So, what's your call? For me, they have to have a certain degree of entertainment. Just rambling facts and stats gets tedious. Therefore Buck/Aikman and Nants/Simms goes out the window. I like Gruden but not so much Tirico. So it's either Michaels/Collinsworth or Nessler/Mayock, the latter two has grown on me.

Collinsworth is hilarious in his laid back way so I'm going with them!

Michael and Collinsworth by a distance.

I like Tirico and Gruden. Tirico is basically just play-by-play so he's fine and Gruden has real good insight and knowledge along with some humour. Otherwise I like Nantz and Simms (maybe a little homerism, there) and the worst I would have to say is the Buck/Aikman partnership. Buck is far too boring and Aikman is such a homer and often gets 'facts' wrong.

Ian (Eye-uhn) Eagle and Dan Fouts are a really good pairing, only downside is that they pretty much only work West Coast CBS games.

Brennaman/Billick is good also. Stockton's a little long in the tooth and Lynch is good, too.

Michaels, though, is the best play-by-play man by some distance.

Especially with the betting references he sneaks in... "That earthquake you just felt was in Las Vegas..."

My vote will be Mike Mayock and whoever they put him with. Mayock is the best color guy by a mile.

Kenny Albert creeps the hell out of me.

I've never been able to differentiate in all my years watching to be honest .

They all sound like the same overly excited , generic American sports guy to be fair .

The only time I hear a voice and know instantly who it is , is Tony Romo. Everybody else is basically Scott Hanson from Redzone.

ESPN has their solution staring them right in the face with Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit. They were excellent in the Giants-Steelers game. Yet, they are going with (3 again :blink:) Steve Levy, Brian Griese and Louis Riddick, the latter who apparently can only comment on safety-plays.

How can it be so difficult? It's not like Chris and Kirk are nobodys in the football-world
