Zach as a play by play guy? I just don't see it. He's the least qualified candidate of all of the finalists. Being a color analyst on live broadcast is extremely difficult. The Jim Nance, Al Michael's, Vin Scully & Dick Enberg's of the world made it appear easy. Jim Henderson spoiled me with his pinpoint accuracy & delivery .

I think this job either goes to Hoss or Joel Myers (does exceptional work with the Pels play by play).

Mike Hoss would be a solid choice...

Joel Myers is awful; often misidentifies regular roster members in pre-season games...

JP, Joel is hardly awful. Was solid when briefly covering the Lakers, UCLA basketball & the Olympic Nationals basketball team.

He's far from awful.

I don't know if Zach is as qualified as the others but he would have my vote.

Personally I don't think Joel Myers' voice is right for football. He has a sort of sing-song monotone cadence that kinda puts me to sleep after a while. But that's just me. I could deal with Mike Hoss or Sean Kelly although I've never actually heard Hoss do play-by-play. But please not Myers. He has an identity with doing the Pelicans games and that should stay there.

Have you seen the SAINTS' preseason games? Myers was misidentifying many of our regularly roster-ed players...

When he dared venturing into commentary with Stinch, it was obvious Myers put no prior time in preparation even if it is a PreSeason game...

And PreSeason games actually are harder because of the expanded rosters; but the mistakes mentioned are touching on regular season game issues...

He just talks like he's trying to get the back-end of a beer down - No Thank You...
