Stephen A.’s epic on-air blunder is a bad look for his career

Written by Tony Ghaul

Stephen A. Smith talks about sports for hours on end five days a week and mistakes are bound to happen. His latest involving the Philadelphia Eagles and wide receiver Jalen Reagor was a mighty big blunder.

During a recent segment of ‘First Take,’ the ESPN host was debating about the NFC East with Chris ‘Mad Dog’ Russo. After Russo picked the Dallas Cowboys to win the division, Smith brought up the Eagles and attempted to make a point as to why they’re the team to watch out for. He mentioned Reagor has a lot to prove in Philadelphia this season. He needed to do research on this, because Reagor was traded to the Minnesota Vikings.

I am sure that Smith and his ESPN colleagues have to do extensive prep for these shows every single day. But somehow, Reagor no longer being on Eagles was missed.
