Is this your first time listening to any type of sporting event?!?!?!

Look those 3 up and listen to them for 10 minutes. You will want to pierce your eardrums

 

Ok maybe I exaggerated a wee bit. But he stinks.

It was weird being on the other side of him actively rooting for the underdog. He is still the best of the network A teams. 

 

Its clear Al michaels has no chemistry with the color guy on Amazon, so next week should be interesting.

The commentators didn't even notice that Dawkins was out of the game.  With the limited view of personnel that we get on TV, I immediately saw that Quess was in the game and figured out that Dawkins was down.  I'm saying "Where's my left tackle?" but Tony is yammering about nonsense.  Took them about 10 minutes to realize that our all-star LT was out of the game.  Not that it's important or anything.

 

Also when he said Dane had had a couple of bad games but he couldn't remember who we'd played.

Romo and Nantz are entertaining enough. The Thanksgiving broadcast mucks things up as well. So much time talking about fluff, or playing puff pieces, instead of showing TD replays or game highlights/analysis. Whatever.

 

Taking the win, and we're on to New England.

From The Athletic:

 

"Allen was way off and completed just 6 of 15 passes for 54 yards and an interception, and it seemed like each time Allen misfired, CBS analyst Tony Romo would pelt viewers with his belief that the elbow injury was playing a role. If a fan took a shot every time Romo said it, well, let’s just say there might not have been many memories of Thanksgiving dinner."

I have never liked Tony Romo. He talks too much.  He also has to tell us what they're gonna do next in between plays and is wrong probably 60% of the time at least.

 

We had it turned down kindof low so I couldn't really hear all that much and I had him tuned out.  I did hear "13 seconds" several times. I tune out most announcers.  With the down and distance and clock on the screen all the time I really don't need them to tell me anything, so I don't listen.

 

When Tommy starts doing games I will mute and listen to rock'n roll instead

 I don't know what team you've been watching, but we don't have an all-star LT. Him and Morse are our 2 best OL, but he's not even close to an all-star.

Until now I've enjoyed Romo's commentary and his insights into the game.

 

Today I thought he talked too much about nonsense and was poorly prepared.  I'm done with him.

I guess you don’t have more important things to worry about than to “be done” with a n NFL analyst.  We’re analyzing analysts now.

He has some rough edges to smooth out, but one thing I appreciate about him, is that he will question and speculate on calls made by the officials. drives me crazy how many announcers will just gloss over or ignore bad calls and no calls. There's almost no acknowledgement at all.

he was pretty amped up for the lions and I believe was hoping they would pull it off. I was real glad his wishes didn't come true.

 

detroit has a good thing going with campbell and they played tough. I remember a time when the bills would not of won a close game like this. it was great to be on the winning side and gave me another thing to be thankful for yesterday.

 

 

GO BILLS!!!

Or that White wasn't in the entire second half. Romo made some rambly point at the start about White "being on a pitch count but starting" then they never mentioned it again. Tony was too busy telling us Dan Campbell is aggressive and Dane Jackson is a couple of years away from being really good. 

 

I'd have got as much insight if I'd let my neighbours dog do the color commentary.

I took a walk during the first half and listened to the WGR feed and really appreciated Eric Wood. He corrected Murph’s constant errors, updated personnel and injuries, and immediately broke down each play, telling why it did/did not work. No hyperbole, just info.

He also called Mike Love by number only and had no idea who he was. Plus that Dane Jackson budding superstar nonsense. I am sure that there were lot of other things as well.

 

I tend not to get annoyed by any commentators, so I don't mind him. I just think it is very unprofessional to be unprepared. I know I know nothing about players on other teams, but I am not being paid millions for that. He's just not prepared as he should be (he isn't the only one ofc).

Well, I like Romo. So there's that. my nonproductive take on a nonproductive thread.

 

Oh wait, this is the mandatory "I don't like this or that announcer" that must be posted every week. Just insert the name of the week.
