    Alright! Solomon and Ian! For my money the best current NFL broadcast team (no sarcasm)

    Really? I can't stand Solomon Wilcots, but that is probably because I have to listen to him with the biggest tool in the world, Adam Schein on Sirius NFL Radio every day.

    My favorite CBS broadcast team is Kevin Harlan and Rich Gannon. I love the way Harlan announces personnel changes on EVERY play.

    Of the FOX teams, Sam Rosen and T-Rock are my favorite.

    I liked the Gannon/Harlan team calling the Titans/Vikings this past weekend. Not too bad at all.

    T-Rock... ? (I should be able to figure it out... but it's early).

    I hate most of the big name crews... they come into the game with preconceived story lines that they've worked on all week. So they always spin the game to fit these special interest stories (it's annoying as hell.... you know... never let the game get in the way of a good story...WTF). I find Buck and Aikman the worst for this, but they all do it to varying degrees.

    Don Criqui calling the Bengals/Titans was 10 different kinds of awful. How does that guy stay in the booth?

    T-Rock = Tim Ryan.

    Admittedly, nothing at all compares to the pain that is Tony Kornheiser.

    I never thought I'd be dissapointed when we have MNF games.

    I remember a couple of years back when we played in Houston (the Vince Young OT-run game), and I swear to god there were at least five occasions where Criqui called VY Steve McNair. Then there was the Bills game that year where Criqui called Travis Henry "Travis Thomas".
