Week 10: The secret to be a football analyst

After watching my share of pre-game and post-game NFL game day shows, I've come to the conclusion that almost anyone can be an NFL talking head. How, you ask? It's simple. If you have opinion and can LOUDLY talk over someone else, you're well on your way to announcer of the year. The louder you scream, the more correct you are in your argument. Decibels equal importance. More decibels? More important. For example, if an announcer were to say, "Philadelphia is in major trouble. Vick gets beat up and Andy Reid is on the hot seat," that's all true, but it's boring. No decibels there, so it must not be important. However, if you scream at the top of your lungs (bonus points if you talk over the other person), "The Eagles are terrible! Vick and Reid have to go! There's no hope for them this season!!!!" Now THAT equals a super important statement. Loud is good. Knowledgeable and well spoken, bad.
