Beckham case brings about bad day for Jaworski, Tynes

AP

Before hearing officer (and former Eagles receiver) James Thrash affirmed the one-game suspension imposed on Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr., a couple of former NFL players with connections to each team dabbled in becoming reporters. It didn’t go well.

Former Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes and former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski separately tweeted that Beckham’s suspension would be overturned.

Tynes tweeted at 12:30 p.m. ET “BREAKING NEWS” that the suspension already had been overturned. As it turned out, the hearing was still happening at 12:30 p.m. ET.

The tweet has not been deleted. After the decision upholding the suspension was announced, Tynes tweeted, “Damn teleprompter.”

Then, at 3:19 p.m. ET, Jaworski tweeted as “BREAKING NEWS” that the suspension would be overturned, citing “sources in NYC.” That tweet has since been deleted.

And so Jaws becomes the latest example of an NFL analyst stepping out of his lane, trading in his perpetual obsession with watching film for trafficking in information without ensuring that the information is correct. (Hopefully, his film analysis is more reliable.)

It’ll be interesting to see whether Jaworski addresses the situation, either on Twitter or on the air. Maybe he’ll take a page from Steve Harvey and explain that he simply read the card wrong.

  1. Jaws truly is a moron and it has nothing to do with today. Remember he also said that his “good friend” Jon Bon Jovi had no intentions of moving the Bills from Buffalo. So he has proven on more than one occasion to be a liar or to be incompetent.

  2. Before hearing officer (and former Eagles receiver) James Thrash overturned the one-game suspension. Do you mean upheld? That’s funny not as easy as seems.

  3. Jaworski is just like all of the other sports media dimwits who rush to be the first with “breaking news” with no regard as to whether it’s correct or not.

  4. Mortensen would probably say something like:
    0 games or 1 game…that’s splitting hairs.
    The report is essentially correct, as-is.
    The narrative out there from some people that my report is somehow off the mark or that NFL people would mislead me is simply ridiculous.
    The basic tenet that there was a hearing was correct.
    And besides, I wasn’t even the first to report that there was to be discussion on this matter.
    0 or 1 or 11 of 12, upside left, downside triangle, obtuse angle right, jibber-jaber dippity-do!

  5. Jaws once proclaimed that Colin Kaepernick would become the “greatest QB of all time.” Even worse, the whole thing was conjured up by ESPN to distract from controversy stemming from a false report they put out. The worldwide leader made a whole day out of Jaws’ “STRONG WORDS” that day. I can hear Jay Crawford right now, “STRONG WORDS FROM JAWS THERE!”

  6. “Before hearing officer (and former Eagles receiver) James Thrash overturned the one-game suspension imposed on Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr.,” I’m curious here Mr. Florio are you trying to insinuate that James Thrash is upholding this well deserved suspension because of pre-existing loyalties to the Eagles…

  7. The first sentence of this article also reports that it was overturned. Welcome to the bad reporting club PFT.

  8. Jaws did already address it. I don’t know the exact quote, but it was basically “Oops. My bad. I’ll leave the reporting to the reporters for now on”

    Not that I’m a Jaws fan….like at all, but he did already address it. Acting like he deleted the tweet and is now pretending it didn’t happen is just dishonest

  9. Remember a few short months ago when Jaworski’s “sources” told him that the Bucs were going to take Marcus Mariota number one overall?

    Apparently no one told the Bucs.

  10. (Hopefully, his film analysis is more reliable.)

    Ah, ha ha ha ha ha… Colin Kaepernick — tools to be the greatest QB of all time and future HOFer!!!

    Pfft. He was a bad pocket-passing, one-read-and-run QB playing Street Ball. And like every junk QB the NFL would catch up to his game and he was going to have to become a pocket passer to survive.

  11. Jaws lets his trap flap way too much. At times, I like his film analysis but his opinions are horrendous – see Kaep & Geno. He is a has been and trying to break news is comical. He is out of his league.

  12. I love Jaworski. I’d listen to him all day over someone who’s never played the game and gets all their information over the phone. Even if he’s wrong once in a while, you’ll learn something from listening to him. You know what they say; the only person who never makes a mistake is the person who never does anything. Love ya Jaws. Merry Christmas everyone!

  13. Jaws is without a doubt the worst football commentator on t.v. For all of the film he supposedly watches, the guy knows very little about football. How he made it to the NFL as a player is beyond me. He is a no talent hack who is poor at breaking news, poor at commenting, poor at evaluating talent, and after looking at his stats as a player, was obviously a poor player. He needs to go away to somewhere else.

  14. Ron Jaworski has turned into a buffoon. He is another Sean Salisbury.
    He let his already huge head get bigger and the result is another media blowhard who has Joe Theisman Syndrome — he yaks to hear himself yak.
    Lest you forget, Jaworski is the guy who said, “Colin Kaepernick could be one of the greatest QB’s ever”. He heaped so much praise on Kaepernick, I thought he was going to erupt in tears.

    Add Jaworski to the long list of former NFL players who are handed these tv jobs with no experience or ability and need to go away.

  15. This was copied and pasted

    Before hearing officer (and former Eagles receiver) James Thrash affirmed the one-game suspension imposed on Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr., a couple of former NFL players with connections to each team dabbled in becoming reporters. It didn’t go well.

    Where are so many of you getting that the suspension was reported to have been overturned?

    Why only 1 game? We all saw OBJ try to injure. The NFL fined NE, took away 2 picks and tried to suspend Brady 4 games simply because NE played outside on a cold night!

    Integrity of the game?

  16. Surprised Jaworski had time to investigate the case at all what with all the time he spends studying film on the greatest quarterback of all time in his opinion, Colin Kaepernik.

  17. Here is the good thing about twitter…..

    as soon as I saw the news was coming from tynes and then from jaws…. I knew I was being trolled.

    twitter does not lie

  18. “And so Jaws becomes the latest example of an NFL analyst stepping out of his lane, trading in his perpetual obsession with watching film for trafficking in information without ensuring that the information is correct.”

    It’s a good thing only those with journalism degrees are permitted to work in the media and criticize their fellow members. Couldn’t imagine what it would be like if those trained in other vocations, such as employment law, were to start critiquing someone’s reporting skills. That would really be bad.

  19. It’s just gossip.

    Twitter, facebook, they’re gossip mediums.

    The media site twitter without due diligence as a source of information quite frequently. They don’t want to have to admit that they are gossip columnists but they are.

  20.

    *********************************

    Note, James Thrash was a Skins player as well. First and foremost. Maybe ESPN or some other media outlet can make a story out of that one.
    eh?

  21. I don’t watch or listen to any of these guys. I turn the games on at kick off.

    Not interested in who has what biases or grudges against who.

  22. Jaworski has always been a know nothing, incompetent observer of current nfl players and teams. He always chimes in about things he is unfamiliar with…like winning formulas. If he himself would have been on a team with pretty much any other qb with some talent, he would’ve himself been a 1-2 year and our qb. He sukked then, and his opinions are about as good as his playing style. If I turn on some nfl matchup show, and he is speaking, I change the channel immediately.

  23. I was coming here to point out the “Kaepernick will be the greatest QB of all time when his career is over” analysis that Jaws gave a few years ago, but I’m glad to see PFT planet has me covered.
