Default Palmer and Pollack

Unfortunately I couldn't go to the game and had to listen to these 2 morons all night. What are other people who watched the game on tv opinions? To me, they are mighty full of themselves and terrible at what they do. Calling players by the wrong name. Pollack said that hit on Vic Hampton wasn't helmet to helmet, but shoulder to helmet. Jessie Palmer talking bad about JD. They didn't point out that we gift wrapped a first down for UNC with the Sutton facemask call and made it seem like UNC put together this amazing, long drive for a TD. Just ridiculous. I'm just gonna have to mute the damn tv next time these idiots are on.

I think one of them pointed out that the Chaz call didn't look like facemask to him, and the replay showed that it wasn't. That penalty saved their scoring drive.

I heard them say that after the play. But once UNC scored, it was like they just put together some amazing drive for a TD

Actually I think Pollack does a fantastic job. All commentators make mistakes and misspeak, including our own play by play guys occasionally.

Pollack mentioned the phantom facemask call multiple times. I thought he was much better than Palmer last night.

Actually Pollack, I thought, said the Vic hit was dirty and should be a penalty. Said something along the lines of it was unnecessary and that there was no way for his helmet to get below Vic's, since it would have to be below the ground to be lower.

I actually liked them last night. Enjoy Palmer's insight to the Spurrier offense and Pollack's gives some good defensive insights. I did disagree with some things they said about JD, but they are never going to always say things you like.

Pollack talked smack to the dumbass Palmer when Palmer called Clowney lazy. Pollack said the d-line players will take one play off here or there because it's the fat guy's code. They're so much bigger it can wind them, and this offense has a higher tempo than other offenses.

I thought they were fine. I typically dont pay much attention to what is said but rather watch for myself.

And I dont know what people expect out of announcers. I would like to see others try and do live play by play and see how well they can keep up with all the names and everything going on. Slip ups happen, and they are paid to be opinionated and when that opinion doesnt favor your team, it doesnt mean the broadcaster is bad.

I agree with the OP. These guys were horrible lastnight. They are typically just bad but last night they over achieved on their horrible-ness. They must not have conditioned in the off season.

They had their moments when they were off, but they both gave major props to Williams Brice. And they loved our O-line. I heard more positive then negative last night, but these guys have pissed me off in the past.

You think he'd show more loyalty to the coach that got his sorry ass drafted in the fourth round. He never even came close to having NFL skills, but Spurrier made him look good which got him drafted.

I liked Pollack because he would make predictions that the others wouldn't. Like when he said the game was over and the other 2 wouldn't commit to it. Pollack was like "make a prediction if you're going to make one, but this is over." I thought that was funny. I guess he doesn't mind breaking the announcer code for truth over PC-ness.

Default Re: Palmer and Pollack

Pollack is VERY FAIR, even considering that he played for Georgia. He is VERY objective, and very gracious, as another poster, above me, put it. Pollack said the facemask was bad call.
Palmer loves Spurrier, but was ragging the d-line. But, he didn't say anything that Spurrier didn't say in the presser.

I'm going to re-interate something here: There was a time where ESPN didn't even mention our names. They put Carolina vs. cLIMPson on TV, once in the 80s, and that was it. They put us on sparingly in the 1990s and we were never in the conversation.

Fast forward to the Steve Spurrier years. We've opened up just about every season on ESPN. They had an EXCELLENT pre-game show, where the major announcers were on a desk, at the field, something they ONLY do when they have Gameday at the venue, or, at bowl games. They showed "2001" in it's entirety. The whole evening had Carolina in the spotlight.

Really, some of you guys are being super picky.
