    I wonder why Collinsworth is leaving his buds at FOX to go to NBC?

    Because he's always wanted to be in the studio. Fortunately for me, I have the option of not watching.

    Good, having him in the booth was a crap idea.
    He is actaully decent behind the desk. Doesn't make me want to stab him in the face with a fork drenched in pioson.

    I saw a show on Troy and Cris on NFL Channel.

    Cris has a family and he stated on that show that he really didn't like the travel and being away from his kids so much. So I think it would be something he could not turn down if he were offered the job and didn't have to travel so much.

    I think he's funny myself.

    I find him irritating. It isn't because he was a long-time Bengal either. I like Boomer Esiason, but Collinsworth is just so damn annoying. I don't like his face, his voice, his attitude or really anything about him.

    Looks like most people can't stand him, and I am definately another one who finds Chris pretty irritating.

    That's a good explanation. I would do the same if I were in his position.

    I was a bit surprised at all the pre-game work these guys have to do. They have multiple meetings, interviews with coaches and players and it requires a ton of travel. I'm fairly certain Cris was the one of the three of them singled out that did not like all the traveling.

    I can't stand Collinsworth. The way he talks, you'd think he was Steve Largent or Jerry Rice. He was a decent WR, but the guy's so damn smug it drives me nuts...
