My non-Tickety observation is that it was terrible.
Babe Laufenberg was doing the teevee color, so Brad Sham was paired with "Coach Joe" Avezzano and Steve Dennis.
Is Coach Joe some kind of local beloved character? I know about his coaching career, but is he known for being an astute observer of the local football scene? The gags about him being techologically behind the times, and references to what school someone came from, and all the rest, was pointless, unamusing, repeated ad nauseum, and dumb. I didn't hear one observation from him about what was going on on the field that wasn't obvious; his offerings were so generalized and cliched that I could have written them in advance of the game. The highlight was where Brad was reading a lst of all the Cowboys who had carried the ball in the game, and when he was done, Coach Joe said "and a porridge in a pear tree." He's like Greggo, without the eloquence.
You know who he sounds like? Hank Hill's neighbor Bill on "King of the Hill." Hey, if he's some DFW deity that everyone loves, I apologize for the disrespect. But man, he was awful in the booth.
Steve Dennis spent more time commenting on his own commentary and Tweeting than offering game observations. On the TV I would see some cowboy headed off the field on a cart, and those three were larfing it up about some nothing or other.
Hard to believe that The Fan could not have assembled better support for Brad Sham than that, or that they couldn't have directed Coach Joe and Dennis to do some game prep. The broadcast was a trainwreck from beginning to end.
NOTE: This was corrected from its first posting, as I had the channel entirely wrong. Observations are the same. Many thanks to Anonymous below for pointing out my error.
Shaggy below also suggests that the Cowboys select the broadcast team. I had been under the impression that the Cowboys might have approval rights, but the network/station hires the broadcasters. I'll be there's someone out there who knows.
If it is the Cowboys -- it doesn't improve the broadcast.
