Broadcast Notes Week #7
- CBS has the doubleheader. Fox, the single game.
- Joe Buck is busy with baseball. He and Troy Aikman work Thursday and are off on Sunday.
- Greg Gumbel lives here in South Florida. The weather and the beaches must agree with him. He is still sharp at 75.
- The Manning brothers are back Monday with a side-by-side versions of MNF on ESPN2.
- Kenny Albert needs a chill pill. In addition to the NFL for Fox, he’s now the number one man for Turner on the NHL. He also squeezes in Rangers games when he can.
- Fox’ Greg Olsen sounds good in his first full season as a commentator. His usual boothmate Kevin Burkhardt is out on baseball work in the studio. Joe Davis takes his spot. Maybe Olsen can give Davis a strong pinch in the arm before kickoff so that this overrated voice has some energy to to his call. A young man with a lofty assignment and it sounds like he’s in the library and doesn’t want to wake anybody up.
- Trent Green who partners with the sonorous Kevin Harlan disappointed me at the end of the Jacksonville win over Miami. He added little to the heart-throbbing finish. When the Jaguars made a gutsy call with some four seconds left to throw the ball for a quick first down and have an easier shot at a winning field goal, he should have pointed out that had the Dolphins not the touched the receiver, the clock would have expired. Once the receiver was touched, the clocked stopped with one second left. The game would then have gone into overtime. Green missed a critical point. Boomer Esiason pointed it out later on The NFL Today.
