The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Week 16

8 of 8

Lack of FB – Orson Charles finally played Sunday. Not at fullback of course, but on special teams. The only reason I know that is not because he made a good play, rather because he got a penalty. Probably the first time he has had an announcer call his name all year.

Probably was the highlight of his illustrious career so far – not saying much for a guy who is a professional football player that spends more Sundays keeping Hue Jackson’s car temperature at 71 degrees exactly than he does running plays – not too hot, not too cold Orson.

As the temperature dips, he becomes more and more irreplaceable…to Hue at least.

The Announcers – Could Dick Stockton and Ronde Barbe have seemed any less interested? On the opening drive of the game, when the Bengals sacked Cassel, stripped the ball and ran it back to the 4 yard line, I thought the play had been called dead because of the lack of enthusiasm from Stockton.

It was like he was announcing two 4-10 teams…or a funeral. Apparently Dick Stockton has one tone of voice…really boring! FOX must not care how they spend their money, because for the money they pay Stockton and Barber, you would think they could find two guys more interested in the game.
