Joey Galloway Got Called Out With The Quickness After He Criticized Josh Rosen With Jim Mora On The Line
How Jim Mora likely would have responded if he wasn't on national television during a day in which it's imperative to his job security to make his program look stable...
Anyway, is there anything better than when an analyst just throws a bunch of cliched criticisms at the wall without definitively knowing whether or not they are rooted in truth, and instantly gets called out for it? I'm not even talking about following the Skip Bayless model of intentionally being an idiot for attention, because I genuinely find honest mistakes made out of professional negligence far more entertaining. That's especially true when someone like Jim Mora comes along and makes it super weird by absolutely refusing to let thoughtless narratives slide.
And I don't even want to make it sound like this is a knock on Joey Galloway. I can actually sympathize with him being a little off on his injury report as he's spending the entire day discussing the big picture status of every relevant team in college football. He almost had no choice to but to just look at UCLA's record and assume the quarterback - who is likely the only rostered player he knows by name - was somehow at fault for it. What else is he supposed to do? Research? Due diligence? C'mon now. If athletes turned analysts weren't allowed to babble pseudo-coherently about things they only have a rudimentary understanding of then ESPN's airtime would never get filled, and no one wants to receive their basic, cookie cutter breakdowns from people who had the gall not to play the game.
