Albert Breer Headed To NFL Network, Patriots, Jets On Tap Sunday

After a stint of just under a year at the Boston Globe, Albert Breer is taking his talents to the NFL Network.

    Looks like Einstein has left another job right before his sneering gets him canned. Then again, with CHB still employed at The Globe, he could have been set for life. Hey Al, don't let the door hit your a$$ on the way out.

      I haven't seen this guy until he got to the NFL network… and he SUCKS!
      I already can't stand his arrogant, "I know everything" attitude. Hopefully the NFL network will get rid of this idiot soon.

    Hey Bruce,

    Did you hear Dale Arnold report and give a long diatribe about Pat Burns being dead and then him called TSN and saying he isn't. I have never seen anything like this, awesome!

      Egg on Dale " I mean" Arnold's face .. he is sooo awful.

    Bert Sneer is to journalism what Lou Saban and Larry Brown are to coaching. Let's see, there was the MetroWest Daily News, Dallas Morning News, the Sporting News, the Globe, and now the NFL Network — all since 2007. Pretty impressive amount of wandering.

    What's the over/under on how long he stays at the new gig? I'm no gambler, but I'm taking the under.

      Interesting that you seem to have his resume memorized tho you profess not to appreciate his talents.

      Each of pob's has been lucky to have him; it's always been just a matter of time till his encyclopedic knowledge of the game and its history, his way with words, and his made-for-on-air good looks nabbed him a position with on-air exposure.

      I'm taking bets that someday he'll coach. He's THAT good.

  • Tom

    Nooooooooo!!! What will we do without Breer?!?! Oh man, anyone have any ideas on who I can turn to now to get my 'Rex Ryan is the best coach in the league' and 'The Patriots have lost their way when it comes to being a successful organization' fix??

    Great, now watching NFL Network will suck. I can't wait for him and Marshall Faulk to get on the set and talk some Patriots football.

    Oh well… Let's all go and get a Goddamn snack.

    KaySaraahSaraah whatever will be will be!

    I understand the coming and going of talent at papers because of their downward spriral but how can anyone hire this putz. I know when I've gone on interviews they asked me why I changed jobs twice over 6 years. (3 and 3). This guys on his what 5th place in 3 years….PLEASE! And his shite su.cks! Maybe he'll declare he's always been a closet Jet fan after he pulls his thumb out of his mouth!

    Well, this explains the Jets propoganda from Breer all summer. The NFL network loves guys like Breer. Tom is right, it should be a hatefest when Faulk and Breer get together.
