    Well I guess I’ll start off by saying I will never watch First Take and have never been a fan of it. So now that we got that out of the way I will say I always used to be ok with him. Now it is a completely different story and I kind of hate him. I feel like ESPN has “brainwashed” him into extreme hot takes for the sake of headlines and the show. Does he really believe in these claims he is making? Is he a new Skip Bayless? Stephen A has always been the same person so I don’t have to go over him.

    Maybe not watching and just seeing his “headline” claims (possibly as clickbait) just has me in awe sometimes. This probably didn’t warrant a thread but I’ve being seeing a lot of his “headlines” lately and have been thinking “huh”. Anybody care to share any thoughts on him or the style of First Take itself? If not carry on and boo this thread!

    Well ESPN had a headline saying something about how he didn’t think Brady was the best or something to that nature. Maybe I misconstrued it (like I said I didn’t watch, just saw the headline) so blame ESPN for the clickbait.

    Personally I think you value Max Kellerman a little too much right now. I get the rule changes to a point but c’mon all other QBs are playing with the same conditions in the current NFL.

    I don’t value Max Kellerman too much, just saying his takes aren’t outrageous, they’re usually (not always) quite good (if you watch the show). I mean the title of this Thread was “Max Kellerman” and the purpose of your post was to point out how outrageous his takes are. I only replied because I think you got it wrong.

    And I don’t understand your point about the rule changes affecting everyone. That’s not the point I was making, in fact has nothing to do with it. The point I was making that the new rules protecting quarterbacks will alllow older quarterbacks to play effectively longer because they take far less hits. And Max’s original point, which was made like 3 years ago, was that Brady would not be able to play effectively when he was 41 because no other QB had ever, in the history of professional football, been effective at that age. Had nothing to do with Max’s opinion on Brady, which as he has stated many times, is that he’s the greatest QB of all time. However, the rule change, which wasn’t around when Max originally made the prediction, will allow older QB’s to play effectively longer because they’ll take far less hits. Has nothing to do Brady as it relates to other QB’s. Now I’m done. 😉

    QBs have been getting “protected” for longer than 3 years now albeit not quite to this extent but changes were in place already. I think he was already taking that into consideration when he made that claim. I guess we’ll see how many 40+ year old QBs continue to start after him and we can make our determination.
