He even had a poll on sportsnation: will the redskins be the worst team in the NFL?

And more often than not, he contradicts himself when he tries to make a point- saying one thing and then the opposite in one breath. And when he is wrong, which is alot, he tries to backtrack and to try to distract by saying he meant something else.
He takes controversial stands on issues to increase the drama surrounding his show because that helps fuel listenership (there has got to be a better word than that doesnt there?). He hatted on Rodgers forever even when rodgers was lighting it up because it annoyed people, he loved Mark Sanchez when noone else did now that people are liking him he is switching sides. It has somewhat become his schtick.

I listen to him because I think he has the best interviews of anyone on the ESPN line up.

And if we are talking best NFL guys on ESPN how are we not talking about Mark schlereth? He gives plenty of good insight, relevant stories from his playing days and seems like a good dude.

Greenie seems like a nice enough guy, but damn he's just blabbering away and usually about nothing. No substance.

Sorry, Skip Bayless has already patented that. He needs to find another gig.

It's the worst franchise in the league according to him and doesn't like the direction it's going. Its the only team he said negative things about If that's not singling out a team, I don't know what is.
You wouldn't feel that way if he was talking about say the Bills...but anyway, I guess what bothers you is that even though he had the Niners and Bengals tied with the Redskins this year for worst record, he spent more time talking about the Redskins?

Schlereth's solid. The best ex-Redskins player at ESPN though is Ross Tucker

I enjoy Schlereth a lot. Cowherd on the other hand is unbearable. Something about his voice makes me want to swerve my vehicle into oncoming traffic.

No what bothers me is the ONLY team he said anything negative about in these 2 instances was the redskins. Like I said - he was describing himself surprisingly optimistic with the outlook of teams that one day. And on another separate day and instance he created the poll and discussed it on his show to vote with darren Woodson. ( poll: will the redskins be the worst team in the NFL?)

U have to admit it's a slanted poll.

He doesn't create the polls...and again, you wouldn't be worried if the choice was the Bengals against the field

Re: Yet another reason why Cris Carter is a moron

Thought I'd throw my

Carter, complete f-ing moron. I hope he never gets in the Hall.

I remember one year for the Jimmy V Foundation auction there was a package to come to ESPN and break down film with Jaws. If that ever comes up again I would certainly bid on that. Dilfer, Schlereth and MW are also very good. Agree with SS on Golic, he's hand-cuffed on M & M, but when he does the occasional college game he's very good.

Hoge is irritating, but he does some good breakdowns.

Not a Chucky fan, his QB breakdowns to me are a lot more style over substance. He is entertaining and good in the MNF booth though and the team is very good for the first time in a while.

Mayock on NFLN and Aikman are solid. Buck irritates the hell out of me, as does Collinsworth. I don't mind Joey T., you just have to realize he's a homer going in.

Anyone not mentioned....meh.

EDIT: Cowherd is annoying at times, but he's pretty good on NCAA FB.

I would assume he has some creative control over what goes on his show to discuss. And of course he votes- yes for redskins being the worst team - while Woodson says no they won't be. He rubs it in when the small majority (tilted by how the poll is asked) says no the redskins won't be the worst team -- by saying well it's the redskins against the entire field of 31 other teams anyway.

And obviously I wouldnt care if he said the same about the bengals because I'm not bengals fan and they actually might be the worst team in football.

No worries. I mean I agree with the initial post. CC was being ridiculous not including Calvin Johnson in the top 5 WRs. But what's worse, and what's kind of typical of him, is that he couldn't just say he was wrong and just forget CJ. No, instead he has to go on a huge nonsensical tangent. But he does not represent the thoughts of every analyst at the company, and neither does Cowherd...and Cowherd doesn't create the polls

Going back to Greeny, this was by far my favorite Greeny moment.

If anything, I think ESPN is getting more props in here than anything. Just picking on a few select village idiots. :P
