Does Derrick Brooks have a bad history with the Packers or something?

    This guy craps on the Packers every chance he gets. I watched him make his picks the other night for the NFCC game. He said basically that the Packers had no chance. They are a poser team.

    Then today on First Take, he and Warrick Dunn were doing their Good, Bad and Ugly for the week. Dunn said that his good was Rodgers performance against Atlanta. Derrick Brooks cuts him off and says, "We really can't get too excited about what Rodgers did, I'm not going to be too impressed with it. It was more a product of Atlanta's defense just playing that badly." Dunn reminded him that Ditka called it the best QB performance he's seen in the playoffs period. Brooks still was not impressed. Said, he was okay in the performance but that's it.

    WTF is this dudes issue with the Packers. God people like that piss me off. What a toolbag. Why do some people have such a problem acknowledging others successes?

    What's his problem with the Packers?

    I think Sapp is the same way..maybe it's the Tampa/Packer thing..that was a strong rivalry there for a while.

    If people hate you, you must be doing something right.

    Derrick who? Never seen him do anything on TV or anywhere else, and on the field, an overrated linebacker who was a product of a system, and that as soon as got some age on his bones, was promptly kicked out of town.

    Not true. He's been on the Packers' bandwagon since the beggining of the playoffs, and called Rodgers the "ultimate weapon".

    He's still pissed that the Packers spent years slapping around his Buccaneers.

    Its the Tampa GB thing. Sapp freely admits he HATES GB because they used to get their *ss kicked all the time by them and hated coming to lambeau. What happened with Sapp and Sherman didnt help either. Brooks is the same way. Nice guy though, just hates the packers.

    It's ok Tony Dungy made his picks for the SB yesterday and it was Chi/Pitt. It was a shocker that this was also coming on MLK day. As you all know the HC's for the 2 teams are African American.

    Brooks was on the Bucs when they got handled by the Packers in the 90's. So that could have something to do with it.

    I don't have a problem with the vast majority of NFL analysts. I never was a fan of Michael Irvin, but as time has passed I have come to like him more. Trent Dilfer is a bit overly critical sometimes and I'm not a big fan of any of the NFL analysts on yahoo.com(Cole, Silver, Tiki Barber). But beyond that I really have nothing to complain about.

    I think it had to do with more than that. Tomlin and Lovie were both from the Dungy coaching tree. He's good friends with both. He also cut his teeth in the league as both a player (won a Super Bowl) and a coach with the Steelers. He'll always have some allegiance to Pittsburgh.

    He's letting his personal feelings get involved with his picks, nothing different than what fans across the country are doing.

    Yeah the race thing never crossed my mind, but the loyalty thing with his assistants did.

    I never liked Dungy, and I specially doesn't like him on TV. He's ALWAYS against the Packers.

    It'll probably get worse with Leslie Frazier running the Vikings now.

    Gonna pull it out for the first time:

    It's kind of ironic that the players on the Cowboy teams of the 90's that I hated generally are all on the Packer's bandwagon now. Aikman, Irvin, deion. Even Jimmy Johnson to an extent. Jimmy hated Mike Sherman and I remember him basically calling Sherman a coward after the eagles game we lost after 4-26.

    "He's letting his personal feelings get involved with his picks, nothing different than what fans across the country are doing."

    Not me. I pick the Packers because they are God's team, and the Bears are the devil's. Pretty simple.

    Who the heck is Jamie Dukes? I don't have NFL Network (Pittsburgh cable is still in the dark ages), so I've probably never seen him before.

    Every single one of those analysts picks purely on personal preference. Some are worse than others. This is how I think it breaks down:
    CBS - Marino, Esiason: unbiased, Cowher, Sharpe: incredibly biased
    FOX - Long: unbiased, Bradshaw, Strahan, Johnson: biased
    ESPN - Jackson, Ditka: unbiased, Johnson, Carter: biased, Berman: incredibly biased (and he never even played)

    You got the ESPN crew all wrong. You pretty much have the opposite. Even though I think they all have about the same level of bias but it varies. Ditka and TJ are biased dude.
