Very quietly, even for him, Bart Scott recently retired after 11 NFL seasons and joined CBS Sports for the new pregame show airing on cable’s CBS Sports Network.
As a Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets linebacker, Scott was a very good player (one Pro Bowl, three AFC title games).
But for those who were around the teams he played on, he was even a better talker. And CBS executives likely were aware of it.
Still, some might say, “Bart Scott?”
And to those people, just look at the tape above. One of the most memorable live post-game clips that you’ll ever see.
The only reasonable response to that clip?
“Welcome to CBS Sports. When can you start?”
