Smith Out at ESPN
 
Posted: February 20, 2009
Sporting News staff reports



Emmitt Smith is out as an ESPN NFL analyst after two seasons with the network, ProFootballTalk.com reports.


The network does not plan a formal announcement about the move.
Smith, the NFL's all-time leading rusher, received overwhelmingly negative reviews for his on-air work.


"We thank Emmitt for his contributions to ESPN and work ethic the past two years," ESPN spokesman Bill Hofheimer told PFT via e-mail. "We wish him all the best."

 

Good move!  He was horrible as an analyst.

He was so bad, it was funny. Unlike most of the other ESPN guys who are just bad.

Whew - I originally read the first line as Emmitt Outed on ESPN. I just knew that beejmi would already have posted a few " ride 'em Cowboy " jokes.

We all know Aikman was the gay Cowboy, not Emmitt.

The ESPN show was always my favorite NFL game day show, but I haven't watched them since they stopped doing the Sunday night games. To be honest I never really saw the show since Smiths' been there. Was he THAT bad?
I kinda like the NBC crew at the moment although I'm also a big fan of the CBS guys.

Yes. He was that bad. I am a huge Emmitt guy, but he was atrocious.
