    FOX analysts

    Does anyone else really dislike the FOX NFL analysts. For some reason Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, and Jimmy Johnson all really bother me and I have a hard time listening to them. I also wanted to punch Howie in the face for the hat he had on.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I enjoyed watching how cold they all were. They could hardly talk between the cold and being all bundled up.

    At least you can understand them. You need the Rosetta Stone to decipher what shannon sharpe is trying to say.

    I don't think the fox crew is doing too bad a job.

    Re: FOX analysts

    I love pregame for inside stories and little bits of extra info about the game.

    What I hate is when they spend forever on pregame shows doing picks. I dont give a crap about who thinks who is going to win. I love it when the 'experts' on ESPN have about a 500 record picking the games WITHOUT spread.


    Aikman is a good announcer. Buck is ok with football (can't stand to listen to him during baseball games)

    Re: FOX analysts

    I actually disagree. I love the fox guys a lot better than the CBS guys. Adding Caliendo makes it even better.

    So true. Terry, Howie, and Jimmy are MUCH better than ESPN or CBS.

    I agree completely. I think Frank Caliendo is in second place out of those guys right now beating out everyone but Howie.... wow you guys ARE "experts." What a waste of time. I also hate when any analyst says "when I played......" Emmett says this all the time.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: FOX analysts

    I'll take Fox over CBS anyday. Yes, Shannon Sharpe can't be understood unless you have very clear ears. Is that getting worse by the way? And it seems like the CBS guys just try to crack themselves and each other up all the time. Ok, we get it, you're having fun, but damn. Calm down. Everything isn't that funny.

    Hammerin' Hank on ESPN is a joke. Why would I listen to this fool? He never has a very good winning record! I enjoy the analysis on ESPN better than Fox, but the over tone of the show on Fox is more fun.

    In the battle of the former quarterback analysts, I'll take Aikman over Phil Sims. I can't stand listening to Phil call games. However, Aikman has such poor grammar that it makes my wife's skin crawl.

    Anything beats the ESPN Monday night crew.


    I believed in Gene Chizik and all I got was this lousy limited-edition commemorative coin.

    Re: FOX analysts

    CBS is a complete joke and are simply trying to copy what Fox has been doing for years. I could probably do without Jimmy Johnson, but he doesn't really bother me all that much.
