That is the Devil's Trifecta.

Theisman won't shut up; Riggo will link every negative play to Danny Boy's dark heart and Doc will make sure that every Redskin is called a "baller" twice a game.

I'd rather undergo abdominal surgery than listen to that trio...

Re: Larry, Sonny, and Sam- the radio trio must go

I like Larry Michaels as a play caller. I think Doc could be a real good color guy. Honestly this combo doesnt sound too bad to me.

I think Riggo would be aweful. I cant stand Thiesman during the preseason and couldnt imagine what it would be like if you could only hear him and couldnt even watch the game. I dont know anything about Tim Brant.

Do most radio stations use 2 or 3 guys?

So during my workout I listened to the Redskins radio broadcast with the espn radio app on my phone.

I've been mentioning it here and there on this board for a while, but today sent me over the edge with these morons. There are so many epic fails surrounding the Redskins, and their broadcast team is one of them.

As Skins fans, we're all used to discussing the possibility of heads rolling within the organization at this time of year. Larry, Sonny, and Sam are downright pathetic. Larry Michael as a play-by-play guy is flat and not descriptive at all. He does such a poor job verbally painting the on-field picture for the listeners.

There is no insight whatsoever provided by Sonny and Sam. They don't offer anything of value to a game broadcast. Me and a few of my buddies could without question deliver a better broadcast each week. Sam in particular just sounds like a slurring, drunk old man. I mean today he called a safety blitz a corner blitz and said "whatever" when Sonny corrected him, he doesn't know the rules, he doesn't know the players' names (he refers to Kemoeatu as "koo-ooo"), and when Kellen Winslow caught a TD, Huff said "boy, he's been around a long time, hasn't he?" To which Larry Michael replied, "that's his son."

I laughed out loud at least a half a dozen times during the second half. It's embarrassing to have such a pathetic trio broadcasting such a pathetic on-field product.

Sonny and Sam were great Redskins to be sure, but they are getting by on that and nothing else right now. Do you agree that this gaggle of idiots should be replaced? And if so, who would you pick to replace them?
LOL. I've never listened to them but I want him to stay around forever. The comic relief seems hilarious. I wonder if his diaper was wet when he said that?

Its the worst. I was on a road trip and we decided to radio stream the game. Everyone thought the crew were a joke.

Doc only says corny things like "these guys want it more! " and "this isn't ballet, punch them! " and "they're fightin ' hard! ".

Re: Larry, Sonny, and Sam- the radio trio must go

The iPAD app that lets you listen to Sonny and Sam and adjust the TV to match the sound is called "tunedin radio. Their broadcast is far ahead of cable TV or HD TV, but you can pause the app to synchronize the sound. Only problem is that the dumb techies at their radio station change their delay every time they have commercial breaks on the radio so they can get their commercials in. And that means you have to resynch the radio every time they come back from commercial. After a while it's just not worth the effort.
