    Re: Brad Nessler and Todd Blackledge

    I like Danielson also. Great insight.

    I think Herbstreet and Musburger are not very good.

    I like this crew and Verne/Danielson better.

    Sean has the best voice of all of them. I loved the 99 Florida game he announced. I agree that Ness and Blackledge are the top duo.

    Nessler is a real pro. There is a reason he does all of the Thursday night NFL games. Blackledge is good, too.

    Nessler and Blackledge are the best in the biz...but I agree with several, I love listening to Herbie and Mussberger.

    If Verne ever retires, I think a good combo for CBS would be Sean McDonough and Gary Danielson. Nessler and Blackledge are the best right now. I can take any announcer except Musburger. He is, and always has been, terrible.

    Didn't I see Rece Davis announcing a game the other day? Would be cool to have him do our games...nothing wrong with a little homerism.

    This.

    Actually, I'd take any combination of Nessler/McDonough and Danielson/Herbie/Blackledge.

    Nessler is a pro....Blackledge and he have good chemistry....I could see Nessler and Herbstreit being a good duo as well.

    You can always tell with him, that he has a favorite (perhaps it's an individual player like Tebow, or one of the teams playing). Now, I'm sure all broadcasters do. Human beings can't help that. But he's not the best at keeping the audience in the dark about it. It's subtle most of the time, some of the time it's not though. I'm not a fan of it either way.

    Rece is one of the best and you'd never know he was a Bama alum. Always enjoy his work!

    +1 Gray.

    Mustardburger drives me crazy - it always seems he is pulling for one team or the other and also suffers from foot in mouth disease at times.

    I'm with you on the others you listed.

    I used to think he had a big bias. If he does, he's done well to hide it, at least this season. He did fall in love with Tebow. But man crushes are one thing. I think he does a fantastic job, he's just getting old.
