Re: Anyone else SICK of the media/commentators?

You know what gets me is that last week we are the hottest team in the nfl and all week the media didnt want to pick us to win. We can always count Micheal "the snowman" Irvin out he didnt even pick us to win when we played the 49ers...hater.....
but we did have one smart person that had our backs in the media Tony Kornheiser , he made a prediction and he stuck by it the whole time....hes lookin pretty smart right now.

As far as I'm concerned let the pinhead sports reporters interview losers all they want. They can ignore us all they want as long as we win. The less we are in the media, the less our opponents know what's going on. Oh and 1 more thing...


I hope Hasselbeck and Alexander have a spare pair of shoes on the sidelines, cause we're going to knock them out of the ones they're wearing Saturday!

no reason to defend this guy at all, but he is a big fan of Santana Moss and Portis and always features them in his "Playmakers" lists. strictly as alums of "The U" of course...

I cannot possibly fathom how people can have any praise for Chris Simms today. The kid threw three picks. That's horrible.

Re: Anyone else SICK of the media/commentators?

One thing that bothered me during the game is that the stupid sideline reporter (Suzi Kolber) went on and on about Simms, the Bucs, Gruden, etc., etc., but she rarely, if ever, had anything to say about the Skins. It got to the point that I thought she had a crush on either Simms or Gruden or both. And the camera kept on panning to Gruden and the Bucs fans in the stadium. I know there were lots of Skins fans there too, but you hardly saw them at all.

Anyway, most of what Kolber "reported" was pure nonsense and added absolutely nothing to the game, which is true of most of the network sideline reporters (fat Tony Siragusa included).

Re: Anyone else SICK of the media/commentators?

[QUOTE=GoSkinsGoTerps]Mike Lupica on the Sports Reporters was especially irritating this morning.

Lupica is a joke. He thinks New York is the center of the universe and has never been able to conceal his contempt for D.C.

When Jordan came out of retirement to play for the Wizards he was just beside himself. He couldn't believe that Jordan wouldn't want to play for the Knicks because he had convinced himself, along with most of the other New York writers that Jordan somehow considered Madison Square Garden to be his second home.

Also, a few years ago he was talking about being at R.F.K. when Wade Wilson nearly got the Vikings into Super Bowl 22 and what an inspiring performance that was. Doug Williams became the first African-American quarterback to win a conference championship that day and he remembers Wade Wilson?

Finally, I will be interested to see what Lupica has to say about the fact that his beloved Giants got creamed by a team from, of all places, Charlotte, N.C. That's somewhere in the Bible Belt isn't? How could that have possibly happened? How could the great Micheal Strahan have let that happen? Did Tiki forget to wear his cape? It must have been Shockey's injury. Yeah, that's the ticket. No wait. John Fox used to coach defense for the Giants so that is no doubt the angle Lupica will fall back on.

Re: Anyone else SICK of the media/commentators?

Like so many have said, let the New York driven media say what they want to. Both New York teams are on the History channel tonight. When we won our first Superbowl, we were considered the "Rodney Dangefield's of the NFL." Which basically meant no respect. Three rings later, the propaganda continues and the subjective commentating will become more vial now that the New York G-strings are finished. You just have to laugh because you understand why they say what they say. Remember Sally Jenkins? No comment.

Re: Anyone else SICK of the media/commentators?

I love how all these people that never watch the redskins have now concluded based on one bad offensive performance that the redskins can't score and have no chance next week. A couple weeks ago they were putting up 30 points a game. The offense was terrible yesterday...but that doesn't mean it will be terrible again next week. It's like no announcer even takes a minute to credit them for winning a playoff game on the road for f'ks sake. When ABC's postgame came on last night if you didn't know better you would have thought Tampa won the game. The bears have won every game this year with horrible offense yet they are media darlings...

Re: Anyone else SICK of the media/commentators?

Everyone wants to talk about how poor our offense was. I don't see it that way. I see it as Tampa Bay's defense being that damn good! I mean, doesn't a number one ranking mean something these days or did the media just happen to forget about that?
