Man, they sure have mixed up football this year. You have to study all the changes to make sure you know who is having what game.. Primetime is History? Will they not do it before the Monday night games??? ESPN has the rights to MNF do they not???

"He's a knucklehead. He's a wide receiver in the NFL. Not everybody can be Hines Ward. If I could have 100 Hines Wards on my team, we would never lose a game. The bottom line is that (Ward) is the quintessential, unselfish, tremendous football player that every wide receiver should be like. He never complains. He blocks downfield. He understands his role in the offense and he just loves winning."

Boomer on Chad

"Pittsburgh is their measuring stick because Pittsburgh runs the team much like the Bengals run their team," he said. "It's family owned, but yet Pittsburgh for all these years has owned them and basically has been a more competitive franchise.

Boomer on the Bengals and Steelers

In his defense I have to say that when we did get into the Superbowl he did support the Steelers. But the entire season and throughout the playoffs he knocked the Steelers constantly.

I never really liked him all that much, but I couldn't help but to do so after those quotes. They were just so priceless coming from a former Bengal.

After Boomer's "Chad Johnson rant", I can't help but look at Boomer in a different light. It's about time somebody in that city spoke some sense when dealing with football.

Yep - The Sunday night PrimeTime highlights show with Berman and Jackson at 7:30-8:30 is history - it will run (sort of) as part of the Sunday Night SportsCenter after the Sunday night game is over.

ESPN was told to clear out Sunday evening for NBC and its pregame/highlights show, which I believe will start at 7:00 (although that will run over the end of the 4:00 games).
ESPN will be focusing on Monday night, where it will be running PTI from the game site and running a loooong pregame prior to the Monday night game.

Collinsworth hates the Steelers because he spent most of the games he played against them on his ass. Those aren't visions of sugarplums dancing in his head - they're black and gold Mack trucks. He reminds me of an oversized malnourished rat. Give him a garbage can and he'll be happy as a clam.

From what I saw of THE BUS last night, he did a good job. I loved it when he put on THE RING and waved to crowd. They weren't too pleased with it but hey, he's got every right.

I didn't like Chris "I don't know football" Collinsworth talking about how the Steelers season would have ended in Cincinnati if it weren't for C.P. going down. What a homer!
