On the latest episode of the ‘First Take’ show, Stephen A. Smith got the best opportunity to tarnish the name of ‘America’s team’ as their performance was unbelievably poor against the 49ers. Smith kept calling the team an embarrassment as he donned a number 88 Dallas Cowboy jersey as further mockery.

Smith said, “Cuz those Brothers was down 42 to 10 with 13 minutes left in the game. I mean just an embarrassment and I’m just looking at certain stats here.” The heated relationship between Smith and the Dallas Cowboys is known by the fans and the NFL.
