    I have been a big fan of the NFL network but I'm starting to tire of the overt agenda of some of the "analysts."

    I found myself tonight getting better coverage on ESPN which I hate to say.

    Actually, this is why I like the NFL network. It pushes ESPN to do a better job. NFL Network, for the most part, has only one agenda- to promote the NFL as much as possible.

    Yeh but who are they going to get to say "Pay the man!" every time they have Joshua Cribbs highlights?

    My approach is this: Once I identify an analyst who simply doesn't do a good job, umm, analyzing, I stop listening and stop watching and change the channel. Or, at the very least, I take what he says with a grain of salt as I'm not going to flip off a good channel because of one nut. For instance, I can honestly say I have managed to avoid hearing Marshall Faulk talk at all this season other than a few times prior, or during, the Thursday/Friday/Saturday NFL Network game telecasts.

    Others, like a Trent Dilfer who seems real thorough and pointed in his approach, I seek out when I can. I purposely listen to him Monday mornings on the Cowherd show, for instance.

    I don't need an idiotic screaming head telling me what to think to enjoy and/or know more about football. What I can, and always will, appreciate is someone who makes me think in a more intelligent way that I might not have been able to do on my own.

    Not gonna get that with Deion, Theisman, Faulk, etc.

    I guess it's genius what they do because, as much as I hate the NFL Net cast... I can't look away because of it. Some of these guys are such idiots that I can't bring myself to change the channel to see what utter stupidity will ooze from their mouth next.

    It is so tasteless for Deion to lobby for players to get paid on a national broadcast and I predict that soon, NFL net will have to gag his outbursts for such. And don't even get me started on Dukes or the king of all morons- Warren Sappp.

    Deion is there to promote Deion, and whatever pet corner he decides reminds him of himself.

    He's there to wear tacky suits and let you marvel at how big his head is both literally and figuratively.

    Good point. I believe Trent Dilfer is the best at talking football out of all of the media personalities out there.

    Deion entertains me, I don't agree with some of the things he says but then that could be said about every single media personality out there. I don't take anything from these guys as gospel

    Really? Did you hear him talking about the Saints-Cowboys during pregame? And any of his other stuff within the last two months? If so, I don't know how you can say he knows his stuff. He's just been flat out wrong. I don't care if people have a negative perception about the Cowboys, but they need to be rational and informed. Faulk is neither.

    The NFL Network needs to get rid of Faulk.....and add D Woody. I would love to watch a show with Irvin, Deion, and Woody.

    So did Dilfer stop being an idiot when he started giving Dallas props?

    Yeah, I could care less if he's critical or not. His analysis is deep and insightful.

    As for the poster propping up Faulk, I fail to see how he has demonstrated to know much of anything. Other than to look like an idiot.

    It's one thing to be critical of this team. Frankly, for 13 years we have done nothing but hand out reasons to be critical. But it's one thing to question a December stretch, wonder if Romo can win the big game, mock Phillips or say we'll miss T.O. ... from saying the things Faulk says. I mean, suggesting Ware's not an every-down player? Really? Yeah, he knows his stuff.

    Wow, you were on the bandwagon early then since he was just a guest analyst on NFL network in 2006 and was still playing in 2007.

    I like Trent Dilfer the best on that network, tries to be fair and not as agenda driven as most.
