I wish they would add Mike Golic. He is a regular on NFL Live and has a good speaking voice. Knows his stuff too....(He picked the Steelers at the beginning of the season to make it to the super bowl ). Plus, they need some defensive player analysts on the panel(only one now is Tom Jackson). They have WRS , QBS and da coach Ditka.

What?? Emmitt Smiff was released. Good, I can't stand the guy. He couldn't pronounce anything that ended in "th". He also struggled in pronouncing a word with the letter "s".

My favorite Emmitt'ism was probably "Hine Ward".

I may be the only one but I wish they would bring Mike Irving back. I thought he was great

Good - Mr. Speech Impediment can now go and mumble to himself in private. Proof-positive that not every ex-jock is cut out to be an analyst on TV.

Here ya go..lol

The nation's long nightmare of Emmitt Smith's vocabulary on ESPN is over now that his deal expired. But is anyone really ready for the possibility that Brett Favre could take Smith's place on the Worldwide Leader? USA Today has a note on the possibility:

Signing the supposedly retired Brett Favre would bring in a star. Norby Williamson, ESPN executive vice president, says ESPN hopes to meet with Favre next month: "He's a funny, dynamic guy and would add to anybody's coverage."

Call me crazy, but I've never really pictured Favre as a TV guy. On the one hand, it's clear he loves attention, but on the other, his "good ol' boy" persona just seems like it's one built to spill clichés left and right. I'd imagine that if Favre was picked up by ESPN, he'd be able to break down who's playing hard, and who is tough as nails.

In other words, he'd bring the kind of stuff to a pregame show that is nice to hear from your grandfather at Thanksgiving, but awful to hear in real analysis. But what do you think about Favre as a possible studio talking head at ESPN or anywhere for that matter?

I FOUND a Super Bowl 43 Ticket with Jack Ham's autograph after the game was over in Tampa and we were taking photos of the post game ceremony.

Go back to dancing, Twinkletoes - you don't have to talk to dance.

The only other commentator worse than Emmitt is Shannon not-so-Sharpe.
