...says you and Favre. My boy Forrest Gump and I find riding lawnmowers PLENTY entertaining.

To be honest, I don't see this as a good fit either. Not terribly entertaining when he speaks, doesn't seem too smart as to the Xs and Os to the game (his biggest talent/flaw was going off the cuff on any given play) and...well, I don't know. I can't put my finger on it as to why I don't like this move too much.

I'll still tune it, but not expecting much. Maybe this is a ploy to get John Madden on NFLN?

That was what I thought as well, I don't know if he's got a good personality for shows like that. I think he'd be decent after a game (like the post game TNF crew) but not really an "analyst."

Sweet. Him, Heath Evans and Jamie Dukes have now finally configured the dream team of Packer haters. Should be fun to flip on NFLN and constantly be reminded of how terrible the Packers are.


Amen.

"Brett what are your thoughts on that?"

"Real. Comfortable. Jeans"

cant get any worse than warren sapp as an analyst


Curious, do a lot of people find Sapp a poor addition? I've always liked him on Tv.
I think he's horrible. He's nothing more than a child who tries far too hard to act cool with "swag". But hey, I don't watch NFLN, so I'm fine.

I wonder if he'll actually wear a suit... The nicest thing I ever saw him wear was a polo shirt after a game.

Anyways, he's probably bored since he can't coach high school football anymore.

That's what they said about every postseason game Favre played in after 1996

Sapp still had one of the greatest quotes in NFLN history tho when he said "Al Davis knows football. 1960's football."

I'm wondering when the NFL Network will get someone decent other than Eisen and Mooch.
