The Panthers beat up on the Redskins 44-16 on Sunday to move to 10-0. Due to the uncompetitive nature of the game, you could perhaps forgive a broadcaster if they weren’t overly enthused at each of Carolina’s five touchdowns. That was not the case, however, on the Spanish language radio call, courtesy of broadcasters Jaime Moreno and Luis Moreno Jr. Here’s how it sounded when Cam Newton hit Greg Olsen for touchdown in the 2nd quarter.
Never has a basic five-yard touchdown pass evoked more passion. This guy puts Gus Johnson to shame.
Compare Moreno’s call of the touchdown to that of Thom Brennaman’s on Fox, who could not possibly seem to care less that a touchdown was just scored, and you tell me which one is preferable?
Most of the lead broadcasters in the NFL today (Joe Buck, Jim Nantz, Al Michaels) are relatively even-keeled no matter what is going on. While you could argue that calls like this overdo it, I think we’d all be better off if Jim Nantz yelled “GOOD, GOOD, GOOD, VERY GOOD, VERY GOOD, VERY GOOD” after a big score. Or just make Jaime Moreno and Luis Moreno Jr. the broadcasters for the Super Bowl this year.
