What I said about Klatt has nothing to do with homerism

He is not a homer and I wouldn't want him to be. Furthermore, I thought he was pretty unbiased and fair most of the time. Others think I am picking on his knowledge? That is not true either. Haven't you ever had a commentator get on your nerves for some reason and you can't just put your finger on it? I think it has to do with ego.

I used to be one of the guys on this board defending his football knowledge and reasoning when he was on local radio while so many of you were bashing him during the transition between Embree an M.M. Yesterday I got a taste of him that maybe some of you others have noticed before that I didn't. He is so much like Phil Simms.

I think Phil Simms is very knowledgeable too and I don't even agree with Bronco fans that think he has something against Denver, but he still annoys me. I think Simms is an egotist who takes his self way too seriously and when he is wrong about something he really looks foolish. Unfortunately, I am beginning to think Klatt is in the same mold as Simms. During the pregrame I was listening to Barnett on the radio. They brought Klatt in to say hello. It seemed as if Barnett wanted to have a little light-hearted fun. Klatt didn't. He was very brief and impersonal. He's on to bigger and better things I guess, or maybe he just didn't have time to talk because he was on the air with Fox? who knows.

By the way, I loved the play-by-play calling of the game. The announcer did a great job building the excitement on every play. Those of you who were at the game should listen to the highlights from the TV broadcast especially on Lindsey's last touchdown run. Wow. Talk about emotional building excitement. "Lindsey! Lindsey!! ... LINDSEY!!!"
