    With every press release you feel the Football Season is getting closer and closer. CBS finally put together its hieracrchy of NFL Announcing teams, and the list really hasn't changed from last year. There is however a new member that we need to welcome to the "Eye". Dan Fouts, who was not renewed by ABC, has been brought on to do both NFL and SEC games for the network....

    Jim Nantz and Phil Simms
    Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf
    Dick Enberg and Randy Cross or Dan Fouts
    Kevin Harlan and Rich Gannon
    Ian Eagle and Solomon Wilcots
    Gus Johnson and Steve Tasker
    Don Criqui, Bill Macatee and Steve Beuerlein or Dan Fouts


    Good for Fouts, I'm a homer of course but I really like Fouts' announcing. CBS would be smart to dump Randy Cross, he comes accross as a bitter know-it-all, plus he makes a lot of mistakes.

    I thought that Fouts did a great job with the college football stuff, and I'm looking forward to listening to him on CBS. Hopefully he gets a chance to do some Chargers games!

    I like Phil Simms and Jim Nantz, I hope we get them a lot.

    I can't stand the Greg Gumbel/Dan Dierdorf combo that we seem to end up with so often.

    Geez .. I still can't believe Randy Cross has a gig. Fouts was great when he did Pro Football in the early 90s. I am glad he is back.

    It would only make sense for Fouts to do EVERY Chargers game on CBS.

    Unfortunately, CBS like many TV networks has some idiots in charge of deciding who does what.

    Cross and Dierdorf are the absolute worst! I can't stand those guys, they never seem to have anything good to say about the Chargers, and rip them whenever the opportunity arises. I am convinced that both of their wives were screwed by someone in the Chargers organization.

    Looking at Dierdorf's picture, I wouldn't be surprised.

    I also think Cross' "wife" is just a beard. ;)

    Dierdork and Cross force me to the radio to listen. I would love to get Fouts as a regular on Chargers broadcasts. He's as quick a read in the booth as he was on the field.

    The trio of Vermeil, Jaworski, and that other guy that did our 2006 season opening MNF broadcast in Oakland were also really good.

    I hope Fouts does color. He's a great color guy, but a mediocre play by play man.

    Yeah, I would figure Enberg or Criqui would be the play-by-play guy paired up with Fouts. :tup:
