Re: Sam Huff

Long overdue. Hope he enjoys retirement, and now he can sit back and watch games without having to do a "job".

Re: Sam Huff

Honestly they need to clean house. Sonny has some moments of lucidness but can sound like a moron more often then not. I have never been a big fan of Larry for some reason.

To me we should have the best broadcast team in the NFL but we are middle of the road or bad at best.

Re: Sam Huff

Damn shame. I've always thought Sam Huff is one of the best color commentators out there...

As long as Frank Herzog was there yes , once he was forced out for Larry Michael then you could see Sam Huff struggle with his broadcast duties. Still one hell of a nice guy and a hell of a football player, best of luck to him and his family.

IS? Or WAS? In the '80's he was awesome. IMO The last few years, he has been painful. Sometimes it was like he had no idea about the game on the field (like talking about what a great play a defensive player made when we actually were on offense). And he would launch into series of meaningless non-sequiturs.

Back in the day, there was none better. He was eloquent, insightful, and sometimes really funny.

Re: Sam Huff

Geez, I thought I've been pretty vocal for the past several years of my distaste for Huff. He was even lousy during the later Herzog years. I mean really, how many times did I do a smack down and mention Huff? His departure is looooooong overdue

So much for my attempt at a sarcastic post

I agree. Sam & Sonny need to to go (well Sonny now). I mean great Redskins, I'm sure great guys, but they're not good anymore... I'm not a huge fan of Larry, but I don't think he's anything particularly bad either. He's an OK play by play guy, but just not my cup of tea. I think he might benefit from some newer guys in the booth though. I'd like to see Doc go up top, someone else replace Sonny and then new sideline guy.

We'll see though.

Your trolling failed. I got the joke though.

Re: Sam Huff

I'd rework the whole thing. I don't much care for Doc. Nice guy but something about his work seems bleh to me. I'd really like to see it be someone who isn't just spewing slick niceties the whole time.

Time for Portis to take over.





Not serious, but it would be entertaining...when we could actually decipher his words.
