The NFL Today

Show Summary

CBS pioneered the NFL pregame called The NFL Today, which orginally included Brent Musburger, Phylis George, Jimmy "The Greek" Snyder, Irv Cross and has went on to be a Emmy Award-winning show that has set the standard for many shows to follow. It started in the mid 1960's when the Super Bowl first came to exist, and it has continued on for the next 38 years, until CBS lost their rights to the NFL after the 1993 season to FOX. The NFL Today returned in 1998 with the AFC Package this time, and a cast consisting of Jim Nantz, Mike Ditka, Craig James, Randy Cross, and Jerry Glanville. Over the years, other former players have been a part of the show, including Dan Marino, Deion Sanders, Shannon Sharpe, Boomer Esiason, and the newest member of the show, joining in 2007, former head coach Bill Cowher. To this day it is a valuable resource to NFL fans to keep up with news on the latest NFL games and players and predictions on Sunday's outcomes. Many hosts have past, including Brent, Greg Gumbel, Jim Nantz, and now the modern-day version is hosted by James Brown and features anaylsis from Dan Marino, Shannon Sharpe and Boomer Esiason, who regularly make selections for the day's games on the show. The NFL Today also takes viewers out to their regional NFL game before any other network, with "First on the Field." The show has other segments, including "Football Faceoff" and "Chalk Talk", which were implimented in the 2006 season.moreless

  • Favorite Raiders

    When your so-called sports commentators were naming their favorite and greatest Oakland Raiders not one named Jim Plunkett. The Raiders have won three Super Bowls and two of those wins were led by none other than the Great Jim Plunkett. I guess humbleness is not a trait any or your "sports commentators are fond of. Below is a reminder:

    Quarterback Jim Plunkett won two Super Bowls for the Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders, his final one coming at the age 36 against the Washington Redskins in Super Bowl XVIII. Through 48 Super Bowls, there have been 11 quarterbacks who have won more than one Big Game.

  • Tim Tebow

    Been listiening to all comments this morning which are good. I do recall in the 1990s a couch by the name of Bill Walsh signing a beat up left handed quarterback Steve Young. No one would think he would amount to anything. He set three years behind Joe Montana and learned from a Hall of Fame player and became one himself.
  • Great NFL

    I love the NFL CBS Today , I love the NFL,so I become a nfl jerseys suppliers. if you are interestred in ,come here, you can get cheap but great NFL jerseys.
  • it's alright they are only on for a little bit, and then we get to watch the real event,

    Shannon, sounds like he has food in his mouth when he talks, and Boomer & Marino have the biggest ego's in the world, at least that is how they come off to me. They also are so negative like they could do it better, they aren' in their prime anymore, and all they have going for them is a job like this thinking they are better than everyone. Don't get me wrong Marino, Boomer, & Shannon are probably better than most in the NFL still. Boomer & Marino have been out a while but still might have more talent, but they are there to broadcast, not to root for a team and try to coach every team from their booth.moreless

    I have loved the NFL CBS Today since I was

    A kid at 11 when I first started to love the NFL

    You can I guess think my brother for it

    As I now follow more of the NFL since my

    Brother has a family and that I think having

    James "JB" Brown will be a good edition to the family as well.
