Stephen A. Smith slams the first-take guest as “pathetic” and, in astonishing anger, urges him to “show up on the damn show.”

ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith shoots a guest during his opening remarks on Friday’s First Take.

The 55-year-old star couldn’t wait to get started on the popular ESPN show, while mocking guest Dan Orlovsky along the way.

In a hilarious segment, Stephen A roasted the former NFL quarterback for choosing to fly economy rather than first class.

The show flashed back to yesterday’s episode which saw Orlvosky making his way back to the studio and Stephen A gushed passionately about Orlvosky being ‘cheap’.

“Buy your wife a first ticket, you curmudgeon. Then let’s hear from Dan Orlvosky.”

The former QB was back on the show today explaining his flight.

“I really enjoyed it and it saved me a lot of money.”

Stephen A didn’t want to hear it and continued to mock him.

“It’s so pathetic. He’s so pathetic. Let’s just get on with the show.”

Molly adapted the segment into the ongoing situation between the Baltimore Ravens and their star QB Lamar Jackson.

She asked the pair if they thought Jackson would be the QB for week one.

Stephen A felt the Ravens have no choice as QB is an important position.

“I tend to think so, but it’s also by default.”

He stated that the Ravens have the biggest impact on the situation, which will be the deciding factor.

Orlvosky felt the opposite. He thinks Jackson is done in Balitome.

“Unless something changes. He won’t be their starting QB in week one.”

The NFL pundit felt Jackson made it clear to the franchise what he wants, and signing Odell Beckam Jr. doesn’t change that.

The Ravens tagged Jackson with a non-exclusive franchise tag last month.
