Past and present NFL players kicked off the start of the pro football season by invading late-night shows on Thursday.
On “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” players like Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden read their own superlatives. Rodgers was voted “Most likely to offer you help at the hardware store even though he doesn’t work there,” while Haden was voted simply, “Black Dilbert.”
Stephen Colbert, who premiered CBS’ new “Late Show” this week, introduced a few new members of his production crew, who just so happened to be football legends.
Former Redskins quarterback and current commentator Joe Theisman found himself working as Colbert’s cameraman, while Franco Harris, the Steelers player responsible for 1972’s “Immaculate Reception,” became the latest member of the “Late Show” band.
And one lucky audience member got forced to laugh at the humor stylings of former Browns fullback and actor Jim Brown.
