Pollack is exceedingly better than Desmond Howard, IMO. Very smooth delivery, rarely has to reference notes, hardly ever says "umm" or has to correct himself (I'm looking at you Desmond). Pollack just seems like he is having a conversation and Desmond seems to be "working. " JMO, but Pollack is the next best personality after Herbstreit, Corso and Fowler.

His GA homerism is strong though......if he could bring that in some would make him great. He definitely outclimbed Jesse Palmer in their battle. No doubt David has a higher IQ....Desmond doesn't add lots of depth to the conversation...about what Corso adds now, minus the humor.
Agreed. Funny thing is though, Desmond is pretty good in his role on the BIG SHOW. He stumbles some still, but I don't think he can carry a show the way Pollack can.
I like Desmond and what he brings to the show. With that said pollack is my favorite, over herbie, cause he is the only one that look at things from a defensive perspective.
Yeah they don't need Desmond to carry the "Big Show", just add something extra. When Desmond is by himself he doesn't perform the same. Herbie really carries the show. Would guess another year or so before David takes over for Corso. However, I hope they keep Corso on just to put on the mascot head. That is classic and would be sorely missed!
Pollack has amazed me since last year. Whoever said he "out climbed" Jesse is 100% correct. I like Desmond now too. He used to drive me crazy, but I think he has really improved. I think ESPN realizes, though, that Pollack is their next CFB stud.
Gonna be awesome when McElroy joins the staff and you have he and Pollack breaking down teams on the Experts.

Pollack is legit.
What happened to his NFL career?
Drafted in the first round by the bengals and broke his neck. Really sad because he was great.
