Jack Gannon's development as UMBC's primary playmaker shouldn't be too surprising considering his roots as a point guard in basketball. The sophomore midfielder leads the Retrievers (6-5 overall and 2-1 in the America East) in assists with 18 and ranks second in points with 35 and credits his evolution as a player to his days running the varsity basketball team at Sachem High School North in Lake Ronkonkoma, N.Y. “When I played basketball growing up, I was a point guard. So I was always looking to feed and that translated into lacrosse,” Gannon said Monday.

Each week during the football season, I write about the Ravens telecasts on my blog and in the Monday paper. And each Monday and Tuesday, network publicists, executives and announcers, directors and producers write or call and say I am being too harsh. But each Monday and Tuesday, die-hard Ravens fans, who watched the team on TV, also email, call and tweet. And you know what they say? I wasn't being harsh enough. Fans from other markets write, too, with the same message. So, in an effort to help educate outfits like CBS Sports about how discontented some fans are with their cut-rate telecasts, starting today, I am going to try and do a post with reader comments on the telecasts each week -- usually Monday afternoon or Tuesday 6 a.m. posting at Z on TV. If you want credit for your critique of the bozos in the booth, add a line to your email or call telling me it is OK to include your name.

The Washington Redskins quarterback situation became a bit more complicated yesterday.Coach Richie Petitbon announced that backup quarterback Rich Gannon didn't take any snaps yesterday because of a sore foot he suffered in the 17-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins Monday night.The Redskins hadn't previously announced that Gannon was injured, and practices have been closed to reporters this week.The Redskins, who apparently thought the injury would heal more quickly, decided to list Gannon as probable for tomorrow's game against the New York Giants.

It doesn't happen often, but in Sunday's game, the guys in the CBS broadcast booth got it mostly right in their "keys to the game" talking points just before kickoff. Give them credit for that in their call of the Ravens' 26-23 victory over the Miami Dolphins. “Gone are Ray Lewis, Ed Reed and other key members of the Ravens defensive unit,” play-by-play announcer Marv Albert said. “The question is: what can Baltimore do against a Miami offensive line that has really struggled ... allowing 18 sacks ... a league high?

This is the kind of thing that all too often makes it so aggravating to watch the Baltimore Ravens when CBS is doing the telecast. It was late in the third quarter Sunday and a ferocious pass rush by the Ravens resulted in a sack of Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden. As the linemen were unpiling with 29 seconds left in the quarter, a graphic flashed on the bottom of the screen that read, “Ravens: 4 sacks for 28 yards.” Two seconds later, play-by-play announcer Marv Albert told viewers, “A total of three sacks now for the Ravens.” Come on, Marv.

I cannot remember watching a football telecast and learning less than I did from the CBS crew Sunday in the Baltimore Ravens 25-15 win over the Cleveland Browns. And the reason for that is simple: Rich Gannon is almost as lazy in his commitment to explaining what's happening on the field as my other favorite CBS Sports analyst, Dan Dierdorf. In fairness, Gannon didn't have stretches where he seemed to be asleep or totally out of it as Dierdorf does, but I can't think of anyone in any booth covering football, or baseball or basketball, for that matter, who seemed less interested in taking me inside the game than Gannon was with the Ravens on Sunday.

Maybe there is a TV Santa Claus. CBS Sports televised the Baltimore Ravens against the Cleveland Browns on Christmas Eve, and the network didn't force local viewers to endure Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf in the booth. Happy holidays to you, too, Sean McManus, former Baltimore resident and current president of CBS Sports. Thanks for having a little mercy on us. I'm not saying the broadcast team CBS gave us, Spero Dedes and Rich Gannon, was great guns. But it was better than we have been getting lately on the home of “Hawaii Five-O” and the 10,000 other prime-time shows I saw endless promos for on Saturday afternoon.
