Ok so after hearing so much this past Sunday about how the NFL NEEDS Tom Brady, I've decided (most likely out of boredom at work) to create a thread about what the NFL TRULY NEEDS:

1) Chris Collinsworth to be sent to Russia to announce gymnastics
2) Madden sent to London to announce cricket
3) A commissioner with a real set of balls
4) Players that aren't afraid to play the game
5) Less whining
6) More hitting
7) No more penalties for celebrations (it's a game, have fun)
8) Belichick to serve a suspension equal to the number of games he had videotaped (x2 for all playoff games)
9) Rooney's allowed to keep interest in the Steelers and their race tracks
10) Commentators that understand the game and can announce the game that's being televised without knob slobbing brady, favre, or patriots* unless their on the field.


Please feel free to add on:

Allowing for quarterbacks to be treated as grown men playing football, and not girls wearing short skirts.

You forgot Peyton Manning, duh.

Also, they need to get rid of any special penalties that can happen when you tackle the quarterback. He's a football player just like everybody else; I don't care if he's "more valuable" because his contract is twice as big.

Oh yeah -- that crap where they have a touchdown, then a set of commercials, then JUST the kickoff, then another set of commercials? That has to go, or else all the rules designed to "speed up the game" for TV have to go.

THANK YOU!!!! Nothing pisses me off more than the commercial - kickoff - commercial bull crap! Seriously? WTF is up with that? It's not like it takes 3 minutes for the different units to come out onto the feild.

Speaking of announcers, the best is Tim Ryan. He also get bad Fox games, but he is one of the best in calling games.

11. Dan "Captain Obvious" Dierdorf goes with Collinsworth to repeat everything he says.

I think the "legend of the Mighty John Kuhn" kinda took off with these threads:

Obviously, he wasn't the "answer" as a "power back" or in short yardage situations for us. Been kind of a running joke here ever since. :chuckle:

what the NFL needs is a rookie salary cap. there is no reason to pay these rookies an exorbitant amount of money before the play a single down.

i believe a 3 year/$3,000,000 is good enough. if they don't like it then they can go play in the CFL or europe.

sideline reporters that present no information at all..

female reporter: "Coach, what do you have to do in today's game to beat the other team?"
coach (who has nothing better to do right before kickoff): "We have to score more points than them."
female reporter: "There you have it. The key to the game. Back to you guys in the booth."

I could not agree more with you on this. It may be one of the most annoying things ever.

I also agree with the Dierdork comment, take his lithshp and sthschip off.

What are you talking about!? Don't you remember that glorious 16-yard carry he had! Think of all the good Kuhn-related time's we've all had before you decry him as "not the answer! Why, FS, why!?
