    Simms and Nantz Commentating

    Why are CBS top game commentators doing a game between a 1-4 and 2-3 team, I like the fact that we get some good commentators and one that is a fan of Harrington. But doesn't anyone else think that it is a little wierd for them to get this game?

    I heard Marino got short with Simms over his TD record and Simms took a jab at Marino with the "Favre will have an easy time breaking" type comment.

    He said something like that but what does that have to do with them being the commentators?

    These things are decided months ago. Why do you think it is a national start time of 4:15? When the schedule came out this was going to be The first place Dolphins against an up and coming NYJ team. The network thought they were going to get Shock and Awe not "Suck and Blow"

    No, I'm pretty sure all the commentators get their assignments a week ahead of time which is why we got stuck with sucky commentators in 2004 and part of last year.

    I'm disappointed, I was starting to get attached to Steve Tasker. :goof:

    Seriously, it's likely we got the top crew because of the rivalry factor and the other CBS games are nothing to write home about.

    yeah, but I think it's more like 2 weeks in advance.
