Worst NFL announcers?

Postby brewmaniac » Tue Jan 11, 2005 12:03 pm

My worst three (with 1 being the worst)

1. Paul Maguirre
2. Cris Collinsworth
3. Joe Theismann

Maguirre is a know it all (at the same time not knowing sh**). He immediately discounts what the other announcers are saying and he believes what he is stating is fact, like he is a football God. This guy makes me sick, and half the time I'm tempted to turn down the sound when he's on. Extremely opinionated douche.

Collinsworth is a hypocrite (ex: John Smith is the worst player in the league. John Smith then catches a 50 yard pass for TD one quarter later. John Smith is now the best player that ever lived. )

Theismann has the same style as Maguirre.

Paul Maguire is the biggest piece of sh*t ever. I pretty much hate everything that idiot says. He never knows what he is talking about and he is a damn weasel. He is little, old, fat and has such a hi pitched voice. He sounds like a little damn weasel.

Maguire and Theismann come close to making Sunday night games unbearable. The bickering and the attitudes and the cockiness...I don't care for them all to be honest.

Frankly, I also don't like Joe Buck either.

The entire ESPN booth gets the nod for top 3 worst, bar none. The Fox team is pretty good, the CBS team is pretty anonymous, and Madden and Michaels are the best in my opinion.

The ESPN crew is absolutely horrible, but John Madden is right up there too. ...although on Saturday, going from ESPN calling the Rams/'Hawks to MNF calling Jets/Chargers, Madden sounded like a genius.

Ha, it takes those three idiots to make Madden sound good. I used to think it would be hard to be worse than Madden, but when ESPN put that crew together (and left it together! are they blind?) they managed to top him.

I'm pretty sure we've been through this one before, but Collinsworth is the worst, with Theismann rating a close second.
Two pompous asses who seem to think they have some elite football knowledge noone else can fully understand, simply because they once played in the league. They're smarter than the current coaches, players, refs... hell, they're smarter than Stephen Hawking.

I love the ESPN crew. I've made this comment before...they're like Beavis and Butthead. Everything they say is stupid and laughable. It's like watching guys on pot. It's also hilarious when they kiss the asses of any "hyped" player, as well as any has been that was great.

During the SEA/STL game...one of them was like, Jerry Rice made this play...he took the cornerback out of the play which freed up Jackson (or Engram) for the catch.

Well DUH...that's what another WR does...they never say this about other no-name WRs who attract attention, too.

I hate Joe Buck's voice. It's terrible. Collinsworth is horrific as well.
