  • I just wish there weren't so many of them. They used to do fine with just two people on screen, with an occasional aside from an outside commentator.

    Now they have to have at least 4, sometimes 5 or 6, and since everybody has to get a chance to pontificate the shows have been extended FAR longer than they need to actually cover the content. Then throw in 'special comments' from some failed comedian just for grins. Sorry, but their failed attempts to make the pre/post-games shows 'entertaining' kind of ruins it for me.

    So I guess I agree in general. They have seriously diluted the talent pool available.
    Talent can get you to the playoffs.
    It takes character to win when you get there.

    Yeah. It's fed for the constant thirst of football that we all have though.

    Plus I think a lot of football players realize they have no other talents so they have to go back to what they know. Problem is they aren't journalists so they basically are just tv personalities portrayed as experts.

  • Dilfer is an interesting one. The guy is actually really football smart, and has the potential to be a good analyst. The problem is every single thing he says or does has an agenda. Dilfer's agenda priority list looks something like this:
    1. Promote QBR and try to apply it to every conversation.
    2. Dig at the Hawks. (Which I honestly don't understand.)
    3. Support the Niners

    His other issue is the way he backpedals and completely 180s to the other extreme when proven wrong. Admitting you're wrong is good. What he does is is sad. It's really too bad he's like this, since he's leagues better than mouth breathing buffoons like Heath Evans or Michael Irvin. Those guys are horrible, no matter if they're all picking the Hawks now.

    And in case there's any confusion: Screw Dilfer. Worst waste of a flag raiser ever.

    I use them correctly (or at least they are technically correct, though sometimes just using a period and starting a new sentence might work better). My real problem is run-on sentences, and sometimes a semicolon can be an accomplice to that.

  • Joe Buck, by a mile.

    He's a baseball guy from a baseball family, and he has absolutely no business whatsoever doing the play-by-play for NFL games.

    Annoying as hell.

    Shows what you know.

    Along with Dan Fouts, he's actually always been one of the game's best.

    Dierdorf give sound, reasoned analysis of every play, and he doesn't come across as an arrogant football snob when he does it.

    Mike Mayock is a good example of a football snob, always taking about what the guy who just caught the last pass ran at the combine, where scouts thought the guy would go in the Draft, what the guy ate for dinner the night before the Draft.

    No one gives a spit about any of that, Mike "the NFL's Dick Vitale": JUST CALL THE DAMNED GAME.

    I guess we just disagree, because Mayock is one of my favorites.

    That's what I know. Did it show?

    If we're forming the Avengers of announcers, can I put in a vote for Brad Nessler maybe?

  • I actually like Dierdorf, and will miss him. But the guy is a gaffe machine and kind of an idiot. I just like him because he reeks old school, good ol' boy football. That plus old MNF nostalgia.

  • I don't like: Mike Martz. I don't even think he gets to call games anymore. I remember his call during 2012's away game with the Rams at the end "No interceptions for touchdowns today!!!!". I think that dickwad was horrible. Heath Evans likes the purple crayons and sucks too.

  • Jay Glazer called Pete Carroll a liar today for no reason at all. The other 3 guys were talking about how awesome the Seahawks pass defense and one mentioned that Pete was a disciple of Lane Kiffin and the Seahawks as a team compete with each other and it breeds good play and a deep roster.

    Glazer stands up from the desk they were all sitting at and interrupts the guy talking and then says "Hold on a second. Hold on a second. Hold on a second. Hold on a second. Did you really just put Lane Kiffin and Pete Carroll in the same (sentence)? Are you kidding me? Are you guys letting him go with that? Hmmmm. One guy tells a truth a lot, one doesn't"

    What a dick.

    I would have assumed he was calling Kiffen the liar, not Pete. I have gotten the opinion that Glazer kinda likes Pete.

    I actually meant monty kiffin. I incorrectly typed Lane. But I may have screwed the whole thing thing up because I deleted it off my DVR and can't say for sure which Kiffin he mentioned. It seemed like a slam on Pete though. Nice catch because the name the Kiffin he mentioned changes the whole meaning and I am not totally sure of which one.
