This should be an interesting addition to the play-by-play analysis if he doesn't toe the company line and calls them like he sees them.

Side note: rcade, you appear to be posting from the future.

I really like his postmortems on the NFL network. I think this is a great idea. We need some color commentary that actually adds something to the game.

I like this. Officials do have a very unique perspective on the game. They don't care who wins. I've seen some of his breakdowns in the past too ... I think he'll do a good job.
