Stephen A Smith Is Impossibly Bad at His Job
Most football fans likely enjoyed this game, with the possible exception of Stephen A Smith, who doesn't appear to have any interest in the sport whatsoever.
Of course, this doesn't stop him from reporting and commenting on it.
Listen to this mind blowing gibberish:
In just this short clip Stephen A. Smith:— Jordan Heck (@JordanHeckFF) December 13, 2018
— Forgot Spencer Ware was out
— Called them San Diego Chargers
— Said he was looking forward to watching Hunter Henry, who hasn't played all year
— Said Henry was going up against Derrick Johnson, who is a free agent
— Broke Tedy Bruschi pic.twitter.com/wOaorAbBKY
You can literally see the moment where Tedy Bruschi realizes that this dude has not one clue how to do this job while simultaneously remembering how much ESPN pays Smith for his insight.
Even Max Kellerman is visibly confused.
That really is an insane amount of incompetence to pack into 30 seconds.
It's encouraging to see that the Mothership is still holding its employees to the usual high standards, demanding exhaustive research to accompany on-air analysis.
Of course, this nonsense didn't go unnoticed, particularly by the Chargers themselves, who engaged in some next-level trolling of Smith.
Also see Stan Humphries.
The former cable adversary of Skip Bayless tried to play it off as best he could:
My Brother, it’s called a MISTAKE because I was think of Virgil Green, but mentioned Hunter because I was multi-tasking. That’s what happens when you’re doing a thousand things. But I don’t blame you if you told me to “Stay Off The Weeeeeeedddddddd.!” That was a brain-lock moment https://t.co/hhFfUmbhiu— Stephen A Smith (@stephenasmith) December 13, 2018
To be fair, that was more of a brain hemorrhage than a simple lock.
Stephen A Smith is and will forever remain a hopeless hack.
In fact, let's mock him openly:
