Ex-Bachelor To Cover College Football For ESPN And NFL For Canada

Friday, August 31, 2007

ESPN has hired away yet another individual. This time it's ex-Giants QB Jesse Palmer from the Bachelor. He will also be featured on TSN and CTV in Canada somehow. Basically you won't be able to miss the guy...

Former NFL quarterback Jesse Palmer has signed a broadcasting deal with TSN and CTV. Palmer, a native of Ottawa, will provide NFL analysis on Mondays for TSN's SportsCentre and also write a weekly football column for TSN.ca. Palmer, who starred on the reality show The Bachelor, also will work as a New York entertainment correspondent for CTV's eTalk.
He'll be on ESPN's College Football Live, and if they ever head out on location you college kids need to bring a ton of roses to throw at him.

If you ever needed any further evidence that all you have to do is be a mediocre athlete in New York City and you get to be famous and get more media doors opened for you than your peers.

But hey, I'm not complaining. It seems like the first college football analyst ESPN has made in years that didn't have some kind of connection to Notre Dame, Michigan or Ohio State.

Wasn't he an analyst on a few games last year? I vaguely remember him being... not awful.

I want to say I remember him being Vasgergian's (sp) partner on Fox last year. I think he got stuck doing a bunch of crappy NFC West games.

He is surprisingly pretty good, so we'll see. He was with Ron Pitts last year, and yes all he covered was 49er games.

He's better at analyzing women than football.

Atleast he was alright when he was here at Florida.

I agree...he was pretty good last year...but credibility will always be on that guy's back (as a player and because of the reality gig). He also platooned at Florida as well.

What the hell am I talking credibility questions for? It's ESPN and Canada!!
