I find Bayless to be entertaining, even if I do not agree with anything he says. He is a blowhard, but it is entertaining most of the time. That being said, I damn near spit out my coffee this morning when I heard Suggs say that to him. I had a good laugh over it.

Skip Bayless is a total idiot.  On the other hand, his brother Rick is a culinary genius and a super nice guy (based on one chance encounter).  Go figure.

maybe Mr. Suggs was technically 'over the line', but I enjoyed it.  it was mostly harmless, & probably even true.  kinda nice, actually, to see the stream of criticism reversed from the traditional analyst-to-player direction.  still, I'd never call anyone a douche bag on TV.

Someone needs to edit that sound bite to fit Dantonio.  Be a head coach, don't be a douchebag.  Bayless tells Suggs to watch his language?  Is that really a curse word?  Skip must not watch primetime tv.

Bayless said he's glad it isn't a Ravens vs 49ers, because he wasn't sure he could deal with Harbaugh vs Harbauh for 2 weeks. 


Yes, because that's much worse than 3 months of nothing but Tebow....

+1. I can't believe he would say that when he's been shoving Tebow down our throats the entire year. At least the Harbaugh vs Harbaugh storyling would be one about success that would have actual debate in it. Instead of debating whether somebody is an actual QB

This was great. I can't stand that Bayless intentionally riles things up instead of genuinely having a contrarian or controversial view of something. I've seen him be reasonable on occasion, so when he's the opposite, it really seems forced, which is obnoxious.

If we can get someone to say the same thing to Gary danielson, we will be on our way to fixing another of football's issues:

Be an analyst Gary, not a douchebag!

How out of shape is the guy recording this? He either has porn up on another screen or is doing a great job of muffling the crunch of Doritos while his fat butt is recording this. How out of shape do you have to be when holding a video camera or cell phone up for 3 minutes makes you out of breath

Skip's style makes him entertaining to some and infuriating to others.  It is great when an athlete puts him in his place by reminding him that he is overstepping his bounds as a "journalilst."

Suggs probably just won himself a TV job as soon as he retires.

It's so clearly an act by Skip Bayless. The Tebow mania was an act. I have a hard time believing that he really thinks Tebow is as good as he says he is. The Suggs things was a fun bit of competition between player and "analyst" (put the quotes there because I can't in good consious actually call Skip a real sports analyst).

However, Skip was an idiot today for continuing the attack on Suggs, a guy who just lost a chance at a Super Bowl on a missed field goal. He didn't need to go there, and hey guess reap what you sow. Being called a dbag on the air by an NFL player that I thought was in on the act but now I think genuinely hates you.
