    I know this has been discussed all over the Interdoohickeys but I've never heard a grown man butcher the English language like Emmitt Smith. I mean, this goes well beyond the stereotypical dumb jock and into illiterate territory

    "The NFC West is probably one of the weakest (pause) conferences in the whole (pause) NFC."

    This is an abortion. He has to be pulled from the booth for our sake, never mind his.

    And someone get Steve Young an intelligent partner. After he waxes poetic about how good Seattle can be and how they can threaten in the first weekend of January but probably not beyond, Stuart Scott asks him.........can they beat the Packers and Cowboys?

    "Look do I need to make that long-winded comment again?"

    What a trainwreck.

    He's better than Desmond Howard and Eric Karros.

    That's part of the reason why I avoid ESPN like the black death.

    They always try and go for these "big" hires like Emmitt, which simply never work out. They've got a few guys on their NFL Live crews who could do much better...

    Eric Karros isn't bad. He's better than Eric Byrnes, certainly.

    I sleep Saturday mornings, so I have no idea on Howard. I would imagine that if he has an IQ north of six he's better than Emmitt.

    Did you watch the link I provided?

    But you're right about Byrnes.

    You had me at the thread title.

    Where does Tony Siragusa rate? Someone should tell Fox that having an on-air personality whose sole appeal is to look and talk like an extra from the Sopranos who is destined to get capped in the skull by Christopher is sooo '02. Get that schmuck-on-wheels off camera yesterday.
  12. Emmitt is hilarious.

    He's got to be doing this intentionally.

    Nobody can really be that bad.
