ESPN says goodbye to Emmit Smith. :tiphat:

http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/02/20/emmitt-exits-espn/

Well, we’ll no longer have Emmitt Smith to kick around.

After a two-season run featuring multiple new on-air additions to the English language, the greatest running back in NFL history ultimately has fared no better than Joe Montana as a broadcaster.

Yes, ESPN has advised us that Emmitt’s relationship with the network has ended.

There will be no formal announcement — and presumably no going away party. Or vodka-fueled roast.

“We thank Emmitt for his contributions to ESPN and work ethic the past two years,” ESPN spokesman Bill Hofheimer told us via e-mail. “We wish him all the best.”

So we bid a bittersweet farewell to a guy who made this job a lot more entertaining. Intentionally or otherwise.

Emmit has something else in common with Joe Montana IMO. Each is overrated at their respective positions.

I really like Emmitt as a player, but he was an insult to the english language as an analyst.

This removes any incentive I had to watch ESPN at all. Watching Emmitt done debacling da language was da bestest part of ESPN.

I agree. He was fun to watch and I hate that his broadcasting career got blowed up.

5. "Eli Manning has been given the rites of patches."
4. "This kind of inconsistency, against a team like New England, will get you completely blowed out."
