Emmitt Back For '08? Signs Point To Yes!

Saturday, February 09, 2008

Everyone was calling for Emmitt's head about Week 3 of this past season, but he grew on us. He was the lovable loser, and he was so bad for ESPN that he was good. I mean this site wouldn't be where it is today without him. Well there's a good rumor floating around the "Leader" that he may actually be back for another season.

Via PFT...

At a time when most folks who pay attention to the television coverage of the NFL believe that Emmitt Smith will be “blowed up” by ESPN, a media source tells us that the current plan in Bristol is to bring Emmitt back for 2008.

Said the source, “ESPN isn’t crazy about Emmitt but the network feels like if they let him go, they would have been bullied into doing so.”

The source cautions that the decision isn’t set in stone. “People change their minds there every other second,” the source said.
We need Emmitt back for another season ESPN....don't make me start a petition. Hey if anything he'll distract everyone away from how annoying Chris Berman is for another year.

Return of the Emmitt?

I fully expect him to be sharp as a whistle next season.

I have confidence that Emmitt will right size his ship next year.

Here is another reason....Can you ever remember another season of ESPN pre-game when you watched every moment to catch Emmit screw up? They don't care why you are watching...just that you watch.

I don't care if Emmitt is retained. We need more Nicole Manske on ESPN. I might even have to start watching their God awful NASCAR coverage.
