Was about to post this link myself. Oddly enough this morning one of the random quotes for me was from the thread about the 7th Annual awards, so I checked SI.com and the new one still hadn't been posted. Then a few hours later it was.
I love how picky Dr. Z is and how he notices things I would never ever notice cause I never played football. And of course it's fun to read him ragging on people.
"Dick Enberg and Dan Dierdorf, CBS -- Oh my, you want to know where LaDainian Tomlinson went to college and his high school before that? Ask Dick. But be careful, he'll give you that information about anybody. While the action is going on. He's better than he used to be, though. At least we don't have to hear about the cookies his auntie baked."
Can't stand Randy Cross, so I don't like them being rated so high, Dierdorff/Enberg & Stockton/Johnston are right around the same area, and happen to be the crews I want doing my games when watching CBS or FOX.
And I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I'd rather listen to Al & John during a bad blowout game than Phil Simms and Jim Nantz ever.
Actually, former Bills' QB Dennis Shaw won the Offensive ROTY in 1970, but being the first in 34 years is still really impressive. He was their 2nd round pick that year. Their first round pick? Al "This is A.C., Dammit!" Cowlings.
