Few things scare me like James Brown's spray-on hair. Maybe Tony will help distract...but I doubt it.

"How is it possible that Sterling Sharpe speaks so clearly and thoughtfully, and Shannon sounds like a flat tire doing 75 mph"

all the pre-game shows essentially stink, too much pop culture, no substance, the shows  all look the same. ex-players trying to sound intelligent, a couple  of "insiders" , weather , a jokester, unwatchable.. all of them..

Glad to see Sharpe go.  Suprised about Marino though.  I thought he did a good job and respects the game.  As a side note Marino really respects the passion and dedication of Bills fans, this I know.

But I'll miss Marino's pre-game insight about the team who scores the most points will win.

Not going to miss either one.  The CBS show needs to improve -- the fox guys have it all over them.

Dan will now have more time to spend with his 'other' family. Shannon's tongue is too big for his mouth! Reminds me of Dexter Manley.

By no means is it funny, but it is not that easy to listen to.  I applaud his effort and passion, but I prefer not to watch.  With all the options to get NFL pre game information, it made it easy to change the channel.   This is in the Life is not fair category.  It was for him to make tons of money playing, but not with his impediment.  Imagine how hard it is for regular people without his football ability.  Not everybody is meant to do everything.

I always tune into the Fox pre-game and will flip sometimes during commercials to the CBS one. I am not a fan of CBSs show, fox makes their show fun and they can joke around with each other, while CBSs show just seems too rigid to me.

Having Marino gone might help, although adding Gonzalez I don't think will.

I am glad to see Shannon Sharpe go.  Marino surprises me. I'd rather see Boomer go rather than Marino.

Am I the only one who like CBS pre game?  It's the only one I watched every Sunday.  Fox was way to goofy for me.

i agree, bradshaw seems to try too hard to be the "country bumpkin".. jimmy johnson very predicatble, strahan offers nothing, long is the only one who  is tolerable,

I watch CBS because I primarily follow AFC...I did like it better than Fox

Marino i could understand but Sharp ?? He is a natural born talker , besides it has been proven in the past if you have 2 HOF caliber TE's on a roster the team can be unstoppable !!!

I stopped watching pre-games after Jimmy the Greek left, and anything I want to know I can get on the Internet. Prefer to listen to Bills pregame on radio.
