Warren Moon's Replacement
Thu Dec 07, 2017 10:50 am
  • I mentioned this in the off topic thread but it is certainly on topic. I was basically saying that I hope Brock Huard becomes Warren's permanent replacement as color guy. I think him and Raible would be a terrific team, both personalities complimenting each other. I always enjoy listening to Brock. I find him extremely easy to listen to, well spoken, good radio voice with a high football IQ.

    Thoughts? If not Brock, who would you like to replace Moon in the booth?

  • I know Brock has College broadcasting obligations, but if he's up to broadcasting the Seahawks each week, I'd be for that. I believe Wyman is going to be doing the subbing duties this weekend, so it might be worth giving it a listen to see how he does as well.

  • If they could get Hass, I'd be ecstatic. But I think he's an East Coast guy at heart and has a good ESPN gig right now.

    Huard would be a decent second choice as I find him a very good analyst and breaks plays down well.

    What you don't like hearing everything in threes??

    Most people would say.... He is a strong, fast, and intelligent athlete.

    Brock would say. And he is strong, and he is fast, and he is intelligent. Then ramble on and on about it.

  • Not sure bout long term, but Dave Wyman is going to be the temporary fill in.

    I like Wyman, he's smart and has a wry sense of humor, so I think he'll be good.

    There's a thread in the Off-Field forum as well as the shack discussing why Moon left, suffice it to say it's not main board material.

    I never liked Moon as an analyst. Hass would be awesome. Brock Huard would be great too.

A strong, fast, intelligent package. A package that anyone would want on their team." Which is why I can't really stand listening to him on the radio.

  • Brock is polished and competent, but he's too sterile and wooden for me. Not a lot of personality or edge, which you need in a color commentator.

    I like color commentators that are opinionated, colorful and not afraid to criticize. Brock is none of those things, he's just plain vanilla.

    I can handle Brock, though you are correct he uses too many words and speaks a bit like a robot. But he is a pro and I can listen to him do color. Now Mike Salk? Guy drives me crazy and makes me change the station. Whiny as whiny can be he says with a whine. :)

    Disagree. Wyman is a true 12. He not only played here but has a genuine passion for this team and especially Wagner.

  • As someone who doesn't really care who the commentator is, I'm genuinely surprised at how much people seem to hate certain commentators and how critical they are of them. Sure, it's cool to hear from someone like Romo and I think he's a good one, but as long as the guy explains what's going on, I don't mind that much. The hate people have for Buck, Simms, Aikman, and now here it seems for Wyman and Huard is a bit puzzling tbh. Take the SNF game. Our fans were complaining Collinsworth was slobbering all over Wentz, but if you swing over to Eagles fan sites, they were mad he was slobbering over Russ. Seems like these guys can't win.

  • I can respect differing opinions but I find it fascinating how some of us can have such differing opinions on someone. For example, the whole thing about "threes" with Huard and how his loquaciousness rubs some the wrong way. I honestly have never once thought about him that way. It's not to say it's not true, just that it never entered my consciousness to bother me about it.

    I like Wyman a lot as well. He plays the playfully cranky old lineman from yesteryear really well, and like Huard he has a high football IQ. Something about Huard's voice inflection and tone just works for me on broadcasts for some reason.

    I would be pleased with either one of them, but I would still give the edge to Huard.

    I agree, and never said he wasn't. I actually like him and much of what he has to say. Just tough to listen to and stay engaged with at times IMO.
