    I'm surprised nobody has posted this yet. I listened to the game as I watched it live at the stadium. I don't know what game Gill and Gino were watching, but they constantly misidentified players. Gino's voice was very weak. It's time for them to be replaced. and lets not let the pre-season duo of Don Criqui and Randy Cross off either. They were brutal on the Kraft produced telecast.

    Yeah lets get rid of the 2 class individuals, who bring proffesionalism and history to a brodcast, so we can have Gary Tangway, Scott Zolak and Andy Gresh as the new broadcasters.. Yeah that is some smart move..:rolleyes:

    Oh come on. Gil and Geno are the best. It's hilarious when Gil gets the call wrong and Geno corrects him. The broadcasts wouldn't be the same without them. If anyone has to go, it's Randy Cross, who despite his attempts to look younger with Grecian Formula for Men, still calls Matt Light "Todd Light" for something like 4 years running.

    Gino has lived the game inside and out on all facets of the game on offense, on defense, and on special teams, and as a coach of the team. He has done it since the start of the Patriots and knows what the hell he is talking about when he talks about a play. You won't find anyone out there in the NFL who has his chops let alone his abilities on air.

    Santos knows how to describe the action, when to shut up and let Gino do the commentary, and what to add to conversations about plays that aren't forced to kill time.

    There is a reason why Gino and Gill have been working together for most of the last 39 years. The two are some of the greatest football announcers ever.

    They know what the hell they are saying, they know more about the game and are clearer in their descriptions and quick on the action. This is preseason, nobody is going to know who every single player on every single down for both teams are especially guys who won't be there in a couple of weeks. When they start making huge mistakes on air during regular season games then you can start this talk but this was during preseason!!!

    What Sean said .... :yeahthat: ....

    Any of those 3 azzclowns ever get on and I will watch the game on mute.

    Tanguay ... really dude ... lay off the sauce ... it shows.

    Gil and Gino are fine ... a bit old fashioned ... but so am I.

    It is apparently a glitch in the rating system that you have to give at least one star.

    Gil may have lost his fastball but hes still good. Gino may be a bit long in the tooth and may forget where he is now and then but I find his voice nostalgic and sorta soothing. They bring back memories when I had to listen to the games on the radio because of blackouts. Id keep Gino in the booth til they have to carry him out.

    Replace Gil & Gino with Criqui & Cross (& Zolak & Gresh), and I completely agree with you.

    Gil and Gino, on their death beds would be better than 90 % of all the anouncers on radio or TV, I only wish they did the tv anouncing as I can never get the tv and radio in sinc.
    I love those two!

    Cross doesn't even know the name of the starting 4-time All-Pro Left Tackle. (You know, that "Todd" guy).

    The OP is complaining about Gil + Gino not knowing all the street FA's names in TC.

    So, you'd be advocating replacing Sam Adams with Milwaukee's Best?

    Hey, maybe they could also change the name of the team to the Tigercats!!!!

    I think this will sort out across generational lines. I'm one of the old guys and would gladly listen to these two until they can't croak it out anymore.

    I'm glad to see the strong support for G&G. Those guys are an institution.

    Gil and Gino are still great, I just listened to them last week on Sirius radio as I was driving cross country. Who cares if one of them flubs a name every now and then, hell, I do that most every day myself.

    Most people, and I guarantee the majority of people on this site (taking into consideration the average age of those who jumped on the bandwagon after 2001) don't even know who Gino IS in relation to The New England Patriots organization.
    Originator of this thread better Google.
