Titans Radio Crew Change

leave a comment »

According to this Tennesseean story, former Titans stalwart tight end Frank Wycheck will replace Pat Ryan as the analyst on the Titans’ radio broadcasts. Even since I started listening to the Titans’ radio team during the 2000 season, I’ve been impressed with the quality of their play-calling and analysis. Being without a TV, radio is how I’ve followed the NFL this year and I’ve listened to a number of different teams’ feeds and consider the Titans to be one of, if not the, top radio team. True, play-by-play man Mike Keith and sideline report Cody Allison remain, but what I always liked about Pat Ryan, even more than his propensity to say amusing things (he was fined during the 2000 season for calling kickers “foreigners”) has been his ability, so rare in the broadcasting business, to watch a play and be able to pick out the important things in real time, without seeing a replay. This is incredibly valuable, and unless Wycheck can do the same thing, it’ll be a downturn in the quality of the broadcast.
