    I will miss Jared on the pregame shows, I liked his analysis and breakdown. This show was done well, I’m glad y’all did this. Heartbroken for Jared and family.

    Heartbroken for his wife and children. He left way too early in life. Thank you Matt,Drew and Mary Jo for a heartwarming tribute.

    Did anyone else think this seemed awkward? Reading the whole thing off a teleprompter with an odd kind of half-smile instead of just speaking from the heart seemed like a strange choice. RIP big man

      Some people half smile to avoid crying. I’m ok with it. He meant something to everyone. That would be incredibly hard to do impromptu without losing it. Especially if you knew him personally.

    Matt, Drew, MJP – well done. I don’t know how you did it without breaking down. A nice tribute and much appreciated.
