    I used to enjoy Madden but he had gotten to the point where he either:

    A) restated the obvious

    B) didn't make much sense at all

    or

    C) compared everyone to Brett Favre


    Any coincidence that Madden is retiring at the same time as Favre?

    I'll miss Madden from a few years back and not necessarily his most recent work.

    He's an icon, though - gotta give him that.

    I wonder if the passing of Harry Kalas swayed him at all.

    I knew when Brett retired it was the time. He was waiting to see if #4 came back. Now its official, so he's out the door. So long John. Boom, Whapp!!!

    This guy looks like he's having a lot of fun announcing.

    This was exactly what I thought when I first saw this. It probably went something like this:

    Favre (via text): im retired fo realz this time
    Madden: NOOOOO! :'( xoxox

    Madden (to NBC): Football is dead to me. I quit.

    He was a institution with Pat Sumerall. You knew you were getting the top game and the top broadcast. I think alot of that left with Michaels. I love Michaels but I think Madden started losing it when they joined. Overall he set the standard for the new breed type guys with the "Boom", etc. He is right though..it's time.

    Madden will be missed. Summerall not so much - I hope he follows suit.

    He will be missed, I liked his announcing. I wonder if he will continue the Madden video game series.

    EA is contracted with the NFL until at least 2012.

    actually none of this is true, these are just rehashed jokes from frank caliendo's stand-up career.
