Re: Which pregame show do you watch?

I'm with the consensus -- most of the time I'm watching ESPN, but during the commercials I'll switch over to FOX. If they're on a commercial too, then it's on to CBS.

If they're all on commercials then I get pissed off head for the fridge.

The one thing with FOX -- and they do this every year, and every year I complain about it -- is that during the game they will give us the endzone angle of plays. That irritates me to no end. It seems like they do it for most of the kick and punt returns.

They're just trying to be "edgy" or "artsy-fartsy" and I hate it.

Stop trying to be different, FOX. Just give us the traditional angle for every single play, all right? TAFKAS, make sure ESPN doesn't try that crap.

ESPN gets my vote too. Although I will flip to the others during commercials. I enjoyed watching Deon when he was on CBS because he was such a douchebag, I couldn't look away...like a car crash. Marino makes Robert Mitchum look lively.

I stick with FOX...but with JB going to CBS, I may have to flip back and forth.
With very few exceptions, for the past several years ESPN's pregame show is at its peak ratings wise between 11:45-12:15. Particularly from 12-12:15. But then after 12:15 the ratings drop. Not by a dramatic amount but they definitely drop. At the final quarter hour they are their worst. By this time most people have turned to the network that will be broadcasting their team's game. So yeah it probably runs at least a half hour too long. But it won't become a 1.5 hour show. Plus it's much easier to schedule the rest of the day with the program ending at the top of the hour.

FoxSports used to have a pregame show that run from 11am-12p EST. This was different from the FOX pregame show. This one was hosted by Chris Myers. I liked that one a lot, but no one knew about it so I think eventually they just scrapped it.

I actually kind of like CBS' show. If only because it's just football for the most part. Too often Fox feels like an audition tape for Bradshaw and his antics.

Don't expect TAFKAS to confirm but I have heard numerous times that basically nobody likes Berman and his over DONE act. There are several stories floating around about how he isn't the coolest of guy really. Google Chris Berman and leather pants. That's a funny one.

Re: Which pregame show do you watch?

Okay earlier i had said i watch espn and have watching some nfl network. I need to call comcast right now and cancel nfl network. On there show called nfl total access they did a preview of the 2006 season and rod woodson and marshall faulk both picked the skins to finish last in the divison. What did either one of those guys know about anything?

Didn't it used to be 90 minutes, from 11:30 til 1? I understand the programming part...it's funny you mention 12:15...isn't that about the time Jillian Barberie used to do the weather on the Fox show?

I never saw the Chris Myers show because the local affiliate plays Redskins related shows from 11 to 12.

Re: Which pregame show do you watch?

i flip between espn and fox..

i like the way espn covers just about everything under the sun and fox they have some personalities up there too.
cbs i don,t watch much they get too hung up on what the afc is doing rather than paying attention to the whole league in general.

Re: Which pregame show do you watch?

I don't watch any. I wake up at 9 am, shower, and drive to the sports bar around 9:30, get to the bar 9:50, order brunch and by the time I am done, the game is starting.


Life is good in the west coast like that.

Re: Which pregame show do you watch?

You seriously just admitted to eating brunch on game day?

On game day my typcial 'brunch' consists of brats, chicken wings, and Bud Light.
