ESPN overdid the Tim Tebow story (or maybe non-story) all year. There are 31 other teams in the league and I think the collapse of the Giants could have been covered more. The Lions were a playoff team a year ago and fell apart. There were other stories to cover. However some people must have enjoyed all that Tebow coverage and it must have gotten good ratings, otherwise they would have pulled back.
I have never stopped watching a game because the announcers were bad. I might have turned down the volume.
I see and hear all these adds for Direct TV (or it is Dish Network) and that dvr’s ability to record 3 or 5 shows at once. I don’t remember the last time there were 3 things on at the same time that I wanted to watch.
