Irvin voted off the island

NFL Fanhouse at AOL Sports reports that ESPN has parted ways with commentator Michael Irvin. The story points out that Irvin hadn't committed any infractions but alludes to the possibility that Bill Parcells could fill the void.

The playmaker was controversial as a football commentator. A high, or low, point occured in the 2005 season when Irvin baited Terrell Owens into a(nother) statement disparaging his QB, Donovan McNabb. In response to an Irvin question, Owens agreed that the Eagles would be better off with Brett Favre, who was having a terrible year, than with McNabb, who was injured. Redskins fans, of course, dislike Irvin both for his role with the Cowboys of the early 'Nineties, and because he stole 2007 Hall of Fame votes from Art Monk.
