Default Re: jerome bettis's NBC debut

Once the real games start on Sunday nights I understand NBC will have a 1 hour pregame show called Football America Tonight or something like that, which will feature Jerome, Costas, and (ugh!) Collinsworth.

Hard to justify that for pre-season games, since I assume that 1 hour pre-game will focus on game highlights from games earlier that day.

I am glad Jerome got a job, but after 20 years I will miss ESPN doing the 1 hour highlights show on Sunday nights before the Sunday night game. NFL told ESPN that has to go to protect NBC's ratings. I understand Berman and T. Jackson will pretty much take over Sunday night SportsCenter and run their (late) highlights show from there.

Will tune in NBC around half time to catch the Bus tonite.

There were ads for the telecast on during the NASCAR race on NBC..... Bettis was featured a few times on 2 different spots. Sounds like a natural.

Bettis said he believes this is Cowhers last season as coach.

NBC needs to lose this outside in the stands format for the Costas/Bettis/Collinsworth show - it is like ESPN College GameDay where nobody can be heard over the crowd and the broadcast crew ends up playing to the crowd rather than being able to be heard by the viewers.

OTOH it was great to see the Bus flash his SB ring to the howling mob in Cincy. Also glad to see Collinsworth continues the garbage about the Bengals losing in the playoffs only becuase Palmer got hurt - Collinsworth again confirmed my opinion he is a pompous tool.

The Cowher prediction was a repeat of what Jerome was quoted as saying earlier this week. I believe Jerome is right that Cowher is gone - I read contract negotiations with Cowher have halted until "after the season."

I wonder how far Coach Cowher's chin jutted out when he watched the Bus tell the world this was Coach's last year.

CC has always been a jackass. He was a jackass on HBO and he's a jackass now.

He falls into the same category as Ron Jaworksi.

Who is that blonde guy on ESPN who does the pregames? He was qb of one of our rivals and he hates the Steelers. Long story short, the AFCC game in 2004 he was with Marino and company in that exact same setting Bettis was in. The Steeler fans called him everything you can possible think of. I was sitting within a stone throw of this circus. He hates the Steelers and the Steeler fans hate him..........name please? LOL
