It’s a legitimate question and one that was asked by Bill Williamson on his AFC West blog this week. My response is among the ones he included in his follow-up post today.

In this week’s “You pick it” question on Bill Williamson’s AFC West blog, I followed my heart and talked about the Raiders, specifically Al Davis and his inability to make a decision regarding the team’s head coaching position.
I don’t know if Williamson puts these responses in any order, but it’s always nice to have the pole position of prominence and my comments are featured first this week.
You know the drill by now. Bill Williamson has a “You pick it” question on his AFC West blog each week. More often than not, I write in with my response and, fortuntaely, Williamson often posts my remarks. This week, I opted to chime in on the Chargers seeing their season come to an end.
With the Chargers’ loss on Sunday, the season is over for the AFC West. But Bill Williamson’s AFC West blog forges ahead. As always, Bill had a “Sound Off” question of the week. This time he asked if the Denver Broncos made the right hire by naming Josh McDaniels head coach. To read my thoughts and the responses of others, check out the full post on ESPN.com.
It’s a busy time of year in the sports world, and you can tell it’s rubbing off on me. Three posts in one night! The hat trick comes, once again, by virtue of my thoughts being included on Bill Williamson’s AFC West blog. This time I’m weighing in on the AFC West story of the week, which I believe was the Chargers playoff win over the Colts.
Perhaps more than any announcer today, Dick Vitale is synonymous with his one sport—college basketball. But tonight, the bald, one-eyed basketball wacko who beat the ziggy and became a PTP’er will take part in an ESPN gimmick that features a switcheroo of announcing crews.
Vitale will team with play-by-play man Dan Shulman to call the NBA game between the Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat. Meanwhile the crew of Mike Tirico, Mark Jackson and Jeff Van Gundy will call the college contest between Duke and Davidson.
Is it a ploy by ESPN to drum up ratings? Of course. Will it work? Maybe. Will I be watching? You better believe it.
I love both of these announcing booths to begin with. Vitale is a polarizing figure. Either you love his passion for the game or you’re annoyed by his over-the-top enthusiastic delivery. Personally, I love it, and can’t wait to hear his take on the NBA action. And Jackson and Van Gundy are the best analyst duo in the NBA as far as I’m concerned, so it’ll be interesting to hear their views on the college game and the pro prospects in the game, especially Davidson star Stephen Curry.
Dick Vitale’s one-game announcing stint has me thinking about other one-time switches I’d like to see in the NBA this season.
Merry Christmas to everyone. Once again, my response was included on Bill Williamson’s AFC West blog on ESPN.com. This week I wrote in about my thoughts on the Broncos-Chargers division title showdown.
You know the drill by now. ESPN’s AFC West blogger Bill Williamson poses a question, I respond, and, more often than not, he posts my comments along with a few others.
It’s been a nice system for me. This week my response to the AFC West story of the week focused on the Chargers’ big comeback against the Chiefs. To read my thoughts and more, check out Williamson’s most recent post.
It’s no longer a surprise to see my comments on the ESPN.com AFC West blog of Bill Williamson, and that’s a good thing. For the second time this week, my response was included among the ones Williamson posted. I ranted about Randy Moss before. This time, I chimed in with my choice for the story of the week in the division, the Broncos losing another running back to injury.
I’ll keep writing, and hopefully this trend will continue.
Hell yes, I would boo Randy Moss. The ‘Sound Off’ question of the week from ESPN.com’s AFC West blogger Bill Williamson asked if Raiders fans should boo Randy Moss upon his return to Oakland this Sunday as a member of the New England Patriots.
My answer was a very strong yes. Read it and the other responses here.
