    Jets/Phins is two major markets in a 1 p.m. match-up, it makes sense they get a good announcing pair.

    With all that said, it doesn't really make sense that we're getting a second-rate crew. The Ravens/Bengals game is the only AFC game where both teams are in a dog-fight for playoff positioning, and it's got by far the two best teams with a combined 20 wins between them (vs. every other AFC game having two teams adding up to 18 or fewer wins). Such is the burden of two small-market teams playing week 17.

    Miami-Dade county is the 8th highest population county in the country according to the 2010 census. Broward, which is just to the north and would also be considered primarily the Miami Dolphins' home-crowd, is the 18th. Palm Beach, just north of Broward and still Phins territory, is 28th. The three combine for a 5.5MM population which is comparable to Chicago and larger than Houston. The only markets that are bigger, split with two (or more) franchises.

    I dont understand why they changed the times of the AFCN games when they are not showing them anywhere other then their local markets.

    Actually when it comes to the two main networks, the #1 crews pretty much suck, so it's no real insult to not have to listen to them.

    I used to hate Wilcotts. Lately I've learned to appreciate him. Maybe it's just his analysis on NFLN that has me liking him.

    If you look at the TV distribution maps, most of the country will also be stuck with Tebows/Chiefs at 4:00. Not surprised they also drew the A-team announcers.

    I think the simple truth is that the country at large is more interested in seeing if Tebow can finish this amazing story and put his team in the playoffs, after taking over for a 1-4 team where no one thought he would succeed. Even though Ravens Bengals will probably be a much better game, with much more on the line - I just don't think people in flyover country really care about the Ravens or the Bengals, or Flacco or Dalton.

    I don't think it's a swipe at any teams, or disrespectful, I just think it shows how crazy this Tebowmania has gotten.

    After listening to Wilcotts on SiriusXM NFL radio for years I realized that he isn't the usual talking head. This guy really knows football. I'm glad he's doing our game.

    I really like Ian Eagle. He knows how to call a play. Whether it is an Ed Reed interception or a Torrey Smith TD.

    By the way, does anyone else think that Eagle sounds very similar to Albert?

    Who is the color commentator on the Bengals radio crew that grunts all the time and yells "YEAAAH!" real loud when good stuff happens? That guy is hilarious. Most radio booths are two guys who keep themselves contained for the most part. Cincy's radio booth sound like cheerleaders. It's rather amusing.

    Personally, I couldn''t care less who the announcer is. I turn the sound down and just watch the game in the family room. I'll make all my own sounds. Announcers suck.

    Being an old fart, I can appreciate quasi play-by-play verbage in the days of radio. With TV, we see it and do not need words from those shitheads. Now, if it was Chuck

    Would love to see the networks provide SAP that was only field mics. Crank up the surround sound and enjoy!

    There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for and why it is here it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarrely inexplicable…

    There is another theory which states that this - has - already - happened…
