    For the second straight Thursday night game, Bryant, in his whiny bitcch voice, has said that Seattle has a tough game coming up at San Diego. WTF is he smoking?

    Why is he even doing games? He has little to no experience, and obviously, from his attitude, doesn't give a flying bleep about what he's doing

    The best announcing team by far is the second stringers for MNF , the guys who covered the first Raider game, with my man Jaws. He is so frickin knowledgable about this game. I love the way he breaks it down and shows what the offense and defense were thinking and how they adjust before and during plays. That is good stuff. He is by far my favorite analyst, good in the studio, but even better it turns out in the booth. Get him on the A Team and send Kornheimer or whatever his name is packing.

    You can dropkick Theismann as well. The guy is a total waste of billable air time.

    this is a nice thread. i was also watching espn today and jaws said brady was the biggest pro bowl snub and that rivers should be replaced by him. how ridiculous is this. i dont think he even checked the stats. jaws will smarten up once brady eats crap in the divisionals.

    Dick Vermeil + Jaws are a great duo that should be used more often in conjunction with a "straight man" that does the general announcing.

    Totally agree. Vermeil is excellent with Jaws.

    Jaws is wrong about Rivers but he probably leans towards veterans and having guys pay their dues first. Or as a QB maybe he is seeing something we aren't.

    Although, Jaws did give Marty a Christmas present of a Lombardi on tonight's NFL Live, saying this was his year. :yes:

    My favorite Gumbelism is when he refers to a punt as "turning it over on downs".

    Gryant Bumbel is his new name.

    Gumble is a bafoon.

    The best announcer crew in the business now does the Sunday Night games.

    Watching the Steelers Browns game he referred to the doghouse as Chateau Bow-wow.

    At that point I had to mute it.

    Most NFL announcer and color guys try to look GQ but did anyone see what gumbel was wearing in the booth in oakland? He wore a shirt and tie with a members only jacket UNDER a sportcoat. What a moron.

    Holy Crap!!

    I just read that article! Although the link to the actual comments didn't work. If he really said those things about the winter games then that a-hole is the biggest racist ever!!

    double standards suck. I'm never going to be able to listen to the PGA again!!!

    :tdown:
