I knew Skip was an idiot but I read anyway...

How can these teams ever generate enough star power to live up to the telecast's Oscar-worthy commercials?

No Peyton or Brady or Vick or buzz.


this coming from the biggest vick basher of them all

Now, just because the media isn't peeing their pants to get an interview with Shaun Alexander, Hasselback, Big Ben, or the retiring Bettis doesnt make it less exciting. But that shouldn't dictate how important or entertaining a game is.

*edit - I continued to read and he wrote that this game includes two underdogs. But the only person on the planet that thinks the Seahawks are a cinderella or a major underdog was him. Just because he was horribly wrong doesn't make this a horrible matchup.

Why is someone who works for a sports network bashing the Super Bowl, one of the biggest events of the year? Doesn't make any sense. He's going to his 31st consecutive Super Bowl and he doesn't even care. Give me or any other diehard Hawk/Steeler fan your ticket, butthead.

I think Skip Bayless being an idiot is the only thing everyone at the Cafe can actually agree on... !+)

Every week someone at the Cafe writes about how Bayless doesn't know what he's talking about. Every week that poster includes a link to Bayless' new article. Every week other cafe members read the Bayless article through the link, and discuss it. Bayless might not know football very well, but apparently he knows football fans extreemly well.

If I was a writer that is not the way I would want people discussing my articles. If he knew football fans he might attempt to write an intelligent article.

Exactly. Bayless is an agitator, not an analyst. It is because he knows football fans that he does not have to write an intelligent article. There are tons of guys who can disect defensive schemes for peanuts. Bayless plays on fans' feelings of superiority and gets to write national columns and appear on TV (I'm assuming he does pretty well financially). I've got to say, while he may be obnoxious and lacking in football knowledge, as far as I'm concerned the guy is a genius.

That guy had best completely stay away from Seattle and me. I can honestly say that if you read that some guy in Seattle beat the crap out of Skip Bayless it will be me. Consider this my confession...

:-D

Genius, or extremely naive? Either one I still hate the guy and can't watch woody on 1st and ten because of him.

Only semi-intelligent thing he said in the first article is about Joey Porter. I can't wait for him to do some interviews now that they're in Detriot. ;-D

And...well...can't find anything semi-intelligent in the second one... :-?
