6. Kenny Albert John Lynch Pam Oliver
John Lynch was a great player in the league. Although he is a once-in-a-generation type of talent on the field, he has less than impressive skills in the booth. Pam Oliver, however, is my favorite sideline reporter. The Doris Burke of the NFL.
5. Jim Nantz Phil Simms Tracy Wolfson
It is incredible that Phil Simms has a job. He is one of the worst broadcasters of our generation and was only a career "good enough to win" quarterback. I think Jim Nantz has a great knowledge of the game and wish they would pair him up with somebody more competent. Can we get Bill Cowher in the Booth?
4. Charles Davis Spencer Dedes Alex Flanagan
Charles Davis is the smartest announcer in national NFL broadcasting. He has a keen understanding of the subtle things that make plays work and teams win. He could be a front office executive if given the chance. Side note: (Not to be sexist, but) Alex Flanagan is gorgeous.
3. Sean McDonough Jon Gruden Lisa Salters
Gruden is great as always, but McDonough is awkward and doesn't have the chemistry with Gruden that viewers were used to seeing between him and Tirico. There has to be a better play-by-play guy in Bristol. I would love to see Mark Schlereth in the booth.
2. Al Michaels Cris Collinsworth Michele Tafoya
People give Collinsworth a hard time, when in reality he was a phenomenal player in the league and is a particularly brilliant football mind. Cris Collinsworth owns Pro Football Focus, which is the main advanced analytics source used by NFL minds.
1. Joe Buck Troy Aikman Erin Andrews
Realistically, when you are watching the broadcast the play-by-play guy is doing most of the talking. That is why Fox's team wins this power ranking. Joe Buck is the best in the biz at calling the action. He is able to rise to the moment and narrate any event with exciting brovado. Troy Aikman also is the most respectable player on these broadcast teams, and his insight allows the viewers to learn things they would not have before.
