "OOOOOOOOOOhhhhhhhhhhh, they can't do it because we already said they weren't doing it."

Well, I do mean disrespect toward Dierdorf. He's horrific. I can't believe I have to listen to him during the Vikings game on Sunday.
