    CARTER IN, EMMITT OUT ON SUNDAY NFL COUNTDOWN
    Posted by Mike Florio on July 29, 2008, 10:34 a.m. EDT
    Itís official. Emmitt Smith will not be part of ESPNís two-hour pregame show, NFL Countdown, in 2008.

    ESPN is expected to make the formal announcement soon.

    Emmitt will be replaced by Cris Carter, whose enhanced visibility could help his chances of getting into the Hall of Fame on the second try. (Then again, if Carter does a bad job or comes off as a blowhard, it could hurt him.)

    Emmitt will remain on Monday Night Countdown, and heíll have a role on the Sunday morning pre-Countdown version of SportsCenter.

    The Sunday NFL Countdown lineup will consist of Chris Berman, Mike Ditka, Carter, Tom Jackson, Keyshawn Johnson, and Chris Mortensen.

    Monday nights from Bristol also will feature Berman, Ditka, Carter, Jackson, Johnson, and Mortensen. Stationed at the game sites will be Stuart Scott, Smith, and Steve Young.

    Also, it appears that Suzy Kolber and Michele Tafoya, who reportedly have been nudged out of the MNF broadcast (or, at a minimum, given minimal roles) will be reporting extensively for ESPN during pre-game and post-game coverage. This could mean reduced presence and/or involvement at the game locations of folks like Rachel Nichols, Sal Paolantonio, and Ed Werder.

    UPDATE: Newcomer Trent Dilfer is expected to be a contributor to Monday Night Countdown, and to become a fixture on shows like NFL Live.

    Geeze, how many people do they need to cover Monday night games? This seems rather excessive.

    Good Riddance - Smith was a great player (and dancer), but he's a terrible analyst.

    I loved it when he said things like Chad Johnson was being made "an escape goat"

    Stupidity like that provides unintentional entertainment.

    ESPNs NFL analysts are still, for the most part, terrible. NFL Network is 50x better.
