Before the game all of the "experts" on NFL network predicted a Saints win. They summized that with the coaching changes and the loss of Joey Porter that the Steelers were supposed to struggle trying to find their identity. The Saints on the other hand who played in the NFC championship game were getting all the props. Highest scoring offense, Brees one of the highest rated passers, Bush set to have a breakout season etc.,etc.,etc.,

Well, I am glad they decided to go ahead and play out the game anyway even though it was a foregone conclusion that the Saints would win.

It so upset the experts that they looked like fools, that they dig up some obscure fact that the winner of the HOF game has never won the SB. Is that why the Saints tanked the game? Didn't want to ruin their chances? Give me a break! A 6th seed had never won the superbowl before either until we did it 2 years ago.

You know that their is some bias when Collinsworth has more kind words for your team than all the other guys combined. :lol:

Collinsworthless and Gumball cannot carry a game. Not that they are not knowledgable, Neckworth was a heck of a reciever, just seemed like a 3rd rate effort.
Yeah, it's preseason, and irrelivant, but IT IS THE FIRST KICKOFF OF THE SEASON! WE'VE WAITED ALL SUMMER FOR THIS! GO STEELERS!!

The NFL Network shouldn't be allowed to broadcast games.....PERIOD.
I couldn't believe how Bryant Gumball and Chris Collinsworth literally neglected to cover the game for the better part of 5+ minutes while they chose to swing from the testicles of Michael Irvin when he came to visit in the booth.

That pissed me off too! A couple times the camera's were on Collinsworth and Gumbel while the play was ready to resume, as if anybody would rather be watching these clowns. Then they ran a couple plays with the game in the smaller picture in a picture mode so they could keep the camera's on the idiots in the booth. Just shameful!

Yeah, NFL network needs to watch the networks do a game and learn how to do it. They sucked!

IMO... the NFLN shouldn't be broadcasting games anyways. If you think about it, those who have cable have to buy a "special" package to get the NFLN so in a way it's kind of like a cheap pay-per-view but you get the channel for the whole month. I'm not a big fan of the NFLN just because I don't have it and I don't feel like I should have to pay for it either!!!

Chris "I hate the Steelers" C. should be only allowed to call Steeler games if the Bus is in the booth with him so he can be put in his place from time to time

So basically, you guys are saying don't waste your time on the Network and just go straight for the Sunday Ticket.:yesnod:

While I agree that they were slobbing all over the Saints prior to kickoff, I've got to say .... for the first time ever ...... Collinsworth had plenty of good things to say about Tomlin and the Steelers yesterday.

I too was very upset at how Gumble and Collingsworth kept talking about everything else BUT the game in several places--and it wasn't for just like a few seconds... Their inane chatter detracted from what everyone was interested in!!!

if u watched the pregame, halftime show or postgame u would have realized tht the camera operators in general sucked. It wasnt Collinsworth fault that his producers dont know wht they r doin
on tht note
i believe Collinsworth would be a hell of a lot better if he had a different partner. Gumbel is just impossible to listen to and doesnt deserve to be on tv


So basically, you guys are saying don't waste your time on the Network and just go straight for the Sunday Ticket.:yesnod:

if u have Comcast the package is worth it because you get College Sports TV
guess wht they had on on Sunday...


national collegiate paintball championships

try tellin me u wouldnt love to see tht

Are you trying to say we are in the same category as the Yankees, Patriots and even the Cowboys, teams that people love to hate? :scratch:

I've never thought of the Steelers to be in this category but then again I guess I've never been on the outside looking in :D
