How bad were Dick Enberg and Randy Cross?

I don't know if anyone else noticed but how god awful were the announcers from the game? They couldn't pronounce names right, their stats weren't correct. Randy Cross even made a statement saying "If anyone tuned in to see a boring game this isn't the game for you." I mean are you kidding me these guys should not be announcing NFL games. Just wanted to see if anyone else noticed how bad they were.

Enberg is old but Cross is just an idiot sometimes. Enberg used to be one of the best but age eventually takes its toll.

Re: How bad were Dick Enberg and Randy Cross?

Welcome aboard Skinsterps, Yeah these guys do not play off each other well. Enberg is a legend but it is about time for him to hang it up. Cross has always been bad about driving home an obvious point for whole quarters. I dont really care who announces our games as long as we win.

That isn't true, how about a couple of strippers?

It was truly nauseating. Worst part for me was their man-love for the Jags during the game.

I thought they did faily well. I know a few times Enberg got some names wrong, but I think they did OK. I think they were definately PRO SKINS through out the telecast. Cross was giving us credit for pushing the Jags around and kept saying how physical we were. I thought they did a decent job. I honostly was so into the game, they could have has pee wee herman and screech calling the game and it would have been ok.

Re: How bad were Dick Enberg and Randy Cross?

At any point did either of them refer to Mark Brunell as Steve Brunell? I think it was the first game last year that some announcer kept doing that for some odd reason. It's been a running joke with me and my friend's ever since.

Re: How bad were Dick Enberg and Randy Cross?

Here's another pitiful attempt to wax poetic and dramatize the Moss TD by les Carpenter of the post (see page 2 of the article)

Les Carpenter - Reading Between the Letters, Moss Finds the Answer for a Desperate Team - washingtonpost.com

Was Mathis even in on that last play? I thought Moss caught the ball between Brian Williams and Deon Grant.

I believe that was Daryl "Moose" Johnston who referred to Brunell as "Scott Brunell"

I think he was saying Steve Brunell and Scott Springs in the same game. At least Scott was Shawn's dad's name (I think) so I suppose that one can pass.

They were not very good so I switched to Sonny, Frank, & Larry. Boy have Sonny & Frank gone downhill. I couldnt listen to them either so I just muted the whole thing.

I think the skins need a completely new radio play by play team.

Re: How bad were Dick Enberg and Randy Cross?

Any game that is on CBS sucks, the game picture was too dark I couldnt see where the ball was on field goals, the play by play is horrible, it just seems old and outdated. I switched tvs 3 different times trying to get a clear picture, it seemed murky. Games that are on FOX, NBC, & ESPN always seem brighter and clearer. I hate when we play AFC teams, cause then we are usually on CBS. But the skins beating the crap out of the JAGS still makes my week!!!!!

Re: How bad were Dick Enberg and Randy Cross?

I think Enberg is showing his age unfortunately. He used to be one of the best around.

Cross is just a jackass, never cared for him much. He thought he was so right on the fumble, I was just laughing saying there was no way they should oveturn it since there was no definitive angle that showed conclusive evidence.

By the way, all those stats they kept throwing out about the Jags being 11-0 when this happens, or 21-1 when this happens, blah, blah. You can throw those out the window, thank you.

Re: How bad were Dick Enberg and Randy Cross?

I thought that they gave the props to the skins for man handling the Jags. The only point they made about the Jags is how good the D was and how we where having our way with them. I liked when one of them made the comment about how we blasted the D man ten yards back.

Nope. Moose kept correcting Dick Stockton when he'd say Scott Brunell. I actually like Moose as a color commentator, because he's low-key and straight to the point.

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 thought is ridiculous how they kept throwing out those absurd stats like, when Jacksonville is on the road in the month of October and the sun has gone down, they beat opponents, blah, blah....I was like why don't you just the Skins are going to lose and get it over with!!!
