NFL Fans Mock Jason Garrett During His NBC Football Debut

Former Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett made his NBC football debut during the preseason’s Hall of Fame game and NFL fans weren’t feeling him.

Garrett was tapped to replace Drew Brees who left NBC over the summer to spend more time with his family after a rough first year in the booth.

NBC Sports has picked former Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett to replace Drew Brees as an analyst on “Football Night in America,” the network announced Tuesday.

Brees departed NBC after one season of working as a Sunday night analyst and color commentator for Notre Dame games. His exit was reported last month and confirmed earlier this week by NBC Sports chairman Pete Bevacqua, who said Brees wanted to spend more time with his family in retirement.

Garrett has been working for NBC as an analyst on USFL games since April, though he apparently has not closed the door on a return to coaching.

During his first appearance, Garrett awkwardly told the same story twice during a rain delay, yelled into the microphone, and annoyed fans.

It’s still the preseason, so Garrett has a lot of time to figure the TV stuff out, or else he’ll be out like Brees after the season.
