    He's become a parody of himself but back in the day he was an outstanding color guy. He and Pat Summerall were the voice of NFC football for a long, long time.

    Is this immediate?

    Who gets the Sunday night slot with Michaels?

    Yes, immediate.

    Guessing it will be Collinsworth.

    Agreed. He and Summerall were tremendous on CBS, then later Fox. Madden never bothered me as much as others, but they were a dynamic pairing.

    Edit: Thanks for the heads-up, 2much. I cut/pasted my post from our site, forgetting that our software mucks with the links. And while Madden was never my cup o' tea, the man surely does know the game. Be interesting to see who gets that job.

    More details now on MSNBC: He wants to spend more time with his grandchildren.

    And that's all they said before going to another commercial.

    Sounds like he really struggled with the decision. Think he takes a year off and comes back?

    pseudo, your link's doing strange things. Text is right but the link formatting itself is broken.
