    From, obviously, USA Today....

    Here's how I voted:

    Best NFL game analyst: Collinsworth
    Best PBP: Al Michaels
    Best game crew: NBC
    Best pregame show: NFL Gameday Morning
    Best pregame host: Rich Eisen
    Best insider: Jay Glazer (Mizzou's boy, Florio, is currently leading. Wow.)
    Best sideline reporter: Andrea Kremer
    Best studio show: Inside the NFL

    Collinsworth was so bad on Sunday night that I can't vote for him.

    I would agree with Glazer as the best insider. It's unfair to put Florio with them, because as much as I like and respect the guy, he's not accountable to the same people as Glazer and Schefter.

    Yeah, I heard he was pretty awful (and actually the whole crew for not knowing why Cullen Jenkins wasn't in the game), but I was in the stands so I only caught that second-hand.

    I always used to go back and forth with the different pregame shows, but I started watching the NFLN show this season. I dig it.

    I think Eisen does a tremendous job.
     
  7. Despite my football loyalty, I always found Collinsworth to be very insightful and down to earth, something that Madden used to be. So I will go with him as the best color man in the biz. I don't have the problem with Michaels that others do, and while this may out me . . . I like listening to Gus Johnson when he doesn't cover the Steelers game. If nothing else, it makes it fun to listen to.

    There was a game between the Jets and Dolphins, I believe, in '82 maybe. The announce team was perfect.

    If we're talking analysts, I'll go with Jaws. Collinsworth is very good, but he just about caused my head to explode Sunday night.

    I think it's interesting that the media perceptions are so different from those of the general fan.

    And by interesting, I mean downright terrifying.

    Florio as an "Insider" is a fucking joke. He links to other writers. He has created a great compilation of NFL News but his being an "insider" is bullshit.
