6. Kenny Albert and Daryl Johnston, FOX
This is almost unfair to Albert. If we were doing straight play-by-play rankings, Albert would be in the top five, possibly for multiple sports. Unfortunately, FOX has teamed him with the Daryl Johnston-Tony Siragusa dog-and-pony show.
Even if this were just Albert and Johnston, it would be much more enjoyable — even if Johnston loses the count sometimes, as in Week 10, when he suggested that the Saints, up 31-27 at the time on the Falcons, take a safety to go up by six (a safety would have made it 31-29).
Siragusa does not bring much to the table from his vantage point on the field, often dipping into the tired “body language” reports to gauge a team’s mentality.
