These buffoons are so bad it's comical
Dan Koppen at center
Nate Ebert again
Called Vincent Jackson Mike Williams despite the camera clearly showing the back of Jackson's jersey.
They totally missed the first personal foul on the Patriots. Per NFL it was a facemask on Mayo but you wouldn't know from listening to them...
Koenen the punter is in a battle with kicker Barth to get the kicker roster spot
Penalty Tampa Bay..... Trueblood .......no it's on Ryan Wendell......Ted Larsen
The caption said Orlovsky was 22 years old.
I think he said Pepper Chung.
I'm half-expecting them to call Brady Tim Brody or Tom Bradley.
So he finally gets Ebner right only to attach his rugby background to Ebert! These guys are drunk.
This was killing me tonight.
Josh McDaniel instead of McDaniels.
On the flip side, I was on the road and listened to most of the first half on the radio tonight, and I thought Zolak was solid and informative.
He's clearly still getting used to the role -- he seemed reluctant to interrupt Gil and thus didn't say enough. And as "color" commentators go, he wasn't especially colorful. But he was refreshingly opinionated, especially when it came to assigning blame on failed plays, and he broke down the action with impressive clarity in key situations. Anybody concerned that the goofball persona Zo shows in some other jobs would dominate should be pleasantly surprised.
Shane Vereen is 34 years old.
"And the offensive line is working hard to protect that man... right there... Tom Brady.' (Mallett had been in the game about 10 minutes at that point).
OK...well....in that case.
Me too, even my father had a puzzled look on his face on that one, he was saying it Mar-kweeze
hey...nice pic of my ex-wife ,AQ...
"Dante Scarnecchia, Defensive Line Coach." This even though Criqui was mentioning Scarnecchia to point out the adjustments the O-Line had made.
Not many folks see the beauty in everyone like you can.
That's O.K. - the league isn't much better. Donte Stallworth's drop got charged to Matthew Slater in the official stat sheets. Speaking of which, those were released nearly an hour after the game instead of within 2-5 minutes like they normally are. I thought it was because they were correcting that (among other) errors, but apparently not
Criqui would rather drink than do his homework on the names of the players....
Perhaps Stallworth doctored the stats to help his chances of making the team.
BB in a sleep-deprived haze this morning evaluating personnel: "Who had that godawful drop in the fourth quarter? Let me see the report ... Oh yeah, Slater. At least he's not on the bubble like Stallworth."
The names confusion is grating for sure. But I could take that if they could master the art of not getting so caught up in blathering to fill time that they are incapable of breaking off and actually calling a play. Criqui does sound like he's half in the wrapper much of the time even when he's just trying to flush out their idiotic talking points. Hard to believe these clowns get to watch practice and get production meetings with all the central characters. Bill probably likes having them call games as there is little an enemy could elicit from their input beyond watching a game on mute.
"Alright, Mangold.... make sure to watch some film on their new Rookie Dante Mallett... he played Rugby, you know."
Separate names with a comma.
