Wonder if Mark will still host the Superbowl considering Dan doesn't do Sundays.
His tweet is very much written as if that's it for him on any NFL coverage. More likely would be Nat Coombs - who has covered the NFL Show in the past few weeks (as well as a few times before that) and, more crucially, some of the live coverage of the London games, when Mark Chapman was busy with MOTD2.
Mark Chapman had the background of being a long time NFL watcher, Dan has said on Twitter he's a (Minnesota) Vikings fan. However, with two such good pundits it's about asking the right questions and letting them do the analysis.
I can see the BBC wanting a 'football friendly' face given the placing of the show right after MOTD and there is a chance that, in time, Dan Walker can work up some of the same chemistry Mark Chapman had with Osi and Jason. (Won't be quite the same though, that was something special.)
