    Aikman is one of the best in the business.

    Count me amongst those that would like less analysis than these two feel compelled to offer. Buck needs to be reminded that he's there for PBP, not color.

    Buck to me also seems to delight in perpetuating the current media driven criticism du jour when the opportunity presents itself.

    He's probably the most overrated human being of my lifetime.

    I don't think he's a Cowboys hater like some seem to think he is. I just think he's as boring as watching paint dry. He talks in monotone and has zero emotion.

    i think billick is great.

    albert ,moose and goose...probably my favorite announcers.

    john lynch is great as well.

    troy is good aside from his desire to not sound as a cowboys fan....but you can hear his voice change when we make a big play...the love is still there.

    i don't like buck.

    Yep, Troy makes me use the mute button.......TV announcers really aren't needed as long as the referee turns on his mike to expian the penalties....

    Billick is underrated and the best color guy, imo.

    Al Michaels has been my favorite PBP announcer for a long time.

    Huh? Troy is perhaps the most respected, beloved Cowboy ever. Discarded? if you mean he got tossed quickly into the hall of fame and into the deepest, most treasured place in Cowboy fan's hearts forever...then...YUP!

    You sound sooooo bitter...

    Troy is simply the most knowledgeable and insightful color guy in the game. It's little wonder the #1 network gives him the #1 job.

    Troy is ok, but I do agree that he has a tendency to overcompensate in the "unbiase" department when he is doing Cowboys games.

    Oh, and if Troy says he really likes a rookie player? Duck! Remember David Alan LaFleur and Chad Hutchinson? Just to name two.

    anybody who calls Aikman 'overrated' - never had the PLEASURE of seeing Troy drive the ball to a receiver on an intermediate sideline route.

    If the receiver didn't get their hands up in time... the ball HAD to have left about a 2 to 3 inch-deep dent in their body.

    That boy could fire some lasers. ... just sayin'. ;)

    The late 80's, early 90's may not be the toughest era in NFL history. That's arguable. But what is not arguable is that era could have been the absolutel best.

    This era may have had the most dominant players at their positions EVER. Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Emmitt Smith, Lawrence Taylor, John Elway, Barry Sanders, Reggie White, Bruce Smith, Anthony Munoz, Larry Allen, Bruce Matthews, Dan Marino, Ronnie Lott, Deion Sanders, Rod Woodson, Walter Payton, Jerome Brown, Junior Seau, etc.

    And it was deep in greatness, the list of guys just a tick below is endless: Brett Favre, Steve Young, Troy Aikman, Warren Moon, Mike Irvin, Steve Largent, Sterling Sharpe, Tim Brown, Andre Reed, Art Monk, Henry Ellard, Chris Carter, Steve Atwater, Derrick Thomas, Andre Tippett, Kevin Greene, Greg Lloyd, Rickey Jackson, Charles Haley, Mike Singletary, Harry Carson, Pat Swilling, Tim Harris, Karl Mecklenberg, Chris Spielman, Hardy Nickerson, Cornelius Bennett, Wilbur Marshall, John Offerdahl, Sam Mills, Joey Browner, Dennis Smith, Deron Cherry, Darren Woodson, Carnell Lake, LeRoy Butler, Tim McDonald, Leslie O'Neal, Neil Smith, John Randle, Howie Long, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy, Richard Dent ....


    And that is just the tip of the iceberg. I just went thru the a couple of positions and I am sure I missed a bunch with that.
