    If you were watching the Jags Titans game yesterday from home, your ears where in for it. Don Criqui and Randy Cross were calling the game and OH MY GOD those two together made me have to mute the TV.

    It's bad enough we finished 6-10, but listening to those guys was awful.

    They repeatedly referred to Jared Cook as Jason Cook, and Cook wasn't even playing

    They called T-Rac Wile E. Coyote

    Former Titans DE Jason Babin apparently has a twin brother named Justin who is also a DE

    They didn't know the difference between McCourty and Verner, every time McCourty would make a play they credited Verner (who was on the other side if the field)

    And like I said, I had to mute the TV, so I'm sure I'm missing something.

    I guess it shouldn't come as much of a surprise, I mean what good commentators would call that game? a 2-14 team and a 6-10 team, yea they found out the hard way that they suck at their job.

    They were just celebrating the New Year a day early. But seriously, Randy Cross was drunk. I would be too if I was forced to call a week 17 Jags @ Titans game.

    It may have honestly been the worst/most comical announcing job I've ever heard. They were maybe slightly more competent than these guys...

    It's the Jags and Titans in the finale, they were probably bored.

    A lot of people struggle with the names and looking at the wrong roster, but Cross was the worst that I've heard.

    Jags @ Titans at the end of the season. You knew CBS was sending their worst team out to call it. Those guys probably called some BS college bowl game the day before.

    Maybe they received news before they were being fired and wanted to go out with a bang
