This is correct. Herbie never makes his pick on Gameday for the game that he is announcing. Other shows do this too. Cris Collinsworth will abstain from picking Thursday night games on Inside the NFL because he'll be in the announcing booth for NFL Network. Boomer Esiason abstains from picking the Monday Night Football game on CBS because he does the radio broadcast for Westwood One.
