I can't for the life of me understand why networks continue to hire the most grumpy ex-coaches and players as analysts, but you can add another one to the list. Via USA Today.....
Fox will formally announce Monday that the ex-Baltimore Ravens coach, who debuted as a national TV analyst on the NFL Network's draft coverage, and didn't embarrass himself, will be a game analyst this season. He'll work both two and three-man booths, says Fox's Dan Bell, but his on-air partners haven't been set.I just don't know about this decision. I mean Billick wasn't bad during the NFL-Network's coverage of the Draft, but he just doesn't seem like a good fit for TV to me. Hopefully he proves me wrong though.
The only thing I'm trying to figure out is where he will fit in. Will they add him to a top team like Kenny Albert and Daryl Johnston (anything to get rid of Siragusa) or team him up with a Vasgersian or Pitts?
