You might want to get that mute button ready to go this weekend.
Because when the Eagles and Buccaneers kick off at Raymond James Stadium at 1 p.m. on Sunday, there’s a FOX crew you might not be thrilled with calling the game:
Play-by-play: Kenny Albert
Color: Ronde Barber
Sideline: Tiki Barber
Albert is whatever. Some people like him, some people don’t.
But both Barber brothers?
That means the color commentator played his entire career for the team the Eagles are facing, the Bucs, spending most of his seasons at Raymond James Stadium.
And the sideline reporter played his entire career for one of the Eagles’ biggest rivals, the New York Giants.
It’s been a while since either guy played, so maybe we all have faith they’ll be able to be as unbiased as possible. But if they’re not, it won’t be hard to figure out why.
This comes a week after the Eagles saw Cris Collinsworth for the Thursday Night Football opener. Every fan base often thinks announcers are against their team, but Eagles fans really think Collinsworth hates the Birds based on his analysis during Super Bowl LII.
Add the Barbers and Collinsworth to a bunch of former Cowboys in the broadcast booth — Tony Romo, Troy Aikman, Jason Witten, etc. — and it’s enough to give Eagles fans a complex.
