    Brandon Marshall Doesn’t Want Colin Kaepernick on the Jets

    Branson Marshall had a very productive first season with the New York Jets in 2015, recoding 109 receptions for 1,502 yards and a career-high 14 touchdowns.  He accomplished all of that with Ryan Fitzpatrick as his quarterback, so it’s no surprise to hear that the Pro Bowl wide receiver doesn’t want the Jets to ditch Fitz […]

    Skip Bayless is a professional troll. He isn’t on TV because of his rational, analytical mind. ESPN pays him big bucks to say things that will make sports fans want to pull their hair out. On Monday, Skip really earned his paycheck. You see, while talking about the Broncos’ annihilation of the Packers on Sunday […]

    When you go on First Take and Skip Bayless has to stop the show and point out that you’re just being hyperbolic, you know you said something pretty damn bold.

    Skip Bayless would probably refer to himself as a “sports analyst.”  However, most others would probably refer to the host of ESPN’s First Take as a “Douchebag.”  Terrell Suggs did just that during his appearance on the show on Monday. Following Billy Cundiff’s missed field-goal with only 15 seconds remaining in their AFC Championship Game […]
