Skip Bayless is easily one of the most hated television personalities in sports history, but Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman could very well hate him more than any athlete in America. We learned that on Thursday, when Sherman unloaded on Bayless and insulted him on multiple occasions during an appearance on ESPN’s “First Take.” Bayless repeatedly tried to bait Sherman into talking about his well-publicized Twitter feud with Darrelle Revis, but Sherman was clearly more concerned with attempting to publicly humiliate Skip. “Whenever you speak to me or whenever you address me, address me as All-Pro Stanford graduate, because those are some accomplishments you will never accomplish,” Sherman said. “You have never accomplished anything. “I am intelligent enough and capable enough to understand that you are ignorant, pompous, egotistical, credetent, and that’s really what it comes down to. And I’m going to crush you on here in front of everybody because I’m tired of hearing about it.” I never thought I’d say this, but Skip actually made a decent point in a rare moment of clarity. Sherman is always talking about how numbers don’t lie, yet he feels the need to go after guys like Tom Brady and Calvin Johnson instead of just letting his play do the talking. “Richard, you’re not letting the numbers speak for themselves,” Bayless said. “You’re speaking for Richard Sherman — again and again and again. You’re taking away the focus of how good you were the last two years on the field because you’re only becoming known for your trash talking. Sherman is undoubtedly one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL, but Bayless’ argument was that he plays alongside a great defense and seems overly concerned with tooting his own horn. Despite Skip’s best efforts, Sherman had no interest in talking about his love for trash talk. “I’ll put it like this — in my 24 years of life, I’m better at life than you,” Sherman said, looking completely serious. Here we were thinking nobody would ever insult Bayless worse than Terrell Suggs did last year, but I guess we were wrong. Sherman straight up roasted him.
