Question of the Week

Maurice, Bakersfield, CA
Subj: The men behind the mic
In your opinion, who’s the worst NFL broadcaster of all time?

That honor belongs to former Monday Night Football commentator Joe Theismann. Although “The Squirmin’ German” may have been a great quarterback, his career as a broadcaster has been somewhat more dubious. In describing the tenacity of an NFL draft pick, Theismann once said, "He'll take your head off at the blink of a hat." On another occasion he tried to show off his mental acumen by claiming “Nobody in the game of football should be called a genius. A genius is somebody like Norman Einstein.” Let that be a lesson to all of you to remember to put on your helmet before taking to the field.
