I'd have to go for NBC. They do a great job with the game; Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth do a fine job with commentary. Their studio show is good as well.

I'd agree.. I like CBS' studio show better. But NBC for having only one "A" announcing team, has nailed it.

CBS' top team of Nantz/Simms.. I liked Simms, not so much with Nantz. And, I'm figuring I'll probably not like Romo for at least the first year.

I really hate the Joe Buck/Troy Aikman team on Fox.

I really wish they'd put Boomer Esiason back in the booth.. I listen to him on the radio quite often and I enjoy his calls of games.

NBC. SNF is like a cinematic experience. Maybe because they only have one game a week to nail but it's just better all around.

Hard to top Al Michaels, he is the ultimate in announcers, a true pro. I'm not sure how Romo can jump in and do games right out of the gate, to me it would have a learning curve. Joe Buck and Aikman get on my nerves at times.

Buck and Aikman get on my nerves all the time for me. Buck is so annoying to listen to these days.

I don't think there is anything worse than listening to Gruden as a broadcaster. He just sounds so.....stupid. Buck isn't far behind, but Gruden takes the crown for the worst in my book

hard to beat michaels and collinsworth in the booth. i like troy aikman, and joe buck doesnt bother me much, but john gruden needs to go back to coaching football and stop announcing it.

i really wish that guys like howard cosell, keith jackson, don meredeth, frank gifford, and john madden were still around in the booth.

Al Michaels is my favorite game caller. I like James Brown at CBS for pregame. I think FOX as a whole has the best pregame.

look at it this way, they could decide to pair troy aikman with john gruden, and then aikman would have to carry even more water than he does now.

would i like to see someone better than buck? yes, but i also realize that there are far worse announcers than buck.
