I also don't know who Russell Wilson is.

Regardless of what Mike Love says, Russell Wilson is the true brain behind the Beach Boys.

I mean, between the end of Kam and the boys and the emergence of Lockett and DK Metcalf, Russell Wilson was singlehandedly the reason they were 10 or 11 win teams. They had NOTHING. The cupboard was even more bare than late-era Mike McCarthy with the Packers and Rodgers (but with a better head coach at the time).

The year Lamar Jackson won the MVP, the most valuable player was unquestionably Wilson. That Seahawks team was a 4-win team without him, and that Ravens team wins 11 or 12 with FLACCO ffs.

That's not exactly what he said, Subby, but you got yourself a green light, so good for you, I guess.

I wish I could get rich pouring out glass after glass of Jim Beam all day, just like Chris Collinsworth's personal bartender.

So, will they blame this on drunkenness, senility, or both? Racism is also a black-horse candidate. Seriously, Collinsworth should retire.

I thought he was trying out some sarcasm on Tirico to see how it would go over. But the drunk explanation works too.

Collinsworth doesn't recognize anyone not named Aaron Rodgers. Every conceivable situation reminds him of Rodgers. He tells us all the time.

What a farking airhead.

He has always been a fan boy of who ever is popular 2 seasons ago and an idiot when it comes to being the color commentator.  He was a putz as a player also.

In the NFL Sunday Night threads, they even use a drunk-o-meter for Collinsworth, or they used to.  IDK.  That comment may have nuked it from orbit.

You guys are all gonna feel bad when Chris shows his true, caring nature after his butler Hobson takes ill and dies.

"Guys, I'm not so sure that he didn't not, get both feet inbounds. On replay, we don't have the best angle, but, if you ask me, I don't know that we don't have, or maybe we did, get best - or worst - angle to review the call that they didn't get right, according to the call on the field, so I don't know if we are gonna see the angle they didn't see the first time around, when they probably didn't get it right, or maybe wrong."


THIS.
farkING.
GUY.

Mike Lombardi (former Raiders GM in the early 90s or so) told a great story about how Al Davis famously loved speed WRs.  They took a guy who was the Florida high school state 100m dash champion as #1.  Davis, Lombardi says, bragged to any and all about how their #1 pick was  the reigning state champion.  The player happened to be Black.

They flew the kid in for his Raider press conference, and Davis again says he's the 100m champion.  the player says, "thank you, Mr. Davis!  Thing is, in the state final, this white kid, he had a 2-3 stride lead on me, but the final 20 yards, he tore a hamstring, and I sailed past him!"

Lombardi:  "the player the Raiders drafted, as fast as he was, only lasted 2-3 years.  Fast as the wind, but no hands.

"the 'white kid'?  Cris Collinsworth.  Imagine that.  Collinsworth could have been a Raider."

I almost always mute games when I hear his voice, he just annoys the hell out of me. Sometime in the last week or 2 there was an issue where the announcers audio was broken for like 2 plays. It was amazing how much more I enjoyed those 2 plays when it was just crowd noise and the players barking.

He would have known who he was if his name was Jack Daniels

They still do.

And they're still dicks to Seahawks fans... so don't bother...

Oh FFS.  These guys have to talk for 3 hours, often fully improvised. He was just trying to emphasize how much Seattle (as a team) was collapsing without Wilson in on offense.
It wasn't racism or alcohol or lack of knowledge, just a crappy choice of words that get hashed over by a bunch of armchair internet folks.

Way to go stupid early.

Are you trying to claim a bunch of idiots didn't see the video of the comment nor read TFA? On Fark?!?

Oh my, say it isn't true, Buck Say it isn't true.

The Seahawks are trailing the Steelers, 14-7, early in the second half.
Correction: An earlier version of this post said Wilson injured his thumb. He injured his right middle finger.

I like how they corrected the injured digit but they couldn't be assed to update the result of the game.  Unless I missed something and there's a long delay.

/Dennis Kimetto has run onto the field...
//and NFL security is still chasing him!!

CC seems drunk and rides a high horse too often, but he sucks Mahomes dick about as much as possible so I don't think it's racism. Nobody gives a shiat about Seattle and CC was almost certainly plastered when he said that about Wilson.

The NFL has a habit of playing up athletes in larger markets and downplaying those in less profitable ones. Despite last night's loss I bet it just eats the NFL alive that the Bills are so good right now.

He lost Cinci the Superbowl. Can't do worse than that.

Cris Collinsworth reminds me as a more annoying version of Mike Wolfe from "American Pickers"

Really? Oh shiat. I gotta rethink this whole internet thing then. I've been doing it wrong apparently. Wow, really makes you think sometimes, huh.

Holy shiat that is 10000% spot on

I hate Cris so much. He will never be John Madden.
