    Thumbs down Rodney Harrison

    Just watching NBC and just couldn't get over how bad he is as an analyst. I mean really? All those years in the league and he really has nothing to offer and his public speaking skills leave a lot to be desired, I just hafta believe someone better was out there. It's like they cut to him for 5 seconds let him say "yeah he played well" or "he didn't play that good" and quickly get back to Tony Dungy, someone who knows something and knows how to explain what happened, why.

    Re: Rodney Harrison

    His role is to be critical of players. He's just doing what he was brought into do IMO. I didn't watch tonight but in past weeks he's been OK. He's usually opinionated.

    I've watched that show for 30 seconds in the 2 years it's been on. Pure crap. I actually like the fact that Harrison has no problem saying what he feels.

    Re: Rodney Harrison

    I think a lot of those guys have to grow into their position in front of the camera. I remember watching Keyshawn Johnson in his 1st year as an analyst - he was AWFUL. He is much better now (although still not great). Matt Millen was the same way his 1st show. He was about as animated as a rock. He isn't good by any means, but I noticed this week that he has loosened up a bit.

    Keyshawn froze during a segment on Sunday Countdown this morning. Literally froze in mid-sentence. Ironically, I think he was trying to remember Jake Delhomme's name. It's only a quarterback he once caught passes from. Although when you played on as many teams as Keyshawn did, I guess it could be hard to remember.

    Well that just summed up ESPN, they hire former players who have no business talking about their former sport on air.......

    you'd rather have non-players? who speculate about everything, instead of just some things?

    Re: Rodney Harrison

    Football Night in America is a horrible show and Tony Dungy shouldn't be in front of a camera either.

    Re: Rodney Harrison

    Most of the shows today really makes me miss the good old days on CBS.
    Greg Gumbel,Brent Musberger,Irv Cross,Phyllis George and even Jimmy "The Greek" Snyder.At least it was entertaining.
