    I would like to see CBS and Fox use a few different announcers during the playoffs rather than just the #1 team. The #1 team would still do the divisional round and conference championships, but, give other teams a chance to do the wild card. I would love to see Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts get to do a playoff game for CBS.

  • Max Vrany

    @E, the current thought is Eagle and Fouts will get promoted to #2 next year after Dierdorf retires.

  • Jagger Dagger

    Please, anyone other than Phil Simms announcing the game.
