A couple of days ago, you voted in Hot Clicks' NFL announcers poll
. Here is a summary of the results.
For favorite lead play-by-play announcer, Al Michaels
blew away the competition with 57.39 percent of the vote. It was the most votes anyone received in any category. Jim Nantz
came in second (11.9 percent), while Mike Tirico
(10.52 percent) Brad Nessler
(10.16 percent) and Joe Buck
(10.04) basically tied for the final spot.
For favorite lead analyst
, Cris Collinsworth
(27 percent) beat out Troy Aikman
(22.27 percent) and Jon Gruden
(18.87 percent) followed by Mike Mayock
(10.85 percent), Phil Simms
(10.74) and Ron Jaworski
For favorite secondary play-by-play man
, Greg Gumbel
(21.05 percent) and Marv Albert
(19.52 percent) took lead honors with Kevin Harlan
(13.27 percent) finishing third. In what I consider an upset and a joke, Dick Stockton
(13.26 percent) beat Ian Eagle
Favorite secondary analyst
produced the most stunning results in my opinion based on what I see on Twitter each Sunday. Daryl
won the category (23.78 percent) while Dan Fouts
(18.9 percent) and Dan Dierdorf
(14.94 percent) rounded out the top three. Sadly, 10.69 percent of Hot Clicks Nation voted for Tony Siragusa
The category that produced the most interesting and tightest results was favorite pregame show host
. The men who finished 1-2 couldn't have more opposite personalities as Bob
("Don't you dare celebrate a TD") Costas
(25.5 percent) narrowly edged out Chris Berman
(24.92 percent). James Brown
was right there with them at 23.8 percent.
Lastly, Terry Bradshaw
(22.68 percent) took favorite pregame show analyst
honors while Howie Long
(18.28 percent) and Tony Dungy
(16.44) rounded out the top three.
Since Al Michaels had the biggest win and produced a blowout like no other, I feel like we should honor him in some way. So, here is his greatest television moment
. And, no, it's not the Miracle on Ice call.
