Recently?

If not, maybe he should consider it again because lately he sounds more and more like a man in dire need of a "happy ending" (unless Phil is handling that).

nantz and simms are good commentators for CBS, I love the Collingsworth-Michaels duo the most.

no one is "blaming" Nantz and Simms. They're just discussing what they think of the announcing duo. I actually like Simms, even though he seems to just love it when we lose. Nantz, on the other hand, i can't stand.

Michaels is the only one of those four that actually belong behind a microphone.

I think that Michaels is an excellent play-by-play guy, but I also think that if it was just him it would be boring as hell. Michaels needs Collinsworth and as color commentators go, Collinsworth is one of the best. He doesn't shy away from bad calls or stupid decisions and will point them out if he sees them and as far as the "X's and O's" go, he knows what he's talking about. The banter between him and Michaels is more like eavesdropping on two good friends watching a game instead of the statistical yak yak I hear from most everyone else and I like that feeling.

The ESPN crew by comparison all sound as if they each have an NFL encyclopedia in front of them and they spend three hours spouting one useless statistic after another and after about ten minutes it all sounds like white noise. I also don't appreciate the "choreography" of having one of them constantly running at the mouth until a second or two before the snap.

Sometimes (many times) it's perfectly OK to just shut up and say nothing. This, after all, is television, not radio so I don't have to be constantly reminded of what I just saw for myself or am seeing right this minute, nor do I have to be bombarded with all of the "filler" between plays.

That's one of the best things about Michaels and Collinsworth - if they don't have something to say, they don't say anything and when they ARE saying something, it's in a conversational tone rather than the frenetic jabbering you get from someone like Jaworski.

Put another way, if these crews were compared to music, the ESPN crew would be over- amplified techno-pop while Michaels and Collinsworth would be smooth jazz.

I agree.....believe it or not, Collnsworth has turned into one of the, if not the best and most interesting commentator.
Michaels is OK, but he's a league apologist who won't do the hard criticizing when its justified and/or obvious. Chris, on the other hand, doesn't even hesitate.

I wish Troy Aikman would join CBS so we could hear him every once in a while. Though, I don't care for his over dramatic counterpart Joe Buck.

Phil Simms is such a douche, though. Not only is his commentating not the least interesting, I've always thought he was anti-Pittsburgh too. I hate it when he says, "I know the fans want a flag, but......"
