Just catching up...

I missed the Christmas Day Fox retrospective.  I'm hoping I can stream that somewhere soon.

And I missed most of the tributes as well - at least the in-depth ones.

Yeah, he and Summerall were the best thing going, but IMHO, Summerall was the straw that kept that drink stirred.  He had the dulcet-toned voice (like Herb Carneal) and his calls were always understated compared to Madden's over-the-top antics.  As I recall - toward the end of Madden's tenure - his schtick was no longer fresh and innovative - and despite his great knowledge of the game and insights - he became a caricature of himself.  Still, an all-time great whose legacy to the game will never be equaled.   R.I.P.
