Yesterday, I said I’d discuss something I saw on the ESPN sports show, “First Take.” I will get serious in a moment, but lets get our laughs in.
First, let me say I was 0-3 yesterday. Actually, the Lions should have won. Thanks to their weakness at the critical head coaching position, where the guy throws a challenge play when he couldn’t challenge, Detroit couldn’t even get the horrible call reversed.
You know the Cowboys are more talented than Washington, but they have Tony Romo. The Cowboys are awful at execution, they fail in the clutch, and they are absolutely a great fantasy league team.
The Cowboys are dumbasses. Stat machines but when it comes down to the big play, they are limp. Too funny, S.A. Smith said “the bigger the moment, it’s like a December game, to him (Romo). And he’d fold…” SA Smith said the Cowboys are “an accident waiting to happen.” Bayless actually fully agreed with Smith’s rant against the Cowboys. I wonder if/when Mike Taylor parrots Bayless’s douche like pronouncements against the Cowboys.
The Jets are terrible. I said they’d win to give the NY media something to talk about, but they are mentally soft and went into the tank. Beginning the second quarter, 0-0. At the end of the half: 35-3, New England. The Jets are a mistake machine, and they end up getting destroyed by a New England team I suspect let up a bit in the second half. You know Coach Belichick didn’t want to let off the gas pedal, but heck, when you stomp your arch rival in the face, in a national game in front of their fans, its hard to really whoop that booty.
Yesterday, SA Smith and Bayless discussed Sean Woods, the head coach of Morehead State University and the coach pushing one of the players. Skip Bayless mentioned Coach Woods had done this before and it might mean he needs to get some help…as in counseling.
Smith said he would think about that as offensive to a black man because when a white guy does that, people think he’s “intense.” You know, like Bobby Knight was previously (and in some places still is) viewed. When a black guy does that, he’s a problem. But Smith said that Bayless was probably right, and Woods may need assistance. He also said there were many other coaches out there who may need help, but probably won’t get it.
I thought Smith got it exactly right. There are a lot of coaches who probably have no one to talk to about the various things going on with them.
