I hate Mike Mayock. He's a huge bragger. Claims he watches film on every single play of every single player. He knows a lot about guys, but he also pretends to know a lot more than he really does. He talks out of his ass a lot of times just like Greg Cosell.
We should classify play-by-play vs. color commentators:
Al Michaels: The best and has been for sometime
Mike Tirico: Really smooth, rarely over the top
Jim Nantz: Just screams AFC to me. It feels like he and Sims are always doing Patriots or Broncos games. Doesn't move the needle for me personally.
Dick Stockton: Old
Joe Buck: Tend to agree with you all, rather smug and injects way too much opinion for a play-by-play guy
Kevin Burkhardt: I like him and he seems to be on the rise. Does a nice job with John Lynch
Jon Gruden: I know he gets a lot of grief, but he talks x's and o's better than anyone and he seems to reminisce about his SF assistant days when he does our games
Collinsworth: I go back and forth. He's smooth and always see's key parts of plays, but can be arrogant
Daryl Johnston: I like him. Never get's over excited and provides nice analysis
Phil Simms: Doesn't do it for me: Talks a little slow and nearly all of his commentary ties back to the QB
Troy Aikman: I think he's solid. Always seems to focus on the negative of plays. Is actually somewhat critical of Dallas more often than not, which I love
Mike Mayock: Really like him and he obviously watches a ton of film. Neat to get the draft point of view
John Lynch: I'm really warming up to him. Very smooth, good insight.
