- CBS has doubleheader; Fox runs a single game
- With a single game, Fox’ top voices of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman work Thursday night and will be fully distributed around the country. They’ll be off Sunday.
- Byes: Chicago, Cincinnati, Houston and NY Giants
- It will be cloudy and in the 30s in Green Bay when the Packers host Seattle on CBS’ late game with Nantz, Romo and Wolfson.
- What makes Erin Andrews (left) better than Pam Oliver (right) whom she unseated years ago? Probably nothing! So Oliver is #2 and Andrews is #1. Did I hear age discrimination?
- Adam Amin calls three sports very well, football, baseball and basketball. He was an excellent Fox hire.
- Brian Custer, another ESPN gem. So ESPN lets Amin go to Fox and opens the door for below average play-by-players like Custer.
- So one announcer says the score is “4 zero.” What follows is that many announcers say it’s “4 zero” instead of the customary, “four – nothing” Language changes inexorably. Now folks say, “it’s like I said,” and it’s fine. Growing up, “It’s as I said.”
