NBC opts to lose credibility

6 Jan

If you thought NBC’s 18-man NFL studio show was tough to watch up to this point, just wait ’til you get a load of this. Turns out former Lions President and CEO Matt Millen has been added to the panel. Yeah, the same Matt Millen that put together the 0-16 Detroit squad (what’s next? Ryan Leaf analyzing the league’s quarterbacks?). Apparently, providing expert opinions from credible football sources is not a priority for them. But hey, at least Millen knows he stinks:

    Seeing Millen take responsibility is a breath of fresh air. Although, I suppose there is no way of him avoiding it after an 0-16 season.
    By the way, does NBC really need Costas, Olberman AND Dan Patrick on the same panel? Don’t they all have the same job description?

    Maybe he never should have left the broadcast booth in the first place. Nice for him to admit his failings though.
