Good call by Westwood One Radio to have the duo of Bill Rosinski and Dan Reeves do the national broadcast of Sunday's game between the Panthers and Falcons.

Rosinski and Reeves are both top-notch broadcasters, but they also bring more to this game than any other. Rosinski has been the play-by-play announcer for both the Falcons and the Panthers.

Rosinski worked on the Falcons' radio network for three seasons before joining the expansion Panthers in 1995. Rosinski spent 10 years with the Panthers and still lives in Charlotte, where he remains a popular figure.

Reeves is one of the biggest football names in Atlanta's history. He coached the Falcons and took them to their only Super Bowl. In fact, Reeves and the 1998 team were honored before last week's game against Denver and the former coach drew a huge ovation from the Georgia Dome crowd.
