Tom Brady taking what should have been Greg Olsen's spot


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I’ve listened to Olson Call some games and honestly he is ok, and not some rising star in the broadcasting world like some believe. He needs more reps. There is def some potential with him and I don’t see why he can’t improve. Probably should have started small on radio and got comfortable first. He has a very high football IQ and that is something that will work in his favor. 
 

one guy I think has some potential is RG3 - he is a natural and very comfortable calling a game. He is going to be a better broadcaster than a Pro Qb.

Chris Collinsworth, Brian Billikens. But you are right, most did play.

You do realize Collinsworth played in the NFL for almost a decade and Billick is a SB winning HC who played in college?

Not really sure the point you were trying to make with them

Kids don't know and if Brady sticks, younger kids just getting into football won't really know any better. Brady could end up being a new standard, which is unfortunate.

Collinsworth was Pro Bowl and All Pro receiver. Billick is a Super Bowl winning head coach.

"Unlike Tony Romo, Brady will not be entertaining in the booth. Or insightful. Or excited. Or even alive, really," Drew Magary says of NFL QB legend's 10-year, $375 million deal with Fox Sports. "What he WILL be is meticulous about withholding his candor, which is of course what we all love from someone paid to give us a candid look into the sport. Tom Brady is a strategically dull man, forever drawing inspiration from the lobotomized. He can’t even make kissing his own son on the mouth all THAT compelling. When he takes over the Fox booth alongside play-by-play man Kevin Burkhardt, he’ll almost certainly prove as useless a commentator as Joe Montana turned out to be

I know he used to do radio spots every week, going over games but I've never heard him do anything like commentating. 

I'm sure there are some clauses in that contract and I'm sure he'll never make the full 10 year commitment but at least he's tied up, I guess.
