    Is there any doubt in anyone's mind that ESPN had a bottle of champagne in the booth and would have popped the cork with Shula had the Patriots lost?
    This win was so satisfying on so many levels. ;)
    BTW is there a more unprofessional broadcast group than ESPN's??
    Embarrassing in their agenda driven amateurism.

    i know a lot of people will NOT agree w/ me... but i like the espn mnf broadcast, actually i even like tony kornheiser... im not overly-sensitive about them bashing the pats... they bring this soap-opera-like drama, they make a big deal of little or worthless things but they make it entertaining especially to those who are not really big football fans...
    i watch those guys with my girlfriend and her friends and they find it entertaining considering they are not football fans... (they are forced to watch because i said so..:) )

    I think the camera crew was absolutely horrendus. I counted at least seven snaps that were missed due to a sideline shot, advertisement or closup of the players' face. Hell, I wish they had a separately broadcast with a view of the entire field.

    The whole production was pathetic.
    I wish Shula was in the booth for the end so they could have shown his disappointment.

    I didn't get home in time to catch it until the fourth quarter began, but I am told that it was awful and what I saw of it was just terrible.

    Two thoughts:

    If I have to hear the phrase "tragic inevitability" one more time out of that bald blowhard's big mouth, I might shoot myself. Change that. WILL.

    Also, I thought even Jaws was a little unprofessional, which surprised me, because I expect him to at least be neutral. Mayeb I was just so focused on Kornheiser and Shula that I confused it, but towards the very end of the game, Jaws rebutted Tirico everytime he said that it was a loss. Granted, it ended up they had a chance, but it was the way he was saying it. He kept saying you have to hope that you can do it things like that. MO.

    i thought blatent cheering for the Ravens was a little much and i think the side show commentary should be for the half time show, not the booth. I was quite discusted by the booth and how unprofessional they were. I get it, everyone loves an underdog. I remember when we were the underdog and it was fun. When you are the top team, EVERYONE wants to see you fall. It is lonely at the top.

    Agree completely. I can handle the announcers - in fact I chuckled more than a few times last night even when they were bashing the Pats.

    BUT, what I cannot stand is sloppy production. Besides the missed camera angles, I also noted they showed Billick in the frame just before or early in the 1st and had a graphic with BB's stats. You mean to tell me the guys in the truck can't even recognize the HC's of the teams and put the correct stats up??
