Meet the Announcers for Super Bowl 51

 

Three networks CBS, Fox, and NBC rotate broadcasting the Super Bowl.  The NFL contract runs thru the 2023 Super Bowl.  This year Fox is televising the game.  Wess Moore joins us live from Houston with more from the fox broadcasting crew.
 
Super Bowl Sunday is much than the game itself.  Fox has a four and a half hour pregame show.  They're expecting 150 million people to watch.  I asked Curt Menefee if the crew felt any extra pressure.
 
"I don't want to sound like bill bilicheck and the patriots but just do your job.  If you go out and do what got you to this point then you'll continue to be successful.  I don't feel any pressure and i don't think we take it as a pressure filled situation."
 
The Fox crew includes a lot of former players.  Howie Long, Chris Carter, Shannon Sharpe to name a few.  One former defensive player hopes the defenses shine Sunday.
 
"I want to see a good defensive matchup.  Call me biased but i'm a defensive guy so i like to see good matchups.  I don't like to see a game that's 47-49.  I don't like shootouts.  I like low scoring good defensive games."
 
So four days before the big game, who are these broadcasters giving a thumbs up to.
 
"I'd be willing to stand on the table and say atlanta right now but i tell you what.  I don't know how you bet against tom brady.  I can't bring myself to say that."
 
"I think bill billicheck is the greatest coach to coach in the league.  I think tom brady is the greatest quarterback to play in the league.  I think if you look at the records, it backs it up."
 
No quarterback has ever started more Super Bowls than Tom Brady. This is his seventh.  He's 4-2 in the first six.  A win Sunday.. and brady will have more Super Bowl wins than any other quarterback in NFL history.
