Default Honest assessment of our Steelers on NBCSports.com

Hey Guys,
While I know our Steelers are having a tough year here is an honest assessment of the team by Tom Curran of NBCSports.com

3. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-5). Quarterly grade: F+
They get the "plus" for a terrific game in Atlanta. There was no reason to rush Ben Roethlisberger back onto the field for the Raiders game after he got KO'd by the Falcons, and now a full-fledged controversy on whether he needs more time or not has been hatched. A Super Bowl letdown would have been, say, dipping to .500.

Among sports websites, NBCSport ranks somewhere below TSN and CFL's website.

NBC is very very bad with their football coverage. John Madden should have retired about 3 years ago. And their studio crew is easily the worst one in the the business right now.

I can't stand the way they review the highlights of the games. They are so boring!

I like Bob Costas as a host. He's pretty solid, even if he is a bit dramatic for the average sports fan. But the rest of the crew, Bettis included, are well below average and are painful at time to listen to.

I'm frankly dreading the NFL Network broadcasts with Collinsworth and Gumbel.

I have to agree that football night in america or whatever it is called is one of the worst freaking nfl shows out there. I liked nfl primetime. Even though i think most of the espn crew are a bunch of homers

nbc sports coverage in general sucks ass.

i can't stand their coverage of nascar. they miss major parts of races, they can't get back from commercials on time(even though there is at least a one-minute warning on-track that the race will be starting again), and their idea of color-commentary is to go "oooh!" when someone has a close call in the race. retarded.

i watch all their football coverage with the sound off and the broadcast from my sirius radio playing. much, much better that way!

I have never liked Costas, JMO. He comes across as an intellectual snob to me..."the fountain of all sports wisdom."

Collinsworth is like that obnoxious guy in a sports bar who thinks he is sooo knoweledgable and is so smug about it...he makes ya wanna throw a drink in his face and yell "JUST STFU!!"

Bingo...do you ever get the impression that he doesnt really have any other opinion than to just disagree with other peoples opinion?

Yeah how could they screw that up? I mean how hard is it to say: "Here they come into the home stretch, there they go, Here they come into the home stretch, there they go,
Here they come into the home stretch, there they go..." and repeat 100 times.
