I do not wish to pay for both cable and satellite and I have my ISP through the cable.
But I would really like to see how Lefty is doing....just as I like to get information on Pennington when I can.
A Marshall fan, eh, BP?
If it's gonna be the Jags (and they can't call it Hard Knocks w/o HBO's permission - wonder how the quality will compare with that of "it's not television, it's HBO), I guess we'll llearn everything we need to know about Chron's Disease.
But DAMN, BP. The Cowboys won't be one of the three live presentations they are doing.
NFL Network hires preseason broadcast trio
(June 16, 2004) -- NFL Network has hired veteran announcers Kenny Albert and Dan Fouts, plus newcomer Terrell Davis, as the on-air broadcast team that will call the network's three in-house produced preseason games this summer.
Analysis, opinions, features and more!
"The production of live preseason games represents another first in the short history of NFL Network," said network president and CEO Steve Bornstein. "We have assembled a top-notch production crew and are excited about the opportunity to produce live NFL game coverage for the first time."
The following is the NFL Network-produced schedule of live games:
Sun., Aug. 15 at 7:00 p.m. ET: Denver Broncos at Buffalo Bills
Sat., Aug. 21 at 4:30 p.m. ET: Detroit Lions at Cleveland Browns
Thurs., Sept. 2 at 6:30 p.m. ET: Jacksonville Jaguars at New England Patriots
Veteran producer Mark Wolff, who produced last year's Super Bowl for CBS, has been hired to produce NFL Network's preseason slate and FOX's Rich Russo, one of the premiere directors in the business, will serve as the director. Former ESPN producer Bill Graff, who was hired as NFL Network/NFL Films' Executive in Charge of Studio and Remote Production earlier this year, will oversee NFL Network's production team.
Additionally, Solomon Wilcots will serve as the sideline reporter for all three games.
An entire production package will debut on NFL Network for the preseason, including a distinct graphics package and other on-air elements created for the game coverage.
A total of 54 NFL preseason games will be shown on NFL Network. Three will be produced in-house and air live, an additional five games will air live using local broadcast feeds, and the remaining 46 games will be shown on a delayed basis in the hours or days following the conclusion of the game.
NFL Network also will present special live look-in shows dubbed No Huddle on two nights when high concentrations of preseason games are played at the same time. These special "whip around" shows will air on Saturday, Aug. 14 at 7:30 p.m. ET and Friday, Sept. 3 at 7:30 p.m. ET.
Albert's vast play-by-play experience includes games in the NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA and WNBA. Since 1994, Albert has been calling NFL games on Fox and also serves as radio play-by-play man for the New York Rangers.
Fouts, a Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback, will join Albert as color analyst in the NFL Network booth. Fouts' 15-year broadcasting credits include ABC's Monday Night Football and ABC's College Football. He has covered the Super Bowl, NFL Playoffs and the Sugar Bowl.
A former Super Bowl MVP, Davis rounds out NFL Network's announcing team. Davis began his television career as a guest analyst on NFL Network's signature show NFL Total Access where he teamed with host Rich Eisen and analysts Ken Norton Jr. and Seth Joyner to cover events such as Super Bowl XXXVIII, the Pro Bowl and the 2004 NFL Draft.
Wilcots, a former NFL defensive back, will serve as the sideline reporter. Wilcots continues his duties as an analyst on NFL Network's Playbook , a reporter for NFL Total Access' coverage of Monday Night Football, and his continued work as a game analyst on CBS Sports' coverage of the NFL. In addition, Wilcots currently works as a correspondent on CBS' The NFL Today pregame show and is part of CBS' broadcast team for the NCAA men's basketball tournament.
