Stephen A. Smith has a lot of people talking about what he said regarding the best quarterbacks remaining in the NFL playoffs this year.
People talking about what Stephen A. Smith said is nothing new, of course, but this time, it’s due to yet another embarrassing mistake from the ESPN personality.
Smith produced a list of his top-five quarterbacks left in the playoffs and he had a pretty serious omission from the list. First, let’s take a look at his top five:
- Andrew Luck
- Pat Mahomes
- Philip Rivers
- Dak Prescott
- Tom Brady
There’s a certain quarterback down in New Orleans that might not be happy with the list Smith made on First Take Thursday afternoon. Smith left Drew Brees off the list, though he said it was a mistake and he just “forgot.”
We’re not sure how you forget one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time and a future Hall of Famer.
Brees and the Saints will be in action this weekend against the Philadelphia Eagles.
