Among the negative aspects of his broadcasting were the issue of having an annoying voice, repeatedly overstating the abilities of players, ignoring line play, incorrectly predicting challenge outcomes, and saying completely incorrect things as though they were fact.

In 2016, Cris bought Pro Football Focus. Pro Football Focus is a statistical website. “Every Player, Every Play, Every Game", was the tagline of the website.

Over 200 employees work at PFF. Employees there spend their time watching, counting and analyzing every second of the games. Numbers are produced, crunched and recorded, then they are discussed and further analyzed. It’s a clockwork organization that has much dedication and commitment as a fire station.

Imagine how much this website helps coaches and players of different teams, imagine how many minutes, even hours of film and video content was wasted by players to study the opponents before every game. They were now able to study film in the matter of minutes. Every player is ranked, the strengths and the weaknesses, their achievements, touch downs, speeds, everything about every player is recorded and updated regularly.

The employees there are not treated as journalists but as data scientists, studying all day on their laptops and watching games, As their editor in chief, Chris stated "These aren’t trained journalists. They’re graders, analysts. Numbers guys. There’s not a ton of narrative in our stories. We’re very much a ‘Top 10 wide receivers in the NFL’ site right now."

They for sure take much pride at what they do, they make everybody's life easier, even betting websites, Collinsworth says “In 15 minutes of reading, you can know about a team."
