I think CSP will be excellent in the studio, not so sure about the booth. He doesn't have Madden personality.

I love Brees, but I am not really sold on him as a color commentator. He seems too matter of fact, maybe even a little uptight. Perhaps its nerves. IDK. Like I said, love the guy, he's a legend on the field- but may need more time in the booth and perhaps some tips.

He’s always been this way though. One of the comments said he’s very corporate, which is a good description. He’s never been outspoken. His interviews have always sounded generic
This. I appreciate the guy and what he did for this team but when they announced this I didn’t think it would be a good fit b/c he seems to be a bit hesitant to really speak his mind and he’s not gonna go against the status quo or the general consensus for the most part. Plus dude is a bit repetitive when he speaks. Remember how many times he said, “we we’re this close, if only we could get that one inch or first down.” Lol. He may get better but I see him more as a coach, think he would be amazing in that role.

Drew isn't going to coach. How many top QBs want to take on that kind of workload? Plus it would probably cost him money.

The commentary is too harsh, over the top, and unwarranted. He's gotten better with every broadcast. He'll loosen up more with experience, and is better than most already. If you like X's and O's, you'll like his contributions. If you're looking for wisecracks, jokes, and hot takes - he's not your guy.

Other than Romo, whos offering better actual in-game perspective? Listening to the clowns on MNF tonight, he measures up pretty darn good, IMO.

Didn't Tony Romo get the same treatment from us when he started out in the boothe? I know I did, but now he's pretty decent. Drew will get better, he's smart, he knows what he's doing and knows what he needs to do to get better. I don't see him stepping away from a challenge unless the network yanks him out of the booth.
Nope, Romo was brilliant on his very first game.

He seems to be watching the game and dissecting it, as if he is at home. Like his mind is envisioning him in those plays. He needs to get himself out of that mode and get in commentator mode. He also needs some quirky phrases to go with his dialogue. Like acting as if he is getting drunk with his buddies, talking football, and loosen up a bit. Not too loose. Cant go all Charles Barkley, but just loosen up.

I think we can all agree that Cam Jordan is going to be better at this kind of thing than Brees is.

I’d actually like to see Drew pursue something else, but it’s his life and I’m fine with him doing whatever he wants to do.
Personally I am waiting for the CJGJcast alternative for TNF.

Drew was marked as a player by his focus and intensity. He was wound up pretty tight.
Being a studio analyst or a color guy in the booth requires you to be loose, off the cuff, entertaining.
It‘s not the natural environment for the grinders in the front row. It’s better suited to the cut ups in the back of the class.
Don’t know if that’s in Drew’s tool bag…

I kind of feel like you either have it or you don't when it comes to jobs like that.

Bruh... I'm like what is going on in his head that he can't complete a thought. "You with me?" :smilielol:

No, Sean... No, we are not.
