I saw this one article, I forgot where, but it was the top 10 worst announcers of today. It was every well known announcers. Like, how can they all be bad? Again, people over think things.

And same for when the referee team is announced. Last week it was almost like the game was already a loss when we found out who the refs were.

Never mind that the ****ing official should throw the flag!
ya then Phil Simms said something like the WR needs to grab the DB and throw him out of the way. They need to get a Offensive PI call to show the DB dominance.

Does he not know that would cost the team huge?

The announcers have to say something, I actually like the Simms/Nantz team and don't perceive an anti-Broncos bias. The color commentary guys have to take simple things and expand, which is why they all say stupid crap like the "threw the ball" too perfect.

I've heard Simms say plenty of pro Broncos stuff over the years, your tin foil hat is too tight.

I don't mind them, actually I really do like Nantz...And Simms did Super Bowl 32...but Simms defense of the blatant PI that wasn't called made my blood boil.

However, we are undefeated when Nantz and Simms do our games. That takes the sting out of their pure bonafide Bronco hatred and absolute conspiring Patriot worship.

Agreed

Simms is the best in the business, he is pretty much down the middle when it comes to calling games. The Broncos were in control for the majority of the game, Simms' job is to keep the audience interested if the game seems pre determined.

He pointed out and repeated the non call on Julius Thomas on first down in the end zone more than once for instance

Yes it might be revenge because Chris Simms was also an assistant coach for the Patriots in 2012............ Humm ... I smell a Belicheat fart so McD can't be far behind.

There are too many ex QBs announcing games. They end up just being apologists for the QBs in the games they're covering. They also go overboard in being apologists for the rules changes that have helped the passing games.

For me, the best analyst is Solomon Wilcotts. But since he's not a QB, he won't sniff being part of the #1 team.
