“It’s Only A Start”

October 18th, 2012

It borders on an unhealthy obsession Joe has with the NFL Network. Joe watches it each and every day and, barring live game coverage, Joe can’t think of a time he doesn’t watch the NFL Network.

(Joe is puzzled by this “NFL AM” show, however. He cannot figure out what pray tell is the target audience. One moment there will be a heady discussion on how the Bengals can stop the Steelers, the next, rating the best touchdown dances. Really? And what’s with the chick? It’s as if the NFL pried one of the “Price is Right” girls to just sit at the studio desk and look pretty, which Joe understands is a requisite for a televised medium. But she offers zero insight and rarely speaks other than to offer critiques of form-fitting players’ pants and touchdown dances. What, an intelligent woman like Stacey Dales or Melissa Stark wasn’t available? Joe once asked Twitter followers what the target audience for this show must be and one reply was it was for people who fell asleep the night before watching the NFL Network; which would be types like Joe.)

One of the coolest shows is “Sound FX,” which brings viewers onto the bench, on the field and in the huddle for unequaled access to both the sights and sounds of the NFL.

This clip on the Bucs is not from that show but is from a clip on “Inside the NFL,” which shows Bucs coach Greg Schiano working with LeGarrette Blount and the Bucs offense on how to finish the Chiefs’ game.

It’s a really cool video, albeit short, and Joe strongly encourages you to enjoy it.

    I watched this last night, great stuff. Inside the NFL has pretty much the same clips as Sound FX (all done by NFL Films), and they are my 2 favorite shows. I found it interesting than Schiano made the call to throw the deep ball at the end of the first with the wind at our backs. The part with Koenan was pretty funny too (looking back of course). And of course you got to love his talk with Blount about making his read and going with it.

    Joe, the show is a requirement of their deal with Time Warner, there had to be x amount of new programming daily and one of those programs needed to an early morning.

    What a horse’s ass. I hope the real coaches have figured out how to run this team while ignoring this idiot.

  5. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Exactly what did he do in this video that makes him a “horse’s ass”?

    if you change just one noun and one verb, truer words have never been posted! very telling post about yourself.

    should read: “What a horse’s ass. I hope the real fans have figured out how to cheer this team while ignoring this idiot.”

    Miguel isn’t going to respond right now, Oregon is on TV. He’s too busy pleasuring himself to a freeze frame of Chip Kelly.

  9. lurker Says:

    wow, hawaiian, so right.

    i mean, oregon is just soooooo awesome beating that powerhouse asu 43-7 at the half. kelly’s gonna make the most awesome halftime adjustments just like urban meyer errr will muschamp. kelly wears a diaper and gorges himself so he isn’t hungry or thirsty. players must piss themselves and stay dehydrated to understand the adjustments for the asu powerhouse of the pac12.

    we know chip the dip kelly is the king of wishy-washy. he is a, what’s anti-butch?, ball-less. he isn’t a little general, he’s a giant douche 😉

    I love the fct that LGB is making Greg Olsen look like an ass, he is so open to bring coached up, that whole sequence was about him not dancing behind the line looking for a hole, like Schiano told him, trust your eyes and go, the hand gesture was great, trust your eyes and go…
