Skip Bayless Was All-Caps Mad After Buccaneers’ Playoff Loss To Rams

To be fair, Bayless has a good point about the Buccaneers needing to defend Cooper Kupp better.

Dallas Cowboys fan Skip Bayless presumably got all of the outrage and agony out of his system last week after the Dallas Cowboys’ bumbling last-second Wild Card playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

But no, Bayless had new indignation and furious anger following the Tampa Bay Buccaneers losing their divisional playoff game to the Los Angeles Rams with a long pass from Matthew Stafford to Cooper Kupp and a game-ending field goal by Matt Gay.

As highlighted by The Big Lead, Skip was mad. And he used his Caps Lock key to show it.

To be fair, Bayless has a good point about the Buccaneers needing to defend Cooper Kupp better. The receiver had an astounding season with 145 catches, 1,947 yards, and 16 touchdowns, each of which led the NFL in those respective categories. Should Tampa Bay have put two defenders on Kupp during that drive?

You’ve surely seen the catches to which Bayless is referring. But just in case you haven’t, and knowing that it could upset Skip all over again, here are the plays from the Rams’ game-winning drive. First, a 20-yard reception, then the 44-yard dagger that effectively ended the Buccaneers’ chance of defending their Super Bowl title.

Oh, Skip wasn’t finished either. Nope, he had a few more all-caps tweets to go.

Just when it appeared that Bayless’s keyboard (or phone) was malfunctioning and his Caps Lock key was permanently pressed down, he posted a tweet that went back to lower-case letters about halfway through.

FS1 is surely hoping that Bayless saves some of his fury for Monday morning’s Skip and Shannon: Undisputed. Maybe more Angry Skip will result in some memorable video clips. Outrage is undoubtedly his brand and when he zeroes in on a target like the Tampa Bay defense, Skip is at his best. (Or worst, depending on how view his schtick.)

On the bright side, all of social media was spared a sequel to this tweet Sunday night:

NFL Total Access

‘NFL Total Access’ has been a part of the NFL Network since 2003 and today it is set for its final episode. The news of the show coming to an end came down earlier this month. Many of the current show participants took to social media to post their thoughts including hosts Mike Yam and Kimmi Chex along with analyst Chase Daniel.

“Tonight marks the last ever episode of NFL Total Access,” said Chex. “I was 7 years old when this show aired meaning that I spent my life watching. Co-hosting our flagship program this past season has been the honor of my career. I’m not going anywhere but for now, it’s goodbye TA.”

Yam said, “It’s been an absolute thrill hosting NFL Total Access. Today is our last show and while our team is disappointed, we are excited about what’s next for us at NFL Network. “Thank you” isn’t nearly enough to express the gratitude I have for the team. See you at 7est for 1 more run.”

A report from The Athletic said the show would be replaced “at least in the interim” by Insiders with Ian Rapoport, Mike Garafolo and Tom Pelissero.
