Worst in the business due to their arrogance and ignorance at times, and the fact they say things with such confidence and bias. Sometimes they just need to shut up :-#

could not agree more... and Maguire and Theisman just feed off of each other - each is annoying enough in their own right, but together, they personify pure announcing evil...

Very good point, when I heard about that I jumped for joy. Its amazing. The big commentators like them are worse than the Fox and CBS ones. Madden and Michaels arent nearly as bad, but they still arent my favorite.

I like Mike Patrick but Theismann and McGuire suck some serious ass....

Its so damn annoying, Theissman and MgGuire just get into arguments with each other every game and instead of announcing the game the whole time they just try to get one up on the other.

Mike Patrick is so good he nearly makes up for it, in my mind, he's my favorite announcer anywhere in football he just seems like he's your best friend sitting there watching the game with you. I never have liked Al Micheals, and Madden gets tiresome, so I think they are worse then Theisman and Mcguire

Theismann and McGuire sometimes contradict statements they just made which absolutely hilarious to hear. They're both the worst announcers in football.

Again, I like Mike Patrick b/c he's doesn't show any bias towards any team where Theismann and McGuire bounce back and forth like ping pong balls.

Mike Patrick is a great commentator in my opinion.

Thiesmann and Maguire, just need to shut-up. They spend 1/2 the night arguing...and the other half stating the obvious.

Like going on and on and on about Dwight Freeney...Like de ja vu all over again, from last years Colts/Ravens game. Just ranting and raving how amazing he is.
