Emmitt Takes Irvin's Job

Postby deerayfan072 » Mon Mar 12, 2007 12:34 pm

EMMITT TO ESPN

As it turns out, the replacement for Michael Irvin on ESPN's pro football studio show apparently will be his former Dallas Cowboys teammate, Emmitt Smith.

Smith has been angling to get into the television business for the past couple of years. His victory in ABC's Dancing with the Stars arguably gave him some additional overall appeal, making it easier to justify giving him a seat at the grown-ups' table.

For now, the official word from ESPN's public relations department is that Smith will join "ESPN's NFL Studio Team." Whether this means that he's taking the Sunday seat previously occupied by Irvin or the periodic seat occupied by Sean Salisbury (a guy can dream, can't he?) remains to be seen.

ESPN will be conducting a media conference call at 2:00 p.m. EDT to formally announce the decision.

Former Cowboys coach Bill Parcells recently joined ESPN, primarily as a component of the Monday night coverage.

So what is Irvin doing now? As much as I hate to say it, I actually found him entertaining on that show. I still don't like some of the mistakes he's made, but I didn't mind watching his blowhard self on that panel.

I thought a couple of times Mike Ditka was going to take him out, though. Maybe they canned Irvin in an effort to save him from being pummeled by Ditka? :-? :-b

Too bad it had to be another Cowboy to take Irvins place. :-b No seriously anyone would be better than Michael.

I never really liked Irvin, I never agreed with anything he said, and I found him annoying, especially his laugh :-)

Irvin was so unabashedly ignorant at times it made it impossible to stand him. Good for Smith; I've never really noticed him and I think that's how sports anchors should be.

Tada! Didn't see that one coming... ;-7

It's mandatory for ESPN to have a former Cowboy or Steeler on their staff...people love them from their playing days which keeps them watching the station. It's all about ratings!!! :*)
