    Madden and Summerall were a hoot.

    Romo was great IMO, how Collinsworth keeps his job is beyond me.

      I like Chris Collinsworth as a commentator... does that make me a bad person?

        I love him as an announcer. I love his enthusiasm and analysis. He certainly comes across as a player but also has the football smarts. He makes me excited over different plays that happen and n real time.

        At first I was critical but he grew on me. He’s exciting and has football smarts. I like him much better than Collingsworth and others.

        I feel he’s very relatable to the common football fan.

          Yup! Just kidding. But I can’t stand the guy.

            I like both of their commentaries.... both have good football insight.

              I don't listen all that much to "color analysts" and don't really care much for any of them. Romo was fine in the beginning (I have to add a disclaimer that other than Bronco games I don't watch much anymore, I don't even watch all Bronco games ... anymore) with him but lately not so much. Still I probably would say he gets a C+ from me FWTW My buddy and wife that watch the game with me say I am much better at commenting than any they hear. Romo seemed annoying to me the last game but I don't remember why.

              JOHN MADDEN WAS GREAT! I was a Raider fan back when Madden coached too. sorry... wait not sorry )

                  No. To each his/her own. It's a matter of style and taste.

                    I think Romo is awful. He's too busy talking to actually add details that mean a lot. I want a color guy to paint the picture on the field from what I can't see on TV, instead Romo just talks. He also gets a lot wrong. From last week when he talked about "the Broncos just using another ay to get a double team" when the coverage was definitely either cover 3 or cover 4 (not a defense with double coverage in it). To when he was speculating on why Pittsburgh turned down a penalty that you could see they accepted and the officials were just discussing exactly how it would be enforced.

                    He's not Phil Simms bad "oh wow Jeeem" but he's not nearly as good as the praise that's heaped on him.

                    Collinsworth is great. I understand people dislike his voice, but he tells you something about what's going on, or what just happened, then the replay almost always confirms that and he explains what he's talking about using the replay. From an X's and O's perspective there's no one better as a color commentator.

                    In my opinion.

                      His voice has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that his color commentary is tainted with his personal bias!

                      Ruins games with his "ring less :lombardi: perspective," IMO.

                          I think people wrongly attribute bias to Collinsworth.

                          I’ve had chances to listen to him far more than I have Romo, who I’ve maybe listened to once or twice.

                          Romo doesn’t have any rings so I guess that means you think he ruins games too.

                            I really like Romo in the booth. He's an ok announcer too. badum tsh.

                            Seriously though, I think he's pretty good, and way better than I thought he would be. I remember thinking he would suck, and Cutler would be better. I was way off, but in my defense we never got to hear Cutler. And I still want some Jay Cutler calling games, because if he kept it real, he could bring a whole new flavor to the games. Much like Kosar used to do for the Cleveland preseason games. It was hilarious listening to Kosar just destroy 2nd and 3rd string quarterbacks.

                            I can't think of too many announcers I'd rather hear than Romo. I can't stand Mike Tirico. Dan Fouts kind of sucks. Al Michaels occasionally says some of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard, but it's more funny than obnoxious. Tirico is just obnoxious, and I can't stand him. I don't know how many times I've said, "Shut up troll" while he was calling games. Never had a problem with Simms or Collinsworth. Also, I think Joe Tessitore is doing an amazing job right now. I always loved him announcing boxing, and he brings the same energy to the NFL. It might be a little over the top, but he makes games more exciting than they really are, and I think that's the whole point.

                              agreed. I think he calls em like he sees em. When teams make bad plays he calls it that way and fans think it's because he is he hates them. I watched the Football Life show about him a week or so ago. he said he gets mail from fans every team asking why he hates that team.

                                what bias is that?
