I thought this would be a good article to share for those Red Zone fans out there.



LOS ANGELES – It's late in the fourth quarter and Andrew Siciliano is calling out audibles.

"One and four!" he yells, gesticulating and pointing like Peyton Manning on third and long. "Let's go to six!"

Unlike the Denver Broncos quarterback, the host of DIRECTV's Red Zone Channel is studying eight defenses at once, particularly the three whose opponents have the ball within 20 yards of the end zone near the end of Week 7's slate of early NFL games.

Each of the 12 afternoon games is assigned a number. At this moment, Game 1 (Tampa Bay Bucs at Atlanta Falcons) and Game 4 (Chicago Bears at Washington Redskins) are split on the screen live for viewers. As Mike Glennon and Josh McCown try to muster comebacks for their teams, Siciliano watches as the Detroit Lions' Matthew Stafford heaves a 50-yard pass towards the end zone on third and 18, where Calvin Johnson jumps over three Cincinnati Bengals defenders to catch the ball for a game-tying touchdown. Once that highlight is queued up, the host's mic cuts in as they show the play from Game 6 (Cincinnati-Detroit).


All comments are my own. Unless specifically stated, my views do NOT represent the views of DIRECTV

Since I have a radio/TV/film degree from college, I would love to be able to be in the Red Zone Channel studio/control room some Sunday.

The opportunity to do that would be a good prize for DirecTV to give to their longtime Los Angeles-based subscribers. Just saying... :)
