Fox is obviously trying to mimic the ESPN College Gameday atmosphere but I just don't think it works at NFL games. I agree though, I thought the FOX Pre Game was weak. They all just seem to goof around for an hour instead presenting information. Jimmy Johnson is ridiculous and Terry Bradshaw thinks he's a stand-up comic. I like Joe Buck but not as a host. He's much better just doing the play-by-play. And I'm glad they decided to get rid of the dots on the scoreboard. That might have been the worst decision in TV history. Whoever signed off on that idea should be fired (if they weren't already). I dig the new CBS package. Yeah, the FOX pre-game was a wicked rip-off of ESPN's College GameDay (Built by the Home Depot, of course lol). It works for ESPN and college football in general because the energy at college games is different than that of an NFL game, IMO. I like the CBS scoreboard graphics - clean, simple, and not a floating scoreblob like on ESPN MNF... I now like CBS's pre-game too. So far, CBS gets a thumbs up early in the season. GOOD JOB CBS! I think they're doing on location outside because they want Joe Buck to be the host and still be able to announce games. So since he was doing the cowboys-jaguars game they had to have the pre-game in jacksonville. I'll use joe bucks own words to describe FOX's pregame, "that is a disgusting act, and its unfortunate that we had that on our air live"
