I have been putting off this post for a couple of weeks. It's about Mike Bordick's performance on MASN as an analyst on Orioles games.

It shouldn’t really come as a surprise that Dan Dierdorf, a former offensive tackle for the St. Louis Cardinals, thinks the Ravens need to return to running the football.
The CBS Sports NFL analyst makes a convincing case, arguing that the run...

Maybe there is a TV Santa Claus. CBS Sports televised the Baltimore Ravens against the Cleveland Browns on Christmas Eve, and the network didn’t force local viewers to endure Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf in the booth.

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.

Chris Johnson was rolling, and the Titans were ready to ride him to a playoff victory against the Ravens.

Let's be honest, I expected one of the worst Ravens' broadcasts of the year Sunday. It was bad enough that CBS Sports, which has gone three-for-three in seriously flawed Ravens telecasts this season, was covering the game. But worse yet, it was the CBS...
