    Madden & Collingsworth..their enthusiasm comes off very authentic...Gruden, Romo.....................................Witten :wadepalm: come/came off fake as hell.

    Collingsworth is just annoying as hell to me... he dwells on the obvious, and won't ever shut the hell up

    First time I ever heard anyone compliment Collinsworth. I've never liked that guy.

    He'd still try to have the audiences believe that he was the best WR that ever lived. Lol!

    I've grown to like Collinsworth over the years but used to hate him. He's not a GOAT by any metric, but he was a pretty good receiver.

    Frank Gifford? He's the answer to the question, "What's blander than bland?"

    Compliment? Is this sarcasm?

    He didn't try to make it all about him. Perhaps you enjoy the mouthy types, I don't

    Was referring to the post before yours that you also referred to.

    Lol, dude stop. Its ok to say you don't like him just because. You don't have to lie on the dude to get your point across. Collingsworth hardly ever references his career except when he's goofing on himself (slow white guy etc...)...Matter fact, he does his best to downplay just how good he was when others like Al Micheals bring it up.

    I've heard him speak for over 20 yrs calling games and as an analyst. I stand by what I said. He's arrogant as hell and always has been. I finally found a fan of his as a tv guy. Congrats, but you stand alone.

    Apparently not since he's been doing it for 20 years.....lets just call a spade a spade. This is why you don't like him...lol.

    So this is part of what you get after sending the initial email to pro-football focus:

    Snippet:

    Seems like a few people do this stuff for free anyways.
    Might as well get paid for it if possible.

    This stuff is still highly subjective...is a guy playing hurt, nicked up, LG when he was moved from RG due to injury, etc but it is data. I’ve read that it is the 0-100 grades that are the most subjective. Someone else posted it best. Just too many moving parts in football and, face it, intangibles can’t be measured. Too bad because I’d love to know exactly what makes very few QB’s special.

    It’s also about the high draft choices the Texans loaded on you. That crap won’t happen often.

    So Machiavellian with the James Bond references.

    Email says not to share the data collection guide, but I asked if I could share the two cheat sheets with the abbreviations they use and the field coordinates they use. If they give the ok I'll post them here just so folks can see it. I hesitate to just post it without their ok since I did a quick search and didn't see them online.
