a rando ex phillie is? not saying youre getting bad intel but i think rhea/al are sticking and the new host will be an actual broadcaster, not a former ballplayer.

Wrong station. Right position definitely not a random. I already said too much

He will be good at it, of course. He’s Tom Brady.

You know who’s not good at it? Drew Brees. Apparently NBC has now figured that out, long after everyone else.

Yeah and now he's saying maybe he plays again, maybe he focuses on pickleball.  Whatever that is.

It would be okay with me if he just went away.

hes being facetious there

what ha happened was brees signed on with nbc thinking it was gonna be him and tirico doing SNF. after nbc got a look at his tape, they decided to give collinsworth a contract extension. brees doesnt want to be in studio, he wants to be tony romo. hes not tony romo. so its basically a cover for a mutual parting of the ways here.

with that said, fox does have some interest for brees to be their #2 guy. the issue with it, is for someone with brees' stature, doing primarily regionalized games each weekend with no shot to ever jump up to #1 (brady) is likely not super appealing.

Romo is a special case

Why these guys think they can just step into a booth and be good?  The guy I know in the biz has been doing this shtein since college...decades of practice...

its not the guys its the networks. brees cant hire himself. the league is also involved here.

they like big names, specifically qbs, on the broadcasts. they market and push qbs as stars so its natural to have a star qb in the booth. think allen/mahomes with romo on the call. this is what they want. they pushed fox to hire brady. it factors into the game quality networks get. espn's game quality went up this year with the buck/aikman hires.

pretty dumb business but what i do know theyre all rich and i own a 2 bedroom point breeze rowhome
