    Last night in referencing Baltimore's decision to go for it on 4th down Costas said after the game some coaches can be made to look like bums and others to look like geniuses?

    It may have been a reference to the controversey more than his opinion on it.

    NO he didn't call him a bum.

    Your a goat if it doesn't work and a genius when it does.

    I thought it was Al Michaels that said that.

    sounds to me like he was saying the opposite, that people are too quick to shout "bum!" or "genius!" based on the outcome of the play, not on the basis of the decision itself.

    It's just an expression.

    Let's not get started with Michaels...He and Collingsworth showed how far lying can go with their call of the Faulk catch..the 4th and 2...I think both exposed themselves for making things up TOTALLY!! If you do not believe that..watch the whole segment..and how Michaels watches the slow mo replay and sees something that IS NOT THERE!!! He does it twice..
    "Juggle, juggle, it's caught"....Doesn't have it doesn't have it..now he's got it"...What the blazes is he looking at when he says that?? X ray eyes?? or making it up when he goes along....seeing things that ARE NOT THERE!!!
    When the tech goofs at NBC...(and they really fumbled on this one big time...as the one view of it all from the left endzone shot that one CAN SEE possession was shown NOT directly after the play...but a full 3 minutes after..2 min break commercials etc..) shiwed the best view..and looking at Michael's statements..when he yelled out the second "Doesn't have it" and the second "juggle"...Faulk indeed HAS the ball and is in complete control.
    What was Michaels looking at to make a FALSE statement?? If he could not see it..which obviously he could not..why not admit it?? I can't take ANYTHING he says seriously after that..He's a total disgrace..and the video and his lying words say it ALL!!!

    Actually Al Michaels called BB a moron first, and then he was referred to as a bum later.
