Many claimed that it was because of her fame and power she gained as a wife to an NFL player which got her the promotion. She agrees to it but on whole different levels. She claims that her acquaintance with an NFL player only helps her in getting to know more of the game context and analyzing it better. She says,
“In my experience, the more you know about a player, a coach or team, the more likely you are to have more nuanced, interesting information and better context for analysis”
She has a full mind set on becoming the ultimate host to the show. She further says,
“I’m not ashamed to know guys in the league on a personal level, and I’m certainly not going to try to hide who my husband is because I am immensely proud of the man I married. I’m well aware of the criticism that evokes among some fans, but I trust that over time, the way I do this job will put much of that to rest.”
We totally admire her spirit and hope that she gets spiritually paid off for all the hard work she has put to the success of her new show “Sunday NFL Countdown.”
