Some folks just have it coming. ESPN's Skip Bayless is no exception.
Richard Sherman, an All-Pro cornerback for the Seattle Seahawks was on ESPN's First Take this week after Sherman's recent Twitter battle with Darrelle Revis about who the best corner is in the NFL. While Revis has the bigger resume, Sherman pointed out that his first two seasons in the league are better than the overall career of the 3 time All-Pro, 4 time Pro Bowl selected Revis. Like a lot of topics in sports this is something that only time will tell. First Take, a show known for arguing the hottest topics in sports, invited Sherman to appear this past week. Stephan A. Smith may have asked the question, but the response was soley directed at one Skip Bayless.
When asked how good do you think you are by Smith, Sherman held nothing back. Sherman responded with, "My numbers, my film speaks for itself. You can say what you want and Skip can say whatever he wants, but Skip whenever you address me or refer to me, address me as ALL-Pro Stanford graduate."
That was just the beginning. Sherman then tells Bayless that "you have never accomplished anything." And then the fireworks begin. At one point, Sherman says to Skip Bayless, "In my 24 years of life, I'm better at life than you."
Richard Sherman isn't the only professional athelete that has had a run-in with Skip Bayless. Terrell Suggs has either called in to First Take, or shown up on set numerous times and really took Skip to the woodshed for Bayless's relentless criticism of now Superbowl winner and MVP quarterback Joe Flacco. He even went so far as to call Bayless a name that was heard on the original broadcast, but edited out for the replay.
I have a feeling that Sherman and Suggs aren't the only pros who want to share thier feelings with Skip Bayless. I know at times while I'm watching First Take, I would like to reach out to Skip as well. Richard Sherman's appearance this past week was the equivelant of a pick six, and not even divine intervention from Tim Tebow could have saved Skip Bayless.
Here is a link to the condensed version of the interview with Richard Sherman:
