Mike Wilbon is apparently growing jealous of ESPN brethren Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith because the level of hot take he just delivered on Pardon The Interruption was more scorching than a July afternoon on South Beach.
“On Saturday during practice, Tannehill, after a couple of practice squad players forced turnovers, Tannehill made negative comments toward them, including saying: “Enjoy your practice squad paycheck, enjoy your practice squad trophy.”
Sources say this has been going on for the past few weeks as the practice squad players have been intercepting Tannehill and frustrating the former Texas A&M wide receiver turned quarterback
Philbin told the practice squad players to take it easy on Tannehill to not affect the young quarterback’s confidence.”
The report has been questioned by some prominent NFL Insiders.
“What does it say about Tannehill?” Kornheiser asked his co-host.
“That he ain’t that good,” Wilbon responded in an aggressive tone. “Despite all the slurping of Tannehill for like a year and a half. He’s a big, raw-boned, strong arm — he’s gonna do this. He ain’t gonna do jack. He can’t even get his team to give effort and you’re the quarterback…
“I’m tired of hearing about Tannehill because if you have to have your nana step in on the playground and stop the kids from picking on you and you’re the quarterback? GET OUT.”
This clown needs a cold shower. First off, Tannehill has never — in three full seasons — received any sort of negativity over being a poor teammate. Second, how is he going to judge a report like this rationally even though it tells only one side of the story?
ESPN loves their hot takes.
