I'm watching the Colts-Falcons game on the NFL Network right now. Aside from the fact that the Colts look like crap right now, this has been the worst production of a football game I've ever seen. Bryant Gumbel is calling play-by-play and has already mispronounced two player names and misidentified a couple others. Plus, the camera work has been terrible. On an early running play for the Falcons, the camera lagged behind then continued past the play only to jerk back. Later the cameras were still focused on a close-up of a Falcons linebacker as the play started and we only caught the very end of the play. Add to all of this that a good portion of the nation can't get the NFL Network and you've got a poorly run television station.
