It wasn’t a great night for Steve Young.
The Hall of Fame quarterback suffered a couple of gaffes in his analysis of the Houston Texans’ 42-14 defeat by the New England Patriots.
In his post-game comments on ESPN, Young talked about how NFL regular-season games don’t necessarily mean anything in the postseason, when Houston and New England could meet again. “This is the NBA,” he said, “where the regular season is kind of all over the place.”
NBA? Really? Co-host Suzy Kolber looked toward the camera and smiled, but Young never corrected the error.
In another spot, he criticized the lackluster performance by the Texans, a team “that think they have the biggest [male body part] in the league.”
Some viewers thought Young said “biggest stick in the league,” but no one could really explain what that would even mean.
Maybe it’s just part of Young’s schtick.
