OK, so I hadn't watched Sunday NFL Countdown for a whule until last week (Michael Irvin ruined it for me, so I didn't watch much at all last year). I watched fo about 20 minutes and just couldn't take it any more. So I turned it on again this morning and I lasted only about 5 minutes this time. I thought they had learned their lesson with Michael Irivn, but they just magnified it by adding Keyshawn Johnson AND Emmit Smith. One of these guys would be bad enough, but BOTH.
These guys are worse than Irvin. Add them to Mike Ditka, and 3 of the 4 "analysts" can barely string together an intelligent thought on the air. Tom Jackson is the only one on the show who ever makes sense and sounds smart. I love Tom Jackson, but I hate to see him having to sit there with these 3 guys.
Keyshawn tries REALLY har to be profound. It doesn't work. Emmit is actually a fairly smart guy, but looks completely uneasy in front of the camera. He locks up when he's asked about anything and winds up just agreeing with the other guys.
It's sad what this show has become. Once upon a time it was something I looked forward to watching. Now they've stretched it to 2 hours and have staffed it with people who just aren't good on TV. I can't be the only one who thinks this. ESPN does some things that just doesn't make sense.
