You know what I hate is the other 31 teams braodcasters. Watching games on NFL network I get to hear all 31 other teams broadcasters.
I also don't like listening to the other teams annoucers during our games. They give you a hlf with our guys and a half with the others. It really sucks.

re: Is it just me or is Theismann an Idiot on TV

I agree that not having down and distance on display is AWFUL, plus did anyone else notice the friggin game clock wasn't up for most of the first half?? They need to tighten up.

theismann has been what he always have,consistent!not too good,not to bad.
i like him better than collingsworth,bryant gumbel,bill maas,and baldinger!
never thought i'd give these guys praise,but imho aikmann and sims are the two best announcers in the league now.

re: Is it just me or is Theismann an Idiot on TV

Jt is is a love him-or Hate em kind of guy.

But friggin Larry Michaels is horrid. Two years ago we were playing Dallas on MNF and I was in my car.

Idiot never announces down and distance for at least 15 minutes of air time!

Not how far they got on the last play, just "a nice run up the middle".

I emailed Redskins the next day and he emailed me back, personally, all defensive.

Said he Always announce D&D on every play.

Next sunday, in car again.

Same thing.

Amateur hour.

I like Joey T. in the booth though. Yeah he's annoying at times but overall he's a good color guy IMO. There are certainly those that are much worse.
Exactly. Give Joe some credit. You can point to his quick boot from MNF, but consider that he did Sunday Night Football for ESPN for YEARS, and the network was apparently satisfied with his work during that time period, or at least did not think he stood out for his incompetence. And to think that between Tirico, Kornheiser and Joe, it was JOE that got the boot?! What?! Tirico is a creep, (see deadspin.com for stories, which I can't link to b/c I don't have enough posts yet), Kornheiser is a blowhard, and Joe is the guy they fired. Go figure.

re: Is it just me or is Theismann an Idiot on TV

okay i searched/found this old thread instead of starting a new "what do y'all think of JoeyT" thread.

even though he won a SB as a redskin, i hate him. he sucks and he loves to hear himself talk. okay fine, most broadcasters can be chatterboxes, it's their job to fill time by talking. but joe just comes off as a know-it-all jerk who doesn't hesitate to take cheapshots and/or INJECT HIMSELF INTO THE STORY, which is the worst. "when i played..." "well what WE used to do..." "when i played for joe gibbs..."
that's fine occasionally in very specific situations.... but even the hated cowboys (Djohnston and Troy) rarely/never do it. moose is much better than troy, but neither brings up their glory days.

here's what reminded me:

i watched that 30 for 30 doc about Ricky last night. great stuff. he's out there, but i like him and glad he's done well.

but how 'bout Joe Theismann's over-the-top comments about Ricky Williams? i know the guy is kooky and made some stupid decisions as far as failing multiple drug tests... but JoeyT (in footage from when ricky played in canada) was like THIS GUY IS A DESPICABLE HUMAN BEING AND I"M ASHAMED TO BE IN THE SAME SENTENCE WITH HIM AS FOOTBALL PLAYER AND A TORONTO ARGONAUT" and all this stuff. just ridiculous blowhard hyperbole from up on some high horse. shut the fuck up already. i'd like Lawrence Taylor to go rip his fuckin voicebox out (speaking of ridiculous hyperbole).

I don't mind him...I'd rather listen to him than Jaworski.

Re: Is it just me or is Theismann an Idiot on TV

I am a big JoeT fan. My favorite player growing up. I may just be biased but I like listening to him on games also. Anyone on TV & radio as much as Joe is bound to have plenty of people who like and hate him.

Jaws can be an annoying chipmunkface, but he really know the league and does the film study, so his content is generally good but i get tired of the enthusiastic and overly dramatic raspy-voiced sentence enders about the National Football League.

Jaws was never a good QB. I used to laugh at him.
