SBD/Closing Bell

Fox' Brennaman, Billick Replace Albert, Johnston For Divisional Game

Fox' Thom Brennaman and Brian Billick will call one of the net's NFC divisional playoff games next weekend, "not the network's usual No. 2 team of Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston and Tony Siragusa." Fox Sports VP/Communications Dan Bell said, "We thought both broadcast teams had very strong years and decided to give Thom and Brian the opportunity to call a playoff game this season" (NEWSDAY.com, 1/4).

The San Diego Union-Tribune's Jay Posner wrote on his Twitter feed, "Good TV news ... Now CBS needs to do same thing: Promote Eagle/Fouts and demote Gumbel/Dierdorf. Sadly, that won't happen." SI.com's Jimmy Traina: "Late xmas gift."
