Heard on the news this morning that Joe Theisman is being "let go" to pursue "other ventures." Sounds like ESPN wants to go in a "different direction."

Politico speak aside ... Joe Theisman's canned! Woo hoo!

I never really had a problem with Theisman. I liked the old Sunday Night crew, I loved listening to those guys over anyone. If anyone should have been let go it should've been Tony K...I like they guy, but I don't think he should be announcing. Stick to PTI.

Here's the basic breakdown on Theisman... and where most people usually fall (obviously, not everyone)...

Those who like Theisman like his candor and his unabashedness in calling out a player who doesn't put forth effort or is doing something detrimental to the team or sport.

Those who don't can't stand his arrogance and his inability to form a coherent thought when the pressure is on.

Most people fall into the second category because arrogance is hard to get around.

Me, I'm happy the arrogant SOB is going... though Jaws has got to learn to not take uppers before his broacasts. lol

I think Kornheiser got better as the season went last year. He was trying to figure out his place within the trio, and once he did, I think he brings a "regular guys" approach in addition to being color analyst. Give him another year, imo.

According to this, Ron Jaworski is going to replace Theismann, which could be even worse.

Theismann is becoming a permanent analyst. He'll likely be taking Michael Irvin's spot.
