how is this ********????

He is a class act guy with no off field issues, and is a great speaker. He was in the league for over 10 years... Sounds like a pretty good candidate to me...

how can you hate bruschi?

I don't hate Bruschi. I'm just tired of every single NFL retiree getting hired as an analyst without any experience in the broadcasting field other than the fact they played. Too many of them blow.

I usually don't like the ex players that get announcing jobs, but some of them do really well. I ike Trent Dilfer and Johnsen alot.

Then theres guys like Emmitt Smith and Rodney Harrison that make you think twice about having former player.

Well he is viewed as a class act, was a very good player for a while, and is well spoken. I'm not suprised.

Please watch more hard knocks so you don't ask a silly one word question to begin your posts. You'll probably see child please thrown around here a lot after this season of hard knocks.

Where did the class act crap come from? I've always heard he was a giant prick.

He was never afraid to say what he thought, especially what he thought of you personally. Alot of people that he did not like hated him, and viewed him as a jerk. He was very up front, from what I've heard and read.

I don't have a problem with him joining ESPN because i dont watch them anyway.

Yeah, this guy isn't exactly Emmit Smith.

He's intelligent and knows the game, I'm actually excited to have him aboard.

Oh great, another ESPN analyst who will have a hard on for everything Patriots, great fit with ESPN. If this were the draft, this woulda been a slam dunk pick....

Its important to remember that people don't watch "experts" to learn about the game but instead to be entertained.

I really hate it when a show gets lots of commentators. I like discussions, instead it becomes each guy just stating his opinion. I don't mind lots of ex-players getting gigs aslong as they kick them quickly if they aren't better than the previous guy and if they keep him fire an old one. Just make sure to always keep a fixed limit on how many guys are working.

He has always impressed me in his visits to studios, be it locally (radio) and a few stints on NFLN. He should be good in an analyst role.

Exactly. Basically, the people who talk **** about Bruschi didn't hear what the wanted to hear. It's funny how his honesty & forthright approach to everything has caused him to be labeled a prick. ??? w/e

Cuz your favor is what we all long for . . .

I am afraid I was correct. He clearly thinks the Pats will go 19-0. ESPN mine as well be NESN, or whatever the local channel in Boston is.

I like him too, I'm not a fan of Bruschi really but I think that he could be a decent analyst. Better than Irvin, Emmitt or Keyshawn.

If Keyshawn didn't reference something that happened in his career every other sentence, he would be a pretty good "analyst".

Smith didn't take anyone by surprise, everyone knew he was ********.

What? Michael Irvin was awesome.

Bruschi speaks well but he doesn't seem to offer anything of importance and doesn't appear to easily mesh in with the others. It's early though.

I just wish they could put together a panel that doesn't need to yell at each other and crack stupid jokes every three seconds. It doesn't have to be dry and boring, but jesus ESPN.

I have no problem whatsoever with Bruschi as a player but I'm getting really tired of these ex-player-turned-analysts. It's getting out of hand. I remember once a commentator said (I think it was Howard Cosell who said it..) that pretty soon there would be no jobs for people who went to college to broadcast for a living and he's right. Every time a prominent ex player or coach retires they're in the booth shortly after.

Not all of them are bad, but there are more bad ones than good ones.

Michael Smith must have pissed in someone's cornflakes because he's probably the best and most professional analyst they had but he never got to be a more flagship guy.
