Announcers for Sunday vs AZ
Tue Dec 04, 2012 1:18 pm
  • According to Mike Sando we're getting Chris Myers and Tim Ryan (AKA 80's Beard) for Sunday's game:
    "Chris Myers, Tim Ryan and Jamie Maggio get the call for Cardinals-Seahawks in Week 14. Fox's No. 5 crew."

    I'm not even sure if this warrants creating a new thread, but does anyone else find it a little odd that we've gotten this crew so many times? I'm not really complaining, I actually find myself agreeing with Ryan a lot of the time. I just can't remember any time in recent history we've gotten the same announcers this many times in a season.

    Or maybe this is just a non-story and I'm looking for ways to pass the time until Sunday.

  • If anyone's curious:
    --They've announced 5 of our games so far, and this Sunday will be #6.

    --No other crew has announced for us more than once this season.

    --This Sunday will be the third week in a row for announcing our games.

    Yeah, I did notice they took our side a few times when the refs screwed us over.

    And just to be clear here, I'm not complaining, just pointing out an anomaly.

  • i saw on NFLN that that lady announcer that was doing the running interview with Pete will be at the game
    and they were pointing out that when she has attended our games he has had his best performances (Min, Det, Chi I think)

    the power of The Tanzania is strong in her.

  • I love that crew, they do a good job. No slants or bias, Ryan seems to be especially even keeled. Myers doesn't overwhelm the mic and Maggio is fun to look at. I'd take them every week.

  • This is why I've taken to calling them the Seahawks crew in the NFL viewing map thread each week. They really do a decent and fair job of broadcasting the games. They don't seem to have any agenda for either side which is very refreshing.

  • I like it, they are very familiar with our team and probably inform the opposing team's fans more accurately then if we got a bunch of different announcers. That is, rather then just RW good, beastmode, tall corners we get talk about back ups and reviews of KJ and Red whom are relatively unknown.

    Yup. It's funny if you listen to them, they seem to be getting to know all our players and even are seeming to root for them at times. They call out the refs too. They are basically becoming the personal announcers for all Seahawk games!

  • As some of us posted last week, Myers and Ryan seem to be the official crew covering our games. Anyway, I enjoy listening to their call of our games. Also, Ryan exhibits a high level of knowledge about the Seahawks on his Movin' the Chains show on XM, where he often refers to his game coverage when he talks about our team.

  • Easier on the crew as they already studied the one team....

    Wonder if Fox does this somewhat on purpose the more a team does one of the teams over again the easier it would be for them and they should sound better.

  • Every week Ryan has Pete Carroll on his radio show with Pat Kirwan. Ryan has ties to the Niners, he calls their pre-season so he seems to know the NFC west teams pretty well. Plus the USC alum thing. I like these guys best out of all Fox crews.
    I like this crew because they seem to have the sideline microphones turned up so you can hear a lot of the on field chatter. I don't know if that is a Fox vs CBS thing, or each crew is different.

    Actually it all makes sense now. He played at USC in 1989, meaning that he first gained his ability to grow beards at some time during the 1980s. Miami Vice aired from 1984 to 1989.

    They hated these two guys on the Bears boards. Hated them and everything they said during the game. Ryan played for the Bears for three years, and he posted great sack numbers in college, but did very little for the Bears. The antipathy for him goes beyond him favoring the Hawks a bit in his broadcast.

    I edited, see above. Plus, he had 4.5 sacks and 5 tackles in 4 seasons. Then a back issue ended his career. Not good for a 3rd rounder.
