Did he step down or was he let go? Maybe his job with NFL network was tired of him not being there during the season because he had to travel to do the Niner games. Tim Ryan sucks though! Guy couldn't cut it on Fox as a TV analyst why would he be good as a radio analyst?

This move has likely been in ED's plans since he got that job at the NFL Network. Can't be fun having to go back and forth from LA to SF every week especially when you have to be up at 3am for work.
ED was great,Tim....xtra meh
Pretty sure Davis has bigger plans in mind.
Serious downgrade here. Ryan is so vanilla, boring, and cautious. He doesn't add near the excitement that ED does, nor is he as eloquent.
Tim Ryan??? Don't listen to much of any games on radio anyway, and Davis wasn't that great...but Tim Ryan?

He ruined that call
Tim Ryan is great! I love when he does the preseason games and his show on NFL Radio is the best.
