Bob Costas, who said football “destroys people’s brains” in November, won’t be part of NBC’s Super Bowl coverage

So The Big Lead says “there’s reason for skepticism” that Costas’ comments about football and its impact on players’ brains may have something to do with his omission from today’s NBC’s official Super Bowl broadcasting team announcement.
