Phil Mushnick of The New York Post reports that former New York Jets and Cleveland Browns coach Eric Mangini is joining ESPN as an NFL analyst. Mangini, known for his bubbly personality and Hall of Fame resume, will be right at home alongside Mike Ditka and Ron Jawor…wait, what? The guy who skulked along the sidelines and never smiled? Who reportedly ratted out his former boss (Bill Belichick) as the source for SpyGate? Who was fired by the Browns and the Jets and once fined a player $1700 for drinking a $3 bottle of water out of the hotel minibar ? A guy who never played a down in the NFL? That guy is going to be entertaining us with insight?
Can’t wait for the first colleague to kiss his butt and call him “Man-genius.” My money’s on Chris Berman.
