LOVING THE D: Skip Bayless Compares Romo To Brady, Starts In On MVP Talk
Man oh man does Skip Bayless love to publically slobber all over the Dallas Cowboys when he gets the chance...
After an epic collapse by the New York Giants Sunday night, and an equally epic game-winning drive by the Dallas Cowboys, the table was set for Skip Bayless to audibly fellate his favorite team in sports on "First Take" this morning. And fellate he did.
Skip started off by suggesting that Tony Romo has put himself in prime position to be the NFL's 2015 Most Valuable Player -- an assertion that would make total sense if we weren't talking about the first game of the season. Technically, though, he's not wrong. However, other players had solid outings this week, so, ya know, it's not an open and shut case. In fact, you could've said the same thing about Johnny Manziel's MVP candidacy after he entered the game throw a touchdown pass against the Jets. Let's pump the breaks here a bit, Skip.
[Rolls eyes, mimes shooting self in head]
"I did pick my Dallas Cowboys to get to the Super Bowl, to win the NFC. That was so huge what Tony Romo pulled off last night. Again, I told you he's going to be the MVP this year because he should have been last year and did he not make an opening night case for MVP? I'd say he did."
Skip also found the courage to say that Tony Romo would've won that football game had 40 more seconds come off the clock, giving him only a minute to go 75 yards to score. Wow. This, coming from the same man who once wrote an entire column about how often he changes his mind on Tony Romo's efficacy as the Cowboys' QB.
Bayless continued to lose his mind over the outcome of one game, saying other outrageously reactionary things, like that losing Dez Bryant for four to six weeks won't hurt the Cowboys because Romo is like Tom Brady, who can and does make everyone around him look like superstars.
"Back to the guy, Dez Bryant calls 'number nine.' I'm going to go Brady-esque again. I'm going to invoke the name of Tom Brady because it's gotten to the point with Tony Romo that it really doesn't matter overall -- over a four-game stretch -- whether you have Dez Bryant or not, because Tony Romo all of a sudden makes a little star out of Lance Dunbar. Eight catches for 70 yards. Are you kidding me?"
Um, are you kidding us?
Watch a grown man throw a parade for Tony Romo (which he'll inevitably walk back by the end of the season because these are unreasonable expectations for anyone), below.
