Default jerome bettis's NBC debut

anyone hyped? as good as it was to see the steelers play yesterday it will be good to see jerome at his new job. seeing him once a week every week will definitely take some of the sting out of his retirement. i think im almost anticipating jerome in action more than the bengals/ redskins game itself.

I think Jerome will do very well in his new job. I can't wait to see how he does. Plus he is the only one in the studio with a Super Bowl ring. So he can rub it Collinworth's face and the others.

I'd really love to be nice...but i cant. He says um between every word, I love jerome as a player just dont know about speaking on T.V. It's probably me being too Analytical im sure he will get over that.

GO JEROME!!!

Bettis won't be shy with his words

Jerome Bettis, debuting on NBC's NFL coverage Sunday, knows the trick for TV rookies is to be candid about ex-compatriots.

With his take on his old team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, the studio analyst seems promising: "The Ben Roethlisberger (injury) issue I'm not concerned about. I'm concerned about coach (Bill) Cowher and his ability to stay focused. Is this a lame-duck year? He's the glue. If he's not motivated the same type of way, it will be difficult for this team to stay together."

If you can question whether the coach who led you to a Super Bowl win can "stay focused," put on the TV pancake makeup. "I talked to (ESPN's) Stephen A. Smith, and he said don't be afraid to call it like it like you see it," Bettis says. "If a guy's playing bad, he's playing bad." - USA Today

I don't think I can stomach Chris Collinsworth even to watch Jemrome Bettis.............major puke. I'd rather listen to someones fingernails slide down a chalkboard than listen to Collinsworth.

Bettis is a stand-up guy...he should do a good job. I'm just glad I'll only be watching him on the sidelines from now on.

For away games as usual.........TV on mute. I'll take Tunch (even though I'm not a huge fan) and Hillgrove.

Correct me if I'm wrong here.

Bettis is supposed to be on tonight during the Bungals and Deadskins game right? I have not seen or heard him yet.

i guess nbc dont have a pre game show for the pre season games. wtf? i just assumed they would have a pregame show like fox and cbs does especially with all the big names they assimilated. pretty bogus to tune into a crappy assed bengals game without jerome there to reiterate how much they suck!
