The Griddys: Honoring the best in NFL broadcasting

The NFL on television brought us lots of new and unusual this season:

Play-By-Play

Honorable mention: CBS’ Ian Eagle, NFL Network’s Brad Nessler, Fox’s Kenny Albert and Thom Brennaman.

Game analysts

Honorable mention: Worthy of consideration: CBS’ Rich Gannon, Dan Dierdorf and Dan Fouts and Fox’s Troy Aikman and Brian Billick.

Studio hosts

4. Curt Menefee / Fox — Did a better job maintaining order on the set than past years and also displayed more personality. And Menefee isn’t afraid to criticize athletes, such as telling Cam Newton he was wrong to call a female reporter “sweetheart.”

Studio analysts

Honorable mention: Fox’s Jimmy Johnson and Howie Long are always in the medal discussion.

Reporters

Honorable mention: Worthy of consideration: CBS’ Jason LaCanfora; and NBC’s Peter King and Mike Florio, who have the unfortunate disadvantage of appearing seven to nine hours after their competition. King had this eye-opening tip: At least seven NFL players turned in their guns after Jovan Belcher’s murder/suicide because they don’t “trust themselves.”
