I try to ignore the idiot announcers as much as possible, but they're talking about how Ben grew up in Findlay, OH but was a Niners fan (Montana), not a Browns or Bengals fan. Next breath, announcer gushes that it's amazing how many great QBs hail from Western PA. True, but: have we annexed Ohio? I mean, does this beatdown mean Ohio has relinquished its sovereignty and is now part of the Commonwealth? Dumbfuckery.
I've decided that this is the problem: They think they HAVE to talk. Take a lesson from Pat Summerall, it's okay just to let the play happen and save your verbage for after the fact. If they would just realize, "Hey, it's okay to have brief silence while you think about what you say or read your prompter," they might be okay.
BTW, Tory Holt is the absolute worst. I have never heard anyone that bad on color commentary.
Picture perfect, with the exception of the ground game...
Yet, we still managed to rush for 100+. Again, people keep talking about the deficiencies of the offense and they are plentiful. But if
you reconfigurethe stats for what Big Ben might have done as opposed to CB, this may well be a top 10 offense. We've won Super Bowls with worse.
