Strahan Leads Three Cheers for Skins

I try to avoid all NFL pregame shows like the plague — especially ones that feature Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, Michael Strahan and Jimmy Johnson on the same set — so I missed this on Sunday. Here’s Strahan, who you may recall played for the Giants, leading a “hip hip hooray” cheer after discussing Jason Campbell’s awesomeness:

Howie Long: “Hard to believe Jason Campbell fell to where he did in the first round.” Really? Is it? Because the only two QBs taken ahead of Campbell in ’05 where Alex Smith, who at the time was the consensus No. 1, and Aaron Rodgers, who was taken one spot ahead of Campbell and still may turn out to be a great player in his own right. Maybe Howie is suggesting he should’ve gone 15th to the Chiefs who we now know have a little QB problem.

Other hindsight clairvoyance from the ’05 draft that Howie would like to let you know: Cedric Benson went way too high at No. 4, David Pollack has a flimsy vertebrae, and you guys all slept on Marion Barber and Brandon Jacobs — they’re beasts.

    I’ll believe in the power of Hip Hip Hooray when Daniel Snyder breaks the huddle after the next Skins win.

    If I remember right, in the exchange right before this clip, Terry Bradshaw was talking about the relationship between quarterback and coach and said something along the lines of “It’s very important to have a happy marriage, right Michael?” Cut to shot of an unamused Strahan as Bradshaw continues with his point. Supreme levels of awkwardness there.

    Stet, don’t go there man!

    Who’d a thunk it? Hip Hip Hooray?!

    I guess Zorn’s got the touch.
