    you would think that Mortenson would know enough about football to look at the plays himself and make up his mind about whether Moss is "taking plays off." If not, why is he even commenting?

    if they are fair they will show he answers football questions were enthusiastically. its when irrelevant questions like when someone will practice or what do u think of bulletin board material are asked..he shuts down.

    "Batch (Boston): Do you think Tedy Bruschi is on his back nine? He just can't seem to meet lead blockers at the hole the way he used to.


    Mortensen: That has been my impression for the past year or so, but I just got off the phone with a GM who watched the Ravens-Pats tape and he was surprised that the game tape gave a different impression: Bruschi and Junior Seau played well versus the Ravens."

    Why watch tape when you can get anonymous GM's to do your thinking and research for you...

    If they ask him a football question, he answers.. if they ask him a question about a ref's call, players injury of the comments of another player he gets pissed off and plays with the press.. I do not blame him.. this is another silly NFL rule, which he hates, right along with wearing official NFL Adidas Wear on the sideline.

    Why think for yourself and develop your own opinion, when the network will just feed it to you. IMO, most of what these folks say is scripted....

    Great "expert" pick. It's like me picking against the Colts every week. What a a surprise.

    The word "expert" is thrown around very loosly by the mediots these days. Anybody in a nice jacket with a microphone can be an "expert."

    Only Tom Jackson of the "the team hates their coach" quote picks the Steelers over the Pats. This clown's agenda against the Pats is so obvious it's not even funny.

    Disable Jersey

    Dunno about Seau, whom I remember being undressed by Willis on a long run but I did watch Bruschi a bit against the Ravens and I thought he played better than he had done all year.

    I said in an earlier thread, before any picks were in that the 3 stooges; Golic, Schlereth and Hoge would all pick the Steelers...as they always pick against the Pats. I forgot about Tom "I am a complete idiot" Jackson...
