Welcome to the first episode of VFL's First Take. I'm your host Jay majesty95 Crawford. For those of you that watched our previous segment of "Contender or Pretender" you will remember the great dialogue between Stephen A bigtubb_ Smith and Skip Crunk_Ness Bayless. That episode was such a hit that we decided to make it into it's own show. Each week we will select a set of topics from the VFL for Stephen A. and Skip to debate. I will do my best to moderate the action, but as you all have seen, when those two mouths start moving there's not much that can be done to slow them down. This week we are going to discuss the Detroit Lions and whether or not what we saw from them last year was just a fluke. We are also going to take a look at Tony Romo, the league's leader in pass efficiency through the first 12 weeks of the season. We're going to end with Shawn Merriman who was at one time one of the league's most feared pass rushers and who was recently claimed by the Cleveland Browns. So let's get started.
