The Ravens and Falcons played a great game last night (which gives me the chance to bring backJaime Edmondson), but the main theme on Twitter was the how bad Matt Millen and Joe Theismann were as analysts for the NFL Network. And that has carried over to the blogosphere this morning, including here and here. But, like I said, the real fun was on Twitter. Here are 13 (since we're unlucky to have Millen and Theismann in the booth) of the funniest Tweets hammering the duo.

If you actually want an example of why so many people are down on Millen and Theismann, just listen to their commentary on Falcons wideout Roddy White's game-winning touchdown. They never once mention that White pushed off and should've been called for offensive pass interference. Then when play-by-play announcer Bob Papa brought it up, Theismann's brilliant analysis was, "He pushed him the last time he caught the pass. He wasn't gonna get it that time and he wasn't going to get it this time."

And Now Proof

Howard Stern Show producer, Gary Dell'Abate appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to promote his new book, They Call Me Baba Booey. Toward the end of the interview, Kimmel gave Dell'Abate a chance to show America that he really can throw a baseball despite this debacle from a Mets game in 2009. However, Dell'Abate did the opposite of redeeming himself. You can watch Part I of the interview here. And you can watch Part II, which is all about Dell'Abate's first pitch and features his latest attempt at throwing a baseball, here.

Oh, No. Not Again!
