Keyshawn makes early exit from DWTS

On Sunday, ESPN’s Keyshawn Johnson starred in an awkward segment with Cris Carter and Adam Schefter, catching footballs from a JUGS machine.  (Or, in Keyshawn’s case, dropping footballs from a JUGS machine.)  On Monday, Keyshawn made an even more awkward exit from a slightly more popular ABC property.

Johnson was the first contestant eliminated from the 17th season of Dancing with the Stars.

Typically, current and former football players do very well on the show.  From Hines Ward to Emmitt Smith to Warren Sapp to Jason Taylor to Jerry Rice to Chad Johnson to Jacoby Jones, the NFL has been well represented.

Johnson, in contrast, got the damn boot before folks like Valerie Harper, Bill Nye the Science Guy, Ozzy Osbourne’s son, and Snooki.

In the tradition of terms shouted on the set like “Jacked Up!” and “C’mon Man!,” we’re looking forward to the next catch phrase shouted by Cris Carter or others in honor of Johnson’s misadventures on the dance floor.

But it could have been worse for Keyshawn.  He could have lost a drag race to Justin Bieber.

    His departure is simple–people tend not to vote for Jerks

    Can we vote him off of ESPN now?

    At least the CMon Man segment will get better. The guy filling in for him is awful, worse than MeShawn

    Keyshawn was never known for his athleticism, bad choice for DWTS…

    An overrated big mouth, in my opinion!

    Dez is better!

    Keyshawn, Just catch the damn ball!! Because you can’t dance.

    I thought that segment was hilarious. And Cris Carter still has some amazing hands.

    It’s not his fault he lost, just ask him.

    Bill Nye the Science Guy made his mark in history by emphatically disproving the widely held belief that white men can’t dance.

    I don’t watch Dancing with the stars but I’m pretty sure they haven’t bee on the air for 17 seasons.
