    That was also the worst play-by-play performance I've ever listened to in my life. Who is that clown? It's like he just learned football last night.

    I was about to make a topic about him. He makes me long for Dan Dierdorf.

    I assumed it was the Steve Tasker of the early 90s Buffalo Bills. Special teams player who made a name for himself chasing down Leon Lett and preventing yet another touchdown during one of the Cowboys-Bills Superbowl slaughters. The first one, I believe, in '92.

    I confess, I was out of necessity using "alternative media" to watch the game, and missed Tasker's comments about the PI call.. What did he say?

    Tasker was a good special teams player for the Bills during the Kelly era.

    horrible commentator though

    Tasker is a punch drunk ex-Bill. He has ALWAYS hated the Patriots.

    Know for a fact he called it "horrible", pretty sure he threw in an "absolutely" or something as well in there.

    Also, every time Brady threw it away he demanded it was intentional grounding. The one time the Browns got called for it, he said it was the wrong call. He then got noticeably giddy anytime the Browns moved the ball and sounded genuinely depressed when the Patriots progressed.

    His first reaction to the amazing onside kick was "But wait, did it go 10 yards?! Did Gost touch it?!"

    Basically he thought it was a horrible call given the situation. But it went far beyond that, it seemed like every call in favour of the Patriots he disagreed with, and every Browns call he sought to justify and approved of (they were hit and miss both ways as you saw). Plus just generally horrible play-calling all around.

    The worst for me was him calling Gordon's hand being caught in Talib's facemask as he went to the ground "a good call". No one did anything because even the Browns that that one was coming back.

    So who was it with Tasker in the booth?

    Criqui? If so, it's time for him to retire. That was the worst play-by-play work I've ever heard in my life.

    Also you know he hates Belichick after Belichick basically told him to go f himself when he wanted an interview after the AFCC game last year.

    Chriqui is laughably bad too. Every potential grounding call was an absolute adventure

    Don Criqui. He use to be the Patriots preseason game announcer for years until they ditched him and Randy Cross this year.

    You're thinking of another speedy, white Buffalo WR: Don Beebe
