The Best Of The Best: SI Ranks NFL's Top Logos, Announcers As Part Of Book Promotion

SI is promoting the upcoming release of its "Football's Greatest" book in this week's magazine and features several categories that list the best players at certain positions as voted on by fans. It also includes several categories not in the book that were put together by a panel of SI writers and editors. The Raiders were chosen to have the best team logo, and SI's Don Banks writes, "Crossed swords, a helmeted Raider and a badass eye patch -- it evokes the outlaw image the organization has cultivated." NBC's Cris Collinsworth was named the best broadcaster, with his "SNF" partner Al Michaels coming in at No. 3. SI's Jim Trotter writes of Michaels, "The next time you hear him unprepared will be the first. He can take a new partner and sound as if they’ve been working together for decades." Also of note, late Raiders Owner Al Davis tied for ninth as the league's best personality (SI, 10/22 issue).
