I love Jerry Rice but he sucks as an analyst.
All the former players suck as analysts. The only exception are former players who became coaches.
I like Steve Young as an analyst.
Young isn't that bad. I'll admit that was just a blanket statement. It's just that so many of them are just terrible on so many levels (i.e. Shannon Sharpe is terrible for different reasons that Mark Schlereth is terrible). I could go into a whole rant about the problems with NFL Live and the pre-game shows.
Oh and the reason Joe was on was so that they could plug Madden.

Former players who are good [not great] analysts are Mark Schlaryth ]sp], dillfer, Howie Long, Bradshaw, Jawarski. I don't think any former player analyst on TV is great at what they do.
Terrible ones are Sapp, Cris Carter, Jamie Pukes, Keshawn,
Randy Cross is a little better than average as is Moose Johnson.
Analysts and Announcers are not always one and the same. I would say that Jaws is a fantastic analyst, but isn't all that great in the booth. Mayock Is the ultimate blend of analyst and announcer. Cross is good in the booth, but not an amazing analyst.
