Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

So with John Madden heading to NBC for next year’s Sunday Night Football broadcast show, who’s going to join him in the booth? Richard Sandomir makes a case for Chris Collinsworth:

A Madden-Collinsworth pairing would be a fascinating opportunity to hear two of the best analysts engage in the ultimate football conversation without a third voice between them (although one might argue that Buck nicely mediated the differing styles of Collinsworth and Aikman).

It’s kind of a default selection, though: The other best candidates are tied up at other networks. Nor is Collinsworth polished enough at play-by-play to be ready for a pairing with Madden. Frankly, I don’t think it’s a good choice: You’d basically have two color guys calling the game. I’d bet NBC finds a second-tier but experienced play-caller and have him do the heavy lifting, all the better to let Madden’s schtick shine through.
