I was listening to the Bears radio coverage of last night's game and was blown away at the detailed and entertaining analysis performed by Color commentator.....Tom 'Somebody",

Really added depth by explaining the mechanics of the game while at the same time complimenting and conversely ripping players on both sides.

Or if you listen to Boomer doing the Sunday night games; he is excellent.

I've noticed this year Dawson is rambling more and more; and really doesn't add depth to the play by play. And always negative without explaining why.

He needs to be replaced. (Won't help the terrible product currently on the field; but at least we would be better entertained)

What say yea? Agree or not that we need a new color person?

Don't be pushing Lenny "The Cool" off into the sunset. So what if he's not a great color commentator? You don't throw out a Chiefs legend. We don't have enough of them.

he repeats PROTECT THE QB 100x times a game. No shit Lenny, that said, let the dude have a job until HE wants to quit. He earned that much.

We can 'ill-afford' to let Lenny go! I love it when he says 'ill-afford'.

He is a bit cantankerous at times of late but given the team that's trotted out for the last few years I would be too.

He's fine. People are way too hard on play by play people. It's not an easy job. I can't talk more than 10 minutes without mis speaking about something

I think he's still pretty good, and he's Len FREAKING Dawson.

BTW, the color guy he's talking about is Tom Thayer, a member of the '85 Bears Super Bowl team.

Lenny's been in Chriostasis, (sp?) for ten years now. You are hearing taped responses.

Once scientists are able to reverse the aging process, he'll be back on the field.

They're close, I'd expect him to be the starting QB within the next decade.

I really can't stand listening to Len Dawson. No disrespect, but he is waaay to negative about everything. It seems like he has a hard time keeping up with the action.

What the fuck is there to be positive about right now?

Personally I wonder what keeps him from retiring.

I think Lenny does a good job. I've heard quite a few different NFL teams local broadcasters, and I think Lenny's above average. Most of them are terrified to say anything at all negative because they're afraid of losing their jobs. You could hear a game with a 2-7 team, losing 31-3 and you'd think there was nothing wrong with the franchise. At least Lenny doesn't act like everything's super-dandy because he's afraid to get fired. He might not break things down as well as some guys but at least you can tell he's as disgusted as the fans are.

Well, i can't really comment...I am one of the ones who prefers the national broadcast.

I will say that i love Len, but if his Chiefs broadcasts are as bad as his sportscasts were there at the end...it is probably time for him to go.

I may have additional comments later when the blackout comes.

If you want to LYAO and be thankful Lenny is still somewhat coherent listen to the raider radio network play by play.

I'm pretty sure one of those guys is drunk every week.

You don't need to retire him and no one will accept it because he's too much a figurehead.

Just add another guy for color or whatever.

I also am not getting detailed analysis.

Anyone else have to turn to post game on another radio channel ,METRO SPORTS or Chiefsplanet to talk details or learn details?

Add another guy on the broadcast team 101fm!

He doesn't really do a great job, but he's Len Dawson, so STFU.

This. I watch on TV and listen to the online feed from 101 through my stereo system. Pause the DVR long enough to sink up the audio and it is is perfect.
I cant stand the TV announcers.

The mere thought of the subject of this thread is dangerously close to warranting a neg rep beat down.

If len is gone who are the chiefs going to dust off and prop up to remind the fans that we once won a superbowl. He is a prop to demonstrate that we weren't always a joke of a franchise.

OK; I'll confess.

I wish Len wasn't such a prick literally everytime I have ever seen him in public. Aside from that, he does a decent job on Chiefs radio. Key to winning the game almost every week is protecting the QB. lol

I think the Chiefs broadcast is really strong overall.

ROFLWell since your calling for the removal of our Hall of Fame QB color anlayst and thought this was thread worthy I figured at some point you would have paid enough attention to hear these amazing announcers say "welcome back this is Jack Mehoff along with color analyst Tom the brilliant "somebody."

No need for the stupidness and lame attempt at humor. Why not throw in "firing up the satellite dish on top of my car" or something else just as ignorant so you get to use the R O F L emoticon.

Met Len 4 times over the years. Perfect gentleman everytime. Even signed a couple of autographs for rude fans that asked while he was eating dinner. Maybe you two just don't have chemistry.

It's stuff like that why regrettably I can't ever turn my back on the Chiefs. That day was one of the happiest moments of my life.

Thats cool, and I understand people are just people I don't hate the guy or anything I have just had bad experiences personally.
