Ah, that was the one. Reminded me of the MNF curse "When Parcells is winning in the 4th qtr he's 73-0"

Well, not now he's not M*********r!

I was at a bar, so I didn't hear much of the game announcers. I used to be a big fan of Dick Stockton until last year's said incident. I'm not a big fan of any announce crews. Buck and Aikman are tolerable, as are Gumbel and Simms. The rest I tend to ignore unless they say something ignorant.

CBS blows when it comes to coverage. I still don't understand why they don't have all their games in HD. Fox is able to do it, and ESPN/ABC has almost all their college and NFL games in HD...
I hear you on the HD thing.

I guess I've become a HD snob, if a game isn't in HD I won't watch it. Unless it was the Skins of course.

But yeah, I really don't understand why all the games can't be in HD.

Re: How bad were Dick Enberg and Randy Cross?

Unfortunately, I don't have Sunday Ticket...so if CBS has the national doubleheader, I'm sometimes forced to watch a game non-HD. But it blows. Even on my 32 inch non-HD TV, the HD channels (thank you Comcast for allowing me the HD DVR and not pay for HD channels) are 100 times better.

I think the skins need a completely new radio play by play team.
You mean Sonny & Sam? Frank got booted for Larry. Frank, BTW was the best of the lot...too bad.

Sam has been incoherent since the late 70's...too many "lead with the helmet" tackles.

They're cheap. The cameras cost a lot and CBS is cheap.

They couldn't have been worse than Huff. He kept screaming yesterday, "Chris Cooley is hurt. He's hurt! He's hurt! He got hurt trying to make a tackle. This is huge!"

Of course, never mind that Cooley doesn't play D, and he was standing on the sidelines when Curry Burns was the one who got hurt.

Are Sonny and Sam getting old or are they just drunk?

yeah man, senility has long set in. Sonny after the Moss OT grab: "that's a big play zzzzzzz"

Sam, I've been told by very reliable sources, dozes off to such an extent that they shut his mic off because he starts snoring.

Jeez I know they don't want to kick a legend out of the booth but c'mon, if the man can't do his job anymore it's time to go.

I know people love these guys and they're legends, but I've never been able to stomach them for an entire game.

I'm just glad I have the Sunday Ticket so I don't have to listen to them anymore.

Re: How bad were Dick Enberg and Randy Cross?

I don't know these guys very well, but the one that doesn't sound like Al Michaels was a douchebag. I swear if I had to hear him say, "That wasn't a fumble" one more fucking time I was gonna drive up to Landover and deck him. I mean, it did give us something to laugh about... (when scobee kicked the FG that almost missed, you heard wind in a mike, as if he were in the stands blowing on the ball to keep it in) but if I hadn't been watching with my step-dad on his directv I wouldve listened to Sonny and Sam.

Re: How bad were Dick Enberg and Randy Cross?

Sonny and Sam...combine age with scotch and cigars, and you have your reason why they are the way they are. At least Sonny is semi-coherent throughout the whole game. They obviously wake Sam up for defensive sets...

Re: How bad were Dick Enberg and Randy Cross?

They were dreadful. They referred to Ladell Betts as Clinton Portis at least three times. They said it was third down when it was 4th at least once. They said that the Jags had made a first down when they were almost five yards short. The only adjective they could muster for the Jags were that they were "teale". "If they're in teale, they are going to hit you hard. They're a teale swarm. He's been a teale blur all game." AWFUL!!!!
