Fox Sports’ top NFL announcing team of Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen join the pod this week to discuss the upcoming season when they will call the Super Bowl for the first time. Andrew Marchand and John Ourand ask about the long off-season process to become Fox’s top NFL broadcasting team. Burkhardt and Olsen also address Tom Brady, who is scheduled to replace Olsen when he stops playing football. Other topics include their New Jersey roots, where Burkhardt called Olsen’s high-school games; Burkhardt’s “first pitch” at Citi Field; and Burkhardt’s role on WFAN 20 years ago.
Marchand and Ourand also discuss the NFL’s upcoming season, from Amazon’s debut and the Manningcast to NBC’s Sunday Night Football’s expected performance. The two opine on what the expansion of the College Football Playoff means to ESPN, Fox and Amazon.
