Thumbs up Jerome Bettis to join NBC Team this fall!

He's just announced he'll be on the Sunday Night team on NBC w/Bob Costas and Chris Collinsworth... He'll be doing the first game in Pittsburgh.


He just did an interview with Bob Costas in Tourino, at the Olympics. They also mentrioned something about issuing the SB rings that night in Pittsburgh. The opener.

Said he will be doing pregame with Costas. Not the play by play.

He's more mainstream vs Fox being a players' station. I would have preferred him with Fox & Bradshaw also, but I'm happy for him, in any case.

Bettis to join NBC's NFL broadcast team

NEW YORK (AP) - Next stop for The Bus: the broadcast booth.

Jerome Bettis joined NBC on Sunday as a studio analyst for Sunday night football games.

"I am looking forward to this new opportunity and to still be involved in the game I love," Bettis said.

The former Pittsburgh running back retired after helping the Steelers beat the Seattle Seahawks 21-10 in the Super Bowl this month in his hometown of Detroit.

His first game will be in Pittsburgh on Thursday, Sept. 7, when the Steelers receive their Super Bowl rings.

"It will be the proudest night of my life," Bettis said. "I will finally get my ring and I will start my new career in television in front of all the Steelers fans."

The Bus ended his playing career after 13 seasons, retiring as the NFL's No. 5 career rusher. In recent seasons, though, he was relegated to more short-yardage or goal-line situations. He finished with 43 yards on 14 carries in the Super Bowl.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks NBC's channel looks like crap. Kinda had a feeling he would join a broadcasting crew sooner rather than later.
