Now that preseason's over and we're (mostly) free of him for another year, I figure it's safe to ask why this guy is part of the TV team for the Pats' preseason games. IIRC, he played for San Fran. Is he originally from New England or something? Unfortunately I will probably still have to listen to him call some regular season games this year, since I can't get Boston radio where I live. (Go figure!) I did try that NFL Field Pass deal last year, but the Internet feed lags several seconds behind the TV so it's kinda pointless. Anyway, Cross isn't the worst out there, but he's close. He's barely competent and often says things that have you thinking, "Huh?"
