I decided to throw on Monday Night Football last night while I was doing other things and after the first half, I just couldn't listen anymore.
Did you know that Carson Palmer got hurt last year? Did you know that it was his knee? Did you know that it was in a playoff game against the Steelers? Did you know that he is now wearing a knee brace? Did you know that last night was his debut game of the season? Did you know that it is hard to come back from knee injuries? Did you know that because Carson Palmer hurt his left knee that it would be difficult for him to plant on his follow-through? Did you know that he might be nervous in the traffic of an NFL pocket? Did you know that Carson's knee injury is mostly just in his head now? Did you know that coach Marvin Lewis was happy to see Palmer carve up the Green Bay defense? Did you know that Palmer wanted to take a hit? Did you know that Palmer was treating last night's game as nothing more than a practice, and/or training?
ALRIGHT JOE THEISMANN, WE GET IT. SHUT UP!
Who are the Monday Night Football fans that need this level of redundancy? Is that all we can say when Brett Farve fails to play well?
Yes, Carson Palmer is an important story in the NFL this year, but it seriously isn't an entertaining broadcast when you harp on the same point for three hours. It is the exact same crap that we put up with on Sunday Night Football. A bunch of guys sitting around watching Ray Lewis saying "How good is this guy?" and "Do you understand how much ground he covers?" all game long.
These guys stink at broadcasting. Their producers are overly dramatic asses who allow this type of banter to go on. Theismann is the worst of the bunch and I wish LT had crushed his larynx instead of his leg in 1985.
Last night's telecast made me wonder who the people were who couldn't deal with Dennis Miller.
