One of the most interesting things about football broadcasting is just how many former Bucs have become top-notch analysts.
Leading the way among the very best in the business are former coaches Tony Dungy (Football Night in America) and Jon Gruden (Monday Night Football).
Coming up fast? John Lynch, the former Bucs safety who made a career of coming up fast. But now, instead of laying into ballcarriers, Lynch lays out information as a game analyst for Fox. He has only been an analyst since 2008, but has ascended to Fox's No. 2 team, along with play-by-play announcer Kevin Burkhardt and sideline reporter Pam Oliver.
"I love it," Lynch told DenverBroncos.com. "You get a chance to stay involved with the game that I love so much. And you really get to see it from a unique perspective."
He works like he did when he played. Each week, Lynch does his homework. He talks to players, meets with coaches and breaks down film.
"It's fascinating to me," Lynch said. "My hope is to be able to tell people what a great game football is."
He has. And does. Very well.
