That's Nantz. Dierdorf is a decent announcer.


This. Nantz is one of the worst I've heard call a game nationally...just brutal. Not a big Colts fan either, mainly because of our feuds with Tom Brady over the years (Nantz has a Tom Brady picture in his shower, no doubt). And Phil Simms couldn't be any more of a blowhard. I'm glad his kids aren't in the league or they'd be the #2 and #3 QBs in the league...#1 would be Phil himself because he can still comeback and do it...

I always liked Dick Enberg and Dan Dierdorf, a couple of old fashioned guys that called a good game and were knowledgeable and didn't like showboaters and hype and nonsense...they split them up for some reason unfortunately...

Nantz/Simms are and have been just the worst over the past few years...

Go Colts!


Nantz is going to laud Flacco and present him with a green jacket after the game.

Dick Enberg was great. "Oh, my!"

I can't see Indy scoring another point in this game.

Ray Rice went to the Mendenhall school of protecting the football during the last week.

I can't believe the Steelers couldn't beat out either of these teams. The AFC teams in this round are so bad.

Next week's games are going to be just as terrible for opposite reasons. I can't see Denver or NE winning by any less than 21 each.

Hockey back + lasagna in the oven + Ravens losing = a wonderful day

C'mon, Colts, make it a trifecta. Let's go.

Indy is totally being outclassed here in 2nd half.

Maybe this shows how valuable Bruce Arians is.. :pop:

I was going to write the same thing... but I'm not sure Pittsburgh fans would have reacted any differently.

Those patches on the Ravens jerseys would be a lot cooler, if they were actually promoting the general idea of "art."

I respect ray Lewis the player... but I really dislike Ray Lewis the man.

Glad to know that next week will be his last week.

I don't respect him as a player. He's about 7 years removed from having any impact. His stat line if full of tackles made after the runner is down. Hometeam stat guys give him credit on anything he's within 5 yards from. Even during his dominant years he needed 2 dlineman in front of him who could eat up blocks, I'm not sure Ray often beat any block to make a play. He'd get owned by FB's with a free run at him.

What is he good at? A stupid pre-game dance. The NFL had two options - have an accomplice to murder play in their league - or just go so over the top with praise for the guy that people would forget his part in the tragedy - the NFL chose the latter... and I have no idea why - they had much better role models who are just as good in the game.

Yeah, I thought so too...thank you for the words, it was a terrific season vs. expectations. It's a shame it sounds like we're gonna be brought up on charges here...
