I keep forgetting that Inside The NFL is on Showtime, but luckily for me, Warren Sapp keeps saying controversial things to remind. This week's comment is on the Dolphins' "Wildcat Offense" and Warren wants you all to know that he think it's "disrespectful". Via ESPN's AFC East Blog....
Warren Sapp, found on page 142 in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most inflammatory sports commentator, considers the Miami Dolphins' exotic Wildcat offense an affront to the intelligence of opposing defenses.I'm not quite sure why Warren Sapp is so offended, or that he doesn't remember Ronnie Brown throwing a TD pass, but....okay? It's not like the Dolphins are world beaters this year, so I don't really see what the big deal is. I like Warren's honest approach, but you start to force stories....that's when your credibility starts to slip. You don't have to say something off-the-wall every week, but I guess as long as ESPN picks it up each week, then you mind as well keep it up.
"This is disrespectful to all defenses," Sapp said on Showtime's "Inside the NFL" roundtable Wednesday night. "It's disrespectful. You're taking the best player in the game, the quarterback, and you're putting him out wide, outside the numbers, and you put the running back in the back.
"How the hell you going to throw the ball? I'm not even thinking about throw right now. I'm going to get everybody in the gap. It's just power 'O.' You have the running back with the ball already in his hand."
