    Even better for people who enjoy seeing disfunction the the NFC E- it's been pointed out how hard it will be for Dallas to replace him given that McCarthy is on a one year contract- so whatever coordinators they get to backfill- they can't give them a decent contract. And for similar reasons, players.

    So in 12 months, it's quite likely that it will be an NFC N vs W for the championship, again.

    Good article,

    It’s funny how things can be framed. I was reading a pro-Hafley article that made his three bowl appearances in four years out to be a positive. It didn’t really go into his season records. I didn’t realize BC has been nearly perpetually 7-6 for a decade now. They are the Alabama of mediocrity.

    I do like the OSU numbers. Hopefully it’s as simple as he just likes coaching football and not running a program.

    He’ll be terrible. Anytime I hear him speak, I think of Brendan Fraser:

    As for Brady, this is also more than he was paid to play the game. His highest payout was $27M when he will average $37M.

    Now the college players have the obvious degree to get when pretending to be a student- the payout is much better on TV than on the field. I would expect the same for former coaches, and the gig is more stable than being a HC.
    And less stressful. And less dangerous.

    I'm forced to root for Taylor Swift and the Chiefs simply because it upsets the MAGA idiots.

    Let's go!

    Fox is replacing Greg Olsen with Tom Brady as the top color guy for football coverage next year. Olsen’s salary will drop from 10m to 3m as a result.

    Brady is signing a ten year deal worth 375m. 37.5 million a year to call football games. They have the Super Bowl next year, so 22 games with playoffs, and then I think there’s usually at least one national preseason game so we’ll make it 23 games. 3.5 hours per game means he’s making 465k/hr for a job he’s never done before.
    Well, that assumes his only time spent is on-air time--minimal effort. Knowing Brady's reputation for overpreparing for any job, he will probably put in a lot more time than that. That doesn't change your point, of course: He's getting an obscene amount of money.

    Looking back through broadcast history, I think it's a solid theory in that your best analysts tend to be "mid-card" type players. Rarely does a superstar make a good analyst. And this is across all sports, not just the NFL.
