Skip Bayless and his ESPN debate program with Stephen A. Smith, First Take, have certainly come under a lot of criticism from the media and fans alike for, well, being of poor quality. So when Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman — who is quite the outspoken one, himself — came on the program in the wake of some critical comments from Bayless, you had to figure the appearance would be entertaining.
For a little background, Sherman recently got into a Twitter beef with the Jets’ Darrelle Revis over which one of them is better at the position. Pretty much everyone had their say in the matter, including Bayless, who said that Sherman wasn’t the same class as his East Coast counterpart.
That invoked a great reaction from Sherman on First Take, who began taking shots at Bayless right from the outset.
“You can say whatever you want,” said Sherman. “Skip can say whatever he wants. But Skip, whenever you refer to me, whenever you speak to me, whenever you address me, address me as ‘All-Pro Stanford graduate’ because those are some accomplishments you’ll never — you can aspire to, you’ll never accomplish.
“You have never accomplished anything.”
The highlight of the interview was likely when Sherman told Bayless “In my 24 years of life, I’m better at life than you.”
Sherman basically refused to Bayless’ query directly comparing him and Revis. However, the actual content of the interview was far more entertaining than a straight answer ever would.

Just a reminder that while it was snowing Thursday in Boston, this was the scene in Mesa, Ariz.
