Laughing Laughing Cant wait to hear his predictions for Packer games, especially when they play the Vikings. As if Heath Evans/Jamie Dukes aren't big enough Packer haters the way it is, they add another one.

It only says he's there for the SB. I don't think this is a full time gig, just a special event appearance.

foot in the door trial gig. He's hinted at wanting to pursue a tv gig for a while and we are all aware of how much he loves the spotlight. Think he'll do alright, better then some but still lacking.

Well either way, makes me glad I don't have NFLN, then again, I don't watch pregame, post game, half time, or any other TV coverage other than the game itself.

I'm actually really excited for this. Curious as to what he'll have to say in general and I'll be very interested in any commentary he may have on Aaron Rodgers (if he stays on for an extended period of time) and the current team.

Cool.

Good for him. I don't bear him any bad feelings, and so, like anyone else, I hope he succeeds in life, and achieves what he desires.

There was a time when I begrudged him his choice of teams to play for, and was never able to cheer for him once he became a Viking, but I've since moved on. I still owe him for the decade and a half of great memories as the most exciting (and frustrating) Packers' QB of all time.

I think he'll do well as a commentator, assuming he's been able to maintain his affable personality through all the garbage he's put himself through. He was always relatable, and if he can transfer that to his game analysis.

Agreed, the last time I heard him say anything about the Pack was the week before the Divisional Championship games back in 2010. He said we'd win because we were the best team left.

I think he could actually be really good at this.

If he's as straight of a shooter doing commentary as he was as a player, I want him on TNF.

Hire him as a sideline reporter.
Assign him to do only Dallas Cowboys home games.
Bet your entire life savings on him getting a sexual harassment complaint from a cheerleader.
Profit.
