Prime Time again?: ESPN reports Neon Deion is contemplating a comeback, possibly with the Baltimore Ravens. Will it be Jordanesque or, um, Jordanesque?

Whatever happens, it'll be better than his broadcasting career.

If I have to see Deion, I'd rather see him in a uniform, with a helmet covering his grille:

Who will CBS turn to for their hipness/ blackness quotient, Rerun? I don't think Jim Lampley could stand much more than that without his hair popping off.

My mother always said, "If you don't have anything nice to say about someone, then don't say anything." So, I'll keep my mouth shut.

I hope he comes back and breaks his femur.

If I remember correctly, he wanted a big raise at CBS and they wouldn't give it to him. They're bringing in someone like Shannon Sharpe, aren't they? I figure that Sharpe will be a welcome improvement over Deion.

What an ass. Last year he talked about coming back ONLY if the Raiders would sign him. Now it is only if the Ravens will? Ass.

He just wants to be the Sister Helen to Ray Lewis's Matthew Poncelot. But if he stops doing the televangelism shows with Michael Irvin, well...let's just say I'm damned.

He brought showboating to a whole new level. It was no longer the comical Johnson dance or the fun bunch high five, this new breed was of the "me' mentality. Watch me score a touchdown. Watch me show off my latest dance. Watch me, watch me, watch me. " With Deion back in the mix, the problem will be exacerbated. (Can I say that?)

Remember that if he does come back, he'll be playing with Ray Lewis, possibly the only player that can out-showboat Deion. I can only hope that Lewis will teach him to quit tackling like a girl.

Well, apparently PrimeChump is getting closer to ending his retirement. And as a Steelers fan all I can say is... WOO HOO!!!! Adding a showboating egomaniac can only hurt this team that already had a fine defensive unit. Just like when Deion decided to join the 'Skins :)

Don't forget that San Diego owns the rights to Deion, and will need to be compensated if the Raven's attempt to sign him.
