I watch the NFL network (almost) constantly. Not fond of the bafoonish antics of some of their hosts, but I like the subtle sarcasm of Rich Eisen. Sharper spends more time worried whether he looks pretty enough and Irvin? Too bad about Michael Irvin. The years of coke abuse leaves him sometimes unbearable to listen to. I say too bad, because while I've hated on him since Miami, the guy really does have a vast knowledge of the game. But somewhere between brain and mouth...it get's garbled.
In fairness to NFL net. Before and during the Harvin signing, we were the matinee guys. I noticed a significant loss of mention when Harvin went down (or whatever you wanna' call it). I think reducing our coverage, as the result, makes perfect sense. I hate it, but when the tool they used to pump us was no longer, their initial storyline faded as well. Add to this the fact Sherm seems to have quieted down, and there's not really much to say about us until the season starts.
I am not concerned with any of it. A big win at Carolina and we will again be golden. They clearly love Pete and I get the impression they hope for our success and want us to be THE STORY. They will get their wish soon enough.
Having your views challenged is a lot more healthy than simply jabbering on with people who think exactly the same way as you.
