Never been a big Collinsworth fan.

He can be a half-decent commentator sometimes, but following in Madden's footsteps? Ugh!

As far as ex-players, Tom Jackson, Howie Long, Ron Jaworski and Merrill Hoge are all smarter than Collinsworth.

I think he had to be rescued off the deck of a runaway riverboat on the Ohio River. We are lucky to have him today.

Indeed he was.

I wish they would have gotten TJ for SNF. Always enjoy him on NFL Countdown and Primetime.

I like him better where he is. He's a good complement/counterbalance to Berman.

Who'd be better on SNF? Tough question. How do you follow Madden?

Gruden would have been good on SNF, but nobody knew about his broadcasting acumen, yet. Jaws gives good analysis as does Gruden. Sometimes it is borderline too much in one booth.

Tirico is an okay play by play announcer and I think Jaws could hand all the color.

Move Gruden over with Al Michaels and both nights would be improved.

I could go with that.

I actually like Collingsworth. I may not always agree with him, but I believe he calls it as he sees it, and that's really all you can ask of the people in his business.

Just remember, whenever you post one of these pics, that Chris Weinke won virtually all the same awards and accolades that Cam did. :eek:

Obviously we need to wait for Newton then.. wait until he's around 27 before we draft him. He can be our 27 yr old rookie that every other team is laughing at as he stands like a statue in the pocket.

You have to respect Collinsworth opinion,he unlike most,

played NFL ball and he has announced and studied NFL ball

for a long time. You have to give credence to what he says.

I have been saying it all along Gabbert is more NFL ready and

will be better for our team over the long haul. Gabbert>>Newton

No, I dont. I preferred Tony Kornhole to him in the booth. I respect Marino's, TJ's, numerous other players opinions over Collinsworth. Sunday Night Football is painful to watch because of him.

Seriously? You don't respect Collingsworth's football opinions but you do respect Korney? That guy knows nothing about football and his voice is terrible for the job. All he did was ramble on about celebrities and dancing with the freakin stars.
