I don't know how else to say it. The guy just shouldn't be anywhere near a microphone and if you read this ESPN (which I know you do) please get rid of the guy. I know that you spend a ton of time prepping people before they go on-air. Well if that's the case....When he's asked which 0-2 team would be falling to 0-3 could he say the Chargers?
It's not like we're talking about 5 or 6 games here....we're talking about two. 2 games. The Chargers were 1 and 1 coming into this week. And Emmitt is also the early leader in the clubhouse for the dumbest quote of the year........
His biggest gaffe came during the Week 3 edition of Sunday NFL Countdown, while debating the question of whether Moss can be a leader in New England. At least twice Smith uttered this sentence: "You cannot change the stripes of a leopard."
I'm pretty sure ESPN just edited out the part when he talks about Leopards there at the end. ProFootballTalk.com says that one of the main reason he was "let go" from the NFL Network was because of being unprepared, and I think that's pretty obvious. The guy was a great Running Back, but he's just not cut out for this business. He doesn't know the name of anyone in the league, he mispronounces basic words, and he doesn't seem like he prepares for anything. Please get rid of him. I'll let you keep Keyshawn if you get rid of Emmitt.....just anybody but him. I would take 1,000 Tiki Barbers over him.
