ESPN Talking Points

163 posts in this topic

I just hate all the bitching about ESPN...

Get the fug over it

IDK what you expect from a sports message board. If skip saying a team will be X-X generates a response from me, so be it. But to think people will not react to what anyone, any show, or any article from ESPN says on a football message board in unrealistic IMO. I don't understand you freakin out over it. But oh well, do what you do.

Well, heres the thing, no one is making you post here, and people have been bitching about ESPN for years. So this is not anything new, so instead of telling people how to feel, and when to be offended, wouldn't it make sense to shield your eyes from these threads and pretend like they don't exist.

I used to work for ESPN.....and I can legitimately say that they suck at sports news reporting.

They have become slightly more than the Jerry Springer Show of Sports.....they are all about sensationalism and ratings....not news.

It makes me embarrassed to be apart of the Huddle.

Bunch of grown men mixed in with some 16 year olds acting like Justin Bieber fans after he didn't touch your hand at a concert.

Embarrassed?

It's just like a girl, If you are embarrassed to be in public with her, don't complain, just stop going out with her.

If your embarrassed by the huddle, don't complain, just don't waste you time there.

Well of course they are.

But, I mean, it is hard to expect an analyst, especially such a Bayless or Cowherd to be experts on every professional sports team in all 4 major sports, and also dozens of college football and basketball teams.

That's why I just like hearing those guys talk about big picture topics and pretty much don't worry about their opinions of my team.

I may joke like "fug espn", but I really dont care.

Something people are not mentioning which is huge is how the coaching change (particularly in philosophy) will improve our team by itself from last year. Not including the additions in FA and the draft.

Im not sure if you guys realize it but we have a DAMN good group of coaches here.

Aggressive D and Aggressive O.

That vanilla poo Fox ran will not be winning you any superbowls.

We now have a coaching staff that resembles GB, NE, NO, SD, ect. Coaches that are pro active and put the peddle to the floor and dictate rather than react.

In todays game you must have an aggressive blitzing D. Along with an aggressive O.

Im taking the NE and GB all day over the NYJ and other teams that rely heavily on the run game.

Not saying you gotta pass every down but the days of running to set up the pass are over.

Well, we kinda are. We didn't really acquire any proven guys in FA but Ron Edwards, he's injured now. They're going off of past performances, and in that case Cam is unknown (which he is) and Jimmy isn't going to do very good.

You must actually be a new account, and not a duplicate. Welcome!

Same here....the experts are actually not really experts. they are TV personalities that are paid to stir things up.

Skip is an entertainer, and sometimes, hes pretty funny. Analyst?? debatable.

Pretty much. Seems like that's what ESPN goes for these days.

Skip trolls this board almost as well as TRD.

He did his job and got people talking....that's what sports journalism is all about

You hit the nail on the head....Skip is a Sports Journalist...not a Sports Reporter.

His work is more like an Editorial than a story.
