Joe Theismann Will Be An Analyst For NFL Network

It's easy to rag on Joe Theismann as a television analyst. He tends to talk for too long, and he's prone to making some silly declarations. But there's no denying that the man knows football and is passionate about it, so he at least fulfills the basic requirements of what you need in a color commentator.


It looks like that was enough for NFL Network to bring Theismann back to the national spotlight. According to Sports Illustrated media reporter Richard Deitsch, Theismann will join Bob Papa and Matt Millen in a three-man booth for NFL Network's game broadcasts this season. I'm not sure how there will be enough airtime for all three of those guys to get words in, but as a Redskins fan, it's nice to see something good happen to Theismann.
