  1. I assume I don’t get a lot of AFC South games on my TV in Michigan, or at least that is where I imagine Spero Dedes and Adam Archuleta call their games.

    I mean, I vaguely remember Archuleta as a player but what rock did Spero Dedes crawl out from under? Never heard of that guy in my life. Same for Andrew Catalon.

    Slim pickings for the broadcast booth these days eh.

  2. Listened to her for years doing B1G games. She is very good. Knows her stuff and does the research. Better than most play by play announcers.

  3. I have found her work on ESPN doing college games engaging. She’s better than most of the play-by-play guys on FOX.

    Lofton used to do Panthers preseason games before he got a coaching job. He is solid. Unlike all of the FOX analysts, he doesn’t start every sentence with, “Back when I was a player…”

  4. Given most of the boobs and mental defectives the various networks roll out as broadcast “talent” she can only be an improvement.

  5. Kevin Harlan is the best play by play man at CBS IMO. Yes he shows lots of excitement on non exciting plays but it doesn’t come across as annoying like Gus Johnson is.

    Dedes is a WFAN alum… he did some work for YES as well before getting national gigs. Very familiar name in the New York area.

  7. Bad thing is they have no way of getting any REAL feedback. People won’t NOT watch the game because of her but guarantee they can’t detect “Mute” in the ratings. Why do women have to invade EVERYTHING that men do? I don’t care if they announce, do so in women’s “sports” where women might be watching.

  8. regardless of knowledge and preparedness the number one attribute a play by play caller needs is a enjoyable voice to hear. Sorry Beth but your over emphasized deep voice is brutal.

  9. It’s cool that the first QB in Jaguars history will get to call all of their games this year.

  10. Gross, just gross. Isn’t trolling the lockerrooms checking out the naked athletes enough? Thank goodness for radio broadcasts. Mute, indeed!

  11. Had to put her on such a low interest game, didn’t ya?

    Sure, Tony Romo has no experience of any kind, so he should get the marquee spot. .. .

  12. Dedes is a WFAN alum… he did some work for YES as well before getting national gigs. Very familiar name in the New York area.

    I think he also did the late college games on the west coast for ESPN.

    I just can’t stand Mowins. I can’t stand to listen to her and I won’t watch any of her games. Given that I live in Jacksonville I’m sure we’ll plenty of their games will be called by the “F” team which means Jags fans will have to listen to her now. Sorry, but I just cannot STAND listening to her.

  13. If people can stomach Doc Emrick and call him a legend, then Beth Mowins is at least deserving of her shot.

  14. Not sure if ive heard her call a game before. But she cant be as bad as kenny albert. He is the most annoying voice in my opinion.

  15. Geez, I see the age of Neanderthals is back. Someone call Dr. Richard Leakey. We’ve found more specimens for him to examine.

  16. Mowins is good, knows her stuff. Her nasal intonation isn’t the greatest to listen to, though. Best woman play by play announcer is the one who does MLB. I forget her name but she knows her stuff and has a very pleasant voice.

    Spero Dedes is pretty good, too. He should probably be on a higher team. I agree with the commenter who wrote Joe Buck sucks…He should stick to baseball.

  17. Between this and the national anthem protests, I’ll be sure to use my time off enjoying football!! I’m kidding. I hope there is a lockout and they blow the whole league up and start over. Lower salaries, lower ticket prices, and for once, do something for the fans.

  18. I am having a hard time listening to a person announce the Colt/Browns game that is just reading script and saying what we see with no experience of how to play or the inside part of the game. And the other announcer… please neither one of them have a clue. CBS is famous for having the background noise so loud you have to struggle to hear the announcers anyway and it has always been a distraction and now there are three distractions. Pause, dead air, Pause… producer tell me what to say! Wake up CBS! How can you have such great people and then this??? Sound is off and playing music watching the game.
