Hope Tom Brady is a better broadcaster than some of the other goats | Comments

Running to the typewriter…

As it turns out, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is not only the NFL’s GOAT, he’s also the NFL’s bull — a cash cow.

As The New York Post reported earlier this week, Brady will join Fox Sports as its chief NFL analyst after his career ends and will sign a 10-year, $375 million contract – The most lucrative contract in sports broadcasting history.

$375 million?

are you kidding me?

Texas A&M can sign three recruiting classes for $375 million! ! !

Well, maybe there are only two recruiting classes, but you get the idea.

Astonishingly, if Brady retires after this season, he will earn about $315 million during his 23 years as a quarterback in the NFL, which would mean his 10-year contract with Fox (if the New York Post reports that the New York Post does) If the numbers are correct) will pay him $60 million more than he has done in his entire NFL career.

I do have a question for Fox executives, though.

Glad you gave Brady a 10-year deal and paid him all the money, but, um, what if he wasn’t good at being a TV analyst?

What if he turned into a few other goats?

Remember former quarterback GOAT Joe Montana who only played 9 games on NBC before two entities decided to stop the experiment? Montana obviously knows the game, but his shooting is more boring than waiting for your iPhone to recharge.

And then there’s running back GOAT Emmitt Smith, who gives us this twisted monologue: “The Patriots are broken!” Or: “They’ve done a really good job of flying around and enjoying football.”

Personally, I think Brady would be fine as a Fox analyst, but it’s not a guarantee — certainly not a $375 million guarantee.

Just because you’re the goat on the field doesn’t mean you can’t be Baad at the radio booth.

Short stuff: Speaking of Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, here are your stats for the week: When the Buccaneers play in Munich on Nov. 13, Brady will be the first quarterback to start in four different countries, It only takes 258 yards to break the NFL career passing record for throwing yards on foreign soil.

Blazers.” By the way, if we’re going to start including “Sin Industry,” shouldn’t there be a “Cable News Bowl” or a “Put Politician Bowl”? Just want to. …

Don’t get me wrong, Embiid is a great player and he should be a well-deserved MVP, but if he’s at the heart of the Nuggets, I’m not sure they’ll make the playoffs. …

Does this mean we have to make USF in the college football playoffs?

When a man plays golf in Fife,

Funeral procession prevails,

He bowed his head in prayer,

In this gloomy event,

A final tribute to his wife! “
