NFL Open Thread - Week 17 Early Games

Sunday, December 28, 2008

A note: Sorry to play absent host, but I'm indisposed for most of the day due to holiday-related travel, and AA may be in the same boat. However, I've set up threads for all the games today, and I'm planning at least two live-blogs next weekend to make it up to you.

OK, doubleheaders for both stations on this final weekend. (The maps have been hyperlinked to the network names.)

Oakland @ Tampa Bay -Kevin Harlan, Rich Gannon
Cleveland @ Pittsburgh - Gus Johnson, Steve Tasker
Tennessee @ Indianapolis - Ian Eagle, Solomon Wilcots
Kansas City @ Cincinnati - Bill Macatee, Steve Beuerlein

Fox:


Carolina @ New Orleans - Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston, Tony Siragusa
NY Giants @ Minnesota - Dick Stockton, Brian Baldinger
St. Louis @ Atlanta - Sam Rosen, Tim Ryan
Chicago @ Houston - Matt Vasgersian, J.C. Pearson

Vasgersian is terrible. After a flag he announced "and here is our first flag of the day!" even though it was the second, then he informed us that the ref would soon be announcing offsetting penalties. It was a 15-yarder against Houston. Wrong again, Matt!

@ James, we'll see.....I'm saving my energy for the playoffs.

If anyone wants to step up then go ahead.

"At this end of the field, the ball gets blown off to the right. At the other end, it goes the OTHER WAY!" - Dan Dierdorf on the missed field goals


Umm.....Lindell's missed field goal at that OTHER END was blown wide right.

is anyone watching New England V Buffalo?

these winds are ridiculous. Buffalos field goal attempt was going wide left then the wind caught and brought it allt he way across to wide right. and Gostowski just missed a 26 yarder.

looks a pre-forward pass game, New England before the miss ran 12 straight running plays on the drive. no pass attempts at all.

Dick Stockton just told America that the only way that anyone in the Metrodome can get the Bears score is on a transistor radio. Dick its not 1974, and I 2nd the Fire Dick Stockton comment.

@SSR, I think Dan meant the wind was going in the opposite direction. These swirling winds are crazy.

The Bills just bested the Eagles in worst clock management of the season.

If you have more than 5 guys on your halftime show, the least you can do is get facts correct.

First, Marino called Carolina's Dante Wesley "Dante Wells" after his TD return and then Cowher tells us that Jamarcus Russell threw his second TD pass to put the Raiders up 14-7 on the Bucs when they JUST showed Michael Bush rush for a 4-yd TD in the highlights.

Poor coverage CBS. Poor.

You can tell Brad Childress was an Andy Reid assistant with that play call.

why don't JB and Curt do the highlights? why do the 'players' have to do them? bradshaw is always 10 sec. behind. i can't understand a word sharpe or cowher say. marino botches names. boomer is the only good one.
if players doing highlights is sooo important, why don't howie, JJ, and tooth gap do them?

Wow. A 3rd down punt by Cassel. Never thought I'd see one.

Dick Stockton is senile. First, on a random play in the 3rd quarter, where AP fought for a first down, he yells, “HE DIDN’T GET OUT OF BOUNDS!!”

Then, on that TD, he says, “How about that response from Jackson after the INT?” Uhhh…Dick…Berrian had no one around him for 20 yards–the defender, a rookie reserve CB, fell down–if Jackson had missed that throw, he should have been hung from the Metrodome roof by his genitals.

Only if Old Man Ford keeps the interim front office structure, as he's said he was thinking of doing.
