Does anyone care what this guy thinks?
Shannon Sharpe says the Broncos have to cut Javon Walker.
Does anyone really care about what Shannon Sharpe has to say anymore? Seriously, is he such a revered figure that every time he opens his giant mouth people take notice? He's not John Wooden is he? Is every word he butchers pored over so one can study its wisdom and brilliance? Of course it isn't.
Look, I loved Shannon as a player. When he was retired he was the greatest TE in the history of the league. He's a HOF lock (should be anyway). He was a great quote and everyone loved the guy to death. I even agree with his position, the Donks pretty much have to let Walker go. He's pissed and he doesn't seem to be able to handle being the #2 guy anywhere. But it's news just because Shannon said it?
As a broadcaster and opinion shaper, Sharpe is worthless. The guy's a clown. I can't imagine that there's a single person walking the planet that finds Sharpe interesting or insightful. Everyone in the blogosphere has nothing but contempt for the man. For one thing, you can only understand about a third of the garbled words that come out of his mouth. It's like he's got a face of marbles. For another, Sharpe has done nothing but rip the Donks since he retired. He's ruins CBS' pre-game show every time he opens his Mr. Ed mouth.
Please Shannon, quit talking about the Broncos. I don't want to hear it from you, any credibility you may have had was gone the second you put on a pimp suit and sat down between to Marino and Boomer.
