Gruden, he of the meaningless word salad.
 
2013-12-31 01:10:38 PM  
Buck.
 
2013-12-31 01:16:55 PM  
Verne Lundquist is my favorite. Shame he only announces college football.
 
2013-12-31 01:21:20 PM  
At least twice a game that Buck has "announced" he should be taken out of the booth and beaten with a stick by a lucky fan drawn by seat number at the beginning and halftime. Albert should just not be on any form of broadcast.
 
2013-12-31 01:23:29 PM  
Buck, by a wide margin.  I'm pretty sure he's never played any sports, because otherwise you could never be this bad.
 
2013-12-31 01:26:07 PM  
Buck.  For the love of God, Joe Buck is terrible!

HawgWild: Verne Lundquist is my favorite. Shame he only announces college football.


Verne has gone blind. Or something. He gets downs wrong, yards wrong, players' names wrong. Recently he got worked up over a replay like it was live action. It's time, Verne.

Joe Buck.  I mean, what the hell happened there?  It's staggering just how far that apple fell from the tree...

Mr. Fuzzypaws: Buck.


Marcus Aurelius: Buck, by a wide margin.  I'm pretty sure he's never played any sports, because otherwise you could never be this bad.


ManateeGag: Buck.  For the love of God, Joe Buck is terrible!


FTFA: "It came as no shock that Buck is one of the best in the business, with a paltry three infractions over two games. "

They did not use my judging criteria, obviously.  I look for little things.  Like understanding when an NFL runner is down, for example.
 
2013-12-31 01:48:50 PM  
It might just be that I'm a Seahawk fan and we've had to endure them at least a half-dozen times in each of the last 2 seasons, but Chris "I can't read numbers" Matthews and Tim "Just for MenTM" Ryan annoy the sh*t out of me.
 
2013-12-31 02:05:24 PM  
Joe Buck.

Is the worst.

Announcer.

Exciting thread.
 
2013-12-31 02:06:49 PM  
Kenny Albert is the absolute worst.
 
2013-12-31 02:11:47 PM  
Solomon Wilcots needs lessons on pronouncing words in the English language...He mangles so many, its hard to listen to him at all...
 
2013-12-31 02:14:42 PM  
Summerall / Madden for the all time worst combo.
 
2013-12-31 02:25:14 PM  
I find Joe Buck incredibly annoying, but I can't say he makes a lot of factual errors or things like that.
 
2013-12-31 02:34:17 PM  
Collinsworth seems to pick the worst times to try to parse the replay system and rules. They show the play repeatedly from various angles during the review and he is wrong 75% of the time.

"You can see the ball move JUST A LITTLE BIT there at the end - no catch."

"The ruling of a completed pass on the field is confirmed."
 
2013-12-31 02:46:26 PM  
Collinsworth would be bearable if he stopped saying "pash rush."
 
2013-12-31 02:50:30 PM  

Nabb1: I find Joe Buck incredibly annoying, but I can't say he makes a lot of factual errors or things like that.


That's because, he just, says what he just saw.  Several, seconds ago.

With, halting.  Tempo.

/you read this in his voice

2013-12-31 03:07:07 PM  
The ones that yell all the time.
LOUD LOUD LOUD
 
2013-12-31 03:31:36 PM  
Good to see Dierdorf made #1.  The worst color guy this side of Billy Packer.
 
2013-12-31 03:35:17 PM  
Tim McCarver. I don't care if he never did a football game. He sucked so bad it transcended individual sports
 
2013-12-31 03:35:29 PM  
Collinsworth & Buck are not my favorites.
 
2013-12-31 03:36:58 PM  
John Madden
 
2013-12-31 03:37:15 PM  
Mike Tirico/Jon Gruden (ESPN): 38

I loved hearing about the article a week or two ago that identified the worst announcers by number of mistakes. Tony Siragusa came in 4th despite not being on the air NEARLY as much as the PbP and Color announcers.
 
2013-12-31 03:38:50 PM  

Irving Maimway: Summerall / Madden for the all time worst combo.


^ YES! ^
 
2013-12-31 03:43:05 PM  
Pam Ward? Ah, current NFL announcers, nevermind.
 
2013-12-31 03:44:02 PM  
Phil Simms makes me want to jab my eardrums out with ice picks.
He is the worst and it really isn't close.
 
2013-12-31 03:49:59 PM  
Buck-Aikman during a Packer game

like running nails on a chalkboard while humping a moose.

I only made it one quarter during the Packers-bears game before I muted them and put on the radio.

Are they suggesting that Joe Buck is the Tony Romo of announcers?

throws a 'verbal interception' at the most inopportune times

HawgWild: Kenny Albert is the absolute worst.


Well, he at least got a fine sense of fashion from his dad.
 
2013-12-31 03:55:22 PM  
For one of the most sensational plays ever, in typical Buck monotone: "Airs it out down the field. It is caught by Tyree."

FTFA Dierdorf, (is) the statistically worst commentator in the NFL.

This is as expected.
 
2013-12-31 03:56:25 PM  
I like Joe Buck!

Fark all you heathens who like Colinsworth and Aikman.
 
2013-12-31 03:56:57 PM  
Jagoff still owes me a pair of shoes.

Contrabulous Flabtraption: For one of the most sensational plays ever, in typical Buck monotone: "Airs it out down the field. It is caught by Tyree."


And he's actually excited by football. You should hear him do baseball; he's one small step away from being Skip Caray-level comatose inducing.
 
2013-12-31 03:58:42 PM  
Not a big Buck fan, but I don't think he's the worst. I think it's weird how he stares down Aikman for what seems like minutes at a time when the camera goes to the booth.

My favorite team is Collie/Michaels, so I'm not terribly surprised to see they scored highly.

Yeah, Dierdorf and Nantz really annoy me. Hate to say it, but I think Madden is one of the most annoying of all time (OF ALL TIME).

Joe Buck just constantly screws up on basic terms, both in football and baseball.

Modern football announcers, truly a sight to behold. Men beaten. The once great champs, now, a study in moppishness. No longer the victory hungry stallions we've listened to so many times before, but pathetic, washed up, aged boner pill salesmen.

I relish the honor.

Dear God has everyone forgotten about Joe Theismann, who once said "How come no one ever calls a time out to ice the punter?"
 
2013-12-31 04:09:27 PM  
I'm really glad the Seahawks were good enough last year that we never saw Ron Pitts or Kenny Albert in our booth this season. As annoyed as I got with Mathews and Ryan, they are worlds better than either of those guys.
 
2013-12-31 04:12:44 PM  
Just go on over to @philsimmsquotes for his awe inspiring resumé
 
2013-12-31 04:13:06 PM  
The Saints' Jim Henderson - simply the best.
