NFL Playoffs Open Thread: Seahawks @ Packers

Saturday, January 12, 2008


Like it says above. Leave the worst of the announcing team in comments, and OMDQ will be here for Jags-Patriots after this one. Oh, and the picture is from the last time these teams met in the playoffs, when Al Harris made Matt Hasselbeck eat his "We'll take the ball and we're gonna score!"

Over/under for Favre Fellating by announcers: 15.

91 Comments:

Well, that was a bit of a disaster.

"There's a penalty marker down, and we're going to commercial without telling you what it is."

Johnstone is way too hyped up, over analyzing already.

When these announcers come up for air-let me know--they will not shut up!

Thankfully-"Moose" told us it's still early!?

Moose is on speed-he is killing the broadcast

And here comes the Favre-fellating

rabble rabble rabble.

I think Kenny, Moose, and Goose could use a lesson in non-verbal communication.

Y'know, I wish I could mute it, but the crowd is just plain too loud for me to watch this in silence.

Boy, look at that snow come down...

RandomRanting said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:04:00 PM  

2 plays in a row completely wrong. Siragussa saying Hasselback threw it away when it was just a wrong route by the WR, and Johnstone saying Hasselbacks progress was stopped when he was actually still good and then sacked afterwards. These guys are so horrible, couldn't they find anyone else???

MW said...

I can't stand that snotty little bitch in the Caravan commercial. Ewww!!

Perfect game to start new invention-"announcer mute only".This is BRUTAL!

kel said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:10:00 PM  

I like how they said the refs were right, then said Favre is right. Bandwagon much?

RandomRanting said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:13:00 PM  

And, for the record, can someone, anyone please note "If GB loses this challenge, they'll only have 1 time out left."

RandomRanting said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:15:00 PM  

Exactly random--that was a terrible spot-the ref pulled the ball back

kel said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:16:00 PM  

"[Favre threw to] 4 different receivers on this play." That seems a little illegal, doesn't it?

RandomRanting said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:16:00 PM  

"Homefield advantage"?-they had to use a challenge to get 2 feet on the spot ?!

kel said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:18:00 PM  

"That was a great move by Brett Favre to lobby for the challenge!" - Moose

SLURP SLURP SLURP.

Make sure to give him a tickle, too.

Signal to Noise said...

Somewhere, a Fox executive is sighing in relief that the Packers are making a game of this.

And seriously, I love Favre, but he wasn't telling McCarthy anything the guys upstairs weren't saying.

RandomRanting said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:21:00 PM  

Excellent point by Siragussa to always follow the full back on a running play (snicker)

mw said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:24:00 PM  

Siragusa has literally given me a headache-I'm surpirised they didn't credit Favre for the block on the TD

kel said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:24:00 PM  

59 penalties this SEASON? That's unbelievable.

RandomRanting said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:25:00 PM  

No, Siragussa gave credit even before the XP to the fullback who didnt block anyone until Grant was across the line, but Johnstone ignores the replay to support Siragussa's wrong analysis...typical poor announcing.

Maske Writer said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:27:00 PM  

Ithought it was just me-number 30 was stsnding around on that td--moose and goose luv each other

kel said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:32:00 PM  

Remember kids....Brett Favre is the coach of this team, not Mike McCarthy.

21-14....let the blowout commence.

Anonymous said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:33:00 PM  

Right Kel, Siragussa thought he had a great point and the replay showed he didnt, but Moose ignores the replay and the intelligence of the viewer and supports the announcer. Just poor.

MW said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:33:00 PM  

I may have to verbally fellate Brett Favre myself. That TD throw was gorgeous.

Signal to Noise said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:36:00 PM  

Thats just fine, S2N. That throw WAS gorgeous. Unlike that last snap. Seahawks look shell shocked.

RandomRanting said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:39:00 PM  

And THAT is why I hate kicker rules. Its almost impossible to block kicks given the likelihood of being called for cheapie penalties.

RandomRanting said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:40:00 PM  

randomranting - both rules regarding late hits on the QB and the kicker have been enforced to an absurd degree.

Signal to Noise said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:42:00 PM  

Well now the cheering will get worse in the booth for the Packers. Come on Moose, don't so sad the Seahawks are driving

Rob said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:43:00 PM  

neither moose or goose mention the poor coaching decision to go for a punt block there-no reason for it

KEL said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:44:00 PM  

Someone please explain to me two things. First, why the hell does Fox continue to give the Goose carte blanche with the microphone?

And second, how can anyone actually watching this game justify saying the comment "Shaun Alexander is really running well today." I'm too lazy to take a screen shot of my computer that shows his 6 carries for 6 yards.

Bstone said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:46:00 PM  

Why cut away from the game to show Siragussa talking?

MW said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:48:00 PM  

Kenny: "How many layers are you wearing, Tony?"
Goose: "Six."

No reports on whether that includes the personal insulation (read: blubber) or not.

Signal to Noise said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:51:00 PM  

Great Johnstone, say how fast the LB's are and show them getting beat in the same play.

Richard said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:52:00 PM  

Siragussa he shoulda ugh up ug step ah weh jaj....

MW said...
Jan 12, 2008, 5:55:00 PM  

this announcer is far up F A R V E rear-end it is pitiful, Bret this Bret that, PUKE :)@

PyroPysco said...

Even with Goose and Moose, I'm enjoying this game. I wonder how much better it would have been without 'em.

This game is a classic----yelling by Moose and Goose really Livens it up???-terrible announcers--they think we tune in to listen to them

kel said...

Yes, we can here you Siragussa....unfortunately.

Richard said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:03:00 PM  

Well, that was fun. Especially with the old Favre wing-it play.

RandomRanting said...

Wonder if the camera will follow the Golden Boy all the way to the locker room to film his taking a halftime dump

What happened to the Fox "Greenbay inexperience" issue-they seemed so excited when Seattle took the early lead

kel said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:12:00 PM  

DOes anyone actually think that Girls Father goes to US celluar to have his mail read? Is he a moron...

I bet Goose goes to US celluar to have his mail read

The depressing thing about how bad the Fox announcers are is how good Fox is at other things, like popping the graphic to show us where the ball is, since the snow makes it hard to tell. Whoever suggested that deserves a raise.

RandomRanting said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:21:00 PM  

great play by Harris on pass-yet Moose sticks with producer theme of Hassleback complaining

kel said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:23:00 PM  

Can a dude that fumbled twice in the first 2 minutes of a game and put his team in a 14 point hole go on to be game MVP?

Mal said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:27:00 PM  

great catch my jennings--but emphasize "Brett Favre"--who threw it up for grabs

kel said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:27:00 PM  

turn the crowd cheering up and MOOSE DOWN-PLEASEEEEEEEEE

kel said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:28:00 PM  

Someone better get back into the locker room and tell the Seattle D that the 2nd half started.

RandomRanting said...

Peter King just ejaculated on himself.

Actually a good Stat from Albert - Farves only Td pass to a RB

Listen for the difference tonight with the AFC broadcast-crowd sounds like they in your living room

kel said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:30:00 PM  

Kel - The Farve to Jennings pass was a good throw by Farve and a good catch...He didnt throw it up for grabs

Anonymous said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:30:00 PM  

I agree that Favre could have thrown 3 picks and fumbled already and the announcers would still be fawning all over him. But - he deserves whatever praise he gets the way is playing today. The "good Favre" has definitely showed up so far.

Mal said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:31:00 PM  

I wish Moose would "settle down' and let them "make a play"

kel said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:33:00 PM  

Ah, and here come the flags.

RandomRanting said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:34:00 PM  

Ok---I agree but they never even mentioned the great catch-by Jennings

kel said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:35:00 PM  

Where are the bikini girls today?

Mal said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:35:00 PM  

...wow, a joke so bad that even the commentators seemed stunned.

RandomRanting said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:38:00 PM  

great joke by Moose-"12th man"--and Goose agrees

Goose waited all day for that lame "eletric pants" comment

kel said...

Holy...that snow is REALLY coming down.

RandomRanting said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:45:00 PM  

Instead of making a point-Goose takes the heat when they bring up his bad weather forecast-weather is now a major factor

kel said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:46:00 PM  

What are these camera angles?

RandomRanting said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:48:00 PM  

was that yellow line the goal line or first down--Fox is losing it

RandomRanting said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:55:00 PM  

They must have to use closer camera shots so they can see thru the snow.

Mal said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:56:00 PM  

The comment from Goose earlier: "you have to put your hand down and line up behind your hand to make sure you aren't offside". As opposed to lining up in front of your hand?

Mal said...
Jan 12, 2008, 6:58:00 PM  

They forgot to write snoball fight comments for these geniuses--"Thats not fair too close"?BRUTAL

Where's Phil Simms when you need him?

Geeze, how many people would have guess a couple hours ago that the Packers would be winning in a blowout?

RandomRanting said...
Jan 12, 2008, 7:04:00 PM  

Kenny just said these guys are going to be calling the pro bowl. Like we need another reason to not tune in.

Anonymous said...

Is he over 200 yds yet? What a bounce back.

Mal said...
Jan 12, 2008, 7:05:00 PM  

Favre's rating is 148.5. Just for reference.

RandomRanting said...
Jan 12, 2008, 7:06:00 PM  

is that 200 yards rushing--and they show fatman in the snowplow???!!!

KEL said...
Jan 12, 2008, 7:06:00 PM  

Tony needs to stay inside the truck. That thing was leaning hard to one side. I like how the crowd boos Goose when he got out of that thing.

Jan 12, 2008, 7:07:00 PM  

it is gettimg MORE painful listening to these idiots now-Moose gets excited after the snowplow ride??/YEAAH!!!
