is it just me or did it seem like they were rooting for mia? Or maybe just wanted a close game.
also, what was with the comment about the pats taking advantage of the east coast and being fresh (don't remember exact words) . Both teams are from east coast and the pats travelled, not the phins. Either really dumb comment or me really dumb.
on the positive, I liked the FedEx a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a auto repair commercial

Personally, I have no problem with it. TV announcers always have a rooting interest: they're pulling for compelling television. That's their job. Often it means talking up the underdog to convince viewers it's going to be a tighter game than they think. Occasionally it means fawning over greatness...and as the MNF boys realized that Brady was entering record-setting territory, they happily switched to that mode.
I don't know, I thought that also during the game, but I just got done re-watching it and the praise for Brady, Belichick and the Pats was pretty extensive. Overall, I thought they were more than fair, which isn't often the case in my opinion during night games.
"Would I rather have my phone records collected and inspected by the National Security Agency, or have my genitalia handled and scrutinized by the Transportation Security Administration? Why choose? In today’s America you can have both."
Gruden got his seasonal four-letter slip in there.
Seriously though, I noticed their "coaching" of the Dolphins too, but I guess I'm used to it because it didn't bother me a whole lot. I thought it was funny when Gruden said, "All the Dolphins need is a big play on defense."
Queue the interception, TD, and then the Pats strike back. There's Gruden a few minutes later, "Now all they need is another big play on defense."
We get what we deserve.
------------------ “On a day when they could have had impact players David Terrell or Koren Robinson..they took Georgia defensive tackle Richard Seymour, who had 1 sacks last season in the pass-happy SEC and is too tall to play tackle at 6-6 and too slow to play defensive end. This genius move was followed by trading out of a spot where they could have gotten the last decent receiver in Robert Ferguson and settled for tackle Matt Light, who will not help any time soon.”
