How often do we hear these terms pertaining to one teams predicted success against another. ” Control the ball with a good run game”, ” pressure the quarterback” and perhaps the best one, “don’t turnover the ball” . Wow!Â Armed with that knowledge I could be the next John Madden.
Come on man! There’s really nothing new any of these guys can tell us that we don’t already know and yet week in and week out we hear the same “keys to the game” by every Tom, Dick and Harry analyst.
What a great career! Damn I missed my calling…
Just one man’s opinion
The Regular Guy
There are really only two keys.
I agree with Vic. Did you every here a sports jokey talk about all the teams that came in second. I think not. And a sports analyst has a 50-50 chance of getting it right. And if he is wrong, he just explains it away, like if this happened, then this would of happen, etc, etc, etc.
I couldn’t agree with you more. It’s not only in football, but all sports as you probably know. I love the “Keys to the Game” in hockey for example. Like in hockey, number 1 key – don’t turn thr puck over, especially in your end, key number 2 – control powerplay situations, key number 3 – forechecking. Really, no kidding!! Back to your subject, NFL. There are very few announcers that really tell what’s going on anymore. And my God, the instant replays is half the show anymore. Just wish they would let the players go out and play without all these rules and over analyze every play. And not to change subjects, some of these refs have to go. They simply cannot keep up with todays athletes. Thanks, good subject to discuss.
