Brady, Belichick “Legacy” is this Super Bowl’s WORST CLICHE

Tom Brady and Bill Belichick will team up to fill the void left by Peyton Manning last season. While last year we heard “Peyton Manning legacy,” “What will Peyton Manning’s legacy be?” “How will this game affect Peyton Manning’s legacy?” ad nauseam at this a time year ago…take it away NBC’s Cris Collinsworth. Collinsworth on Super Bowl XLIX: “This will be...

NBC protects the shield for the NFL

During the Baltimore-New England AFC Divisional Playoff game yesterday, Al Michaels read a statement in regards to the Mueller Report which said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell did not lie about seeing the Ray Rice tape.

The Media And That “Wacky” “Jokester” Terrell Suggs #NoMore

During Saturday night’s NFL Wild Card playoff game between the Ravens and Steelers on NBC, you could hear Cris Collinsworth signing the praises of Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs. In addition to praising his play on the field (which was sensational) Collinsworth also referred to Suggs as a “jokester” off the field at one point. During commercial breaks, NBC (and all networks...

New Year’s Six represents the zenith of ESPN’s resources and depth

Depth on the bench and desks in many places. No, this isn’t a commercial for furniture makers or hardware stores — it’s a tidy way to summarize why ESPN is best equipped to cover the College Football Playoff and the New Year’s Six bowl games on Dec. 31 and Jan. 1. When comparing ESPN to CBS/CBSSN, FOX/FS1, and NBC/NBCSN, there’s zero doubt that ESPN’s stable of announce...

Twitter Tuesday: Cris Collinsworth stirs up Who Dat Nation

There are varying opinions on Cris Collinsworth’s abilities as a football commentator. Suffice it to say that nobody believes he’s headed to the broadcasters’ Hall of Fame. So how did Collinsworth rile up the Saints’ fan base while the Cowboys and Eagles were playing in the game he was supposed to be watching? He mentioned that Darren Sproles’ exploits with the Eagles made...

Overrated? Maybe the Chiefs' 7-3 start was fool's gold after all

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It wasn't so much the six sacks, the 214 rushing yards allowed, the third-down failures, the errors forced and unforced, the 13-point home defeat that felt more like 25. Well, OK, it was all those things. But it was also this: Denver's Broncos held a mirror up to the Kansas City Chiefs, then splashed cold water on their face in front of Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth...

NBC finally gets good Sunday night game; Denver-Miami, Manning deliver for CBS

Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth probably had to go back into their memory bank to recall how to call a close game. It had been that long. Dallas’ 28-24 victory over the Giants broke a remarkable nine-game streak of routs (closest victory margin was 18 points) on Sunday night. A compelling game obviously helped the ratings. NBC did a 14 overnight rating, up from the 11.9 final...

Packers 55, Bears 14: Don’t say you weren’t warned America, NBC SNF

You know it is bad when Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth are thanking the one viewer who stuck with last night’s disaster, and hoping the person has a Nielsen box. Green Bay’s 55-14 victory over the Bears had the feel of an August preseason game. The Packers pulled Aaron Rodgers in the third quarter, much to the disappointment of his fantasy owners who were hoping for 10 TDs...
