Emmitt Smith out!
heard a rumor that ESPN let him go today.
and here it is.
Emmitt Smith is out as an ESPN NFL analyst after two seasons with the network, ProFootballTalk.com reports.

The network does not plan a formal announcement about the move.

Smith, the NFL's all-time leading rusher, received overwhelmingly negative reviews for his on-air work.

"We thank Emmitt for his contributions to ESPN and work ethic the past two years," ESPN spokesman Bill Hofheimer told PFT via e-mail. "We wish him all the best."

I always felt that Emmitt's analysis of the days sporting events through interperative dance was a bit over the top....

yeah this was said a while back. I love #22, but he wasn't a great analyst.

Poor guy's a victim of ghetto speak. I tell my kids all the time, gotta learn how to switch that off sometimes.

poor emmitt he was always butting heads with steve young and was easily one of the worst analyst ever

I don't get it. ESPN can let SAS keep talking like he aint got no sense, but fire Emmitt. That just doesn't make any sense. :smirk
