Default Cris Collinsworth is a blow hard

Well its been obvious for a while that the man from the Bungles has never liked the Steelers, but last night was plain asinine. Collinblowhard tried to call out Hines on a primetime national broadcast last night that was pure bull shit. If you missed it, he accused Hines of paying off refs and holding every time he blocked someone even demonstrating it on camera. He later tried to play it off, but he is savvy and knew EXACTLY what he was doing. I feel bad for Hines having to work with this jerk off, even the other announcer immediately noted on how Blow Hard attacked Hines right off the bat.

Being the man Hines is however, he brushed it off like a pro. Yet Collinblowhard then attacked him again saying the only reason Hines gets in the Hall of Fame is because of his blocking( it is going to be a big reason but Blow Hard said it in a way that underplayed Hines's receiving skills and I know for a fact Hines doesn't like that.) Then Blow Hard went on about Hines's lack of speed and then started mocking Ryan Clark about his lack of speed. No one even likes this big headed idiot anyways and he had a shitty NFL career. It is obvious he is jealous of the success we have had in the Burgh.

Chillax dude, haha. It's just breaking the ice. All former ball-players do it. I kind of got pissed at first when he put his hands on Hines because everyone and their mother knows Hines would tear big-bird apart.

That said, I liked what Collinsworth said later on in the broadcast. He said "..nah, joking aside, I wouldn't question you, I've SEEN what you did to Ed Reed and Ray Lewis.." or something along those lines. Translation: YOU, Hines Ward, are an absolute BADASS.

I actually like Chris Collinsworth as an announcer to be honest. People always said John Madden had an anti-Steelers bias as well, but I never saw it. The only announcer that really bothers me is Phil Simms.

All he did was praise LeBeau and Ben all night long.

What can you do to a team that is consistently so successful but pull at straws and make stuff up about its legendary players? I never saw Big Bird as a big hater, but PHIL SIMMS IS SOOOOOOOO OBVIOUS. I cannot stand him and even when he isn't hating on our Steelers, he just seems into put-downs and building himself up at others' expense. Can't question his resume, but he is my least favorite.

I'll take Madden anyday - very entertaining, as crazy as he comes across. I can understand some bitter feelings, but I feel like he has had nothing but respect for the Steelers. Him and Michaels covering XLIII was an instant classic. I always will remember Madden on Harrison's 100 yd pick 6 - "UNNNBERIEVABBBABLE!"

Its obvious that he hates the Steelers you can't argue that. He does it very discreetly though because he is a broadcaster. He only said Ben was a top ten qb not top five. He hates on Hines then tries to joke it off later just stuff like that. He's savvy but he's a hater, but he does like some of our guys like Troy and Tomlin. Still think he's a blowhard.

I also thought Collinworthless' remarks with Hines Ward were highly inappropriate. He's a jerk.

I really do get tired of so-called announcers thinking THEY are the reason people tune in to watch the game. I'm tired of the idiocy displayed by most of them. I usually turn the volume down so I don't have to listen to their drivel.

collinsworth did a great job breaking hines in and easing him into the job. they actually seemed like old buddies who were glad to be working together for the first time. Chris led hines and didnt hog the mic. their exchanges were very fluid and natural. i only counted a misstep or 2 where hines seemed almost suprised to be given such a free opportunity to speak and he revisited and re-emphasized a point that had already passed.

great job altogether.

I thought he broke Hines in well. Gave him some ball busting, complimented his playing style. We all know Hines wasn't the fastest guy out there but he had solid hands and was Bens go to guy for years. Not to mention the fact everyone knew the Steelers were a run oriented team for most of Hines career. Hines will always be known as one of the best blocking receivers in the game that counts.

He is HOF bound.
