BACK PAGE: Stephen A. Smith’s screaming hot take: Vikes not NFL’s best team

Stephen A. Smith doesn’t think the Vikings are that impressive. And in particular he’s not so high on their offense. Nor the teams they’ve beaten to get to 5-0.

Then he started talking about a lot of other teams and we’re not really sure what point he’s trying to make…

Warning: there was a lot of shouting in this video.

Fortunately, Max Kellerman and Ryan Clark rationally disagree with him. In a much less shout-y manner. Kellerman also calls Mike Zimmer an elite head coach.

    Strength of schedule arguments are BS this early in the season. Besides, four of the Vikings opponents are at least 0.500, and the fifth was in the Super Bowl last year.

  • Scott Myhre

    Don’t you just love to watch the “screaming” talking heads? When they shout, they try to add credibility to their dumb comments. The Vikings are still 5 and 0 despite what this idiot says! Opinions are like ass’s, we all have one.

    • Josh Winters

      Oh yeah, sounds just like a moronic liberal… Go Vikings, SKOL. You’re an idiot Stephen A.

      • Erik Means

        what the **** does politics have to do with this?

      • Wayno

        No ur an idiot u will see they are not what u think they are!!!

        • shawn

          Lol, calling people idiots for believing in a young up and coming team led by Zimmer? This team has been trending up every year. Must be a Fudge Packer.

      • HeWhoKnowsAll

        Fuck yourself asshole. Way to interject your political bullshit into sports. Fucking twat.

        • Josh Winters

          Lol, calm it down buddy. I don’t have political views because our politicians are a disgrace. What I do have is an endless amount of experience specifically with “moronic liberals” behaving the same way. Because it got your panties in such a bunch, I wish there was a more appropriate thing to compare it to.

  • HeWhoKnowsAll

    I fucking hate this guy…

  • Andre Esters

    Before the season kicked off, people were looking at the Vikings opponents and they were likely chuckling… no easy task for the Purple People.
    Now that games have been played, its sooooo easy to say what about this, and what about that, Vikes are not that impressive. Its laughable!

    I look forward to coach Zimmer keeping his guys on edge, don’t let them sleep on being slighted.

  • Talltales08

    Why is he even on tv, what has he ever done? He’s never played ball that I know of. He’s just another in a long line of Farrakhan knock offs the net works are shoving out there. Want to know why I never watch sports center? Look no further than this.

    • David B

      Hollowing at n putting words on here about s a Smith only get him ratings. It first take the dum ass company that hired this dude that looks like his hair running away from his face. Fat. First take needed a house nigga. Who better then Stephen a Smith

  • FlVikesFan

    Stephen Smith is a total fool!! How does this idiot still have a job??

  • shawn

    Lol, SAS is so uneducated about the Vikings and Zimmer. I would kill him in a debate.

  • fritzdahmus

    These shows suck….mostly it’s the format that sucks. Typical mindless television.

  • Talltales08

    Why does SAS have to go ghetto every time some one points a mic in his face?

  • Finchy74

    It’s a badge of honor for that idiot to not like the Vikings.

  • Rick J

    Based on today’s game against the Eagles, he is right on…..Are the Vikes a mirage?

  • hugh mann

    Never in the history of human speech has someone spoken so much yet said so little as the relentlessly emotional and shallow Steven A. What a tool. When he has no point he yells and he’s always yelling.
