But Sunday, I found out there was a much lower...

I cannot remember watching a football telecast and learning less than I did from the CBS crew Sunday in the Baltimore Ravens 25-15 win over the Cleveland Browns.
And the reason for that is simple: Rich Gannon is almost as lazy in his commitment to...

PHILADELPHIA // After Michael Vick tossed four interceptions, was sacked twice, and finished with a 50.9 rating in the Philadelphia Eagles’ 17-16 win against the Cleveland Browns, the quarterback has been poked and prodded by media and fans alike....

After all the scrutiny on the offensive line this preseason, the uncertainty of which five linemen would start in the season opener, and the surprise when Ramon Harewood ran out of the tunnel with the starters on Monday night, the new-look Ravens...

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.
