Crow-eating Collinsworth

This needs to stop, If we open up the draft day thread so many on here were absolutely horrified when we took Allen over Rosen. I would say 75% or more hated the pick and stated the exact same thing Collinsworth has said. He woke people up and made them into believers there is nothing wrong with making a mistake. So if we can forgive 75% + of the board we can forgive Collinsworth.

 

It cracks me up when people pretend like this didn't happen.

Even Collinsworth was forced to gush over Josh and our Bills tonight…from his awestruck dumbfoundedness in discussing how Josh just loves to play and tell the Rams how he’s owning them after stiff-arms, to making the profound observation that Stafford’s best highlight play was his tackle in defense against Boogie Basham’s INT return…it was a night for the (usually Debbie Downer) announcer makeover for the ages! What were your favorite Collinsworth quips on the night?

He's always been extremely complimentary of Allen, very few people in the football world aren't.  This constant whining over not getting enough effusive praise is tiresome.  The fans are supposed to kiss butt, not the announcers.

I do not enjoy listening to Chris Collinsworth. I don't see that changing.

Mike Tirico, however, had the quote of the night. "The Rams put up a banner and the Bills put on a show."

I'm not a Tirico fan, never have been going back to his MNF days.  I find him almost overly smooth and polished, and kind of boring.  I really missed Al Michaels last night.

 

Having said that, that's a great line you reference!

I totally disagree with this. I don't think any other color guy has a better eye for why a play has or hasn't worked and is able to break it down 2 seconds after it happened than Collinsworth. 

 

Some of the fluff stuff is annoying. But as an actual game analyst he remains just about the best. 

 

I do know this is not the consensus view. But that is honestly my take.

Romo is probably better than CC day in and day out.  CC does have the advantage of owning PFF, so access to a lot of material and knowledgeable staff.

Romo is brillian pre-snap. He regularly starts analysing a play post snap and has to go correct himself as the replay ubfolds because what he thought happened wasn't quite right.

The anti Collinsworth crowd seems a little over the top and super sensitive. 

Hardly. It’s all about speaking truth to power! 😉

 

What’s the harm in a bit of post-game harping fun at national media’s expense exactly? Especially if it’s been earned? Of course we could start a new Edmunds thread instead, I suppose 😅.

He said watching Allen tonight was like watching Brady he was so perfect. 
We have national star power players now, he loves us. Did you even read our pff ranks when the starting lineups flashed on the screen? He’s gotta hype us up 😂😂😂


He said Allen was Brady AND Peyton Manning haha

I'm more interested to see what Nick Wright says today.  He said he had no idea why the Bills were favored and was so sure of himself that the Rams would handle the Bills.

Why? That guy could die in a tire fire while eating a hot bucket of Ds and the world would be a better place.

"Now here's a guy who's starting to figure out the game," speaking of the NFL in general, not this specific game. I laughed out loud.

That infuriated me. Later he said he likes Edmunds because he plays down hil and gets into the backfield.  I then realized this was the first Bills game he has watched.
