The commentators in this game were the worst I have ever heard. Pay attention to what they say and write down your favorite missed call, saying ect... and we can vote on the worst.. there will be plenty of opportunities in this game.

Figured maybe this will give us a little break from all the bickering going on here. Some of the things I heard come out of this dudes mouth had me laughing so hard I was in tears.

Normally I would totally agree with this statement, but this dude last night takes the cake. He kinda reminded me of the commentator from the movie " best in show"

My favorite from last night for Alfred Williams - "Orton and Lloyd are the best passing combination in the league".

Sorry Manning and Wayne, Brady and Welker, Rogers and Jennings, Rapeherburger and Ward and Ryan and White; Alfred has spoken.

LOL "What position would this dog play? Is he a tight end?"

Mine was " There is a penalty on the play, this will go one way or the other. "

Oh Please, Williams probably should have dialed down the homerism a bit but other than that they were not that bad.

I heard him say that and right now I have to agree that you won't find any two playing better. It was on a comeback route where Orton threw the ball before Lloyd made his break.

Think Roc Alexander getting burned but this time Roc doesn't play for us.

There were countless times they called the wrong names or didn't say a name at all because they obviously didn't know who it was. Plus missed many things going on and made many wrong calls (such as saying that Rahim lead with his helmet and blasting him for it). I like Alfred, but it was pretty bad.

Vern is more of a golf and fbs commentator. He has classic calls in golf majors. The only thing killing me last night was Alfred saying the word "ball"

Or when he said the Bill's Offensive line is missing on introductions. I understand it did not come up on his screen but it sounded as if they were missing.

He did blast him for like 5 minutes and only showed the replay once. Hilarious!

"Last year the Broncos were 32nd in terms of yards allowed, 31st against the run and 32nd in points allowed. That's not really what you want from your defense."

Informative stuff.

As big of a fan when #91 was playing, he is not the next player to go broadcaster. Has that white dude ever see a football game before last night? It was awfully bad presentation. More glitches than a game of Madden, now thats bad.

There's a flag down on the 41. This will be interference one way or the other.

Lundquist was not bad in his day; he's just way too old. It's the Pat Summeral effect.

Alfred spews silly **** all the time on his radio show; no surprise it continued.

And my favorite call was the DEEEEEEEP play action pass COMPLETE to DYER!

Williams - "till the ref blows the ball"

The mis identification of players was retarded, that fumble that never happen when number 26 (can't think who that is right now) picked it up and the announcer said it was Champ and he never bothered to correct himself. Pretty sure even casual fans knows champ wears 24,

Williams was awful. Lundquist was struggling, but many times only to fill in the silence from Williams.

Williams is a high personality guy, but it seems clear he's not really cut out for color comment. His analysis of the offense, including that comment that Orton to Lloyd may be the best in the NFL, was beyond awful.

That tipped Orton pass was intended for #86. They both claimed it was Lloyd, and I said wtf? That started a 5 minute argument with my wife, she claims it was Lloyd and said **** no it was 86. She said I need to get my eyes checked but I'm pretty sure I'm right? Anyone back me up on this?

You were right. If that pass was going to Lloyd it was 10 yards under-thrown.

Verne Lundquist is a legend, what you people want Gary Miller back? I give KUSA props for actually going out and getting a legit announcer and not let Drew Soicher and Susie call the game...

Alfred is a total homer, that's his act, it is what it is. He's an ex Bronco so that figures and he's a little out of touch I agree but overall you take what he says with a grain of salt.

You guys realize this is PS local broadcast and Williams won't call a regular season game right?

I did find it odd that a guy who has a local radio show didn't know the players by number or position but it was his 1st game.

I found it more entertaining than when Reggie Rivers called games. They just need to learn who the players are and it will be fine for PS.

Verne lives in Steamboat and has followed Denver sports for years now
Alfred is just a homer probably hoping for some way to get Elway to give him a job

It was better than the Dallas feed where they were holding interviews with Romo etc while our offense was on the field in prewk1

Agreed, Babe Laufenburg should be giving scores out on the 4:30 local newscast

I agree with the OP. The announcing and especially color commentary was bad. Sorry Al.

This. We might have screwed up their OL, etc, but at least they made an attempt. Dallas didn't even attempt to acknowledge there was another team in the same universe as 'America's Team'

Williams telling Elway he 'owed' him another super bowl wins the lame statement.

Verne is great. Anybody who watches the SEC on CBS can attest to this.

Maybe the Broncos need to hire Gary Danielsen to do color.

OK...3rd and 9....continues to call the game.

Lundquist typically does a fine job for CBS, but he mailed it in on that broadcast. He should be ashamed of himself.

There are thousands of starving sports announcers out there that would have given their left leg to broadcast that game.

Loved Alfred. Wish he would have stood up alittle more for the D on the hit.
