    No one, and I mean no one, is worse than Brent Musberger. :brickwall

    Is Bob Costas going to be announcing the game or is he going to do the pregame show? I hope it's the pre-game show since I can't stand him. If he's doing the actual play-by-play or color commentary, then I guess I'll have to suffer.

    Musberger was at his finest during the Bourbon Bowl.

    I don't think you will be able to identify a team's weaknesses based on their first preseason game. But I will take anything at this point! Bring it on!

    I just want to see the new offense and defense. I want to see the differences between Kubiak and Capers. Does anyone know how many series or quarters the first teamers usually play in the first preseason game?

    He's the best play-by-play man in the business. Why wouldn't you want him doing the game? He knows the players on each team, what down it is, and what yard line they're on... Have you any idea how rare that is?

    I don't like him much, but I have to disagree with you. The worst is that one guy that totally flipped out when Randy Moss faked a moon to the crowd. I believe he was like "that is a vial act"...."I am disgusted"..."I'm sorry you all at hom had to see that."

    Big deal...it would have been different if Moss actually pulled down his pants, but he didn't.

    That would be Joe Buck I beleive. I don't think he should've commented as much on it as he did, but it was a stupid thing to do.:cool:

    1st quarter, some into the 2nd. I believe the 2nd and 3rd preseason games, they play later into the game (3rd quarter or so). The 4th preseason game tends to be 1st team for a series, possibly 2 then backups the rest of the game.

    It is a good time to see a teams depth.
