    Eagles surprised me big time. Anybody got a chance to see their game? What a dominant score on the score.

    Good question. Maybe they were hoping to see Justin Fields like many of us. But it's Dalton stinking up the joint

    I don’t think I’ll ever be a fan of Lamar or any qb who runs exceptionally well but can’t pass. Annoying to even watch

    They really couldn't have tried to pick worse crew for this. Either that is the least desirable football broadcasting gig on the face of the earth or ESPN has such a political problem with talent placement that they have unintentionally parodied themselves.

    I actually didn't mind the Eli and Peyton broadcast on ESPN2. Thought they gave good information on what was going on. Some points they tried to be a little too funny but overall It was good IMO.

    Why the hell is Carr using a hardcount on the 1 yard line? Just snap it 4x to Jacobs and get a W.

    I think it was Boomer talking about it a couple years ago when everyone thought Romo was making the switch. ESPN isn't going to attract guys like him anymore because they put you through the ringer especially if you're a knowledgeable football guy. NFL Live 3 days a week, First Take and afternoon radio appearances.

    Tirico + Romo probably love working Saturday and Sundays and that's it.

    ESPN needs to give it to Tessitore and McElroy who do their college game of the week on ABC. They're great.

    I'm also sure their wokeism is slowly destroying them. I'll only watch the trash network if it's a game.

    My friend said the same thing about hard count. Bizarre.

    I tried the Peyton/Eli thing but I can't do the non-traditional broadcast. They should've set them up at the stadium and had a broadcast just like they would any other with crowd nose and not their goofy mugs on the screen so you only have the game on half the screen.

    watched the manning bros broadcast for a bit. Eli was a little stiff. Peyton was better but he talked too damn much.

    When they brought on Charles Barkley, he was very good. I wish more announcers approached it like him. On Derek Carr "Come on. Is he gonna overthrow these guys all damn night or what?"

    During the game the announcers spent almost an entire Ravens drive talking about substance abuse. I don't mean during the break or between plays, I mean while the game was being played. It was like watching football and listening to Oprah. Just terrible.

    Giants are looking like the SOJ Jets. Offsides on last second FG attempt that was NG, loses game on re-kick.
