I hate to be critical of an NFL legend and 49ers icon, but he is damn near unwatchable on NFL Live.
It's not how Jerry talks. Sure, he's got some southern drawl which is fine; it's not like he sounds like Emmitt Smith (aka Foghorn Leghorn) or Torry Holt (his color commentary for games 2 years ago was abysmal). Although, I now realize GOAT in no way stands for Greatest Orator of All Time.
The problem is Jerry doesn't add anything. Yes, shows like NFL Live are more or less fluff, but Rice provides no real insight or analysis. It's info you or I could convey.
Basically, he brings less to the table than a paraplegic waitress.
