Fox insists it does not have an NFL depth chart behind Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, but it was difficult not to notice when Kevin Burkhardt appeared fourth among play-by-play men on its list ofF 2013 announcing teams following Buck, Kenny Albert and Thom Brennaman – and ahead of veteran Dick Stockton.

Pretty good for a rookie well known around here as SNY’s Mets reporter but not well established nationally.

Fox further demonstrated its confidence in Burkhardt by assigning him to the intriguing Buccaneers at Jets opener, and by teaming him with analyst John Lynch and reporter Erin Andrews, both important stars in the Fox firmament.
