not a fan of Collinsworth either, but I will wait to hear them in some vids before I pass judgment.

These guys are knowledgable, but annoying at times. All that being said will they actually be used in a proper manner or will we get the same old canned crap lines?

Hopefully someone in charge over there has seen how great SECA does with their play by play for The Show and implements it here in Madden. Otherwise who cares who it is, as it will get old quick. Anything is better than the radio guy, so an improvement to be sure.

collinsworth = puke. I would rather have Madden giving the same old same old sayings.

No complaints here..

Great news. The commentary can't be recycled from last year because there is no commentary so I am excited about that. Plus, I can see these guys actually spending time recording their lines, unlike Joe Morgan.

Hey, it could be worse. We could have been stuck with the arrogrant *** that is Joe Buck. I am not a fan of Collinsworth either though.
