GameDay trumps NFL shows
I’m never home on Sunday mornings. Always at Lakeside Church of God. There or on the road, trying to get home.
But last Sunday, I flew in from Colorado and got home around 11:15, so I caught the final 45 minutes or so of FOX’s NFL pregame show.
That’s the famous one, with Terry Bradshaw and Howie Long and Jimmy Johnson and Michael Strahan.
And here’s my take: Not nearly as entertaining as ESPN’s GameDay crew.
GameDay will be in Norman on Saturday for the OU-Texas Tech game, and therein lies part of its charm. GameDay’s roving set, usually to the best game of the day, has created a cult following and lures hundreds or thousands of fans to its show.
But even without the live aspect, GameDay is better than NFL Today. The FOX show has too many voices; too much yelling over each other. Too much splitting of the microphone.
Example: Near the end of the show, GameDay goes through a bunch of games for predictions. Each panelist — there’s only three; Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit and host Chris Fowler — goes through the game with insight and opinion.
