    Dick is 76 and Bob is 74. Donald Trump is 73 and Joe Biden is 76. Seventy is the new fifty...

    Griese led the Dolphins to three consecutive Super Bowl appearances, including two Super Bowl victories

    All that really matters, he can walk away when he wants to.

    Griese isn't near the color guy he was when he and Keith Jackson were the #1 college football announcing team. Yeah, I know, that was a long time ago. But, still, he's Bob Griese. He can hang around as long as he wants.

    Griese can go full Harry Caray for all I care, the man should ALWAYS have a job with the Fins. (As a side note, I actually enjoy listening to him.)

    I have a soft spot for Bob as an announcer. Only because he’s a legend.

    Stockton did national broadcasts - when did he take a job only doing Miami games? Or do I have that wrong?

    You know I thought that at first but Bob took a lot of hits before Shula got here and maybe it's a medical condition

    Listening to Griese speak had me genuinely worried about him.

    He was struggling to pronounce words and make a coherent statement.

    I thought Griese was right. Preston Wilson made a great catch.

    It's painful to listen to, especially when you remember how good they used to be. It's sad for me to watch and I don't get why they let guys who are struggling to keep their heads straight or are half in the bag wallow away for everyone to see. I get that Bob Griese is a legend and all that ... I don't like seeing the progression of him losing his mind.

    Yeah I know it's preseason and who cares but I'd rather watch these next 3 games with the sound on ... Dolphins preseason games are the only games I've ever muted.

    i actually like the commentators. They are old but they are lively. They do get a bunch of stuff wrong occasionally but I prefer that to some young guys with no passion for the game.

    These guys have lived through some ****. They were even ribbing JT. Not a lot of guys could do that and get away with it.

    I listen to ALL the games rather than watch, unless I'm AT the game.
    I like the broadcast team.

    Yea, its terrible. They're embarrassing themselves at this point. The Garfinkel thing was cringey too. It was like Terrell Owens "Thats my quarterback!" rant.
