Replaced by Cris Carter, according to PFT (http://www.profootballtalk.com/category/rumor-mill/):

Itís official. Emmitt Smith will not be part of ESPNís two-hour pregame show, NFL Countdown, in 2008.


ESPN is expected to make the formal announcement soon.


Emmitt will be replaced by Cris Carter, whose enhanced visibility could help his chances of getting into the Hall of Fame on the second try. (Then again, if Carter does a bad job or comes off as a blowhard, it could hurt him.)


Emmitt will remain on Monday Night Countdown, and heíll have a role on the Sunday morning pre-Countdown version of SportsCenter.


The Sunday NFL Countdown lineup will consist of Chris Berman, Mike Ditka, Carter, Tom Jackson, Keyshawn Johnson, and Chris Mortensen.

Damn, dude. I was just coming over here to post it.

Not because I harbor any ill will towards Emmitt. Rather, I'm sad because it probably means that next season will be without any Emmitt-isms.

It's a dark day, indeed.

Emmitt - you'll always be "sharp as a whistle" in my book.


*sigh*

Emmitt didn't get "completely blowed out". He will still be featured on Monday Night Countdown.

Emmitt don't quit. Don't ever quit.

Mixed feelings. He is possibly the worst sports announcer in history, yet WILDLY entertaining.

Emmit is just being made an ''escape goat''. It seems that he wasn't really an "affordable porn opponent" for Chris Carter. He might even lose that ''arrow of invincibility''. I guess at the end of the day, he is "not that deep in depth".

Finally, Emmitt wont talk about Brett Favre as much "Brett Favre has shown time in, and week in and week out that....he can get it done."

Oh I disagree. I have never laughed at another announcer as hard or as frequently as I have laughed at Emmitt. He's sharp as a whistle, and you cannot change the stripes of a leopard.

lol:

Besides, that show was just Emmitt's rice of passage.
