An Open Letter To ESPN

Nov 15, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Daily Norseman

I just wanted to take a moment to point out that your coverage of last night's Monday Night Football contest was one of the most pathetic, disgusting displays I've ever seen.

The open letter says it all! I turned it off befoe half time because I couldn't stand to hear how AR has turned into the God of the Universe. If you can't find broadcasters who are impartial and report the "whole" story, then get out of the business.

I agree wholeheartedly with the open letter to ESPN. I got so tired of listening to Gruden pontificate and go on and on about Rogers and the exalted Packers that I quit watching the game before half time.

Yeah right. Another hopeless score to rebound from?
You quit watching because the Vikings stink, Ponder at QB or not

They weren't hired as newscasters, but as commentators. Are you a TB Bucks fan? I hope so.

Not much into football, are you? For those such as you, there is always the AZ Cardinals.

We've got to make sure we're concentrating,'' Frazier said. He also said: "I thought we would come out in the second half and close the gap, and it just didn't happen.... I felt like we had a good plan The Vikings planned; the Packers laughed. Again I said the same thing the Vikings planned The coaching is a joke

That was the beginning of the end for Grueden. No NFL team will want him and ESPN will tell him to stop blowing ARs...er... horn. I have never witnessed such man-love before. Is Grueden? Oops! I forgot...don't ask, don't tell.
Even when the Vikings were on offense, all you heard was AR this and AR that. Yes, the Vikings are playing poorly, the secondary is in shambles so any QB will have a career day...even T-Joke. I did notice this...GB was so afraid of Ponder/Peterson that they run-blitz constantly, even when the out-come was no longer in doubt. That shows respect....and fear.

Yeah right. GB was 'afraid'.

You have no idea of the kind of QB performance you witnessed last night.

Yes, I do. GB, the team, is having a great year but the QB is but one person. If those WRs dropped balls, would he still be so great? AR threw some balls that any competent DB would have knocked down, but what the Vikings have...geez, they never even looked to see the ball. GB ain't as good as they played last nite, and the Vikings aren't as bad either...but every dog has it's day. The Vikings were out-coached and out-played. You think AR would be undefeated playing QB for MN?

In the first place, I answered your criticism of the praise of Rodger's play.

Secondly, your simplistic assessment of a complete blowout in a conference game shows you have no idea of what you witnessed. The fact that MN isn't as bad as they looked is another indication of GB's solid accomplishment.

You may express all the false confidence you can muster, but I'm sure KC is concerned about their upcoming game against the 'overrated' Packers.

There ya go again...who said GB was "overrated"? I have no false confidence as MN recently played GB a close game. GB IS the world champs, probably will be again. AR IS putting up fantastic numbers, best ever. None of that is deminished by what I said. Football is a team sport so no one, not even the great AR, can accomplish anything by himself. I said the Vikings were out-coached and out-played, what more do you need...a cross?
KC lost it's starting QB, I doubt they will much more than a door-mat. One thing is for certain....guaranteed....AR will NOT be hyped like he was Monday nite, god or no god. If anything, that was a slap in the face of all the other GB players.

It has become a QB driven league, but hold onto your dated notions.

I stopped listening to those clowns a long time ago! I watch most games in mute because the announcers are all pathetic. I donít like biased reporting of games, I want an unbiased assessment of the game which is hard to find on any channel. Watch with no volume it is the best option!

Gruden kept claiming Rodgers is having the greatest season ever at this point, but that is false. Tom Brady through the same number of games had a higher QB rating, a higher completion percentage & threw 5 more touchdowns in addition to his offense scoring 4 more points per game. That was 2009, when the Patriots won 16 regular season games.
