- The National Football Post has officially reached must-read status for me for Michael Lombardi’s articles alone. The fact that they frequently offer other gems — such as this overview of covering T.O., from ex-Redskin Matt Bowen (pictured above) — is just icing.
- Charles Mann (whose name is ALWAYS followed in my head by “for Swanson’s Hungry Man dinners,” and it is CRIMINAL that those commercials aren’t on the YouTubes) argues that players absolutely DO feel divisional rivalries, and reminisces about the 1983 game where the team wore fatigues into Dallas. Rich Tandler revisits the same game from a slightly more objective perspective.
- And Sons of Washington has the EXACT same reaction to today’s Bill Simmons column that I did, but where I’m at the point where Simmons just makes me shake my head and mutter to myself, MWP elects to write him a 1,300+ word plea to changes his ways. MWP makes good points, and I wish him all the luck in the world with it.
