I noticed that every year people talk about how teams or players are going to take a step back. Why not discuss how good this info is that we've been getting and in turn talk about who's going to have to do the most backpedaling this upcoming year. I thought I would reserve this thread for all the shockingly bad assessments that "Experts" give so that we can refer back to it mid season and have lots of laughs. . . again
My money is on Adam Schein. Clearly the most clueless and useless member of the nfl xm broadcast team. Im not sure what else he does but suffice to say that listening to him for more than 30 minutes will leave you with less respect for anyone who calls himself a radio host. He makes the whole sports show concept feel like if you just string words together that other people say perpetually that you can actually count the seconds until listeners just want to kill themselves. . . twice for redundancy out of respect for the host.
Still, he doesnt just copy other people's bad points, he has plenty of his own horrible predictions. Here's one of his poorly thought out articles from last year entitled:
Well, that one didnt turn out to well either since the Falcons finished with 4 wins and "DEAR LAWD HELP ME HELP ME" losses while the Texans finished two and "OMG PLEASE MAKE IT STOP!"
Schein's work has mostly always been this bad since his first days in the field. I've seen no growth in his knowledge of the subject and with the latest round of articles and "predictions" from 2013 I am inclined to say that his downhill trend will continue. He will continue to be a disappointment as an analyst and likely take another huge hit to his credibility this year. I dont know if he can continue to hold a job if he doesnt improve his knowledge of the game. I expect Adam Schein to take the biggest step back as a sports analyst this year.
My man, Greg Olsen put up another solid game. The Nutty Professor, made plays with his hands in traffic and in tough spaces all day. Some of those drive the offense had to day flat out dont happen if Olsen isnt out there. What an amazing gift from Chi-town. we love ya.
It wasnt spoken of often today but Olsen outplayed Gonzalez today.
Im not sure why no one is talking about McDermott more. Behind Luke, TD, the Kraken et al's performance was the mad scientist, orchestrating a symphony of destruction. He deserves a good bit of credit for slapping Brees around.
Chico gave him a shout, but I havnt seen any articles running with it.
. . and I know this thread isnt much, but somebody had to post something. . Daymmm!
