    The reference to ESPN-Boston is probably the key to his hiring...he will be their pro perspective for that website and will give them some more defensive input on air as they seem to very offense heavy at times.

    Hopefully this also spells a big cut back in Mark Schlereth and Mike Golic's time on their shows

    Bruschi will be very good on TV, he has that type of personality. I'm surprised ESPN hired a former Patriot. ;)

    Bru probably knew we were moving into a 4-3 and that his chances were even more limited

    Damn, was hoping that he'd find his way over to NBC so that he and Rodney could make me give a **** about SNF.

    I don't know what time Rap had this, but Burton mentioned this to DeOssie on Sports Final..I heard it and..was happy for him...Good...even though I hate ESPN...maybe the balance will start to change.

    NBC lands Rodney. ESPN lands Reiss and Bruschi. CBS and NFLN must have their heads up their collective you know what's. NFLN passed on Reiss as Schefter's replacement and CBS invested in the FSNE retreads and Maz to launch their new radio station. It's almost comical now watching CSNE as they pimp their cross programming deal with WEEI while Felger sits there.

    Bruschi would have been the ideal replacement for Marshall Faulk. Being based in LA for All Access probably took them out of the running. Working out of Bristol is kind of a no brainer for Tedy. Too bad they can't seem to get their Boston radio station to compete given their enormous resources being anchored in the region.

    This is what I was expecting from Day 1 of his announced retirement... I know there was a strong contingent of folks expecting him to go into coaching but I couldn't figure out why Tedy would give up being a player and missing half his kids lives to being a coach so he could miss ALL of their lives.

    He had offers for national commentary after his stroke - ESPN seemed like the natural match just a few hours down the road in Bristol, CT.

    It's a good match for Bruschi and ESPN.

    Maybe ESPN will have less of an anti-Pats spin on everything, with Bruschi there now.

    Man, do I have to start watching ESPN now ?? :eek:

    I only hope Bru will be allowed to talk freely unlike some folks who were taking our side during the 2007 witch hunt. Why Bruschi why ?? :mad:

    Re: Bruschi joins the enemy


    I wonder if some of the talking heads will be so quick to rip the Pats with Tedy sitting there.
    Would Tom Jackson have said his infamous "they hate their coach" line if Bruschi were sitting there telling him he's FOS......?

    Re: Bruschi joins the enemy

    It's waaay ahead. Tedy won't back down. I mean, he is not the Great Siant everyone here tries to make him out to be - but he's not going to take that crap from ESPN. If an analyst says something untruthful, he'll correct them.

    Re: Bruschi joins the enemy

    Why do some of you seem so afraid he'll bash his former team? And if he does criticize them it probably will be thoughtful and without malice. Is that so bad?

    Re: Bruschi joins the enemy

    This will make for some interesting conversations off the set between him and Tom Jackson!

    Not that there will be any enmity, but I can imagine some more light being thrown on the 2003 situation.

    Re: Bruschi joins the enemy

    As much as ESPN is the enemy, I'm thrilled about this. Bout time we get some Pats flavor on ESPN. Plus, we don't have to go any Sundays without seeing Bru.

    Now, who wishes Rodney will join Tedy in Bristol? I'd like to see those two going back and forth.

    Bruschi and Marshall Faulk sharing the same ESPN discussion table at some point this season? :eek:
    Please, please make it happen! :popcorn:

    Congrats, Tedy! Perfect opportunity for you and your family. :bye2:
