Default Kordell worse as analyst than reading Ds

I was willing to give Kordell the benefit of the doubt.
but he is every bit as bad as an analyst as he was at
reading defenses. Have you seen this blathering fool
on ESPN? Virtually everything that comes out of his mouth
is less informed than the __ average __ NFL fan. He started
the year saying he thought Pgh would be in the basement of
the AFC North. When fellow suits brought up that Cinci had
just lost to Cleveland, he shrugged it off and said Cinci was
still much better than Pgh.

Why does ESPN keep putting him on, if anyone with a modicum
of football vision clearly sees he has no idea what he is talking about?
I mean, it's really obvious. He possesses no unique insight or vision.
I don't care if he played the game or not; he simply is clueless, yet
ESPN keeps putting him on there, offering garbage insights.

He was much more effective as "slash". That's what he should have stayed.

Who cares if he is horrible as analyst!!!! He is not working for the STEELERS. It's obvious that you didn't like him as a player and there is nothing wrong with that. He is not employed by the STEELERS anymore and you still dog him. What did he do SO TERRIBLE that you still find a need to talk about him??????? I listened to one of our former players (I forget the name but he played OL) on the radio with B.Hillgrove on WTAE and if I didn't know better you would have thought this guy was never a part of the organization, but no one writes a thread on that. Let the man be R.I.P........
....Retired In Peace LOL

Actually I'm gonna disagree on this one. Kordell actually speaks very very well. And his takes are at least based on reason. Now, you wanna talk BAD! Go to the fools on the NFL Network. Warren Sapp, and Jamie Dukes, are you kidding me ? These guys at like buffoons who still think they're players, and are in a Locker room. Not to mention the likes of Keyshawn Johnson and Michael Irvin. Compared to those guys, Kordell is actually very good.

Hello, you must be a Kordell hater because I believe that every idiot announcer on ESPN had us at least 3rd because of Ben's crap and us getting rid of Santo... So what's the dif between him and them? You still sour because he didn't bring us a championship?

Default Re: Kordell worse as analyst than reading Ds

Who cares if Kordell is on TV as a football analyst?

I mean, do any of you take what ANY talking head has to say as Gospel or as the undisputed truth? Do you NEED their opinion to guide you through life?

Personally, I could do without Trent Dilfer but he's not going anywhere and frankly, outside of "Mike and Mike" I have no use for almost all of these so-called experts.

If you don't like what Kordell or anyone else has to say, do what I do --- either hit the "mute" button or just change the channel.

Seriously, I think Mike Golic and Stinnk are the most level headed guys out there!

Default Re: Kordell worse as analyst than reading Ds

First of all, it's not as if this place has a plethora of good new threads every
day. So acting like making a thread about a former-Steeler and how he is
doing in _any_ endeavor does not seem out of line to me. It would be different
if there were so many posts that there was a pollution problem in here and
you couldn't get thru the less on-topic posts to find the ones you want; that is
clearly not the case, so enough with that 'tude where bringing up the skill, or
lack there of, of a former player being so off the mark.

Secondly, if you want to "go there" as far as how Kordell was as a QB, fine. It
seems some believe he wasn't so bad. Other than a few fluke years he was
indeed bad. Matter of fact, he was horrible and was kept as the starter
because Cowher (and Rooneys, maybe) couldn't admit that they were all
wrong about this guy as a QB. If you recall, after Kordell's worst season - up
to that point - Cowher pushed for, and got - a huge extension for KS for huge $,
selling the Rooneys that this new contract would restore his confidence, and that
that was what was needed to allow KS to play better. KS not only had 1 season
left on his current deal at the time, but ___TWO___. That was a bonehead move
by Cowher and they never wanted to admit it, hence, KS was allowed to be the
starter longer than any other team would have put up with.

Thirdly, those of you who brainwashed yourself into thinking KS wasn't such a
bad QB, fancy yourself this: At an age where most QBs would be at their prime,
the Bears needed to see him start in 7 games before he was benched and he
never even saw the field as a Raven, where as NO other team even wanted him
at that point, period. If he wasn't crap, why did it take 2 other
teams such super short periods to conclude he sucked? LOGIC. Try it. It is
pretty cool. KS has a career-long 55% completion %. That BLOWS.
