Amen!

Welcome to our world Brad.
Its very hard to appreciate the unfolding of a play when all the cameras do is follow the ball.
You see the result, not the development.
Especially the passing game, its very hard to appreciate the timing and routes as the QB sees them.


With all the new high def stuff coming out, maybe its time to get a larger view of the field during the start of the play or better yet give people an option on the camera views while they're watching.
Maybe a QB cam as well.
Little more bandwidth, few extra bucks, and we're there.

And yes, most announcers are complete morons, they feel they have to talk so much that they just throw shit out and hope they were right.
Of course, they never correct themselves and continue to mislead most of the football watching public.
After all they are the experts.

Good, now we just need the WRs to hold onto the ball in important situations

I hope Brad gets it done against the Seahawks. We are in need of a win and to tell the truth if we don't start beating some teams that should beat us on paper, we are not going to make the playoffs this year. I do see us squeaking in as a wild card, but I don't want to go back to the days of waiting to see if someone loses so we get in thing that I experieced most of the 90s. But maybe the week off straighten out our offense and we will see more offensive firepower in the second half of the season.

No problem, their hands are well rested now
It's hard to catch the ball with tired hands.

Do you ever have anything objective to say or do you see everything through the prism of your bias. I don't know you but I have a feeling you were a big Culpepper fan. Do you think that culpepper would have been doing a better job at this point?

nothing is worse than the new MNF crew.. i mean, sure im glad madden is gone... but i didnt completely hate them, although i did hate 1/2 the things they said.

its much better than the new trio of MNF however, a group of guys that rarely have something constructive to say about the game, but rather constantly spew out terrible jokes, and in the case of tony, just talks about how its almost past his bedtime.. the most annoying part however, is the constant parade of "celebrities" i mean, tom cruise? charles barkley? at least they didnt bring ashton & demi in after taking a quick shot of them..

sad thing is, barkley knew more about football than the announcers.

Before I finished reading your post I was going to reply that Barkley was a refreshing break to an intelligent analysis of the game. But you ended up saying that.
