    I would like to remind you that it is your job to be as un-bias as possible. Your commentating today had me wondering if you were wishing you could meet Ben Rothelisberger in a bathroom stall.

    Is there any possible way that when you do color commentating for Texans games that you might want to talk about anything good we are doing or are you just flat out mad that you didn't get to do another game?

    When The Texans made a 3rd down stop by drilling Hines Ward in the back and forcing Rothelisberger to punt, you insisted on talking about what a great throw he made and how terrific an athelete he is. WHO GIVES A RATS TAIL??? When Ben gets pressured by Mario Williams and Mario doesn't fall for a fake forcing Ben to get rid of a ball on 3rd down, we begin to actually here you masterbating to the idea of Ben being "such an incredible athlete to avoid the pressure and get the ball out."


    Then the Texans get the ball back with just over 4 mins remaining and I'm thinking you should just go ahead and say "we aren't going down like that Houston. Steelers forever!!!" because you just kept insisting that this game was far from over.

    We could also hear your relief on the JJo interception when the "roughing the passer" call was made.

    It is my only prayer now that you never get teamed up with Steve Tasker or Dan Fouts.


    Texans, it is time for you to take notice of this and start going on some glorious win streak so that you can stop being the most disrespected team in the league.

    I just kept wondering why they continued to talk about Ben-burgers 'awareness'. We're talking about the fumble/int-machine of Pittsburgh... I would call him unaware :)

    While he did praise our offensive line, that was about 2 minutes out of a 2 hour Dierdorf on Ben Rothelisberger leg humping session. Everyone watching the game where I was at just wanted him to shut up towards the end.

    I wish they had an alternate channel in which you could watch the games with the game sounds, but zero commentary. That would be ideal to me as I never care what those people have to say about the game itself.

    Yeah, NBC, I think it was NBC, tried that once and I saw a game with just the game sounds. Interesting and weird all at the same time.

    I think we are so conditioned to have a voice-over it would take a long time for most of the fans, myself included, to get used to the format.

    Somewhere, though I'll only admit it here, I like even a Dierdorf blowhard doing the game. It sort of adds to the whole anger thing....lol.
