So Jaw’s most recent bonehead quote came out today, when he said he wouldn’t draft Johnny Manziel in the first three rounds. Really Jaws? You wouldn’t take a Heisman winning quarterback until after the third round? You can honestly justify taking almost 100 players ahead of him? Really dude?
Get that shit out of here you fat faced idiot. In just two years in college football’s toughest conference the kid put up monster numbers. A majority of the guys he played against are already pros, yet you have to gall to say he’s not even a top 100 player going into the draft. Just shut up. There’s no person on the planet whose opinion I respect less than Ron Jaworski’s and these kinds of quotes just prove it (I’m not including Skip Bayless in this because I don’t consider him a person. He’s a troll, through and through, and only says things that he knows will piss people off). Jaws even admits he hasn’t seen many of Manziel’s games (calling bullshit on that right now. EVERY single thing Manziel did was on was on ESPN 24/7 you liar), so not only is his opinion stupid but it’s coming from willful ignorance. Stupid on purpose, as I like to call it.
This is hardly the first time Jaws has been completely wrong regarding a player. Last year he said Colin Kaepernick could be the best QB of all time. This was after only half a season starting in which he took the 49ers exactly one game further than Alex Smith. Or how about last summer, when he legitimately ranked Joe Flacco as a better QB than Drew Brees. That’s right. To Jaws, Drew Brees, the guy who has set multiple records since joining the Saints, isn’t better than Trent Dilfer 2.0. ESPN continues to pay this man despite being completely wrong all the time. Because to ESPN, there is no bad press.
So to answer the question, Yes, Jaws is paid to be stupid. Because talking about how stupid his most recent quote is playing right into ESPN’s hand. Saying something normal and informed, like Johnny Football is a top 3 QB this year and will definitely be drafted in the top 20, doesn’t get people talking. It doesn’t create any controversy because it’s a commonly accepted opinion. If ESPN can separate itself from the pack, even if it means standing behind a completely retarded opinion, then it can create something out of nothing. Where there was no story, now there is one. The headline is no longer “QBs work out at the combine”. It’s now “Hear what Jaws had to say about this year’s QBs, only on SportsCenter”. Bullshit journalism 101.
