  • Ravens' CBS telecast marred by Peyton-Manning-is-God story line

    Ravens' CBS telecast marred by Peyton-Manning-is-God story line
    CBS came into Saturday’s game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Denver Broncos with a clear story line in its mind: Peyton Manning is God, and all our cameras and announcers are here to worship him. During the first quarter, viewers saw more...
  • CBS does a better Ravens telecast -- for one half anyway

    CBS does a better Ravens telecast -- for one half anyway
    The Ravens were finally deemed worthy by CBS Sports of its first-string broadcast team, and what a difference it made in the quality of the telecast -- for one half, anyway. While the first half was outstanding in terms of production and imagery, the...
  • Flacco's had trouble beating Bengals' cover-2 defense

    Flacco's had trouble beating Bengals' cover-2 defense
    Prior to this season, the prevailing thought was that the Pittsburgh Steelers were the mountain that Joe Flacco had yet to conquer. That has obviously changed after the quarterback led the Ravens to their first regular-season sweep of the Steelers...
  • Ravens TV: I finally bailed on CBS audio, and found joy at WBAL radio

    Ravens TV: I finally bailed on CBS audio, and found joy at WBAL radio
    I couldn't do it again. Honest, I tried, but I just couldn't. I saw Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf on my TV screen at the top of the Ravens telecast Sunday, and I knew I couldn't spend another Sunday afternoon listening to dumb and dumber of CBS Sports...
  • Ravens telecast a painful reminder of how bad CBS Sports can be

    Ravens telecast a painful reminder of how bad CBS Sports can be
    After nine months away from Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf, I forgot how maddening it was to watch the second-string unit from CBS Sports try to telecast a Ravens game. Players misidentified, random images inexplicably popping up on the screen, key...
  • CBS, Ian Eagle almost made the Ravens-Chiefs game watchable - almost

    CBS, Ian Eagle almost made the Ravens-Chiefs game watchable - almost
    Let's be frank, life is too short to waste much time on a sports telecast as boring as Sunday's football game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Kansas City Chiefs. First, much of the blame should go to the two teams: They were awful. The Ravens easily...
  • Some final TV thoughts on TBS, Orioles, Yankees, Ripken, Johnson, Smoltz

    Some final TV thoughts on TBS, Orioles, Yankees, Ripken, Johnson, Smoltz
    Here are some final thoughts from a very tired TV/media critic who didn't miss an inning of Orioles playoff baseball while covering the rest of a huge and sprawling beat. This week, it ranged from the debut of ABC's "Nashville," to  Joe Biden  smirking ...
  • Super Bowl TV: Good game, nasty ads, pathetic half-time show

    Super Bowl TV: Good game, nasty ads, pathetic half-time show
    I was supposed to review NBC's telecast of the Super Bowl itself. You know, what kind of job did Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth and Bob Costas do? And I will deliver a short, fast version of that. But you cannot review the Super Bowl without talking...
  • Ravens telecast an early Christmas gift from Fox Sports

    Ravens telecast an early Christmas gift from Fox Sports
    What a pleasure it was to get the first team from Fox for the telecast of a Ravens game rather than the second or third crew from CBS as we usually do. OK, maybe seeing the Ravens bounce back so decisively against the New York Giants, 33-14, has a little...
  • Z on Ravens TV: Watching this loss on CBS made it even worse

    Z on Ravens TV: Watching this loss on CBS made it even worse
    Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf are not my favorite announcers – far from it. But give them and their producers credit Sunday: While it wasn’t their main story line, they did include in their opening remarks Sunday a description the Baltimore...
  • CBS' Dierdorf expects noise from Ravens fans to rattle Texans

    CBS' Dierdorf expects noise from Ravens fans to rattle Texans
    At M&T Bank Stadium, it's all about the noise. So says Dan Dierdorf, the CBS commentator who'll work Sunday's AFC playoff between the Ravens and Houston Texans. Dierdorf believes the fans hold the wild card in Baltimore's march to the Super Bowl. "The...
