Honestly, I think it just speaks of desperation of a network trying to turn around the declining trend of TV viewing of NFL games. The data last season was clear that viewership is declining.

The declining trend is due to streaming options. Studies have shown that the vast majority of the viewership tune in to watch the game.... not the announcers.

If so, can we blame them?

That's exactly my point.  Other options.
