Watch: Stephen A. Smith hilariously confuses Luke Falk with Yankees slugger
Stephen A. Smith has had his NFL knowledge challenged on numerous occasions because of some embarrassing flubs he has had on live television, and the ESPN personality made yet another one on Tuesday.
Smith was discussing Baker Mayfield’s struggles on “First Take” when he noted that the only quarterbacks who have attempted passes this season that have a worse quarterback rating than the Cleveland Browns star are Cam Newton and Luke Voit. Yes, as in New York Yankees first baseman Luke Voit.

Smith obviously meant Luke Falk, who has been starting for the New York Jets with both Sam Darnold and Trevor Siemian out. It’s possible saying “Voit” was a mere slip of the tongue, though Smith did say it twice. Plus, he hasn’t exactly earned the benefit of the doubt when it comes to NFL analysis.
Remember, this is the same Stephen A. who totally embarrassed himself with his take on Dwayne Haskins prior to the NFL Draft. He has also had some cringeworthy goofs when discussing baseball, so it would not be a surprise if he thought Luke Voit was an NFL quarterback.
