That would upgrade the game.

 

That may bring MNF back to what it was before the change but NBC would be pissed !!

No, the New England Patriots television football network gets those.

Maybe during a timeout Peyton could entertain us with the story of how he put his balls on the face of a female doctor that was examining his foot while at Tennessee. Harmless prank, hahaha.

Buck and Aikman are no where near the top 4.... theyre horrendous. And same with Tirico and Collinsworth... Tirico is good but Collinsworth drags them down

I don’t like Buck and Aikman.  Mostly, due to hating listen to Aikman.  I can’t stand him.  It’s all about him defending his ego when nobody cares.

Just get that idiot Tessatore off the air.  I will NOT watch another NFL game with this over-excited, everything-is-a-huge-moment moron doing the play by play.  If the Bills are playing and he's the announcer I'll mute the TV.

 
cant stand him either. Between his contrived excitement when the kicker is warming up kicking into the net as halftime winds down and then Snot telling ‘AMERICA’ how to scheme an offense and trying to sound witty and insightful...

No one likes booger.    He is mocked to the ends of the internet on every platform 


 

We all understand that.

 

His likability before he got the job, was good and got him the job.
 

his incompetence after he started doing the job has transcended his likable personality.  
 

That is my point and why Manning may not fare as well as many assume he will, just because he is likable at now.

This describes it to a T.  Perfect example:  as the Bills were lining up for the FG to send the playoff game into OT, Tessatore breathlessly exclaims:

 

"NEVER in the HISTORY of the NFL has a playoff game gone to OT TIED AT NINETEEN!!!!!!!"

best work since Dierdorf excitedly reminded us five times during a playoff OT that it cannot end in a tie.

He still seems like a nice enough guy.  It's just the Pepper Brooks bit is only good for movies.

It'll be a crash of metal if they put Manning in the booth. It's one thing to be marketable and likeable in a commercial when you have 174 takes to get it right. In a live setting with no net? Him? Hayseed?

 

Good luck.

Report: NBC rejects Al Michaels trade overtures from ESPN

Posted by Mike Florio on March 10, 2020, 10:25 AM EDT
 

At a time when there haven’t been many trades in advance of the start of the new league year, there also won’t be many (or any) trades among the NFL media.

 

Andrew Marchand of the New York Post reports that NBC has rejected initial overtures from ESPN regarding a trade for Sunday Night Football play-by-play announcer Al Michaels. ESPN reportedly wants to pair Michaels with Peyton Manning, to whom ESPN reportedly has offered up to $20 million per year.
