  • Emmitt Smith Gone From ESPN

    EMMITT EXITS ESPN
    Posted by Mike Florio on February 20, 2009, 4:33 p.m. EST
    Well, we’ll no longer have Emmitt Smith to kick around.

    After a two-season run featuring multiple new on-air additions to the English language, the greatest running back in NFL history ultimately has fared no better than Joe Montana as a broadcaster.

    Yes, ESPN has advised us that Emmitt’s relationship with the network has ended.

    There will be no formal announcement — and presumably no going away party. Or vodka-fueled roast.

    “We thank Emmitt for his contributions to ESPN and work ethic the past two years,” ESPN spokesman Bill Hofheimer told us via e-mail. “We wish him all the best.”

    So we bid a bittersweet farewell to a guy who made this job a lot more entertaining. Intentionally or otherwise.

        Greatest thing ESPN has ever done to gain more ratings..... Emmitt utterly was the worst nfl analyst in the history of broadcasting. Could Emmitt ever make sense when he spoke on tv?

            Sound more like he says " rice" .

            Making room for Favre.

            What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
            they get smoked.

                I would laugh everytime he is on TV if that happens.

                  They'd have to hire Peter King as well, since he comes in a package with Favre.

                    noo, I will miss his multiple errors in every single broadcast.
                    here are some of my favorites...

                    "Tom Brady is buyin' time for his lineman."
                    "The NFC West is probably one of the weakest... CONFERENCES... in the whole NFC. These guys over here, you have the Cardinals, you have the 49ers, you have the Seahawks, and you also have the Rams..."
                    "Wes Worker is a possession receiver that make things happen."
                    "He was coming through line to make a move and got blind sided by Al Wi... Al Wi... Al Jackson."
                    "The leadership definitely have to come from the leaders."
                    "Not only does he have the NFC East record for touchdowns, but also the team record."
                    "Eli Manning has been given the rice of passage."



                    btw, I have a good collection of Smith quotes from another mock draft site.
                    ...pm me if interested.
                    There's also some hilarious articles/mock drafts written as how Emmit Smith would write them.

                    But for everyone reading this in Buffalo and Cleveland and everywhere else, take solace in the following: As crazy as it sounds, you're lucky. Your Mount Everest experience is still ahead of you. It's waiting, and it's glorious.- Bill Simmons

                        I say give Favre monday night football. Him and Madden would make my day. Madden wouldn't even talk about the game and will just talk to Favre.

                          I think they would need to make health care free in America for them to be able to do that.

                            Sunday Night Football, perhaps?

                            Also, BRING BACK EMMITT!!!
