When fans tune into NBC's Thanksgiving night broadcast of the Falcons-Saints game Womens Alex Anzalone Jersey , they might do a double take.Rather than seeing Mike Tirico, Tony Dungy and Rodney Harrison in the studio for the pregame and halftime programs, those three will be calling the game.It's nothing new for Tirico, who does play-by-play on Notre Dame games for NBC, spent years as the main voice on ESPN's Monday night games, and has been working nationally televised contests on holidays since 2002.Dungy has worked in the booth before, too, including with Tirico. For Harrison, though, this is a first-time experience."This is definitely unfamiliar territory for me," says Harrison Womens Terron Armstead Jersey , who played 15 pro seasons at safety and won two Super Bowls. "I'm trying to figure what I want to talk about, how I want to focus on the offense or the defense. Mike tells me just to talk about what you see, that my being on the field and in the locker room as a player, just talk about what you feel like you want to talk about and have fun."I am not going to try to be Cris Collinsworth or Troy Aikman. I will trust my instincts."There's one thing Harrison definitely knows he won't do."One of the things I am focusing, there are many announcers who think they have to talk about every single thing they see on every single play," he says. "That's one of the things that really irks me when I watch a game. I promise I will not be that guy. There will be no one saying, 'Shut the hell up Rodney, I am tired of listening to you.' That will not happen."Dungy laughs when the Harrison remark is relayed. The Hall of Fame coach, like Harrison, is not one to pull his punches, but he also knows he can't be wailing away verbally.What Dungy and Harrison can bring to the game is something not delivered by most NFL broadcasts: the perspective of the defense. So their critiques figure to be refreshing when you consider how many analysts in booths on the networks are former quarterbacks."I think Rodney really will give some insight they do not really get elsewhere http://www.neworleanssaintsteamonline.com/josh-leribeus-jersey ," Dungy says. "Especially in a game like this, which will be so much of an aerial attack and passing. So, what should and can be done on defense to counteract it. In that area, I think we will both have good things to say."It is a fine line how much to say, and I have worked with Mike twice and he is great because he will lead us into things, help us know when to talk and when not to. When I have something to say that will be helpful to the audience, that is when you want to say it. If it is not going to add to their knowledge, then you keep quiet."Tirico recognizes the importance of the comfort level the trio of announcers can carry into the broadcast. After all, they not only spend all of Sunday together, they also share thoughts via text or phone during the week.That can be a key for any broadcast crew. If there is any tension or animosity, it often is detected by the audience."It's a bit easier having the last couple of years together http://www.neworleanssaintsteamonline.com/benjamin-watson-jersey , or the few Thursday nights we worked on the field, being around the package when we had it," Tirico says. "Every Sunday for the better part of 11 to 12 hours we are catching every game in the league and then doing the pregame show live and then watching the Sunday night game."There is no learning curve for getting comfortable with the guys."And the viewers are certain to benefit. Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay's sensational rookie season is over after tests showed he sustained major damage to his right wrist in Denver's loss at Oakland, a person with knowledge of the MRI results told The Associated Press.The person, speaking on condition of anonymity because the team was off on Christmas Day, confirmed a report by 9News in Denver that medical tests Tuesday morning revealed ligament damage and a possible scaphoid fracture.Lindsay will miss the Broncos' final game against the Chargers (11-4) on Sunday, and it appears unlikely he'll be able to play in the Pro Bowl next month after becoming the first undrafted offensive rookie in NFL history to earn a Pro Bowl selection.Lindsay was injured in the Broncos' 27-14 loss to the Raiders on Monday night, a third consecutive defeat that ensured the team of back-to-back losing seasons for the first time since 1971-72.He'll be replaced by fellow rookie Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker on Sunday, when they'll need seek to avoid posting double-digit losses in consecutive seasons for the first time since 1966-67.Although Lindsay said after the game Monday night that he planned to play in the finale, he was unable to use his right hand while getting dressed and needed assistance buttoning his shirt and putting on a necktie.Lindsay, the former University of Colorado star who used his snubs from the NFL combine and 2018 draft as fuel for a stellar rookie season http://www.neworleanssaintsteamonline.com/marcus-williams-jersey , finishes his rookie campaign with 1,037 yards and nine touchdowns.He won't get the chance to break the NFL record of 1,104 yards for undrafted rookie running backs that was set by the Colts' Dominic Rhodes in 2001.The Broncos have lost seven starters to season-ending injuries plus wide receiver Demaryius Thomas to a trade 鈥?he tore his right Achilles tendon on Sunday in Houston's 32-30 loss to Philadelphia.Other Denver players out for the year are: linemen Matt Paradis, Ronald Leary and Max Garcia, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, tight ends Jake Butt and Jeff Heuerman and cornerback Chris Harris Jr.Harris said he's healed 2陆 weeks after fracturing his right fibula in a game at Cincinnati and he plans to play in the Pro Bowl next month in Orlando, Florida.
