FS1’s loudmouth talker Skip Bayless is making headlines again, as he and Undisputed host Jenny Taft got into it about Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy.

Bayless went after McCarthy about his weight, saying that the coach’s weight does him no favors and that it undermines his ability to motivate players.

“This is just personal preference on my part,” Bayless said on the show.

“I’m not taking a shot at him about this, but he’s a little heavy. And I wouldn’t want my head coach in the National Football League to not look the part at all because you got to stay in some semblance of condition to show you know who you are and have some confidence in yourself, right? He was just unimpressive across the board. I’m giving him no checkmarks.”

The conversation between Bayless and Taft got heated because Taft refused to back off. She felt that Bayless went for the a low-blow in attacking McCarthy’s weight.

“I don’t know if I think that’s a fair shot for Mike McCarthy and I’m going to leave it at that,” Taft said.

Fellow co-host Shannon Sharpe simply looked on in amusement. We’re with you, Shannon.

    • Exactly. Now if we were talking about his risk for having a serious Covid case, sure, that makes sense, but motivating athletes? Seriously? This little turd has never participated in any sports. I had a fat swim coach in high school and he was a master at coaching and motivating and got the most out of almost all of his swimmers.
