Cris Collinsworth is the best in the business

Justin Tuck does a weekly interview with WFAN’s Mike Francesa, and Francesa asked Tuck about the TD pass from Vince Young to Riley Cooper late in the 4th quarter last night.  Without mentioning him by name, Tuck was surprisingly honest and pointed in his criticism of teammate Mark Herzlich.

It’s a case of a guy doing a little too much instead of just doing their job.  We had a guy underneath it, went to jam a receiver, kinda took him out of his zone, and Vince Young made one of those throws that went between two guys.  If our guy does what he’s supposed to do, without doing too much, he’s standing right in that throwing lane.  But what happened is the guy a came around underneath, he’s trying to jam the receiver, takes him out of his lane, and (Young) throws it right behind him.

During the game itself, in the minute or two that NBC analyst Cris Collinsworth had to take a quick look at the replay in between the extra point and the kickoff, Collinsworth diagnosed the coverage breakdown to a tee.  Listen to his analysis:

A lot of fans dislike Collinsworth.  He’s brutally honest in his criticisms of players deserving of criticism, and some people don’t like hearing honesty about their favorite players/teams.  But one thing is undeniable – Collinsworth knows his stuff, and he routinely shows X’s and O’s during games that you might otherwise miss.  Some guys can’t even get players’ names right.  Collinsworth is the best in the business.

    One thing I’d like to say is the fact before purchasing more computer memory, look at the machine directly into which it would be installed. When the machine is usually running Windows XP, for instance, the memory ceiling is 3.25GB. The installation of greater than this would purely constitute a new waste. Make sure one’s mother board can handle this upgrade quantity, as well. Interesting blog post.

    As to Collinsworth, he is insightful though I have to admit I find his voice annoying at times.

  22. ICDogg says:

    Let’s not confuse pre-game blather with in-game analysis.

    There aren’t many guys who are good at the latter. And if they aren’t good at the former, who cares.

    Hands down the best. Has been for a while.

    Knows his shit.
    Doesn’t take himself too seriously.

  26. Jay says:

    Collinsworth is def up there, but I’ll take Mayock any day.

    1. Mayock is another good one. Love his enthusiasm. In the Seahawks-Saints playoff game last year, during the replay of Marshawn Lynch’s sick run, loved when he went “GET OFF ME” when Lynch basically threw Tracy Porter 5 yards like a rag doll.

      He also does his research. Saw him at camp this year. Any national media guy I saw all over at Lehigh was just BS’ing with other writers or NFL people. Not Mayock. He was watching the practice with a pen and pad, and taking notes. That impressed me.

      He needs to log a little more time in the booth though to get on Collinsworth’s level though, in my opinion. A bunch of people killed him after the Thursday night game for not knowing how many time outs the Jets had left. It’s hard doing a TV broadcast, and not messing up badly like that every once in a while. He’ll get there.

      Just give me guys that know the game and are going to point stuff out that I wouldn’t see otherwise. Mayock. Collinsworth. Jaws. Wilcots. Guys like that.

      1. Joe D says:

        Jaws just needs to get off the Eagles jock, you can see his homerism from space

        1. D3Keith says:

          Yup. I watched that god-awful show with him and Sal Pal and Hoge before a Eagles-Steelers game one time and it was more homers than the day before the MLB all-star game. But since it was two Eagles crushing Hoge it was great TV.

  27. Alex E says:

    Historically – and I don’t have examples – Collinsworth has usually been down on the Eagles. I’d often hear him either praising the opposing team or, if the Eagles were winning, citing how the other team just wasn’t getting the job done. This season (especially at the beginning) he’s been totally up on the Eagles. Before one game, I remember him saying, “How do you throw on this backfield?” At this point he’s tempered things a bit, but he still likes my team – so I’m happier with him. It’s not rational, but it’s true.

  28. scott ball says:

    P.S. Phil Simms su-u-ucks.

    1. slandog says:

      Sims is terrible, he should just retire. He tries too hard and it shows too much.

  29. scott ball says:

    Collinsworth is the best. He sometimes talks a bit too much, but he catches stuff quickly and tells you about the ins and outs of the game. I think Mike Mayock could be as good with more experience.

    1. D3Keith says:

      Yeah Mayock is universally respected because of the same thing. He actually teaches you something about football when you watch.

  30. AndrewM says:

    I hate him 100% because of Madden
    I get so tired of the repeats of everything

  31. Jason-E says:

    I’ve love Collinsworth as an analysts for a long time. The dude knows his shit. There is a video floating around of him giving a tour of his war room. The guy spends all week watching tape. And it shows.

  32. Joe D says:

    totally agree.. everyone hates on him becauuse he is very colorful in his analysis. he’s a class act and is generally on point. on the fl ip side everyone LOVED madden, who IMO, was terrible despite growing up listening to him…

    but thats dead on, no one wants to hear ANY criticism of their team. and just about every team on the losing end on SNF football says “oh collinsworth is so biased, he hates (x) team.” wrong…………… and plenty of eagles fans do it too so im not singling out giants fans or anything like that

    1. slandog says:

      I agree. I grew up listening to Madden as well and I personally thought he was terrible. He was too simplistic and loved certain football players and showed it too much. Collinsworth loves no one and doesn’t care. He is open and honest and usually correct in what he says. I love listening to Collinsworth during games, he by far the best going right now.

      1. Tracer Bullet says:

        That’s only true now that Favre has retired. He was on the Dongslinger’s nuts like a jock strap.

        1. slandog says:

          I remember Madden being on others balls too. The trio of Aikman, Smith and Irvin he routinly licked their balls and their were more.

          he always hangs on the top players every year. It was sick how much true love he actually had for some players.

          I live in Madison, Wisconsin so I hated him doing Packer games. I often times turned down the TV and put on the radio when he was doing the announcing. He was just terrible when Favre played. Now with Rodgers I’d bet that he’d be just as bad if not worse!!

  33. RogerPodacter says:

    is it possible that this was the design of the play and not such a blatant mistake by the LB?

    1. Jeremy Maclin's weiner says:

      No. Read the top where Justin Tuck broke down the play on the radio.

  34. Imp says:

    He was a Bengal. Everything associated with the Bengals suck. Therefore, Collinsworth sucks.

    Bulletproof argument.

  35. bdawk4ever says:

    I’ve definitely come around on Collinsworth. He definitely knows his stuff.

    1. D3Keith says:

      I would say this too. I was never a big fan because I thought he was judgey and pompous but the fact that he can talk O-line play and point out traps and linebackers not dropping into their hook zones etc. is impressive. And shows he studies.

      A lot of guys know their positions really well but don’t know much else. Like an Ex-WR understands QBs and coverages as well as routes, but he does a nice job with the entire game.

      The other thing I like about him and Al is they can talk about Derek Landri or Evan Mathis — guys some people outside the die-hard Eagles circle barely ever heard of.

  36. rage114 says:

    You are right. Collingsworth is a great analyst. He is spot on with his analysis within seconds of a play. That guys knows his stuff.
