View Full Version : Keyshawn confronts Theismann

It took nearly three years, but Keyshawn Johnson got a heavy weight off his chest before Monday night's game with Tampa Bay. Johnson said he had a long-awaited conversation with ESPN commentator Joe Theismann in a television production meeting, according to the CHARLOTTE OBSERVER.

"The guy called me an idiot a couple of years ago when I was de-activated in Tampa," Johnson said. "I just told him that's not acceptable. I'm a guy with a degree from the University of Southern California. Idiots don't get degrees. Especially when you don't know what transpired within the organization, I'd just assume you would keep your mouth shut, because the next time that I'm an idiot on national television, I'm not going to be so nice. That was pretty much the conversation."

Johnson said he told Theismann his problems in Tampa weren't solely his fault. Johnson had a well-publicized feud with coach Jon Gruden that led to his de-activation and his eventual trade to Dallas.

Keyshawn was a idiot in Tampa. Really hes been a idiot just about everywhere hes been.

I always liked Keyshawn when he was playing up here with the Jets. He was a gamer and just wanted the damn ball. compared to today's prima donas, he was a cake walk. Parcells loves the guy. I actually met him once when our cars where stopped at a traffic light next to one another and he was a very nice guy.

it is about time that someone told Theisman to STFU!

I wonder if Theismann just sat thier and took it?

I'm not a fan of Keyshawn but I agree with anybody who has anything even slightly negative to Theisman.

Theisman is a ****** idiot.
