My bad, didn't come up on my site search. I deleted the Kelso reference and just kept the Tasker info.

Tasker has his gig with West Herr Automotive to fall back on. He will be fine...even when he is dumped from OBL.

Wish he would have been dumped today instead of Kelso

Excited about the Eric Wood addition. He was always a good guest on all the WGR shows. Hopefully he does better as a commentator than at his "retirement" "speech".

I thought Kelso was fine just tended to ramble.  Taster was terrible on the radio, fine in the both or on the sidelines.

Wood should be TONS better than Kelso, he's awful.

If anything, just remove the Kelso reference in your title and make the thread about ( THANK GOD ) Tasker being out.

Are you saying he's not? A lot can be said about Murphy, but he's a good radio professional that's good at speaking and getting his point across.

 

 

Well, he doesn't slur his words or anything I guess.  That's not equivalent to being articulate.

 

But the next time he makes a cogent original point will be his first time.   Every sentence ends with:  "i mean, right?" and "don'cha think?".  He repeats himself endlessly.

 

Here's just one example:  caller says he was surprised that the Bills didn't take a WR in any round (hardly a hot take, by the way).  Murph starts in on the guy--gets all defensive.  "they said they didn't have a WR at any round worth picking!  They said it!  So...whattaya whattaya think, they're lying?  You think Beane and McDermott are lying??" 

 

He's a bonehead.  He should call games for the radio and that's it.  There's no way he can power half of a 3 hour daily radio show.  You can almost hear Steve groaning inside when he has to respond to Murph's goofy and company takes.

Tasker announced it yesterday at noon on OBL. It was discussed here, but maybe not in its own thread. Again, I wasn't being rude. Just letting Chevy know
