It was announced recently Thursday that Aqib Talib and Gus Johnson are teaming up to call select NFL games this season.
FOX has announced their NFL broadcast crews for 2021 season. Biggest news: Tom Rinaldi joins the No. 1 team of Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and. Erin Andrews. Greg Olsen officially becomes Kevin Burkhardt's partner on the No. 2 crew. Gus Johnson will call select games with Aqib Talib.— Jimmy Traina (@JimmyTraina) August 2, 2021
Johnson is personally one of my favorite commentators. He’s like the anti-Joe Buck, he actually brings energy to calling games! He’s even directly tied to the awakening of my football fandom! Admittedly, many folks have complained in the past about Johnson’s over-the-top style of calling. I’m not one of those critics.
Notably, Aqib Talib was a fan favorite last season as he received glowing reviews from those who caught his games. This could be the start of a beautiful partnership. Greg Olsen is also going to be calling games with Kevin Burkhardt, so we could possibly see them in action as well.
It hasn’t been announced what games announcing teams will be calling yet, but ideally we’ll get to see the dream team of Johnson and Talib call a Texans game this season!
How do you feel about the possibility of Gus Johnson gracing your Sundays this season? Let us know down below!
