NFL Rumors: Mike Mayock and Gus Johnson Calling Thursday Night Games?

We’ve seen plenty of rumors in the last few days that have suggested that NFL Networks draft expert Mike Mayock could be taking over for Matt Millen and Joe Theismann but Richard Deitsch, SI.com writes that sources have suggested that the NFL Network is considering adding Gus Johnson to the booth as well.

Millen and Theismann were terrible last year to put it mildly so adding almost anyone other than Dennis Miller to the broadcast should be seen as an upgrade. If the rumors are true, the NFL Network may hit this one out of the park. Few people are as respected as Mike Mayock is in the talent evaluating world and Gus Johnson has become a favorite of sports fans in general.

I’m not sure how much interest the tandem alone would garner but it would no doubt be a huge upgrade to one of the most lackluster broadcasts the NFL currently has going.
