    dude could probably get some film roles tbh…
    not saying he should play Jason Voorheez or something, but the dude is a pretty big dude…
    Fast 6 or some Road Warrior type thing…

    Heath Evans gets a lot of attention for a moderately successful FB.

    I guess it goes to show that if you can be somewhat articulate and likable, it’s not a bad thing for your career.

    In comparison to a moron like Sapp, this guy will look like George Will.

    I lost all respect for him with his nonsensical talk during the lockout.

    NFL Network is going down hill fast.

    Yet another former player who has no ability to speak, communicate and analyze intelligently and objectively.

    Poor Rich Eisen.

    This might be the first phony that NFL Network ever added.

    Too bad Evans played for the Pats after they forgot how to win Superbowls.

    Yep, he pissed off a lot of people.

    Don’t see many Saints fan who were sad to see him go. Which is telling, because he really was a good player.

    Rich Eisen is really the only reason to watch the network. I could care less what Jamie Dukes, Sapp, or Irvin has to say.

    Eisen is good as a glib facilitator and interviewer but I ❤ Charles Davis, and Mayock even more. They impart a lot of actual football knowledge. I like Baldy too.

    Too bad Evans played for the Pats after all their tapes were confiscated.

  13. slickrick971 says: Aug 24, 2011 12:54 PM

    Uh he played for the Dolphins before he went to the Pats

  14. silkyjohnson937 says: Aug 24, 2011 1:19 PM

    We get it he played for the dolphins before the pats read the comments before you post one im sure if you ask him he probably wouldnt even mention playing for the dolphins, and how are you going to act like this is breaking news when I seen him on nfl network yesterday interviewing jonathon vilma

    Good glad he did not go to ESPN this guy sucks

  16. docredskin says: Aug 24, 2011 1:42 PM

    He can speak. That is a rarity among commentators. Jerry Rice, Warren Sapp, Michael Irvin, Cris Carter, Emmit Smith, etc. You’d thinking talking on television would require at least a basic grasp of the language.

    @ terripet: espn sucks, see chris carter, keyshawn johnson

    He didn’t have to retire, he still had a good year or two in him.
    He didn’t help his cause saying that the only two teams he’d want to play for were the Patriots and the Saints.
    Sean Payton didn’t like his loudmouth tendencies and they wanted to go in a younger direction and Bill, well he’s Bill.
