What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
The Sports Sewer isn’t always going to feature ESPN, but, let’s face it, the World Wide Bottom Feeder leads the league is nonsense. Our first example is Max Kellerman.
For those who don’t know, Max Kellerman replaced Skip Bayless on First Take when he left to do the exact same show on Fox that I call First Fake. Kellerman knows boxing, and apparently little else. At the beginning of the season, he predicted a Peyton Manning-like drop off the proverbial cliff for Tom Brady. As of this writing, Brady is completing 68% of his passes for 2,201 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 1 pick, and that’s after having missed the first four games. Swing and a miss…
Like most bullshit-spewers, Kellerman won’t just admit his mistake, instead he doubles up. Last week, after the Patriots beat the Jets, Kellerman stated that Brady’s performance in the game backed him up. Brady completed 60% of his passes in that game for 286 yards and 2 touchdowns, including the game winner after the 2 minute warning. Not to mention, Brady lost his favorite target in All World tight end Rob Gronkowski? And the Patriot running game was non-existent? And that all game long, Brady had more Jets in his face than O’Hare Airport? And after all that, Brady still did what Brady does…pull the Patriots fat out of the fire at the end.
There’s a drop-off in this conversation, but it isn’t in Tom Brady’s performance…perhaps giving air-time to wastes like Max Kellerman explains the World Wide Bottom Feeder’s plunge in the ratings.
Max, I know you’re replacing Bayless and it’s hard to be the young douche who replaces the old douche, but either you didn’t watch this game at all, you’re a Jets fan, or you’re one of many in the sports “media” who is just a contrarian. In any event, either do your homework and make an argument which you can actually support or have the stones to admit when you’re wrong.

I do believe Kellerman was the original host of Around the Horn as well, which I thought (and still think) was a great concept. But the moderator of that show needs to remain a) knowledgeable and b) neutral, both of which Kellerman was incapable of being.
Yeah, I don’t watch him.
