And this just in: Terrell Suggs had an actual Achilles tear, and he is back playing football. But Troy just had a calf pull and he is missing the entire season. Isn't that special?
Skip Bayless is a nationally syndicated writer/reporter/commentator which by default means that he really has no idea about each individual team and the situations inside the teams injury reports. Making statements about Polamlau, a subject I'm sure he knows very little about, is done simply to irritate, stir up, and in general get a fan base worked up to see if he can generate clicks or viewers for his company's TV/radio or internet markets.
It's not that he doesn't know anything, it's that he simply doesn't know the facts (and nether do we by the way and we're avid fans) and he's throwing something out there without an investigative report to substantiate any of it. So, yes, as far as I'm concerned he's Skip Useless.
Fine, so it's an opinion and he's paid for opinions, but something like that should have some amount credibility shouldn't it? I mean questioning a future HOFer about his calf injury, really?

I feel bad for the guy personally. Sure, he makes $500k/yr. But he's got listen to Stephen A Smith. That doesn't seem like a fair tradeoff to me.
