Re-watching Pats-Dolphins. Trent Green talks a TON, but is about a million times better than Dan Dierdorf.
According to Cris Collinsworth, the Denver Broncos & the Seattle Seahawks are playing like Super Bowl repeat participants, unstoppable after one game. All other 30 squads should just call it a season & give it our best shot in '15. Yo Cris, shut your stinking pie hole this instant buddy ol pal!

Dan Dierdorf, the worst ever period. I'll mute the game before I listen to him slobber.

Great article I found about football that I wanted to share. Also I so so so miss football! Before we begin, let me just say that the following all falls straight down into the mop bucket. I'm aware of this, so let's just pretend that we live in a world with no war or famine or disease or angry warlords and we all hold hands and dance around in circles every day because everything is awesome and we all have PERSPECTIVE, because people who don't have proper perspective should be thrown into jail and tortured. Good? Good. I have three kids and one television. I have one television because we're trying to limit the amount of screen time the kiddies take in, a noble parenting endeavor that is, like pretty much every parenting endeavor, doomed to fail. As such, I can't always watch football whenever I would like. I know: The horror. I have a DVR, and that means I sometimes tape games and watch them after the kids have gone to bed. And if you've ever watched a sporting event on tape delay, you know that it has ...

Trindon Holliday is one of the fastest football players I've seen, great at returning punts and kicks and he could be the X factor or difference maker in the Special Teams Play on Superbowl Sunday. This could prove to be a pivotal key, especially if the game is a stalemate at the beginning. HOF Broadcaster Dan Dierdorf has also said great things about him as a returner as well.

Hey Dan Dierdorf! These aren't your daddy's Denver Broncos. Dur dur. I only wish Indy would of had a decent defense all those years with manning. Oh well here's to the next gen.
When is Phil Simms going to profess his love to Tom Brady and the Patriots in general? He is so biased. It's like listening to Sonny Jergenson do play by play of a Redskins game. Are you watching the same game that everyone else is watching? Brady overthrows a receiver, Simms says "what a great throw-away". I don't know who loves Brady more, Simms or Dan Dierdorf.
Belichick's halftime adjustment is to place Dan Dierdorf in the announce booth. Unless he's referred to as "Tom," Brady has confidence issues.
Phil Simms is quickly becoming the second most annoying announcer in football. Where is Dan Dierdorf when ya need him?
I just lost what little respect i had for Phil Simms. He's moving into dan dierdorf territory.
The first Pats game without Dan Dierdorf in 100 years and I feel great about it.
I might be overly critical of NFL announcers but on his worst day Dan Dierdorf is simply marvelous when compared to anyone who is a commentator for figure skating. These people are a complete joke.
Ok, I've been out of it a couple if days with work and all.I saw the stories on Winslow and Geno.but what the *** did The Farrish do? Declare his undying love for Dan Dierdorf.or worse, Tom Brady? Seriously, what did he do? I missed it.
Typically by this day I would be getting excited for football, but this year it's different. I could really care less, the NFL has let things go too far. Where to start, the announcers. Dan Dierdorf, Troy Aikman and Phil Simms are the worst football guys on the planet. They share zero insight and just parrot what just happened. The ref's, they have been awful this year too, I realize there human and not infallible. The actual play of the game. I am so tired of receivers begging for pass interference when they don't make a catch. Or getting into people faces when they do. Or the *** who get up after getting a first down feel the need to get up and point there arm. It seems every play there’s always something else going on to make the game longer. They are like a dog looking for attention, "Hey look at me I can catch". I imagine this is what prison yard football looks like. I may catch some of the games or even all who knows, but if I miss them I would not be upset. Ok end of rant.
I would take Tim McCarver and Dan Dierdorf with Gruden on the side over Mike Milbury any day.

Dan Dierdorf retires from the booth...2 Hall of Fame careers. Best offensive line ever...Dierdorf, Conrad Dobler, Tom Banks, Bob Young, Rogger Finnie...add Jackie Smith to that line and no wonder Jim Hart was rarely sacked, along with the 1000 yard rushers behind them.

I would like to say thanks you very much to former NFL offensive lineman Dan Dierdorf for all your hard work as a color commentator for ABC when you did Monday Night Football and CBS working with *** Enberg and Greg Gumbel. Dan you were a great player and a broadcaster. Good luck to yourself and thanks again.
Gotta say some of my fondest MNF memories from my youth were with Al Michaels, Dan Dierdorf, and Frank Gifford..happy retirement Dan!
I wish the game was closer so Greg Gumbel would have something else to talk about other than Dan Dierdorf. All this praise as a player and commentator and no one wants to mention his underrated mustache.
Used to love hearing Dan Dierdorf, Al Michaels and Frank Gifford on He's a big part of NFL broadcast history.
Dan Dierdorf, you had a *** of a run. A MNF voice of my generation with Al Michaels and Frank Gifford.
Thank you Dan Dierdorf for many excellent years of broadcasting. He was one of the voices on Monday Night Football along with Al Michaels and Frank Gifford when I first started watching football some 26 years ago.
Al Michaels, Frank Gifford, Dan Dierdorf was the best MNF booth team.
Greg Gumbel is being nauseatingly effusive towards Dan Dierdorf

Why do Dan Dierdorf and Greg Gumbel have to be sooo terrible
Dan Dierdorf has reached Tim McCarver-esque status. And I don't think that Big Vince is still 325. He's my favorite, but I think he may have eaten Danny Woodhead.
thought no Phil Simms would've a good thing, but holy crap - I'm very glad Dan Dierdorf is retiring. He's like Jimmy *** - finds one thing to say and them says it over and over using slightly different words.
Clearly, Dan Dierdorf and Greg Gumbel don't play fantasy football. The season's over.
Dan Dierdorf was commentator for 1992 Sugar Bowl, working with Al Michaels and Frank Gifford. Rick Mirer and Jerome Bettis rallied Notre Dame and Lou Holtz to upset of Florida and Steve Spurrier.
If you are ever with me and we cross paths with Greg Gumbel and/or Dan Dierdorf remind me to punch them in the throat 󾌪
Look for Dan Dierdorf to go into business with Tim McCarver after retirement. They are two of a kind.
This Tom Brady guy is pretty good. I like Chuck Pagano. I detest the arrogance of Bill Belichek I like Robert Kraft. I cannot stand the arrogance of Jim Irsay (or his late father, Robert). I like both Brady and Luck. I'm pretty conflicted about this game. I will say Boston has been awfully spoiled in sports over the last dozen years or so. Luck v Manning would be epic next week. But there would be plenty of story with a Welker/Patriots - Brady/Manning matchup too. I'm just hoping for another exciting finish like Hawks/Saints earlier. I guess I really don't have a dog in this hunt. I never thought I'd say this... I think I'm going to actually miss Dan Dierdorf after he retires after this year. Its sad, to me, that this is his last game. I remember in college, freshman year, when he was the voice of Monday Nite Football, we had a game where we would have to drink a shot of beer everytime he said something dumb. Tuesday morning classes were no fun. I'm not saying he's gotten much better, or go ...
