I've never had a big problem with Joey T. myself, he would be an upgrade over S&S.

On a side note does Sonny still hate Theismann's guts? Would be interesting if JT was hired to replace Huff.

That's what the home teams wants, home town announcers that are pulling for their team. If fans want no rooting interest broadcasters just listen to the national guys.

I dont think Sam is very good but I think Sonny has some decent insights because he talks to a lot of players.

Personally, I'd like to see Doc Walker and maybe --big maybe-- BMitch give it a shot. But Joey T. would do a good job for sure.

I think we could do much better than MP and JT. Theismann is just so painful to listen to. Talk about someone who loves to hear themselves talk. On top of that he doesn't provide much insight.

I would keep Larry Michael and Sonny and replace Sam Huff with Doc Walker.

I think the dynamic the Skins are looking for in the booth is an announcer, offense guy and defense guy. Sam's replacement would IMO have to be a defense guy. Maybe Darryl Green.

Re: Larry, Sonny, and Sam- the radio trio must go

If the Skins look to make a change in the radio booth I for one would greatly prefer that they use a "two-man booth" and not a "three-man booth".

Sonny is still good with his analysis; Sam and Larry are just awful - - and have been awful for at least the last 5 years.

Hey, I have an idea. Hire Vinny Cerrato to do the color commentary. He has experience doing radio...

I heard Darryl do the sideline reporting for us one year (in the preseason) and from what I remember, he wasn't that good. Smootsmack will probably agree

What about Ken Harvey?

Re: Larry, Sonny, and Sam- the radio trio must go

Sonny_J is a keeper, nobody really understands the Redskins Organization better.
Sam Huff, while a cherished Alum, has more negatives than positives. It would be great to have Joe Bugel or Richie Petibone try a guest appearance with Sonny - it would be entertaining.
Larry Michael is no Frank Herzog when it comes to play-by-play.

Don't know what he knows about defense, but he could at least spin some sick beats

A sample of the genius of this booth:

D.C. Sports Bog - Sonny, Sam and the missed kicks

There is an app for the iPAD (iRadio or something like that) that allows you to listen to Sonny and Sam and to slow down their broadcast to match it with HD cable. It works great until the first radio commercial. For some dumb reason everytime Sonny and Sam go to commercial they change their timing. Sometimes faster sometimes slower, but you have to resynch. If their crack technical team wouldn't do this we could easily "turn down the TV and watch the game and listen to Sonny and Sam". I still think they are better than many of the announcers we get on TV for the games.
