That picture pretty much sums up my feelings about how the Divisional Playoffs went with Drew Brees and the Saints knocked out by the Niners after one of the great all-time playoff games. Maybe Drew can take the time to try his hand at television in the meantime if the opportunity arises as we suggested yesterday. Alas, the Playoffs go on with Championship Sunday just five days away. The AFC game goes first from New England followed by the NFC game in San Francisco. Also note the interesting Pro Bowl announcing team NBC has lined up. Dan Hicks joins Mike Mayock and Doug Flutie on play by play instead of Tom Hammond from Hawaii. At least Brees and Rodgers can have their shootout there.

This might be the worst thing ever done. This is worse than Sports Soup. This is so unbelievably bad. And, no, I doubt someone with as large a career catalog as Jim Nantz was "seriously jealous" of the circus act that is Gus Johnson. He's a clown. And this is one step up from the Carmelo Anthony "kill a snitch" video.
I have no doubt Jim Nantz was seriously jealous of Johnson's NCAA tourney popularity. I wonder when the same thing will happen with Joe Buck. And it will happen.
@djslybri Good point. I have the over/under at how long they'll both be at Fox before something happens at 3.5 years.
