Brees out at NBC

I think it's probably more that he just wasn't very good at the job.

Brady might not be either.

I always laugh at how they always think these great players will automatically make great broadcasters.

I think they have to try because there is the appeal factor that pulls ratings.  Aikman is coming to mind as being decent behind the microphone.  When you get down to it I dont see anything particularly special about him other than he just has a matter of fact oh shucks type approach that people seem to accept.  I dont see charisma but it comes across as genuine.  Brees never connected.

Brees' football knowledge is top notch. I don't think anyone doubts that.

But to be a TV guy you need charisma too.

He was kinda lacking on that front.

NGL, I was surprised by that aspect because when you saw him command the huddle and pregame speeches in NO, he had tons of charisma and a surprising amount of bravado.  I know that doesn't translate necessarily, but he was so flat on TV, it was a huge contrast.  It's definitely a different world, which is why they shouldn't be handing these jobs out without a proven amount of time and experience in doing it.  

Greg had been doing the spots for NFLN and Fox before he was even retired and even the longtime TV guys were going on about how good he is, and yet, Mr. Toupee here and Brady are raking in huge deals and displacing guys despite having no experience with it.  Imagine how Rodney Harrison (F him, by the way) feels.  He got ousted out of the studio for THAT, and now they fire him after one year.😂
