Is it just me, or is this guy a complete douche bag?

It's definitely not just you. Cris Carter just can't accept that there are other receivers playing the game today that make him look like nothing more than a mediocre player. He had a great career, but just can't get past the fact that players like Fitzgerald, CJ and Roddy White would embarrass him if he were on the field today. He was good IN HIS DAY, but his day has passed.

I think he should be taken off the air. His opinions and projections are garbage.

Agreed.

Chris Carter was a good WR, and is, currently, a below average commentator (at best) with outdated and, often, piss poor opinions.

A self centered WR...? Kind of an oxymoron. RB's usually are very complementary of their O line, giving them all kinds of praise and gifts, because no O line blocking, no RB running. The same is true for the WR's. No O line blocking, no time for QB to pass, no WR catching a pass. For some reason beyond me WR's tend to think it is all about them.

BTW, everyone on a football team can make a name by making great individual plays, except the O linemen. The O line functions as a whole unit, meaning they function in anonymity. Almost the only time you learn an O lineman's name is when he screws up. (There are exceptions.) It is important for the skill players (meaning those who don't have to block every play) to acknowledge the debt they owe to the O linemen for their success... and huge freaking paychecks.

I watched some tape on Collinsworth. I wasn't impressed. :wink:

Is it just me or are there no good NFL TV announcers/analysts? I don't want to sound like an old man, but all I hear when I turn on the TV audio is blatantly obvious "analysis," stupid cliches, and hype. Fox is the worst offender but CBS/NBC aren't much better.

I think Cris Collinsworth is really good. He's the best one in my opinion.

I can't stand Collinsworth as a play by play guy. He is better in his roll on inside the NFL on HBO.

I couldn't agree more! Particularly with the lesser known announcers. In an attempt to be 'edgy' and make a name for themselves all they've done is become obnoxious and argumentative. It's really gotten out of hand.

I really like John Lynch and Brian Baldinger as announcers. Solomon Wilcots from CBS is a pretty likeable guy too.

Now Joe Buck, that's a different story. I hate how FOX pushes him and Aikman as their big show guys like they're really any different from the others. They're far more annoying and haven't really earned that spot.

Ian Eagle and Boomer Esiason are the best in the business IMHO.

a little derailed here but i hate the lions game combo of thom brennan (sp?) and brian billick. these guys arent even accurate describing what just happened on a play ie was the pass complete or incomplete. thom had a few incomplete nonsensical sentences and the only thing billick said that i thought had any value was when he criticized fauria for spiking away his 1st NFL TD ball.

While we're talking about douchebag TV sportscasters, I'd like to throw Stephen A. Smith's name in the mix. With a mix of arrogance and unprofessionalism, he's the complete package.
