Report: Tedy Bruschi Gets Promotion At ESPN

Tedy Bruschi keeps rising, and he got promoted.

The former Patriots linebacker turned ESPN NFL analyst will take a the seat Charles Woodson left on the network’s pregame show, Sunday NFL Countdown.

ESPN parted ways with Woodson and his three-year run on the show is officially over. Bruschi will give us analysis on Sundays leading up to kickoff. The Post reported that there may probably be “additional changes to the main team” prior to the start of the upcoming season.

Sam Ponder hosted the show alongside Randy Moss, Rex Ryan and Matt Hasselbeck.

After his retirement in 2009, Bruschi became part of the ESPN family. today, he is one of the most recognizable names on the NFL programing. Bruschi has taken part in many shows on television and radio. The former Patriot still has a nice relationship with the Patriots organization. This helped him become one of the best analysts, especially when it comes to Super Bowl championships.

He isn’t the only former Patriot to appear on TV. Randy Moss and Damien Woody work at ESPN. Rodney Harrison is on NBC’s Football Night in America. Willie McGinest is part of the NFL Network.

Too many Patriots, right?

“I think, number one, when you’re part of a winning team, people want a piece of that. That’s first and foremost,” Woody told Holley, via NBC Sports Boston.”The Patriots have won a lot, man. More so than any other team over the past decade-plus. People want a piece of that. They want you to take them behind the curtain: Why was that organization so successful?”

Woody also said that Bill Belichick deserves a lot of respect for educating successful players.

“All the guys that you mentioned, because we played under Bill, we’ve got a unique perspective of the game of football,” Woody said. “Bill taught us so much about the game of football. Not a lot of people are privy to that. I think that’s what separates Bill from all the other coaches, is how he teaches you the game of football. And so now you have all these on TV who can give you the nuances of those nuggets that fans just really crave. Because it’s not about the stats. It’s about the little things that you can tell fans that they can’t get on a stat sheet or a highlight.”
