Lol at people getting mad...did I say I'm as good as tom brady? Did I say hes not capable of deep throws? Nope said 90% of his throws are like 5 yard passes which is true....they lead the league in it and post the stat almost ever week lol

I almost fell out my chair when I saw he threw a 20 yard pass to branch till I saw there want a defender within 10 yards

Somebody need to make a vid of every single completion hes made this year and link them back to back lol
So that season he threw, what was it like fifty? Yea definatly fifty td passes, those were all 5 yard screen and dumps, right? lol, but yes they have been plying short an awful lot this season, and thats ony because somebody must have told belichick he couldn't do it and win when he was chillen in the offseason.

Yes there is...

As I've already pointed out, Collinsworth wouldn't call Peyton Manning "Peytty".

If you don't have a problem with it, then that's fine...

But there's no question that as a commentator, it's unprofessional to refer to someone who lists his name as "Michael" Mike.

"Mike" is the casual name for "Michael".

That's the definition of unprofessional.

This aren't freinds sitting around talking and s**t.

These are professional broadcasters doing a telecast that is on National TV going out to 20-30 Million homes.

It's unprofessional on Collinsworth's part.
and If you are looking fr professionalism from ESPN, or sportscasting in general these day, lemme know when u find it cuz i been lookin ever since sports nation started

Lol hell yea especially when 90% of his throws are 5 yard checkdown and underneath routes I could prolly throw
Vick is a 55% passer so he can learn from a true passer his damn self.

Did commentators call Michael Jordan "Mike Jordan"?????

I don't know why, but that s**t was annoying the hell out of me last night, and for me felt like it was a little disrespectful...

Now I'm not comparing Vick to Jordan, but I'm just saying, the cat's name is "Michael Vick", and this dude refused to call him that...

"Mike Vick", all night... Like they're best freinds and s**t. No, you're a commentator who's job is doing play by play... Call the man by his name.

MICHAEL VICK


Was anyone else bothered by this?
i maybe mistaken but i remember looking at something that said that he wanted to be called "mike vick", actually im positive that i read that somewhere. many people still refer to him as michael but he wanted to be referred to as mike

What is your point?

I have no problem understanding the concept of shortend names...

My point is, when it came time for Dan Marino to list his name as something, he listed his as "Dan Marino", not "Daniel Marino".

That's what it is...

And when Michael Vick had the same option coming up, he went with "Michael Vick", and not "Mike Vick".

Respect that.

You're job is to be a professional commentator... Call the man by his name, the way it's provided in the media guide made just for these Commentators keep right on front of them during every game.

It's true. They would be saying how he's using advanced mind control techniques and he's using signals that only white people understand, they're massing against us all!!!

Easily the worst thread of the year. Be careful though, if you offend him he might call you unprofessional.

By the way, apparently it isn't ONLY ME...

I just found this posted on DenverPost.com from a couple of weeks ago:

When did Michael Vick become Mike Vick?

Cris Collinsworth is driving me crazy. He can’t call him “Michael Vick.” He can’t even call him “Vick,” which is what he should be calling him.

Instead, the NBC color commentator has called the Eagles quarterback, oh, 350 times tonight, “Mike Vick.”

Is it Mike Jordan? Bob DeNiro? Al Michaels, who seems to be aware of his partner’s peculiar habit, has been calling him “Vick” or “Michael Vick.”

Maybe Collinsworth knows something we don’t. But even he does, I wish he would mix in a “Vick” or a “Michael” once in a while. I swear Collinsworth can’t say his name without saying “”Mike Vick.”
