Pace Says He was Misquoted by NBC’s Collinsworth

The Chicago Tribune today talks about how new Bear Orlando Pace says NBC color man Chris Collinsworth misquoted him on playing shorter guys:

Bears left tackle Orlando Pace sees no reason to panic about getting beat a couple of times Sunday night by Broncos linebacker Elvis Dumervil, even if one analyst believes it has been an ongoing problem for Pace. After the 5-foot-11-inch, 248-pound Dumervil nearly sacked Jay Cutler in the end zone on a second down, NBC color commentator Cris Collinsworth said: “When we talked to Orlando Pace, he said he has trouble with shorter guys because ‘As I get older, I have trouble bending over.’ ” Pace denied making such a statement. “I just told him I have to bend my knees more because I’ve always had that problem, being that I’m a taller guy,” the 6-7, 325-pound Pace said. “I didn’t say I have a problem with littler guys. “[There’s] no concern. It was just a few plays where I have to do my technique a little bit better.”

    Chris collingsworth is the worst announcer i have ever heaard. When he did the Steeler game last nite, he was so biassed for the steelers, he sounded like the teams cheerleader. Give me someone who can give unbiassed commentary
