ESPN’s Skip Bayless isn’t exactly known for his extensive sports knowledge. Rather, the network keeps him around for his overly opinionated and beyond absurd view points.

Plus, they like to keep us writers employed by allowing him to continually put his foot in his mouth.

Bayless shockingly hasn’t been in the headlines too often lately, though, he did drop a small nugget on his Twitter early this morning (or late last night, depending on your whereabouts) suggesting that the Seattle Seahawks will be a bigger threat to the New England Patriots in the AFC than the Denver Broncos will be.

That’s all fine and dandy, of course, except that the Seahawks play in the NFC.

Oops.

Must admit, Seahawks looking like more of a threat to New England in the AFC than Denver is right now.

Bayless is pretty stupid, but, he can’t be that stupid, can he?

I’m at the point where I think he’s just trolling us.

    He must be talking about a Patriots vs Seahawks Superbowl where the Pats win.

      He’s also clearly taking a shot at Denver. He’s always called Peyton the “Greatest regular season QB of all time.” He’s always taken shots at Peyton and his teams. I should know, I’m a Colts fan. But to suggest that Skip does not know that the Seahawks play in the NFC is ABSURD. Every week they debate whether SEA or SF will win the NFC WEST.

    This is an absurd attempt at an article. Skip Bayless has said some wrong things before (which sports writer has not?) but he does know quite a bit about football and sports in general. The Twitter post (keep in mind that Twitter, like Facebook is purposely designed for posting truncated, small thoughts. Not profound, enlightening information) was probably not not confusing the Conference in which the Hawks play but rather Bayless was saying that New England will make it past Denver easier than they will (in the Super Bowl) against the Hawks.

    Think before hitting ‘Send’ as coach herm Edwards always says.
