    They should team up Madden with Frank Caliendo for one game, and have Frank do the Madden impression. Maybe I will be able to sit through an entire football game if they team up.

    Siragusa is one of the worst. Who decided to give that clod a mic? No one outside of Baltimore cares about that buffoon.

    And yes, the MNF is one of the worst in the history of televised sports. Almost as bad as Theisman and McQuire a few years ago. Actually, they're worse.

    I agree with the ratings except the goose and moose combo which should had been rated higher. Tim Ryan and Sam Rosen knows their job and work great as a team. If you don't believe me, you can listen to Tim Ryan's show on Sirius NFL Radio in the weekday mornings. He knows his stuff and he's hilarious.

    yes.....he might as well broadcast in a Romo jersey. Not even Aikmen or Johnston are as bad as this cowgirl.

    Ranking Dierdorf and Simms above Aikman is ridiculous.

    And the fact that Bryant Gumbel is sitting above ANYONE makes SI lose all credibility to me. Collinsworth is great but Gumbel is the worst commentator of them all...he's the Tim McCarver of the NFL
