ESPN First Take personality Skip Bayless is known to be factually incorrect a surprisingly large percentage of the time. So I decided to find some of the most ridiculous statements he’s made over the years and prove him totally wrong. Enjoy.————————————————————————————————————

Browns Browns Browns Browns


Screen Shot 2015-09-04 at 6.39.34 PM“Wow, sensational move by Indy trading for Trent Richardson. Browns pretty much give up on this season, wait to use multiple picks in draft.”

Richardson since trade: 316 carries, 977 yards, 3.1 yards per carry, 6 TD, 5 fumbles

-Waived by Colts in March 2015, released by Raiders in August 2015

Final score: Alabama 42, Notre Dame 14

-Manti Te’o: 3 solo tackles, 0 tackles for loss, 0 sacks, 0 INT, 0 forced fumbles

That’s just not smart.


One thought on “7 really dumb things Skip Bayless has said and the stats to prove him wrong

  1. Bayless is like the weather he is paid to be more wrong than right. If he was right 30 percent of the time he would be hitting 300. Chances are Bayless knows his comments often ti.e are off base and looks to get a rise out of everyone like his partner Stephen A. Smith.
