John Madden is the all time favorite for me.

These days I really enjoy Simms.

Dan Founts is the one I can't stand. He sounds like a effing moron

I think everyone liked Madden in the early days. It was like bringing that ultra-cool Miller Lite commercial to the broadcast booth. But over time, the act got kinda stale and the quality of analysis went down as the esoteric idol worship and push for laughs increased. He's still a loveable guy but I'm glad he's out of the game now. I liked Paul Maguire in the way you guys probably like Madden. He's likeable, kinda goofy, but says some smart things.

Theismann is unwatchable, I agree. Gruden is very good when he's on and really tough to watch when he's not.

Ya Gruden is another good one but I like him best as a pre game analyst.

It's John Madden. The quotes of "Ya see, whoever finishes the game with the most points wins," and the crazy Thanksgiving Turducken ramblings where he starts drawing his meal on top of the live game were masterpieces. I'm still extremely sad that those are all just memories now.

You're right Madden did get stale. The turkey leg on the trailer thing was lame.

I'd pretty much sign that list.

Enberg is awesome. Anyone that can do tennis AND football and sound great at either is O.K. in my book.

Always liked Madden, too... overexposed or not.

I'm actually fine with Theisman, too... mostly because he was a huge Elway supporter back when it was en vogue to call John a "choker."

If you include radio the KOA guys are great for Broncos games. If the lag time wasn't different I would listen to them exclusively.

Collinsworth needs to go at the top of these lists. He's very good at dropping the finer points of the game when he can. I always enjoyed Simms's wry humor as well.

Much better announcer than QB. His "Grease Board" segment on the college games is actually pretty good.

I was going to say. He should have been in the first effing post.

And Joe Buck? Maybe the worst PBP in big moments I've ever heard. Ever. Monotone, boring, absurd. And I'll never forgive him for getting all faux-outrage when Moss pretended to moon the crowd in Green Bay. ****ing retarded.

Great: Tirico
Good: Enberg, Michaels, and Simms
Tolerable: Madden (he'd be higher but he was a Raider and, by my count, that makes exactly 1 tolerable person ever affiliated with the Raiders in the history of the world)


Everybody else sucks (unless I forgot somebody but you get my drift). Granted Fouts is arguably the suckiest suck who's ever sucked and Theeeeeseman is about as entertaining as passing a 12 lb kidney stone. Paul Maguire is entertaining but only for a few brief moments when his meds wear off just enough to let his dementia come through. Gruden is holding back...way holding back. I would love to hear him do analysis like a Monday film session. That would be entertainment but probably suited for HBO. Joe Buck is a pretentious, condescending dillwad in the mold of Bob Costas. I can't listen to him do football because all I think about is his "Post season on Fox" baseball voice. Then there's the issue of his 2, maybe 3 episodes of Joe Buck Live. Christ what a ****ing train wreck. Joe Buck's a tool.
