What the ****. This was a great thread until you mentioned Chris (Cris Kris? Kristof?) Carter. I didn't mind Salisbury at times because he use to make fun of himself all the time, which made me think he was down to Earth, but after that Clayton incident I went back on my presumption.

Man why do we always have to give Recievers a shot at sportscasting? In my opinion Mark Schlerth and Mike Golic are two of their best commernators, which should encourage them to go after more former lineman. Tom Jackson is also pretty good but he was a Linebacker, nevertheless, go after guys who played in or near the trenches.

And as much as I hate PFT, they seem to be right on the money in their criticism of Emmit Smith.

Wow this post of mine has like 4 seperate thoughts.

What could he have done worse than the text message photo of his pee-pee?

NFL Live and Monday afternoon on ESPNews used to be my favorite shows. What else can Heard It Through The Grapevine destroy?

One bad ex-Viking talking head for another bad ex-Viking talking (whining) head. I'll never forgive "Droopy Dog" for his comments about Monk and the HoF. Carter is a crappy analyst and I hope he doesn't last.

Alright I take back everything bad I said about Salisbury. Carter is a huge downgrade.

Yeah, my guess is they wanted a "veteran" as opposed to a "rookie" that they had to develop. And the veteran pool is kind of dry right now.

But I don't know, I wasn't involved

How in the world did ESPN find a way to get rid of Sean "I'll walk from here to DC" Salisbury and screw it up? Is it really that hard to find talent to do this stuff? I know we are all arm chair QBs about football and should mostly just be ignored for those football opinions but as for sports journalism IT IS ABOUT US. It is about what we like and what we want to watch and I cannot imagine there was a great viewer push for such a dud like Cris Carter. Why is this stuff so obvious to us and so hard for the numb nuts in charge of ESPN and their ilk to understand?

They're just aren't many available former NFL players with television experience at the moment. But everything is always "so obvious" to those not involved (and that includes me)

I am guessing his "body of work" had more to do with it rather than one singular incident. Of course in one incident his "body of work", so to speak, didn't get him fired at the time, which is unbelievable, so maybe they just decided he needed some time to finally get his ass hauling down I95 towards DC as he promised.

Well, couldn't they have at least made an attempt to bring back Marty? I wonder who else would make a good comentator? It's not like the bar is set high with guys like Hodge and Emmitt.

I wish though that they could find more Ron Jaworski types. Sure its fun to tease the way he sounds when he disects plays, but he always brings quality information to the table. On top of that he rarely seems bias. Even when the Skins played the Eagles last year on MNF he seemed to call a fair game.

Or maybe they get Jon Miller to switch from Baseball to Football. I also think Steve Young and Tom Jackson are pretty good. Lets see, who else? As stated before I like Golic and Schlerath (sp?). Ray Lewis would be an interesting one.

In my opinion Fox has the best group of guys, but then again they only have to work once a week during the season so maybe they just have more energy.
