Peyton Manning prefers Troy Aikman's analysis to Joe Buck's
At least my fellow New York media critics and I won't have Chip Caray to kick around anymore now.
On to Joe Buck! Speaking of which, Peyton Manning had some interesting things to say (roughly 10 minutes in on the bottom video) about Fox's lead baseball and football voice during NBC's "Football Night in America" show Sunday night, which you missed because you were watching the Yankees.
Here is Peyton telling Bob Costas about watching Eli and the Giants play:
"I get so into it. I get so worked up. I remember last year they were playing Philly, or maybe it was two years ago. They beat them and he drove them down there late and I remember standing on top of the bed, yelling at Toomer or one of his receivers because they ran a wrong route, and Joe Buck is just ripping Eli, just because that's what he seems to enjoy doing.
"So I'm yelling at Joe Buck, 'Just call the play-by-play, Joe! Let Aikman do the commentary.' I said to myself, 'Peyton, what are you doing? Why are you on top of the bed yelling at the TV?' I've got a game here in four hours against New England or something . . . But you know what, I love watching him play. That's the first thing I do after a game when I get to the locker room. I'm asking for the Giants score."
