Re: Yet another reason why Cris Carter is a moron

Why does ESPN hire all the idiots? (millen, ceratto, carter, etc) Oh, ratings...I forget. Stupid people that cause controversy > intelligent people with facts to base their thoughts on.

Re: Yet another reason why Cris Carter is a moron

Thanks.

People forget how highly regarded Millen was just a few years ago, and that multiple networks have employed him

But yeah, let's pick a couple of people and extrapolate it across the entire company.

Everywhere you turn there is a media outlet so people do and say things trying to stand out in the crowd. Problem is that most of the time it actually just makes them look stupid.

Re: Yet another reason why Cris Carter is a moron

15 years ago did anyone ever think Deon Sanders would be a more reputable contributer in the NFL media than Chris Carter?

When was Millen ever highly regarded? The only time I can think of is when he was playing in the NFL. Ever since his tenure at Detroit, he's pretty much been on the wrong end of jokes. Also, I think you took that wrong (and personally) Smoot about my comment towards ESPN. My reference to them hiring "all the idiots" was to some of their commentators. (much like NFL has JLC) I realize they have a good amount of commentators that do a great job.

Re: Yet another reason why Cris Carter is a moron

When Millen was a TV analyst prior to his time in Detroit he was considered one of the best in the biz.

Chris Carter is bad...but then there is Plaxico:

Re: Yet another reason why Cris Carter is a moron

It's easy to forget that before he presided over the worst eight-year stretch of any NFL team since the 1940s, former Lions president and CEO Matt Millen was thought of as a pretty astute football guy. As a fast-talking, no-holds-barred analyst with CBS and Fox from 1992 through 2000, the former linebacker (and the only player to win four Super Bowls with three teams) was lauded for his sense of humor, knowledge and passion for the game. Millen was equally well-versed in offensive line play and defensive coverage schemes, and seemingly so destined for stardom that some around the Fox network offices called him Baby Madden. Says NBC analyst Cris Collinsworth, who worked with Millen at Fox, "He was the second-best announcer in football in the opinion of a lot of people."

Re: Yet another reason why Cris Carter is a moron

Millen knows his stuff, at least as far as communicating to the fans. its almost like saying you were a great player, so you should be a great coach. doesnt always translate

Just so I can calibrate who you think are "smart" anaylsts that ESPN OUGHT to hire, can you provide a few names?

And if Joe Theisman is on your list, I will exercise my option not to pay any attention to what you have to say on this matter.
