Default ESPN and NFL Network: Don't even watch this season!!!

Because based on their reporting, the New York Jets are the only team in the NFL. Geez, who do they want to win?

I agree.

It's not every year, that a team goes 9-7, in back to back years. That's solid improvement there. Probably win the Superbowl.

I get what you are saying and that is not the point I'm making. Can't they at least talk about The Saints who are the defending champions that beat The Colts in the Super Bowl?

How about talking about any other team instead of connecting every segment to The New York Jets.

On another note, Rich Eisen just got done talking to Tim Tebow and he's giving him those Brett Favre mancrush eyes.

Bingo!

The only I time watch ESPN is when there is a live football game on, and sometimes not even then if it's two teams I don't care about. I never, ever, watch the ESPN analysis shows. While NFLN isn't much better sometimes, at least it is the NFL network with repeats of games and up to date news, so I can tolerate the BS from NFLN.

that's throwing around the word 'entertainment' rather loosely.

Default Re: ESPN and NFL Network: Don't even watch this season!!!

I have been folowing ESPN, ESPN 2 and NFL Total Access and while I am sympathetic to your claim, what I hear is mostly Tebow, top 10 team selections, Tebow, Rothlisberger, Tebow, will Bradford be #1 and Colt McCoy. Saints being SB winners is now old news & that team is drafting way down the line. I can see how their pick may not be real important to to fans of other teams. It is like "You had your 15 minutes now go away."

Default Re: ESPN and NFL Network: Don't even watch this season!!!

I guess I'm just not understanding how come everytime they get a big named player, they have to do a live phone interview with the coach and other players. Sirius Satelite was the same way. At one point they had CJ Spiller on the radio and then they asked him if he wouldn't mind falling to The Jets. What?

Even Mike Lombardi on NFL Network, who I never really like because he never seems to talk well about the Texans, was asked what teams will make the playoffs and not do well. His response was "well I know I'm not saying the Jets. Seems like the Trophy is already over there based on all the hoopla that's going on around here over that team."

My take exactly. ESPN drives shit into the ground. NFLN is almost as bad, but like you said, at least there are the Americas Team, Greatest Games, the top 10 shows and NFL Replay to watch........oh, and cant forget follies!

At this time, I'm opting for the NFL Network. Once the draft begins I might switch between the two.

Me too, I love watching the old games from the 70's and 80's, back when they could knock the pi$$ out of someone, and the other player didn't jump up freaking out calling for a flag.
