    Re: Vinny Cerrato



    I once thought that Cerrato could bring a perspective to talk radio that no one else could...that of course being from the vantage point of a former league GM. But that hope has come and gone. A flunky GM like Cerrato criticizing Ozzie Newsome was the end of him for me. That's akin to 'N Sync criticizing The Beatles.

    I'll give him this, he has brass stones. He takes credit for successes in San Francisco and at Notre Dame that he had next to nothing to do with. Rumor has it (from a good source who used to cover Cerrato in DC) that the guy got the job in San Francisco as a favor to Lou Holtz who needed to get him out of his recruiter role at Notre Dame.

    Anyone ever notice how every bad move in DC was the fault of Dan Snyder and the few good moves were all on him?

    He had a rap in DC has a self-centered egotist who you shouldn't turn your back on. I'm sure Ken Weinman could tell you a thing or two about that.

    Sometimes I wonder if he's ballsy or just not very bright. I had to laugh when he disparagingly referred to Eric DeCosta as an "Ozzie wannabe." I'm thinking this clown is a "DeCosta wannabe."

    GOTA is spot on... Sirius/XM is the way to go.

    Except of course when I can do guest spots on 105.7 The Fan

    I'm sure there's next to no chance of me joining Rob & Vinny now.

    You think?

    I was just sitting here trying to imagine Vinnie working for Nestor.

    Re: Vinny Cerrato

    Cerrato is a waste and I only listen because of Rob Long. He is judgmental on so many levels and does not add credible information to off-set being a hag. The reality is that a lot of radio voices are simply opinion people; no real difference between them and my tailgating buddies so why in the world do I care about them. I listen to 105.7 like trying to pan for gold nuggets from time to time.

    OT, I am not a big NFL Radio fan simply because (a) I prefer talk about the local team, and (b) I have trouble listening to the National market slobber over the Big Name Teams and those who are Ball Boys for Manning, Brady, et. al. I also do not care about interviews with Coaches and Players, since most of the time it is cannned discussion; that I could probably recite. I am a Homer when it comes to the information I want; I can take some information about the rest of the teams, but not the love-fest that surrounds the nationally popular ones. However, there are two morons on 105.7 that send me to the national channel regardless; so there are exceptions to every rule.

    Of course, I come here for the real stuff if I can access it.

    Rob Long has the ability to handle his own show, bring a Baltimore perspective without being a homer and actually interacting with callers. Instead he is tied to Cerrato who was a terrible GM and a bad radio personality. I thought having a former GM would mean he would have access to great guests from the league and interesting insight. Instead he is just a windbag looking to cash a check. Give Rob his show back and let Vinnie do what he knows, coach youth hockey and order wine.

    Indeed. I can't remember the last time I listened to terrestrial radio.

    This month on Movin the Chains they're doing really in depth analysis on everything from formations, alignments, gap discipline, etc. You can email your questions and they read every one and shape their show accordingly. Great interviews too. This is the month to listen to Sirius NFL
    World Domination 3 Points at a Time!

    I always find it pathetic that some of the worst performers in positions of management on football teams (Matt Millen, Jerry Glanville, Vinny Cerrato, Charley Casserly, etc.) too often show up in either print or media as some sort of expert because they once were in a position that they completely failed at. I wish someone would do a top ten list of these losers sometime just for laughs!

    Oh, and since he always likes to boast that because he once coached he has the skill to critique everything the Ravens do, we can also include Mike Preston on this list too!

    I think Vinny is just one of those people that get upset with progress. Clearly he is intimidated by the implication of the three great revolutions of our era. Those three revolutions of course are in chronological order:

    1) French
    2) Russian
    3) Dance Dance

    Vinnie is a Bolshevik

    I beg to differ with you here.

    Not sure how long you listened, but there were several callers later on in the afternoon that indeed did call Vinny out.

    One in particular started out by saying "I'm getting ready to come at you here Vinny".

    Dude indeed did just that.
    Nothing offensive or nasty, but the guy definitely put Vinny in his place with what hew had to say.

    In some aspects, I agree with Vinny regarding wanting your player to be focused on football, working on, and perfecting his craft as Vinny put it.

    If he was, he probably could become a better receiver which would do nothing but help make this team even more dangerous.

    On the other hand, Jacoby is well within his rights to be doing what he's doing, and still staying in some trpe of good physical shape to be prepared for when the real deal starts in late July.

    Dude could be doing a whole hell of alot worse things in the off season here.

    He's entertaining as hell, funny and generally very likeable to watch, particularly to people who aren't football fans but have just simply heard of the guy.

    I got no problem with him being on DWTS.

    Second, it seemed to me from listening to him that Vinny has a bigger problem with Jacoby's personality than the fact that he's on the show. He kind of paints Jacoby as a preening clown.

    I don't agree, but I know what he's reacting to. Jacoby is an odd dude with a weird sense of humor. I think it's funny. I can see how a straight laced guy sees it as foolish.

    Vinny cited other instances going back to the Super Bowl and the Kimmel appearance. He's the same guy who rips Brandon Lloyd everytime the guy's name is mentioned, claiming when they were in DC Lloyd was a me guy who wanted to be the center of attention. I think Vinny, by extension, seems to have a problem with with "diva" wide receivers who want to be the center of attention. There is some truth to that stereotype (our own Derrick Mason, Hines Ward, TO, Moss, on and on).

    I don't know Jacoby very well but he strikes me as more of a fun loving goof (ie, Terrell Suggs) than a prima donna.
    Vinny has no room to talk. When he laughs I have to turn the station because he sounds like an utter dick.

    Also this is the same guy that had his own daily sports talk show.........as the GM of the Washington football team.

    Oh yeah did I mention the various shots that were taken of him smoking a cigar with the midget under a sun umbrella while watching the Slurs practice.

    Get the fuck out of here Cerrato.

    Pot meet kettle (and I don't think Jacoby is an attention whore at all).

    I turned it off. It was funny how Rob was clearly uncomfortable. He knew Vinnie was making himself look like an idiot. Vinnie has a hard on for Ngata, Suggs, Leach and Jacoby. Not sure what his deal is .......

    Vinnie was pretty good when he was at SF and only degenerated when he got hired by napoleon.

    I'd give him a pass on that one.

    In 1966 Unitas went to Vietnam in the off-season to entertain the troops along with Sam Huff. They were in the middle of the jungle and John said to Huff, suppose they over run us. Unitas was walking on a bad knee and Huff said it's every man for himself.

    John wasn't concentrating on football in the middle of the jungle but John's fear
    wasn't so exagerated.

    An enemy sniper once tried to kill Bob Hope but our guys got him. They were looking for it. When the General told Hope he said the sniper had a smile on his face when he died.
    Hope said he must have liked my singing.
