In an arbitrary segment rife with arbitrary individuals, former Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin referred to Cleveland Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas as a “fat guy” who doesn’t impact a game in the way others on a list (provided by NFL Network) do. Turn up your volume a bit and take a listen for yourself. The whole segment seems to be of the “embrace debate” culture where analysts say things that they may or may not actually believe, but do so in an elevated volume as to exude passion and conviction. In Thomas’ six years in the league, the 28-year old has amassed six Pro Bowl appearances to go with being a three-time First Team All-Pro and a two-time Second Team All-Pro.

  • HAHAHAHA... a Cleveland Clown winning a ring!!! HAHAHAHA... stop it! You're killing me!!! HAHAHAHAHA
  • Micheal Irvin, I take it you still haven't learned real talent and hard work you slyed bye with you bs and great gift called skill and somehow was considered one of the best push off receivers and your secrets ways of tripping up defenders without being caught. Must have pleasing the refs in ways we didn't want to know about. Joe Thomas is one of the more creative blockers how many OL can constantly taking out 3 rushers at a time. and the hard work and effort made to keep making blocks and taking so many downs.

Bon Jovi and the Cleveland Browns Seriously Anger Fans
