Default Maddox and the ESPN Announcers...

Anyone catch when the announcers were cracking jokes about tommy maddox? "That little sleeve he wears on his wrist? I think he just went to the sidelines and the steelers coaching staff erased all the pass plays". I found it funny, but I hope he can get a little better with his throws. Who knows, batch looked like crap last week, but then came out hitting on all cylinders this week (till he got hurt). Maybe Maddox just needs that second game...who knows..

well batch looked like crap the first half of last week and then the second half did good, then today he was hitting on all cylinders, maddox played one game and got worse as the game went on, and then today he had an int that was whipped off, if he plays sunday it'll be more of the same

What ticked me off was McGuire saying he felt bad for Maddox because the fans dumped trash on his yard, which Theismann immediately agreed ws horrible. Too bad they did not bother to find out Maddox's agent made that story up, which Maddox's wife denied ever happened.

I normally am too footballed out to watch the Sunday night game - regardless of who you rooted for the announcers were terrible, being unable to get names or down and distance right. Even the sideline reporter was a mess, stating at one point that when Dilfer came to Cleveland he was told the one thing he had to do was "beat the Browns" (huh?)

Luckily, those old geezers at ESPN will be replaced next year when Monday Night Football goes to ESPN.

Still, they were right; Maddox does not belong behind center.

I still like Tommy as a player somewhat. As a person I lost all respect for him. Just because now you see most of the air hasn't been cleared about that incident. The story made national news, but his wife calling the claims false never did.

I am glad someone else heard that about Dilfer I thought I was the only one...

I agree the announcers were pretty bad last night but I liked the other crack about Maddox where I think Paul McGuire said the Steelers passing game has probably gone into the "Lockdown mode" after Maddox's interception was called back.

Paul McGuire is funny, week after week!

Joe was actually saying"Come on Tommy" They really did feel bad for him somewhat.
