As for myself, i really didn't even think about whether Kordell used to play for the Steelers or not. I just found him terrible as an analyst period.

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.
i think you need to go to the bathroom and take a big thumping shit

Kordell is a joke as an analyst, moreso than he was a quarterback, and that's saying something. And yes I am a Kordell hater, the reason being Kordell never acknowledged blame for anything. It was always the coordinaters fault, or the receivers, but never poor Korkie's.

I agree (and Greenberg's not so bad either).

I just wish that Stinnk would stop dressing like he owned a Fortune 500 company and relax a bit more in the wardrobe department, but other than that I think he's OK.

Going back to SB XLIII, I reemmber when they had Korkie on ESPN 2's First and 10, and he was asked if any other qb could have led the Steelers to the SB that year. He not only offered himself as an example but among others that he claimed would accomplish the same were Tavares Jackson.

Skip Bayless?

If he wasn't so damned full of himself all the time I could take him for longer periods.

That said, I'll admit that he usually gets it right but he needs to chill with the "I'm going to give you my opinion" shtick as if he was the Oracle of Delphi and his words were going to be carved in granite and enshrined in some sacred place.

He's a talking head on a sports network, not Ghandi.

And didn't ESPN revise its substance abuse policies right after that?

Tim and Pat on NFL sirius radio are the best out there in my opinion. They know good football when they see it.

unlike national media they attend and study every game.

i agree. there is no better. tim is an admitted steelers fan and pat easilly acknowledges the steelers as one of the best run organizations out there.

pat predicted the steelers to go 12-4 in 2008 when every other talking heat was saying how brutal their schedule was.

this year pat was the only one who gave the steelers a legitimate shot to win the division and predicted them to atleast be a wildcard team in a tough fought battle with baltimore for AFC north title.

kordell is fine (hoge and malone are/were better). i dont let these ESPN people bother me.
