I like Aikman a lot. I hate the Eagles but Jaws is by far one of my favorite football personalities. My opinion isn't about biases. I think Emmitt Smith was a turd of a football analyst but he was better than Tiki Barber. I don't want to itemize every analyst. It's just my opinion that the majority of ex-players make awful analysts. Oh yeah, Marino? Really? Sanders? Just awful, my man.
I think Aikman is fantastic and I don't want to admit that. I think Jaws is good, but I really do like Aikman, as he is ready to challenge conventional wisdom, and he talks about things other than quarterbacking. He makes salient points like defense shouldn't be judged by yard,s but points allowed etc. I think he is smart guy Usually, the players have some good things to say, but it is filtered through the position they used to play.
And as it pertains to millen. If your singular credential is having been a GM. And you were utterly horrific at said position, i think ti undermines your authority, sorry. He was atrocious as the Lions GM. His peers all 31 of them, schooled him regularly it seems, and now he is shedding light on things? Gimmie a break.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.
