Beth Mowin's Calling The Game Yestrday

Recommended Posts

Obviously Ms. Nowans did not play the game but her performance behind the mic yesterday was spot on. Just goes to show when you do your homework, demand everything of yourself and insist on being the best you can get there. Nice job!

There was a thread that focused on her calling the game last week.

In it, I was critical, not of her knowledge, or likability, but  of her voice, and delivery.

I watched the game yesterday, and am taking this opportunity to back peddle. 

I thought she was good, and her voice didn't grate on me as it did in her initial broadcast.

I went in prepared to give her the benefit of the doubt having seen others on here were not singing her praises and thought she did a good job.  There are certainly a few out there who are worse than her.

I'm pretty good at ignoring the talking heads unless I need something double checked.. I didn't notice her, I did notice Jay Feeley reliving his glory years a bit too often. I thought he was going to tell us how far he could throw the ball at some point..

I honestly don't pay too much attention to who calls the game. I kinda just zone out and watch. Unless it's Don Fisher pre-season bad.

i disagree, i thought the whole broadcast was crap.  Neither even seemed to know the rules of the game and were incredibly biased with their commentary.

I thought she was not good. Even going so far as mentioning NCAA when she meant NFL. She was confused and incoherent at times. Not good.

 Man,  the tone of her voice was putting me and my wife to sleep. I don't know her well but was she a commentator for golf or bowling or something like that?

I thought the lady did fine....she didn't detract from the game as much as Chud's second half play calls.

It was a mixed bag. For the most part she did okay, but she did make a lot of mistakes, like confusing names of the opposing teams. Sometimes her enunciation was annoying... And quite often she couldn't hide her excitement for a positive play on the Browns' side.

She did a fine job. Hopefully she learns from this game and the next game and goes on to have a wonderful career as a sports commentator. I find it weird that this is a topic.

I think she did very well, but Tony Romo was terrible yesterday.

I don't understand OP's subtley expressed viewpoint.  Am I supposed to feel proud that a woman is in the booth?

 

Sigh....I don't care. 

 

Although I didn't hear this game, in past games I found her to be as technically competent as most announcers.  I think her voice and delivery is not attractive to listen to, but I also felt that way about Dan Dierdorf, Curt Gowdy, Don Criqui, and Howard Cosell back in the day.

 

And Vin Scully used to annoy the crap out of me during baseball games.

Then why comment?

 

I didn't think there was any subtlety to the OP at all. He posted about the female commentator doing her first NFL game. Yes, she's a female, and yes, that's the reason for the post in the first place. No one said you or anyone else was under obligation to feel proud or any other way about it.

More to the point, I don't like Beth Mowins' voice or the way she talks, so I didn't enjoy listening to her call the game. And I could be nitpicky about some of the things she said wrong (NCAA instead of NFL, she referred to Brissett as Kizer at least once, etc.), but every announcer gets stuff wrong from time to time. I think Feeley maybe held back from correcting her on air, or maybe he didn't notice...

I can forgive any mistake by Mowins since she is not a regular on CBS or NFL coverage but when someone is a NFL regular and your job is to provide Color that is unacceptable 

 JMO and maybe my view is stilted a bit since my Dad once provided Color for my local HS

She was fine.  After about 2-3 minutes, I don't really notice the announcers anyway.  After the average game, if you asked me who announced it, I probably couldn't even tell you.  I suppose I sort of watch it like I would live in the stadium.

I watched every game like I am breaking down Game film(the only things I do not have is a play chart, notebook and player chart)

On a separate issue, I was forced to listen to Bob Lamey.  I was never a fan because of his constant mistakes, especially having to back track on what he originally called.  "Caught by TY, TOUCHDOWN....No, it was incomplete!"  That sort of thing.  But yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised.  He cut down on his mistakes quite a bit.

He also called Pagano out for not challenging a scoring play.

Not to that degree, but that is sort of what I was getting at.  I don't worry much about what the announcers are saying, just form my own opinions on things.

Yea I agree completely, it did seem at times they both had stock in Cleveland or something.  I'm pretty sure both of them are also still confused on why Pagano didn't challenge the TD.  Listening to them was about as bad as having to listen to Collinsworth taking any possible opportunity to bring up Tom Brady.

Grew up a coach's kid and started watching game film very early in HS(I also did a little spotting as a kid) and broke down Game film and developed Offensive play charts as a coach. Since I struggled to get on the depth chart( my health) it was my way of making the team better

Lamey is easily one of the best announcers of all-time IMO.

I did catch that, that was also nonsensical.
