Tim Ryan always knows his facts, and his observation that it was Russell Wilson being afraid to make mistakes that was holding him back in the red zone was spot on. Tim calls games for the Niners in the pre-season, Played a few years in the league, played for USC, and is a radio host for Sirius NFL radio in the afternoons, and I think he, along with Lynch and Mayock, are the three best game callers there are right now. SOOOOOO much better than listening to Martz.
QFT. I remember commenting last year on how much Tim Ryan impressed me as a color commentator during my 17power post game write ups. There is almost never a detail he misses or an insight he fumbles.
That plus he has a sweet beard. I wonder if he uses a tiny comb on it?
Listening to him on Sirius, he is pretty vain and egotistical, so yeah, probably. Not only does he call a good game, during draft season him and Pat Kirawan are one of the best sources of information in the league.
Last year, one of the things that impressed me was that before the season began, I saw and commented on TJ's struggles to throw the ball to the left. Then Ryan calls a game and highlights his struggles to throw to the left. Kinda made me feel like I wasn't totally stupid.
