    CBS - The NFL Today - Fires Sharpe & Marino

    CBS really did a P.C. move... Added Tony Gonzalez

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Longtime analysts Dan Marino and Shannon Sharpe will not return to CBS' ''The NFL Today'' pregame show... CBS says recently retired star tight end Tony Gonzalez will join the network as an analyst for ''The NFL Today'' as well as other programming.

    In the early days the contentious back-and-forth between Marino & Esiason was Good TV

    Marino and Sharpe acted like high school jocks. Glad they are gone. But ESPN has the worst NFL "analysts" by far: Keyshawn, Deion and Micheal Irvin.

    The CBS NFL pregame has been the gold standard forever, but it did seem to be getting a little stale last year.

    They should bring back Dieon Sanders. Not sure why they picked Gonzales since he was never a big talker. So they replaced a tight end with a bunch of big game experience with one that has only been out of the 1st round once, lol. Not sure how Gonzales can relate when playoff or Superbowl game talks begin.

    I heard Shannon Sharpe is taking some time off to play "Bubba" in the Green Mile 2.

    Irvin and Deon aren't even on espn (nfl network).
    And Keyshawn is one of the few decent brothas doing football.

    "Gold Standard" ??? You've got to be kidding. It is by FAR the worst of the pregame shows. Fox is not great but much better than CBS. CBS is boring, mundane, and has a lot of "forced laughter" between these morons. They are trying anything to spice it up. Just getting rid of Sharpe will be an improvement!

    Marino was my favourite, and the only intelligent guy on the show. This was a terrible move unless he gets a job in the Miami Dolphins head office as a result.

    If you are watching just for the "yucks", then yes FOX is your show.
