I didn't want to watch ESPN last night after the Eagles won because I figured that's the only team they would be talking about. So I decided to turn to the NFL Network and watch the highlights of all the games and ESPN is still the superior network.

NFLN shows highlights and no post game reaction? Why would there be no post game reaction especially when some teams lost by a winning FG? All they did was show the highlights and the final score and then went to the next game. So I was forced to go back to ESPN because one thing I give the network credit for is they always show post game reactions from coaches and players and the radio call.

So that's two bad things about the NFL Network

1. The highlights on Sunday Night
2. The Thursday Night Announcers

I would rather watch neither and cry by myself about how much the Jets suck...

I love Brad Nessler and Mike Mayock

I prefer NFLN, only because I can't stand Chris Berman and crew.

So is there any other sports channel I can watch to see highlights besides ESPN and NFLN? Or do I have to turn to channel 1990 to see george michael's sports machine?

Except ESPN shows about 3 minutes of highlights and then goes back to the other sports for 30 and then 3 minutes of highlights despite the fact that Week 4 of the NFL > The MLB Post-Season Race....

Even with that said, I don't care too much about post-game conferences unless they're gauranteed to have some sort of hilarity ensue.

You don't want to hear what your coach has to say after a tough lost?

Anyone else miss the "old" NFL Primetime? The one where Chris Berman did about 2 mins of highlights for each game.

Not a fan of the way they just cut right to the 3rd quarter on some teams and just show a few plays.

This is what team websites are for. They usually (49ers does anyway) post the entire presser soon after its over. I know that I couldn't care less about what 90% of the other coaches are saying after their respective games. I want to see the highlights from the game and the final score.

Yeah those were the days. You looked forward to primetime after watching the games all day long. Now primetime comes on at 3pm on Monday which is beyond retarded

I like Chris Berman, I can't stand anyone else on ESPN...

But I rarely watch ESPN anyways, but when I do, I am somewhat entertained by him.

NFL Gameday Final is always Epic. Marshall, Prime and Playmaker have outstanding chemistry and give solid insight and analysis, especially Playmaker. In plus, he wears the nicest suits on TV. And that crew is always extremely entertaining.
