well in all fairness to the guy, he isn't a complete horses ass like Irvin or Dion, so it might not be half bad.

The one guy with a very bright future in broadcasting in the coming years is Tiki...From what I've seen, he already does some work on the side for the local affiliates, plus he's got a pretty high likability factor.

Word also has it that the networks are all vying for ad space on Tiki's collosal noggin..

I've always thought Peyton Manning would make a very good broadcaster. Ray Lewis has did some work for NFL Network during Pro Bowl week and I thought he did a decent job. Darren Sharper and Brentson Buckner will most definitely move into broadcasting as well.
