Yeah the half time segment was a joke. A two minute recap of the game with no real analysis followed by the Manning love fest. Come on NBC, you gotta do better than that.

Not one word about field conditions. Players on both side looked like they were on skates; Our safety slipped on the long YAC for Booker, Santonio slipped twice, missed fg's.

Don't let a win taint the fact he still blows and doesn't talk about anything relevant.

LOL, LLT and RVA. I know he still blows, and that the season as a whole will be just as bad as ever. That's kind of what made it remarkable that I found so much good.

Regardless, I still think he stinks as an announcer....case in point both announcers continually called Welker, WALKER!!! And it is right there in front of them....HELLO!!!

I think he's an idiot. For half his salary, I'll take me and chimp in the booth and probably do a better job.

As for Collinsworth, he's just worthless! I can't stand him and his biased media outlook.

Really good stuff, again well beyond what I expected.

Tom
I actually almost got teary-eyed when Porter made those comments about kissing Cowher... This just shows the TRUE admiration and dedication that this team has for their Coach...ultimate trust!!!

Then the comment about Cowher is much more likely to be in Pittsburgh for 8 years and NOT 8 months... Even Madden had to suck it up and say "yes he will"...

I know that the Steelers are not nor every will be beholdin to Cowher, but I do think that he truly LOVES COACHING THE STEELERS and the players that he has... I think he's gonna stay...

Mike the Steeler's nut stuck in Cheeze country!!!

Madden doesn't have "really good" left in him. It's time for him to hang it up, and it has been that way pretty much since he moved to ABC from Fox.

With that said, he wasn't his usual terrible self last night. He was more or less on good behavior.

I agree with the person who mentioned Michaels being ready to throw Collinsworth out of the booth. It was really weak how the league sent him in as their toady to sell their newly made up gloss on the red flag. What a tool.

Madden and Michaels babbled on ad nauseum about the damn ball with the new commisioner's signature on it falling off the tee on the opening kick-off. Geez guys, WHO GIVES A S**T ABOUT THE DAMN BALL FALLING OFF THE TEE?!?!?

2 plays later, td hines ward.
that was weird, but looking for ward in the endzone when we are close happens a lot.

He ruined it with the amount of attention he put on the ball falling off the tee, and his commentary after Batch's sack that took them out of FG range.

'That was a big play. The Steelers were in field goal range, and then they sacked Batch, and put them out of field goal range. Now they have to punt.'

Thanks John.
