Homework for Football Announcers

NFL games in which both teams have losing records will typically not get a network's top broadcasting crew; however, it is unfortunate when an experienced play-by-play man fails to do his homework and, thus, repeatedly conveys wrong information.

Thus, after Titan Drew Bennett failed to make an easy catch early in the game, CBS announcer Don Criqui explained that the play was an unusual miss for the "sure handed" Bennett. Criqui repeated that statement several times through out the game, contrasting the easy miss with several more difficult passes caught by the supposedly sure handed Bennett.

Of course, Titans fans know that Bennett has a reputation for making spectacular catches while occasionally muffing an easy one, which is exactly what the wide receiver did today.
