Joe Theismann At ESPN, 1998-2007

Thursday, September 27, 2007


Joe Theismann is officially done with ESPN. According to ProFootballTalk, Joe and the "Leader" have reached a settlement and Sunshine is officially released from his contract....

ESPN spokesman Mac Nwulu tells us that Joe Theismann is no longer affiliated with the network.

Here's the official statement: "We have reached a settlement with Joe Theismann to end his association with ESPN. We thank Joe for his many years of work for us and wish him well."
Seems like a smart idea considering they were paying the guy millions to do nothing. Oh I take that back....he had this article at the end of August on young players to watch. Great article....445 words of pure million dollar journalistic genius. Happy trails Joe. I'm sure our paths will cross soon enough (as soon as FOX signs you to a 10-year contract).

The big question still remains: Who will ESPN hire to reach its quota of ex-Notre Dame players?

I say Tim Brown

See, I like what ESPN did here. They took a guy who might have not been performing close to what his potential was, and put him on the bench. I'm a firm believer in the old adage that you need to produce to be an effective quarterback in the National Football League.

Signed,
Joe Theesman

Maybe he can go back to selling infomercial shit with Cathie Lee Crosby, or maybe Steve Garvey.

Theisman sucked. I know that's a deep response.

What is Theismann's allegiance to the Seahawks? Aside from enjoying a decent tuna sandwich when in Seattle?

Joe just was too shy. He needs to open up more. Well he could always sell reverse mortgages or become the spokesperson for AARP.
It was a misscarriage of justice.
They should have moved the ESPN
crew to Monday Nite, but no they
thought that some loser like Jimmie Kimmel might bring some entertainment to the game.
That's like asking Britney Spears
to sing The National Anthem.
And bringing in Tony Kornheiser in for his pearls of wisdom.
That's like going from smooth to annoying in one fell swoop.
Monday Nite Football is unwatchable
with the clowns in the booth now.
They should get rid of everyone in the booth and start over. They all suck.
