Let me guess: Bayless thinks that Vince Young is the greatest quarterback in the history of sports, and that the Texans will collapse and cease to exist because we didn't sign him?

Default Re: Eric Winston debating Skip Bayless

I'm going to get slammed for this and that is ok but Winston can get on my nerves...not as bad as Bayless of course. I think the guy spends alot of time on the radio and TV trying to be the smartest guy in the room and talking a big game when I'm not really sold on his game at all. It is fine because he will have a career in this at some point but I hear him on different radio shows, on TV, quoted in MMQB like he is this inside source and I just want the guy to pipe down and play better.

Is there a bigger waste of life on this planet than Skip Bayless? He's like a breathing hemroid.

I'm not going to slam you. Halfway through last season, I was listening to Eric on the radio a couple days after a stupid loss. I was still seeting and angry, and he was jovial and laughing with the guys on the radio. I was furious.

Winston knows his stuff, but when he got that big contract extension he checked out. I wish he'd shut the hell up about how smart he is about the game and focus on HIS game.

I agree 100% with you!! He talks a good game but he can't take any of the heat when he does wrong.

2 seasons ago when he let a guy beat him on a play and Matt got hurt. I asked him via twitter how he felt knowing that because of his piss poor blocking and that he whiffed on that play that matt got hurt and he proceeded to block me on twitter since then. I can't stand listening to him. I just wished he did his job and played football.

Winston is one of the coolest Texans ever & last I heard there is still a lock-out so no I don't have a problem with him expressing his opinions with Skip.

During the lockout...sure. But last season I heard him on every station out there making excuses and talking a big game and then he'd get his ass beat. Athletes get interviewed. He seems like a media darling that wants to do everything while not backing anything up. I just think the guy needs to work on his game some more and then maybe he can work on the media circuit. I'm tired of hearing up "how close", "we work so hard", etc when you are spending all your time at remotes.

Considering his activity on the radio, internet, social media, etc. he is quite obviously positioning himself for life after football.

I don't know if I buy the "he needs to shut up and work more on his game" sentiment -- just because he's more visible doesn't mean he's not working on his game enough / as much as anyone else -- but I do agree that he overexposes himself.

Default Re: Eric Winston debating Skip Bayless

I don't know what some of y'all are talking about with regards to "Eric needing to shut up and focus on his game" or "checking out" after he signed a contract extension. The guy was one of the better RTs in the league last season. http://www.profootballfocus.com/blog...iency-tackles/

And who the hell cares if he's laughing or joking on his radio show after a loss? Believe it or not, there IS life outside of football and these guys do have lives. Sometimes football fans need to get a grip, these guys don't have to take their work home with them and they shouldn't be required to be visibly upset or depressed all week just to make us feel better, because WE have a unnatural obsession with football.


Oh well, shake the haters off Mr. Winston. You're doing a fantastic job, on and off the field.

Good for him, I would've done the same exact thing. That was a stupid question that had a 0% chance of producing anything remotely productive or positive.

Agreed.

I think he can be a lot better than he is. I don't have a problem with his media stuff, but he kind of puts out an image that he and the team are better than what they seem.

That's probably what he should be doing but as a fan I have a right to call bullshit.

Winston is intelligent and articulate, uncommon traits for an NFL player and that's obviously why he gets so many opportunities to make appearances in the media. And while not among the best at his position, he's still a competant NFL starting offensive lineman and I'm thankful that he's got some brains so he can express to we fans his opinions and relate his experiences about playing in the league.

Why do you get angry at players several days after a loss when they laugh or try to have a good time? I have never understood this. It would be a lot different if they were getting thumped in a game or they are acting like fools on the sideline. Why would you expect a guy to stay angry all week? I expect them to get the hell over it and start preparing for the next opponent and not linger over a loss and let it carry into the next week.

Eric Winston has a opinion on a lot of things and he is willing to talk to the media about them. I don't have a problem with him talking...he has the right to do that just like everyone else...
