When is John Clayton going to eat crow? He CONSTANTLY underestimates the hawks and then when they do well he simply ignores his old comments....

OR when will he admit he was wrong on Richard Sherman? He countless times said "HE WILL BE SUSPENDED".

Lets put it this way....JC may live here....but he bleeds Pittsburgh.

Clayton is just another example of the fad where guys who cover sports are treated like experts. Clayton may feed you a decent scoop every now and then, but he's still doesn't know dick about football.

im not sure why pittsburgh fans hate seattle so much, i mean they robbed us a super bowl, they should be thanking us. If it were Green bay or Dallas Cowboys, the media would have blown up the story far more. Dave Damishek also hates seattle and picks us to lose everything.



But in all honest i thought Sherman was done for.....

Hard to hate on an old local writer, but Clayton definitely tries hard with the national media to NOT appear biased towards the Hawks............sometimes to the point of being too harsh or critical.

I just think he doesn't want to come across as a homer so he goes against the grain on Seattle topics (as of late.)

I think he's been a follower more recently. He used to go with his own thoughts and he was pretty good, but now he just parrots what others think. I don't think his heart is in his job anymore. Schefter and Mort have been better for a few years now.

He's not bias, he is from Pittsburgh and is a Stealer fan. He somehow got on with them as a teenager (they probably thought he had some sort of developmental issues) and then later on moved to Renton.

He was the one who cost the Steelers a draft pick with his reporting...

Anyone remember a TV show called "Mr. Peepers", played by Wally Cox from 60 or so years ago? Clayton looks a lot like him. Kinda acts like him a little also.

John Clayton is like a bad car wreck to me. I can't stop myself from listening, but I know I shouldn't.

He got run out of town for costing his Stealers a draft pick.

But also too, Clayton was just on the Kevin Calabro show on ESPN 710 (not that Calabro is really on the show anymore)...anyway, he guaranteed that the Cardinals would lose to the 49ers. Good, because he had also been guaranteeing that Sherman would lose his appeal. This makes me feel very good.

Well he said today, Arizona will not win against the 49ers, so now I expect them to win! I think he is saying things as he knows the opposite happens and in a way is support Seahawks:)

Just throw this on the pile with the other authoritative guarantees Clayton makes. He loves to make arrogant, bold statements and pass them off as facts. He spent all off-season saying Matt Flynn would be the starter.

I would love if someone would spend the time to create a video or sound file of each one of Claytons "facts" and see how many turn true... Would there be any?

He also stated as fact that Carpenter wouldn't see the field this season.

I used to like Clayton, but in recent years his habit of making up in the air statements with absolute certainty has bit him in the rear more than a few times. He could learn a lot from Schefter, who is very skilled at knowing when to show total confidence.
