Bayless is outrageous in his opinions, but at least he doesn't make up statistics off the top of his head like Cowherd does.

@simondelmonte To me that's got to be the answer.  I'm curious what the ratings were last year and what they usually are when the Hawks aren't in it.

So we're supposed to consider that there weren't parties, bars and other viewing masses in Boston?  17th is flat out embarrassing for the Seattle area.

Ironic how many Seattle players have been suspended for using actual PEDs, oh I'm sorry, "adderall", yet people rooted for them to beat the "cheating" Pats.

I get it. Cutler is not that good.  That said, it boggles my mind how 'expert' after 'expert' continues to blast this guy and Trestman with absolutely ZERO mention of their god-awful O line.  I don't care who is back to pass in that offense, you are not going to win games with an O line that gives you no time to throw and can't open running lanes.  Period.  This is not just on Cutler and Trestman.

Thank you for this article.  I really believe this team could be close to the incredible turnaround the 49ers showed in 2012...they just need a really good coach.  And you didn't even mention the inexcusable pass:run ratio which is as mind boggling as any of the things noted above.  Marrone and Hackett need to go.

The baseball HOF voting process, to me anyway, reeks of nerdy baseball writers loving to flex the absurd power they've been granted to determine if an athlete gets into the Hall.  Why they determine it is just baffling.

The only sad thing about Simmons' comments is that he's the only one saying them.  Goodell lied, we all know he lied, but major media is pretending otherwise.  The guy has already had different versions and contradictory statements.  I wish more media had the balls Simmons does.

I've watched too much of KC...I just can't see how this is anything more than Andy Reid being Andy Reid...you know, the same guy who is prone to running 15 times a game when you have Charles and Davis (and then doesn't realize how little he ran the ball).  Kelce is so much better than Fasano, it just doesn't make any sense.  It's a small sample size, and doesn't mean much, but most of my family lives in the KC area and the fans there seem to want two things: hand off to Charles and throw to Kelce.  Reid can be a maddening coach when it comes to fantasy, and in real life football.

It's also worth noting Winn looked good against a top 3 Buffalo run D while it looked like the Jets had completely given up on that game.  Would anyone pick Winn up while dropping Hyde or Rainey?

Thank you for this article.  Couldn't quite settle on a strategy but was leaning toward a WR first drafting style.  After reading this I did quite a few mocks and just love what I'm getting in the end result.  Great quality.

@AsylumGuido Jimmy is a spectator? Um, no.  If Jimmy wanted the TE deal, he could take it.  Just because he is listening to his agent and the union doesn't make him some bystander waiting for this to play out.  He wants more money and is happy to go along with this.  Meanwhile, he has no interest in putting himself into a WR category for his stats, pro bowl or all pro voting.  Just because the TE position is changing, doesn't mean he's not a TE.

No one wants to hear Bill Simmons' about anything on this show.  He is a writer, not an on air personality.  He's awful and it's almost painful to watch his takes and the looks on Collins & Jalen's faces putting up with him.

@Gossamer Just curious, but do you really not see the difference between Redskins and Braves? Yikes.  I think you ought to see what people think of naming a team "blackskins" or "yellowskins" and see how that goes.  Or walk into your nearest reservation and start referring to them as your redskin brothers.  I suggest some good running shoes.

Why is it trolling that he calls these guys out?  I love it.  So many of these 'experts' make ridiculous statements and they don't get called out because no one else with as much influence has the guts to do it.  Media members should be held to account for their total whiffs.

Actually we do want to hear these broadcasters affirm it.  It shows the fan is not crazy when he sees a ref blowing the game or consistently making the same mistake.  I am also glad to see this report because I've noticed that a lot of these announcers defend the officiating even when the call is blatantly bad, seems they are influenced to defend the league officiating so they don't get harassed.
