Like most people at ESPN (past and present) I can't thank Beeman enough for what he's done, but wish he would now go away.

I, of course, am partial to my friends at ESPN but I will watch both back and forth

Ay yi yai, Chris Berman no es bueno!

NFLN. I prefer Eisen as a host, and I'm partial to Mayock, Albert Breer, etc. at NFLN. I'll occasionally switch it to ESPN on commercial. But either way I won't be watching at home this year, since I'm going to Fedex on Thursday and Saturday, so I'll be watching the draft coverage there. I hope they'll be playing NFLN lol, and I'm not sure what to expect for Thursday night.

Seeing Chris Beeman say the f-word just made my day. Thank you for bringing that video to my attention.

Re: Whose coverage will you watch for the NFL Draft?

I'll switch back and forth...I am partial to Mayock. He's probably my favorite analysis guy on this stuff but Kiper is still the classic and we only get to see him this time of year. ESPN's coverage is like a lot of stuff they do, a little over-done in some indescribable way. That may just be because of Berman though.

Re: Whose coverage will you watch for the NFL Draft?

I like pretty much everyone on NFLN and watch Total Access every night so will probably stay there the majority during the draft. However, when Irvin starts talking about how great Cowboys are and he's the greatest wr ever and blah, blah blah, I have to turn it off. Same with Neon and his clothes. My wife asked me not long ago if Neon ever talked football because he has more comments about his suits and what guys are wearing than anything else.

If Neon interviews RG3 next weekend, first question "That's a great suit. You look good. Do I look good to you?" If Irvin, "Don't you wish you could play for the Cowboys? When Romo retires are you going to try to force a trade?"

ESPN doesn't have anyone I truly can't stand but Eisen, Mooch, Mayock, Billick, Sapp and Breer just seem like guys smarter than me that I can relate to.

That made me realize something. Deion is to NFLN's draft coverage what Berman is to ESPN's draft coverage. The difference is NFLN cuts to Deion every now and then where as Berman is there on day 1 and 2 around 60% to 70% of the time.

Deion is something totally different to me. Just a totally opinionated and mouthy type. Berman to me is all shtick now. Hardly much substance to what he presents at all.

At least Deion will say things that contribute to the conversations. He's a pain to listen to in a different way. BUT like you said...he isn't anchoring the coverage.

What coverage will you watch and are some of your pros and cons for each network?
i always felt like he has a good feel for what were up to as well.

ill be watching NFL Network regardless.

Re: Whose coverage will you watch for the NFL Draft?

I prefer NFLN. The only two guys I really enjoy over at ESPN are Jaws and Herm Edwards. I feel like Gruden is too much of a self promoter. Is there anyone better than Mike Mayock? Also Casserly, Davis and Lombardi are all top notch.
