Hey fellas, I'm a long time lurker, rare poster, but I had to mention this.

I've watched Steeler football since 96, over half my lifetime, and I was also a big fan of Inside the NFL on HBO since that time until last year or the year before, when it was cancelled.

I've always hated Cris Collinsworth. His arrogance, his attitude, especially towards Pit, even his damn grin. Typically he doesn't give Pittsburgh the credit they deserve, and when they're slumping, he hammers 'em.



He had some GREAT input last night. Not only in the pre-game with the NFL network fellas, but calling the game. I thought all of his "opinions" on plays/penalties were dead on and fair. I thought his assessments of the players was also spot on, and he made some great comments.

So Cris, :hatsoff: to you. Thanks for finally giving a fair assessment and being honest.


Was anyone else surprised by him last night, or am I trippin'?

Nope, I thought Collinsworth was decent for a change last night, so it wasn't only you. I thought his commentary was actually quite insightful. A refreshing change from the 3 clowns they have calling Sunday night games on ESPN.

Needless to say, I have been a fan of his since his days in the Nati. He was dead on last night and has never been shy to rip his old team, which by the way they need lots of these days.

I wouldn't know, because I had the radio broadcast on. I still hate the pencil-necked geek regardless.

It wasn't until the second half that Collinsworthless finally began giving the Steelers props....BECAUSE HE HAD TO! There was no denying the fact that we are simply the better team!!!!
The entire first half was nothing but smack talkin on our boys! He can take a big one right up the @ss as far as I'm concerned!!!!!

How many times did he mention "former Bengals" on the Steelers Roster. Seriously, the guy is such a Bengals homer I'm surprised he's allowed to even call our games. Its like having the Witch who eats kids, watching your kids. Seriously.

Oh he can break down a game sure, he's got "insight" but he's still a Toolbag Homer and I wish he'd be banished from even mentioning our Team on a broadcast ever, let alone covering us.

I've heard Collinsworth praise the Steelers quite often, usually in radio-shows...at the beginning of last year he said the Steelers were the team to beat in their division, and they could be "very, very, very good" in relation to the rest of the AFC.

Not defending the guy, just playing "devils advocate".

I agree with Duck here. Gooseneck had no choice, he didn't say another kind word about the Bungs after Marvin went for 3 instead of the TD.

For the Record, this piece of crap said last night that the Jets were the best team in the AFC and that he predicts a NY vs NY Superbowl. Guess he forgot about the #1 defense that he watched last Thursday already.

Guy will look for ANY reason to discount the Steelers. He hates us, has since he was a player.

Anyone who naturally has a head shaped like a limp penis has to be a dikhead. :chuckle:

He's still crying because the Steelers used to give his face a turf washing and make his life a living hell when he played for the Bungles. :crying01::crying01::crying01:

Well he's paying us back now by trying to bore us to death.

That guy sucks at his job.

Collinsworth said on this week's inside the NFL "I'm never picking against the Steelers again."

yeah...we'll see Chris...

wanna bet if the SB was Giants Steelers he'd take the Giants. In fact, I bet he picks against the Steelers in the Titans and Ravens games.

I don't want him picking us. He's bad luck.

Oh me either. I'd much rather he keep picking against us. I think he took us this week over the Cowboys but that'll change. Sure thing.

Why would you even care what Collinsworth has to say? I just hope he's a better lawyer than an announcer for his clients sake
