Maybe Suzy should color commentate or just show up in a bikini all year long.

Theisman is terrible.... I loved his comment about the field goal going out the door and two plays later they go for a field goal-

Next he says he hurt his toe and says that Boller is going to be out for a long time- I would love to see Boller back in before the end of the game, although that's probably not going to happen-

And, while were at it, bring back Melissa Stark.

And, Lisa Guerrero, but make her wear a thong.

I should totally replace McGuire and Theismann as the announcer on SNF.

As much as I hate them I find it amusing to listen to some of the veiled insults. Like when McGuire told Theismann to shut up (pretty blatant) or when McGuire talked about how Todd Heap hadn't done anything and Theismann said that he changes the game in ways that don't show up in the box score seconds later (rather subtle).

Worst announcer still is John Madden. No one states the obvious better than him. Too bad Pat Summeral doesnt announce anymore. What about bringing Monday and Sunday Night Football to CBS? They have arguably the best announcer corps around.

Madden left the announcer booth years ago. He's been mailing it in for longer now then he was ever great.

I pray that some smart exec will come up with an idea that the color guys should study all sorts of facts, factoids, stats, and trivia to use when needed. But above all else they should tell them to knock off the damned prepared commentary.

Just watch the game and tell us why we just saw what we just saw. There will be plenty of time for jokes and spewing of trivia, but please stop the prepared crap. There is nothing I hate more than to hear about how so and so is the best in the league at whatever, while watching them suck.

Double Amen, Mooch. Back in the day, I used to mute the TV and listen to Van Miller on WGR-AM in Buffalo while watching the Bills. By and large, the radio guys totally out-do the TV guys -- they have to do ACTUAL color commentary, and they have to know their stuff. And they don't show up in a suit and tie and makeup and play entertainer to pay alimony to their 5 ex-wives. Theismann is definitely the worst. Period.
