Jameis refuses to go down plus the worst play by play call ever https://t.co/jXwcr2nO6z

Dick Stockton is an all-time great announcer. Let’s put that out there as a qualifier for what needs to be said next.
We’re going on several years now where he is off the pace for what should be the standards for a national network televising an NFL game. Just take this play for example, where Stockton calls a non-existent fumble, and non-existent recovery for the wrong team, on a Jameis Winston scramble.
There are plenty of young, up-and-coming announcers that deserve a shot calling an NFL game, but this is another example of the backwards broadcasting hierarchy that inhibits fans from getting a better product.
