Week 5: On the Record

Add Rich Eisen's name to the list of people who now have a weekly column. I like Eisen, and I think "Total Access" is probably the best sportscast that doesn't involve video game-diagramed plays, commentators yelling at each other, or segments where hosts re-enact plays on green carpet made to look like a football field. But that's just me. (Thanks to reader Rich C. for the link.)

If Eisen's column last week really did lead to a series of events which caused Maguire to cut down on his "Watch this!" phrase, then Eisen deserves to be sainted.

Does that imply that Paul McGuire can read? Maybe he has an assitant scour the internet for refrences to his name and then read the articles to him.

Can he add 'You talk about (fill in the blank about something no one was talking about)'? And that applies to a ton of announcers.

does anybody read charles robinson on yahoo sports? or watch the stream featuring him and larry beil and chris carter?

i like their content and think Carter is one of the better analysts, but i'm curious as to what other smart fans think.

Holy crap, Eisen writes a lot. He must be trying to challenge TMQ for "longest regular online column about football, or anything else for that matter."

Also, Do not be fooled, Magwire is beyond hope.
