Straight Outta Stockton – Week 7

We've already covered a couple of announcing bloopers from Sunday's NFL action, but don't worry, there's still plenty of leftover goodness for Straight Outta Stockton including Dick Stockton's fondness of his partner John Lynch, Lynch's fondness for Fox programming, and some new ground broken for Antonio Cromartie…

Straight Outta Stockton Week 7


Last week was an awesome debut for the Dick Stockton Chronicles – Straight Outta Stockton.  Thanks to all of you who left a comment or tweeted in a quote.  Redzone’s Scott Hanson will go down in the record books (there are record books for this, right?) as the first ever weekly winner.  Dick himself mustered seventh place while Phil Simms and Brian Billick look like top contenders as well.  Don’t forget to also leave us any quotes from pre or postgame shows (especially Countdown!) as well.

We’ll try and update the thread as best as we can on Sundays, but you can check the comments below and our Twitter timeline for all submissions.  Then, we’ll be back on Tuesdays with 15-20 nominees and you’ll vote on our Top 10 for the week.  SOS winners will be announced Thursdays with updated standings.  Below you can find the links to last week’s Top 10 and this week’s NFL announcing schedule with broadcast maps.
