Professional football games last, on average, three hours, five minutes and 29 seconds. And while plays and commercials take up quite a lot of that, television and radio broadcast teams still have quite a lot of time to fill.
As a result, they sometimes say things for the sake of saying them. Things that either get them into trouble or just don't make a lot of sense.
The name of this blog indicates that we're more than OK with these missteps. And although he might not want to admit it, Chicago Bears color analyst Jim Miller committed one of those lets-fill-space-by-making-an-outlandish-or-wildly-off-base-claim mistakes Saturday night when the Bears' second-team defense was being terrorized by--of all people--rookie Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins.
No, I didn't say rookie Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. See, RG3 had struggled a bit against the first-teamers, and now Cousins--selected 100 spots behind Griffin in April's draft--was dominating against a collection of scrubs hoping to make the practice squad. And as a result, Miller concluded that there's already a quarterback competition in the nation's capital.no comments
