With the first three games of the Green Bay Packers' 2013 season all being called by Joe Buck and Troy Aikman on Fox, the NFL broadcaster finally breaks trend this upcoming weekend. Kenny Albert will do play by play and Daryl Johnston will have color commentary when the Packers host the Detroit Lions on Sunday [...]


this should make some happy.

The Moose isn't much better imo.

I tune them out. I watch the game and don't pay attention to the talking heads.

I figure they are a part of the show for the shallow and uninformed.

I would turn down the TV and listen to the radio broadcast but watching the TV and listening to the radio drives my wife nuts.
She says the radio description doesn't match what she is seeing on TV.

the ONLY pair of announcers that are any good are Al Michaels and whomever he's with. He's that good. There's a guy on NFL Network that's good too, mike mayock, but I don't have NFL network so i dont hear them. Everyone else sucks.

And Wayne Larivee is terrible too. He's way too excited for EVERY play. He'd be great at announcing hockey games. Sorry, a ten yard pass incompletion is not worth "ooooh the pass is ..... its dropped!!!!!!!" in the first quarter at the middle of the field on 2nd down.

Z2C, you hit Larivee right on the head.
He makes a 1 yard run sound like 20 and then comes the let down.
It still beats Aikman.

Of course part of my Aikman issueis from his Cowboy days, I think.

Some say Troy Aikman hates the Packers. I disagree. He and his team made the Packers his bitches during the 90's. He should love the Packers, if not frickin pity them.

I find Moose far worse than Aikman. Aikman to me seems to have a little bit of a QB lovecrush on Rodgers and likes watching the offense when it gets rolling. Moose absolutely dogs everything GB does.

Another problem for Aikman is being paired with Buck who tries to be part color guy/part analyst/social commentator/part fantasy gm/part fantasy coach etc who never shuts the f*ck up and tells you who's lined up in the slot or who came in motion out of the backfield. And EVERY game Buck manages to drag some obscure factoid up in order to give a verbal blowjob to Aikman and you get the two laughing awkwardly in the booth.

You guys really like Al Micheals.... That guy is so boring.

Buck and Aikeman aren't that bad. They're better than all the guys on fox. The best guys are Gruden and Trico

I miss Pat Summerall. He said so much by saying so little.

Joe Buck never seems into a game. His style works for baseball, but he's miscast as a football announcer.

I do like Kenny Albert, though. I could care less if Moose criticizes the Packers (and sometimes he's right), but Albert, Moose, and Siragusa always seem into the game. They aren't homers. There's not much more I can ask from announcers. Frankly, they're my favorite FOX crew.
