The 49ers host the Cleveland Browns on Sunday and due to the inter-conference nature of the game (NFC team hosting), the game will air on CBS. For this week's game, the 49ers get the number three CBS crew of Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts. I believe the top two crews are Jim Nantz/Phil Simms and Greg Gumbel/Dan Dierdorf.
Any thoughts on that crew? I was not a fan of Dan Fouts during his Monday Night Football days but I've started to come around a little bit in recent years. I think part of the reason involved moving past this brutal Miller Lite commercial. Fouts did finish with much better career numbers, but Stabler put up some respectable numbers AND won a Super Bowl. Fouts might win the better QB argument, but the Snake wins the ring argument.
This will end up as the 49ers only CBS game this season. The 49ers other AFC home game is against the Steelers and is scheduled for Monday Night Football on December 19. Other than that it is eight games on FOX, with a Thursday NFL Network game on Thanksgiving. For those wondering, the Super Bowl is on NBC this year.
