  • Draft Coverage thoughts

    thought it'd be good to have a thread for the TV coverage of the draft...since we all probably spent 16 hours in front of a TV this weekend.

    -Good job by ESPN getting a camera crew at so many prospects house. I was really impressed with how many live reactions they caught. 9 people in the green room and cameras all over the country. most 1st round picks were on TV.

    -Bad job by ESPN picking second day locations. Quan Cosby and Brian Hoyer. ouch. the Quan Cosby thing just got painful because Bill Cosby just made every comment awkward. Erin Andrews looked like she would rather be anywhere else in the world.

    -And, WTF was up with Brian Hoyer and Reebok. Reebok must've given him some money to display their logo or something. he wasn't shy about it. I spotted 3 different instances of this.
    1-at one point, he noticed he was on TV, so he sat up straight and un-wrinkled his Reebok t-shirt.
    2-Cameras on him again, and he announces that he was bored, so he "went and put on another Reebok shirt."
    3-In this same instance, he said his house was hot, so he changed, but it really looked like he just put another reebok t-shirt over the original one. interesting way of dealing with the heat.

    -That commercial where the dude says "steroids are as American as apple pie" made me want to throw my dog at my TV every time I saw it.

    -LOL at the Cowyboys bias. ESPN practically had streamers and balloons ready when the Cowboys made their first pick in round 3...immediately after the Bears unceremoniously made their first pick.

    -Where was Todd McShay all weekend??? they kept referring to him as being in an undisclosed location..but, I was confused as to where he really was. Not that I care. that guy sucks.

        NFLN >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> ESPN

        and Charles Davis annoys me more than Jamie Dukes.


        I also missed Adam Schefter

          Trey Wingo was a million times better than Chris Berman at filling time and leading the discussion.

            <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
            <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

                  i think espn needs to make some changes for next year's coverage. they should limit the number of former players at the main table to one. i think it was keyshawn and steve young that were there on the first day and neither really offered anything insightful. young inparticular was annoying because he was sucking off sanchez the whole time.

                  they should also replace berman with wingo and mort with shefter. those two get by on name recognition alone and really had trouble constructing sentences that were complete and coherent. i thought it was funny that mcshay didn't make an appearance until they were a few hours into the first round, yet they would put up his draft grades along with kiper's.
                  Now the only ones I take are the ones that I wear

                    God. Next year ESPN should get a larger rotation of commercials. I swear I saw the same 10 over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over apple pie and over and over and over and over and over and over.

                      Espn needs to focus more on the 2nd day picks. Like 10 picks go by and they'll highlight say one guy and talk about him for a good 5 seconds. I honestly dont want to hear about the top 5 guys for the duration of the 2nd day. They always show clips of the Brady's and Davis' of the world and yet they dont even focus on these later guys. Pretty annoying. It actually used to be better...but now all they care about is re-hashing the 1st round for multiple hours. You can do that when the draft is over, imo.

                      Thanks BoneKrusher^

                          Also, stop ruining picks. I want to hear the commish and be surprised. I don't want to see a guy on the phone or celebrating before the pick comes up.

                            I watched ESPN and this might have been the last year. I thought their coverage was horrible. Steve Young, Keyshawn Johnson, Trent Dilfer, Cris Carter... YUCK.

                            I have the NFL Network coverage TiVo'ed so I am going to watch that (yes, I am that big of a draft dork) to see how it compares.

                              In your defense: it has kind of worked out for you.
