Chris Collinsworth

He’s fine. Praises them when he should and also points out their flaws and their bad plays.

 

Cant be roses all the time.

Nah, he definitely doesn't like the Colts, he's made no bones about it over the decades, just refuses to elaborate on it

It sure sounded like he liked Luck to me.  Finally we have some serious killers around him that makes us ferocious in Big Q & Leonard.  We are finally a complete team.  Luck begins his ascension to the mountain top this postseason.

I hate that guy runs his mouth and half the time doesn't have a clue what he is talking about.

I think they had a bunch more Derrick Henry talking points and graphics that they wanted to use...but the Colts had other ideas.

Did anyone have a count on how many times he brought up the Pat's and his new love mahomes?

 

Yeah.....

 

And what have the Pats,  and Pat Mahomes ever done to deserve any praise?!?

 

What's with that guy?

 

Dear God,  Goodness Gracious....       :facepalm:

Do you realise how often you try to argue with people?

 

And to answer your question, nothing is wrong with talking about them but he finds more ways to bring them up than any other commentator. And if you dont like my answer real free to ignore my posts.

He's nothing but a talking head. He says stupid stuff just to hear himself talk. I seriously can't stand the guy

he never shuts up... he's like a wind-toy that never un-winds.  he has something planned to say after and during plays and sometimes I just want to watch the game.  but he was prepared and he IS a good announcer....just not my style.  give me madden every game.

His job is to talk between plays. Literally. That's what he's there for.

He's one of my favorite color guys.  Not even close imo as to how he can dissect a play quickly.  Venturi is a good one as well, but most color guys are just parroting what you just saw.

Yes, I remember when we played the Jets in the playoffs the recent one we lost he was all about the Jets and nothing for us. So his hatred definitely showed in that game.

Not sure if it’s Cris Colinsworth or the mainstream media although I’m not a fan of his either way. 

 

They clearly thought Derick Henry was going to run all over the Colts defense like they were the Colts defense of old. Not the case. I mean they had a train graphic to go with all of the Henry references. The guy started like half way through the season.

 

We weren’t sure if Andrew Luck was ever going to play football again at the beginning of the season, yet Henry was the focus? Barely mention of Lucks CPOY/MVP caliber season OR Leonard’s ridiculous play. Glad to come away with the win to let the play on the field do the talking albeit in a sloppy win, a win none the less.

I didn’t noticed it if he did.  I have no love for Collinsworth but he was dialed in on this game tonight I thought.

maybe every so often, every blue moon or so, let a play tell some of the story. (Madden, Keith Jackson, and some of the other greats did that).

I actually thought it was one of his better games he has called.  I think most of the Pat's connections he made tonight were semi acceptable in terms of connections like vinny, vrabel, and Dion Lewis.  But at the same time that is what he does, looks for reasons to bring of the pats.

Yeah but like you said it was legit tonight, I know what you mean though, there are times he forces it.  The only thing he said tonight that I thought was forced was the line about vrabel taking away your top two options in the red zone like New England.  Other than that I thought he was fine tonight.  I agree it was one of his better games.  I am no fan of his but I’ll give the devil his due tonight.

He'll have a good piece of info one minute, then completely erroneous one the next. The one that struck out to me tonight was when he said that we have a ton of $$ invested in our OL. No...we have 3 rookie deals, likely a guy at or near vet min, and Costanzo being the only one with a big contract. Now draft capital? Absolutely, but not salary $$'s.

I mentioned it in game thread. When Colts got their first pick, which was big at the time, Collonsworth seemed like he got sad and the wind disappeared from his sail. Othet than that I think je was fine.

 

Just want to add I think the broadcast was good.

The only bad thing I would say about the commentators tonight is they talked a bit much about Henry, but considering he is 95% of the Titans offense they didnt have much choice.

they need to reboot the SNF crew...

 

they need to bring the crowd in when the games get slow or aren't fun (cutting to and talking about Frank and Vrable during there playing days and how many SB's they won isn't what i call insight nor does it show how talented a coach they are. (I'd like to see        more diagrams and dissecting of the plays)

They need to speed up the tempo...(games shouldn't be so slow)

they need to bring in college coaches into the fold as color commentators (it would provide more awareness on what's going on along with seeing some of the up incoming coaches and personnel outside of the game.

The NFL as a whole needs to be less rigid and resistant to change. The NBA is all about making the game better. With the young players and a young audience, they want to grab I'm shocked by some of this old man old school thinking they use. Please remove Chris and Al Micheals from SNF or just any football on TV in general so tired of seeing the combovers and prune-faced know it alls on TV.

The broadcasting crews have been going down hill for everyone. I've always found Collinsworth bad, can't stand to listen to him talk. But compared to the ESPN MNF mess, he is ear candy.

he said the Colts have invested a lot of money in their offensive line....then went on to say how Glow and Evan were taken off the street. saying Glow wasnt playing well in Seattle (he wasnt) but who's making tons of money on the oline outside of AC? and his contract is a bargain if you look at it from a team-building standpoint.

I just try to point out complete nonsense whenever I find it.

 

As for you,  I’m completely unaware that I’ve ever given you a hard time.  This is an Internet fans message board,  people disagree all the time.   If you can’t handle it you could try growing thicker skin.

Announcers aren’t really for diehard fans.  They are for people who are just sorta casual fans, especially the National guys.

true but this crew is like watching groundhog day every Sunday night... I guess it would be funny if we were Bill Murry but we aren't Bill Murry in this movie just a bystander along for the train wreck.

Nonsense?  I'm sorry my sarcastic post offended you so much, but is it really non sense when everyone in this thread except you knows exactly what Collinsworth does?

 

Thicker skin? You are the one who is getting defensive when I called you out on what you all ways do.  If you can't handle the truth, feel free to ignore my posts.  I'll still be able to sleep at night.

But they shouldn't make watching the game more annoying.  

The best announcers are the ones that know when to shut up.  

  

Just having game sound is much more enjoyable.  

Get rid of the refs and I think the NFL has a winning product.

You honestly think I don’t know who and what Chris Collinsworth does?

 

I just don’t get offended when a broadcaster trying to appeal to a nationwide audience happens to reference one of the most successful franchises in NFL history or talks about the hottest new quarterback in the game.

 

The fact that a number of people are offended doesn’t surprise me.   As I’ve repeatedly stated, this is a passionate fan base...   just not a very well informed.

 

If Collinsworth and Michaels bother you so much, turn down the sound and listen to the Colts announcers.   Because on a national level those guys are among the best...

I actually like them FWIW and I put down the media alot at times. Al is among the best ever IMO and Collinsworth is very knowledgeable, JMO.

When did I say I was offended?  I've actually stated this was one of the better jobs they've done. 

 

Why should I have to turn down the TV and listen to the radio instead of putting my opinion on the message board?  As you've said, this is a discussion board, the purpose of the board is to discuss.

 

And there it is nice and bolded, acting like your the smartest person on the board again.

I really do not have a problem with Joe Buck either, especially his Baseball announcing but people pounce on him like crazy lmao . Jim Nantz is the best IMO, anyone that talks bad about him, they will get this :catfight::sarcasm:

    • And I think Quincy Wilson could play S if needed (Ballard said this multiple times around draft time that Q. Wilson is so valuable because he can play any position in the secondary).  And another draft pick, Tell III was a S in college -- the plan for him is to move him to outside CB, but imagine (if he makes the team, which I think he will) he can play S in a pinch.
    • His great drafting keeps him from being a laughingstock.   I also give him a bit of a pass because of OKC.   Small market where players do not want to sign.     If I was running the Thunder, I would consider just playing out the next few years with the 15 first round picks they have.  Especially in this time of "superteams".  
    • Is using a switch to discipline your child against NFL personal conduct policy? Is snapping a towel on his butt? Is cursing at him.....under the age of say 13, but okay to curse over the age of 13? Is sticking out your tongue at him okay?   As a prospective player, I would have a hard time understanding how far I could go in disciplining my kid before Roger Goodell disapproved.   Where should he draw the line?  As a player, how would I know where to draw the line?    What is legal and what isn't seems to be a a fairly bright line for everyone to see.
    • I REALLY think you missed my point   I was switched growing up, spanked , smacked, etc..........     I was taught manners and respect   I also taught my kids respect ...... we used a wooden spoon for a quick swat   I was making a comparison    AP's kids had some welts (I know them well) Four years old seems a little young for welts   Tyreeks kid had a BROKEN ARM   He didnt deny hitting the kid in the chest with his fist   AP's activity is questionable at worse..........  He was suspended   Tyreek is worse.....
