      They have nothing to add, they either a) state the obvious or b) are too radical. Not one has anything informative or interesting to say.

          I just find Rich Eisen to be genuinely funny. Also, the players who are on NFLN are far more tolerable. Warren Sapp is a bit of a jackass, and Jamie Dukes can be annoying, but besides those two, I have no complaints.

            I don't particularly like anyone on ESPN, but I hate Jamie Dukes with the passion of a thousand burning suns.

                Watching Emmitt Smith try and read a phone book would be unbelievably entertaining.

                  I like Bruschi on ESPN. Pierce could be good. The defenses always ran through him on the field and he always had the reputation of being a cerebral LB but not having the greatest physical tools. Opinionated too.

                    Meh its collecting a paycheck so you can't blame him. On a similar note, what is ESPN just a holding arena for coaches?

                          Thats becoming a dieing trend, because then reporters or journalists, or commentators are hit with the infamous "you didn't play the game so you just don't" get in nonsense cliche.

                            it's good for espn as long as they just make him give opinions and not have to cover any stories. he can't cover anything

                              I hate that guy. Talks all cocky like he has experience playing in the NFL.
