    Rich Gannon fails miserably in the booth

    No, Gannon didn't like the timeout because he thought that if Graham hit the field goal, it would leave too much time for dangerous Cleveland return man Joshua Cribbs(notes) to take back the subsequent kickoff for a touchdown. You know, that dreaded post-score overtime kickoff that has felled so many teams throughout history.
    Is he gonna catch as much heat as D-Mac did when he made a similar mistake?

    He probably just forgot it was overtime. Nowhere near McNabb level ignorance.

    Same here. I thought to myself, why are they leaving so much time on the clock? Then I remembered it was OT. Just so used to those situations in the 4th quarter that it's almost automatic.

    Sometimes you can be so sure of yourself, but still wrong :P

    That is a very understandable mistake and does not compare at all to McNabb. He said this during the moment. I'm sure Gannon knows the overtime rules quite well actually, he just slipped up. He was probably just trying to fill some dead air during the timeout and said the first thing that came to mind. They had been calling the game for 5 quarters already; there probably wasn't much that hadn't already been said. I bet he realized the mistake right after he said it even before being corrected.

    I was watching when he said that, and I didnt even think much about it. Simple mistake, I dont see the big deal.

    The media is still pissed that it didn't get to give it to McDaneils.

    There is a big story about it on yahoo.com...

    Seriously, who gives a ****! The media acts like he killed a baby.

    I'm pretty sure everyone has made a dumb statement in their lives before.

    Personally, (as if you can't tell) I didn't think it was that big of a deal.

    "They do keep playing"

    That's my favorite part of the clip.

    Imagine being there it was absolutely painful, especially as a browns fan.
