Some of you have been listening/watching NFL games a lot longer than some others, so your more familiar with all of these guys.

Regardless, choose who your favorite team is.
Imagine: your team wins the Super Bowl and you save the game forever on DVD. Who do you like the most to be the broadcasting team?

I will list most of them here, but only can put a fraction of them in the poll for you to select. If you choose other, tell us who you like most.

CBS:
Jim Nantz-Phil Simms
Greg Gumbell-Dan Dierdorf
Ian Eagle-Dan Fouts
Marv Albert-Rich Gannon

Don Criqui is my favorite voice! He should be featured with Nantz instead of Simms IMO.

FOX:
Joe Buck-Troy Aikman-Pam Oliver
Kenny Albert-Moose Johnston-Tony Siragusa
Gus Johnson-Charles Davis*
D!ck Stockton-John Lynch
Tom Brennaman-Brian Billick

NBC:
Al Michaels-Cris Collinsworth-Michelle Tafoya

ESPN
Mike Tirico-Ron Jaws-Jon Gruden

I like Jim Nantz and Phil Simms a lot. I guess I'll take Gus Johnson and Charles Davis for Fox, and I like NBC's team a lot as well.

I really don't mind most of them because unless they're calling a Packers game, I rarely listen to what's being said. My listening tends to go in and out on gameday, I'm much more focused on everything else whether it be RedZone, Fantasy, posting. \

What about the Monday Night Football team?

I want Gus Johnson on play by play and color by Mayock.

Al Michaels is cool, but Chris Collinsworth chokes on a dick every time he talks.

Why isn't Grudens crew on there?

I love it when Albert, Moose and the Goose have an Eagles game. I will mute it if Aikman is even close to a mic, Mix that with Joe Buck and you have the worst case of verbal diarrhea.

I like the gruden Jaws and Tirico the most as a team, but Gus Johnson might be my favorite single current commentator. (off topic) especially his NCAA tourney commentary, guy is hilarious when he gets excited

I can't stand Joe Buck and Troy Aikman.

Seriously who the **** voted for these shitheads? They NEED to be banned from Giants games, they are the most biased pieces of **** I have ever heard. Giants make a nice stop, can't be we did something good it's "And _____ makes a big mistake their, he's a better player than that". Giants get a first down "And the d just messed up completely I don't know what happened there, they usually shut this offense down". Giants never do good, the other team just does bad http://www.deviantart.com/download/131344447/face_palm_by_Draculasaurus.gif smh

Buck's call of Tyree's catch in the Super Bowl is an abortion.

Joe Buck himself should have been aborted. I cannot stand him.

I voted for Gus and Charles Davis. I'm a big fan of both.

I had a hard time between Nantz/Simms and Johnson/Davis.

Those are probably the best broadcast teams out there. I chose Nantz and Simms on a coin flip I guess.

I hate Cris Colinsworth. NBC could have done better.

I like Gruden on MNF with Torico.

I get about as mad at Colinsworth when he speaks as I do when Jeff Van Gundy calls basketball games...

I've gone and made myself angry thinking about Van Gundy

"AIRS IT OUT DOWN THE FIELD.............it is caught by TYREE."

Ugh. Can't stand Gus Johnson. The dude is annoying as ****. He goes way overboard with his excitement, gets excited over minute things, he's too loud and worst of all he forgets his job which is calling the game when he is excited. If you listen to baseball on the radio, the best play-by-play guys are Ken Korach and Bill King. They really know the balance between calling the game and conveying excitement to the audience.

They all suck. With Jim Nantz and Phil Simms, you know they'll both say infinitely ******** things per game, so I guess that's slightly entertaining.

"AIRS IT OUT DOWN THE FIELD.............it is caught by TYREE."

Except he said in a monotone voice as if it a pee wee game. Marv Albert's radio call for that was amazing though so at least we have that.

I'm a Simms fan. I love what Gus Johnson brings to the table, but he really needs to learn football and stop botching player names, incorrectly identifying routes, etc.

Gus Johnson is great, not a huge Charles Davis fan but voted for them anyways. He's not bad or anything, just not great either.

I could live with Aikman if Buck weren't with him. Buck is the absolute worst and has been riding his dad's coattails his whole life. They need to get that schmuck off TV.

I'm an Eagle fan, so I really like hearing Jaws an Gruden on Monday night. Tirico doesn't take anything away.

Also like NBC, but that's really just Michaels in the booth and the SNF presentation overall.

Bucks voice is annoying, he sounds like a snob. I hated him since he said the Randy Moss fake moon celebration.

No he hasn't. He was legitimately good when he was just with the Cardinals in the 90s, just listen to his 62nd homer call. He's just stopped giving a **** and does stuff he isn't passionate about.

I figured a lot of the Midwest fans would love him because he has such an East Coast bias and you don't see that often.

I voted for Nantz/Simms, since they may be the only duo that I don't get angry listening to. Ron Pitts and Jim Mora did the Packers/Panthers game week two, and it was absolutely horrendous. Do other people hate listening to Gruden as much as I do?

I like CBS overall in everything. Announcers, tv quality ect...

Really? For me, CBS's HD is terrible. Fox has a much better picture.

Gus and Charles Davis.

Why isn't Grudens crew on there?
I thin I put them 2nd in the poll of choices.... I like Tirico, but Gruden bugs the hell out of me.

"This guy".... he always says. This guy...... and everyone's the best in the league.
Jaws is decent in film breakdown, but he bugs me as a play-by-play guy too.

I want Don Criqui-Bob Trumpy-Dick Enberg featured. Great voices, especially Criqui.

Just about every one of those teams have someone I don't like, however if I'm picking a team that get on my nerves the least I'm going Gruden, Jaws, Tirico.

For least-offensive, I'll go with Stockton-Lynch.

I really don't have a favorite announce team but my 2 favorite play by play guys are Gus Johnson and Ian Eagle. Then of course Brad Nessler (my favorite college play by play guy) who by the way, is doing the NFLN games this year.

Out of all the "A" teams, I prefer Nantz and Simms.

Big fan of Kevin Harlan, doesn't matter who he is with.

Titans usually get Ian Eagle, so I've grown accustom to his voice, and I can tolerate him.

Madden was fantastic before the senileness started to creep in. Same with his old cohort Pat Summerall.
Age gets the best of everyone eventually, if they live long enough.

I personally like Boomer Esiason more than Phil Simms. Boomer does the radio for the Monday nighters I think.
