WTF did Madden just say?

    Something like ...
    "Losing is a terrible, terrible feeling. You just don't like it. And winning doesn't equate."

    Wasn't nearly as bad as when he was talking about a sandwich and said something to the effect of, "It was hard to wrap my mouth around." Think Al Michaels was standing there with his hand over the mic trying not to laugh?

    He was trying to say that an NFL coach is much more down when he loses than he's happy when he wins, if you wanted to grade it on a sliding scale.

    He still didn't express it very well, nor did I just now, come to think of it.

    But this is what really bothers me about Madden--does he have to say every first name and last name of every player every time he mentions them? Even last night--if he's talking about a TD pass to Dallas Clark, I doubt he's talking about Eli Manning.

    I find myself saying huh? quite often when Madden is speaking, that or no shit sherlock. He's either over obvious or on another planet. No in between for him

    He's losing it a lot quicker than Grapes did ...

    He's broadcasting to the casual fan, to the regular sports guy (and gal), not to people who spend 25 hours a day in sports.

    That doesn't wash ... if he doesn't make any sense to us far more intelligent beings, how are the common folk going to understand?

    While I'm not enamoured with Michaels/Madden and their recitation of the obvious, they are still better than Tirico?Theismann/Kornheiser and their recitation of the inane.
