CBS' Brown to host record 10th Super Bowl pregame show
(AP Photo/Bill Wippert, File)CBS' James Brown knows what it is like to host Super Bowl pregame shows when the day transcended beyond the teams competing for a championship. Brown hosted Fox's pregame for the 2002 Super Bowl, which occurred nearly five months after 9/11. With the coronavirus pandemic still at the forefront, Brown realizes Sunday's “Super Bowl Today” show could offer the same opportunities, but in a different manner. This is a different kind of backdrop where many people have just been fatigued, given all of the challenges that we’ve had to endure during this time.”AdThis will be a record 10th Super Bowl pregame hosted by Brown and his sixth for CBS. He became the pregame host for Fox in 1994 when they outbid CBS for the rights to the NFC package.
Ramsey: 'Disrespectful things' led to him requesting trade
Getty ImagesJACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jalen Ramsey said disrespectful comments after the Jaguars' loss to the Texans on Sunday led to him asking his agent for a trade. Ramsey made the admission on an episode of the "17 Weeks" podcast with Nate Burleson, and that was released just hours before Thursday night's game with the Titans. "Some disrespectful things were said on their (Jacksonville) end that made me definitely walk out and call my agent as soon as I walked out," Ramsey said. Ramsey and Jaguars coach Doug Marrone had a very visible spat on the sideline during the first half. On the podcast, Ramsey said that he thought too much was made of that situation.
