We don’t want this tidbit to get lost in all of the Green Bay Packers’ not signing free agents activity.
ESPN replaced one undesirable with a former Green Bay Packer, when they ditched Keyshawn Johnson for Charles Woodson on their Sunday NFL Countdown show several weeks back. Now they’ve gone and done it again, replacing former Chicago Bears coach and Donald Trump supporter Mike Ditka with recently-retired quarterback Matt Hasselbeck.
Hasselbeck is most remembered for his time with the Seattle Seahawks, but started his career as a backup to Brett Favre.
If the trend continues, Sunday Countdown will soon be made up of all ex-Packers, which we’re fully supportive of.
It would be nice if ESPN replaced Cris Carter next. Maybe Don Beebe or Jeff Query are available?
As for Ditka, that insane person will still be employed by ESPN, but in a reduced role. That seems to be a nice way of not firing him outright.
Perhaps if he could have farted more on the air, he’d still have that job.
