    Is this really going to be the team this year? Because I think Gus Johnson sucks!

    Where is Nantz, I hope this is a temporary preseason deal. Anyone know the details?

    Edit: What dumbass voted on a OT thread asking a question? Please come out of the wood work. Hell at least leave your opinion. An anonymous vote on an OT thread, really?

    I'm pretty sure Jim Nantz is doing the Barclays golf tournament right now, so he is busy.

    Nantz is CBS' lead golf guy too. He's likely covering the PGA event. Check tomorrow at about 2:00.

    I don't know, he gets to excited over seemingly every play. There are worse no doubt, but I really like Nantz and Simms. I think Nantz and Simms are the best around these days, not exactly Summerall and Madden but very good none the less.

    Summerall and Madden were entertaining but not nearly as informative as Nantz and Simms.

    I think it is more the nostalgia of my youth that keeps them near and dear to my heart. :D

    CBS, which has the rights to AFC games, has eight pairs of broadcast teams. The Pats are a good team, extremely familiar to even casual fans, and always get good ratings nationwide. The Pats will almost always get one of the top broadcast teams as their games will usually be one of the networks higher rated games, often broadcast in other markets.

    Here are the CBS broadcast teams for this year:

    Jim Nantz and Phil Simms
    Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf
    Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts
    Kevin Harlan and Solomon Wilcots
    Gus Johnson and Steve Tasker
    Bill Macatee and Rich Gannon
    Don Criqui and Steve Beuerlein
    Spero Dedes and Randy Cross

    The top FOX pairings are Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, and then Kenny Albert with Daryl Johnston. There's only one Pats games on FOX this year, and that is the game against the Vikings. I'm sure FOX will have Buck and Aikman calling that game.
