Time for this week's NFL announcing recap from the past Sunday in Straight Outta Stockton. The biggest announcing news this week though are the questions about Monday Night Football with coaching rumors once again swirling everywhere around ESPN's Jon Gruden. If only Brian Billick could return to coaching too, then we'd be golden...
Terry Bradshaw summed up the Jets Quarterback controversy on Fox NFL Sunday-The worst thing the Jets did was bring in Tim Tebow to make Mark Sanchez aways have to look over his shoulder. No Starting QB should always be looking over their shoulder.
Jimmy Johnson on the Saints turnaround and chanes of making a playoffs run on FOX NFL Sunday- After week 4, i called them a rudderless ship on the road to nowhere. Now they have found a way back on course. New Orleans is great on offense, but with this defense,they are going to come up short of the Playoffs.
Keyshawn Johnson on whether QB Peyton Manning is in the mind of the Chargers on Sunday NFl Countdown-Phillip Rivers just has too much weight on his shoulders. He is trying to do too much. It is like he's trying to save the franchise.
Cris Carter on Quarterback Andrew Luck VS Tom Brady on Sunday NFL Countdown-Don't think that Tom Brady will have the same intensity he's had every time that he's faced the horseshoe on the opposite side. He dosen't get credit like the other Quarterbacks in the league we talk about as the great competitors. Tom Brady is a hired assassin.He is trying to spoil this rookie's debut in Foxboro. This is the way he always is. He is a great competitor.
Tony Dungy on New York Jets Thanksgiving Night game VS the New England Patriots on Football Night in America-If the Jets run the ball and don't get into a throwing match, i think that they can win the ballgame, i think the Jets have a shot to win.
Al Michaels on Cowooys on Football Night in America-I saw that whole game. It took them 4 hours to beat the Cleveland Browns. They lost that game like 15 different times, Overtime was crazy. It's a gigantic win.
Sterling Sharpe on the 4-5 New Orleans Saints on NFL Network's 1st on the field-There is only 1 team who scares everybody in the National Football League,and that's the New Orleans Saints because they get off the bus scoring points.
Deion Sanders on his perceived lack of effort by the Phladelphia Eagles Defense on NFL Gameday Highlights and NFL Gameday Final- There is no way you can have that much talent and play that atrociously.
Shannon Sharpe on Dallas making the Playoffs on the NFL Today-And here's the thing.I don't know if Jerry Jones can fire 53 guys and an entire coaching staff.They have 8 games remaining. 6 of those are at home. If they do not make the Playoffs, with this kind of cookie schedule,somebody's got to go.
Bill Cowher comparing Peyton and Eli Manning on the NFL Today- It's like comparing Apples and Oranges.
They're both great quarterbacks. But Eli Manning right now in my opinion is 5 year younger.He's played in a tougher atmosphere right now than Peyton did, who had a system catered around him and played in a dome all those years
In the NFC East,you're playing in the elements. When you look at the Playoffs,when you distinguish between the 2 players, Eli is 8-3, 2 Super Bowls, 2 MVPs.
Peyton is 9-10 in the Playoffs. All i'm saying is that i would take Eli Manning over Peyton.
Jon Gruden- What is that song that i like Mike??? We will rock you, while the 49ers are rocking the Bears tonight!
Chris Berman- Last night the Steelers battled the Ravens in the WBA title fight and tonight the Bears are playing the 49ers in the WBC title fight during game picks on Monday Night Countdown!
Steve Young- Homer, i am not a homer, but i am picking the 49ers because they are playing at home, if they were playing in Chicago, would probably pick Chicago during Gamepicks on Monday Night Countdown last night
Troy Aikman-I think that a field goal kicker having trouble is similar to a golfer in a slump, you miss it right and than start thinking too much, to the point where you start missing it left, people start telling you that all you have to do, is kick it straight, but it isn't that easy though!
Greg Gumbell- Just like that, the Cowboys are back in the hunt, as they only trail the Browns 13-10 now!
Troy Aikman- I am sorry,but did you say that UCLA won yesterday to which Joe Buck replied Yes they did,i just forgot to tell you!
