Daunte's Inferno




YIPS from Steve: Just downright depressingly ugh-leeee.

I will say this, though: I thought the MNF Madden/Al Michaels combo schtick lacked sufficient gravitas on Monday nights. Boy howdy, does it stink even more on Sundays. I'm sorry, you've got two of the greatest sportscasters of all time on one show (Costas and Michaels), but Football Night in America has got to be the biggest vacuum suckage I've ever seen on prime time tee-vee that was not actually a political convention featuring Pat Buchanan as a speaker.

MNF used to be pleasantly amusing: 9 times out of 10 the game stunk and you could tune out after the first half, or at least catch Patricia Arquette being the MILFette pyschic in peace all the while safe in the knowledge that the hard part of the week---getting up for work on Monday morning---was at least out of the way. Now, not so much.

I guess I picked a bad week to give up huffing glue.

With Marino it was "live by the pass, die by the pass." With Dante its just "die by the pass."

"I'd like to see our crowd be supportive," Dolphins coach Nick Saban said. "No one likes to get booed. I don't think players like to get booed. I think it helps the other team feel confidence."

Then, umm, maybe Dante shouldn't suck so bad, eh? As an old school, well as old school as a 31 year old can be, Dolphins fan I wish they'd have gone after David Garrard (QB for the Jags) or Chris Weinke (QB for the Panthers) in the off season.

Now 2 games behind the Pats and Tedy Bruschi . . .

By the way, I never realized that both Belichick and Eric Mangini were Wesleyan grads . . .
