Reported yesterday by Bob Raissman of the New York Daily News and confirmed today by Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated, Joe Theismann who was dropped by ESPN after the 2006 season, has completed his TV comeback. He will join NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football which is currently called by Bob Papa and Matt Millen and make it a three man booth.
The usually talkative Theismann will most likely be the dominant figure as he tends to overanalyze, overhypothesize and overthink every play.
His first game will be Veterans Day, November 11 when Baltimore takes on Atlanta. This is not a good move, but I’m not running NFL Network.
