Skip Bayless loves hot takes, even if they make him look like an uneducated, uninformed sports analyst.
The star of FOX Sports 1’s “Undisputed” debate show has been pumping the Dallas Cowboys’ tires all season, and that didn’t change even after the ‘Boys lost to the Green Bay Packers 34-31 in Sunday’s NFC divisional-round playoff game.
Bayless thought Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott outplayed Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, who played an incredible game and engineered the game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter.
Their stat lines (via ESPN.com) were similar, but Rodgers did play a bit better than Prescott. At the very least, Rodgers wasn’t outplayed.
Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid said it best.
Bayless wasn’t done, though. He called Rodgers’ amazing throw to tight end Jared Cook that set up Mason Crosby’s game-winning field goal an “easy pitch and catch.”
Let’s look at the play.
Oh, yeah, that seemed like a pretty simple play (not really).
Then again, this is the same Skip Bayless who once tweeted this gem.
Never change, Skip.
