I am so sick of getting either Troy Aikman or Daryl Johnston as our game color commentators. It’s bad enough that for years we had to listen to Michael Irvin on ESPN, and then Emmitt Smith and now Keyshawn Johnson. You can’t get away from them.
The former Skins are a lot better on the air — so much more intelligent — whether it’s Mark May or Trevor Matich for college football, or Rick “Doc” Walker or Brian Mitchell on the radio about the Redskins. Jim Lachey does Ohio State broadcasts. I would imagine he’s pretty good. Joe Theismann was a great color commentator on NFL games. Of course, Sonny Jurgensen and Sam Huff are great on the local radio broadcasts.
The fact is the Skins have been average for a long time so we always get the average announcers like Aikman and Johnson. To prevent this the Skins will have to start playing a lot better.
