I kinda like what he brings to the table. He should make an easy transition to the Peacock Network.

I guess no more A-Team with Collinsworth, Aikman, and Buck. I liked them... Well.. Maybe not Buck.

I like Cris (even if he does spell his name funny, lol). I liked him as a player too - I remember when he was drafted, the Bungles picked him in the second round - they picked another WR in the first round who turned out to be a dud compared to Cris - there's a good trivia question - anyone remember who the WR was they picked in the 1st round (I don't).

Collinswortrh/Costa is a nice 1-2 punch for NBC. They've got nice chemistry on HBO. Good move. Rather bushleague on FOX's part though to break of Collinsworth.

Personally I wish Cris would just go away for good, I can't stand him. He thinks he's Mr. Football and is master of the obvious.

I also hate when he hypes up a player when the player makes a good play, however totally bashes them when they make a bad play. Their an awesome player one quarter, next quarter they suck. And i hate his "I told ya so" attitude.

CC is not nearly as annoying as Paul Maguirre though.

I am so with you on this one. I can't stand that arrogant, pompous ass. Guy thinks he's God's gift to football. Nice call Brew. ;-D

You have a point there. But at least he is not so intent on glossing the player that he doesn't point out when the screw up. He's tolerable, which isn't saying much given the competition.
