I was pretty unimpressed with the announcing team, and Brady Quinn in particular.
This isn't the standard "He went to Notre Dame, he flamed out in the NFL, he sucks" type of critique. But it seemed like he did no research ahead of this game, and just generally is not very observant. The short version is:
Not doing his research, and not picking up on little details throughout the game, you can see indications of why he was not a successful NFL QB. He's still new at this, so maybe he'll improve but I thought this was pretty poor for what I assume is one of their top announcing teams. Other folks' thoughts?
A few examples that stuck out:
-Amid the wondering why Ty Isaac wasn't getting more carries, they don't mention that he was injured last week until like the fifth time they drone on about his limited attempts.
-On the Speight injury, it takes like four replays for Brady to suggest that MAYBE it was the second hit that caused the injury, which I'm guessing basically everyone saw live or at worst on the first replay.
-Confusing Robbins for Nordin for two quarters. Ok, they have the same number. Still, Hart has struggled, Robbins is the clear backup....again, a tiny bit of study of the teams you're covering would put you on notice for this change.
-On the ineligible man downfield, they correctly identified that it would have been bogus on Hill, but then just moved on, then later on show no replay when they finally suggest it was on someone else. Compare that to the diligence that happened on the garbage ineligible receiver call in the Florida game.
