    That was a cute announcement NBC did ... from Torino.

    Jerome has always seemed like a classy man. And Maguire is an easy act to follow.

    Does that mean he will replace Maguire?? I hope so that man is unsufferable.

    Yeah, why doesn't TV football broadcasting all get together and just start him at the top, replacing Al Michaels with him. Absurd. He should be tested on one of the many sports shows like ESPN News as a "beat analyst". Shows you how desperate NBC is.

    cosell's jock-ocracy

    this is why cosell quit football broadcasting.
    journalists and knowledgeable reporters were being replaced on tv by ex-players who know nothing about the craft, who just show up for broadcast time.
    consequently we get regular segments like 'jacked up' instead of regular pieces on teams' impact on towns, gambling and football, lives of football wives, lives of players' families, changes in construction of uniforms, what's in the turf use din fields, tailgating stories, etc.
    i love jerome. i want to see what he has to say on a show. but when there's a story, like coaches getting fired, or what really happened with mike tice, ex-athletes don't even know where to start. so we get michael irvin's routine instead of genuine reporting.
    and the game becomes more like entertainment, and less like a sport.

    Give me a break, please!

    That's great. You know I just didn't get enough Bettis over the last several weeks.

    Didn't the Pats put the kabosh on the "bus" back in 98?

    I've had enough of this guy and the media's butt-kissing affair with him.

    it'll change, soon enough.

    this is the nfl equivalent of warhol's 15 minutes of fame. it's been joe montana. and reggie white. and brett favre. and tom brady. now it's le bus.
    the next bus will come along soon. it might be eli, or one of da bears, or somebody.
    i try to just hunch my shoulders and weather the storm.
