Here's Hoping Gus is not Voice of Browns - AGAIN

If it seems like Gus Johnson has been the voice of the Browns the last nine years, that would be because he has - and that is not a good thing if you are a Cleveland Fan. Nothing against Gus, but if he does your game, your team stinks and no one else outside of your collection of degenerate buddies around town is watching the game. For what it is worth, I think Johnson does a solid job with the NCAA tourney, and I really dont mind him doing NFL, but from a national perspective as far as CBS is concerned, he is one ring above the bottom. Johnson was funny about the pecking order reality on the Really Big Show last year when he was joking about it, calling himself a Browns Beat Reporter, but hopefully by week 10 - 11 - and 12 all we hear is Phil Simms...for some reason that is a good thing. I got the following from Awful Announcing, as it related to CBS' Announcer Hierarchy announced earlier this week:
Per Awful Announcing,
How CBS rates them is as follows:

1. Jim Nantz and Phil Simms
2. Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf
3. Dick Enberg and Randy Cross or Dan Fouts
4. Kevin Harlan and Rich Gannon
5. Ian Eagle and Solomon Wilcots
6. Gus Johnson and Steve Tasker
7. Don Criqui, Bill Macatee and Steve Beuerlein or Dan Fouts

So, if its Gus Johnson and the former Buffalo Bills Special Teams Specialist - Steve Tasker - in week 14...start talking Brady Quinn and the draft because that means that fat chick is singing.
