Drew Brees wasn’t terrible at NBC but he wasn’t Tony Romo.
Everyone wants the new Romo, but most of these ex-players aren’t good at broadcasting and it shows. The networks are just wasting money.
Legendary NFL quarterback Drew Brees will not return to NBC after just one season as a studio and game analyst, according to sources.
The decision seemed mutual as Brees preferred doing games over the “Football Night in America” studio show, and NBC didn’t have many NFL games to offer him. NBC soured on Brees’ potential after originally believing he could develop into the heir apparent to Cris Collinsworth on “Sunday Night Football” games.
On the air, Brees, 43, had an up and down rookie season that was highlighted by a poor performance in his biggest broadcast of the year, the Bengals-Raiders playoff game.
Brees always got fake hair for the gig.
Balding is a difficult subject for men. It’s right up there with replacing the grill and running out of beer.
Each guy handles it differently. Some let it flow however biology intended. Some cut their losses early and shave their dome completely.
The former New Orleans Saints and San Diego Chargers quarterback had a receding hairline during the final years of his career. Now, he has a new hairline straight out of a Rogaine ad. It was a feast for NFL fans on social media.
The 43-year-old has yet to make any public comment about his new hair. Did he get a hair transplant? Did he get a hair piece, hair plugs or use hair-regrowth products? Did he plant hair seeds on his scalp? No one knows, but the first two options are the most likeliest. You have to respect a guy who doesn’t acknowledge a new do. Because why would he? It’s always been like that.
