CBS Sports announces 2011 NFL announcer pairings

It's almost NFL time, kids. Which means it's also time for the 52nd season of the NFL being broadcast on the CBS Television Network.

And that also means another wonderful season of The NFL Today (the best pregame show on Sundays, and, yes, I'd tell you that even if I didn't work here), anchored as always by the excellent James Brown and featuring Dan Marino, Boomer Esiason, Bill Cowher and Shannon Sharpe.

We'll have more from the announcement/media thing in New York City later, but for now, the important stuff: the mothership's announced the 2011 announcer pairings.

Jim Nantz and Phil Simms take the spot as The NFL on CBS lead announcing team, as usual, followed immediately by Greg Gumbel, who teams again with Dan Dierdorf.

Ian Eagle will be paired with Chargers great Dan Fouts in 2011, and new legend on the block Marv Albert will team up with Rich Gannon to call games.

Kevin Harlan and Solomon Wilcots are paired again this season, while Bill Macatee will team up with Steve Tasker.

Spero Dedes, in his second year, will call games with Steve Beuerlein, while Don Criqui and Randy Cross will pair up as well.

In bonus news, The NFL on CBS will kick off this Friday, August 26 by broadcasting the Colts-Packers preseason game and then air the Patriots-Lions game on Saturday, August 27.

Phil Simms thinks he is on the radio he talks more tthan radio annuncers. My only choice are to turn the game off or mute it!!!
