Rest easy, you Joe Buck fans. The master of the subdued will remain paired with Troy Aikman as the No. 1 Fox broadcast team for NFL football this season. Moreover, the No. 2 and No. 3 teams — Kenny Albert/Daryl Johnston/Tony Siragusa and Thom Brennaman/Brian Billick — remain intact, as well. But the remaining Fox pairings will be tossed up this year, with John Lynch and Jim Mora receiving promotions.
Lynch, the former All-Pro safety for the Bucs and Broncos who called games last year with play-by-play announcer Ron Pitts, moves up to Fox’s fourth on-air team to work with announcer Dick Stockton. Analyst Tim Ryan, who worked with Sam Rosen last season, will team with Chris Myers. Mora, a part-time analyst last year, moves up to become a full-timer alongside Pitts. And rookie analyst Chad Pennington, who is rehabbing an offseason injury and hoping to return to the NFL, will call games with Rosen.
