Bills @ Jaguars was pretty lame so far.

Defenses dominating and 3-3 at the half. :sleep:

Bottles is so bad. I don't think either team makes the playoffs if they were in the NFC.

I used to despise Buck and generally dislike Aikman. However, after listening to them this year I have reached the conclusion that while Buck is still annoying, Aikman is a complete Moron. It is really bad if you listen to Romo call a game with Nantz at Noon and then go to Fox at 315 and it is like "Holy crap my head is going to explode over how bad this is."

Aikman has nothing insightful to say. His comments are all basicaly this:

"[Insert Marquee Player's Name here] is pro's pro and he does what it take to get the job done."

OR

"[Insert popular team's name here] are a good team and they know what they have to do to get this done."

OR

"[Insert popular player's name here] is really good at what he does and so and so has to do a better job if he wants to stop him."

It hurt my brain typing that...

I think Romo and Greg Olson (when he announced that game against the Rams) will lead a Flux of younger announcers that will replace guys like Aikman and Fouts (although I do like Fouts as an announcer). I can't believe how good Romo is at color commentary. He found his next career, that's for sure.

I actually really enjoyed Greg Olson announcing. Was pretty awesome at it. I still disagreed with him being allowed to do it, but he was good at it.

Agreed. We'll see/hear him on Sundays when he's done.

Olsen did very well. I wish Mayock could get a primetime gig.
