  • Jeffri Chadiha at examines the current trend toward shorter, faster receivers, with plenty of input from and attention to Santana Moss and Antwaan Randle El.
  • Michael David Smith at AOL Fanhouse takes a long, detailed look at Clinton Portis. His conclusions are favorable, of course, but his long-term predictions are a bit unnerving. On the other hand, the guys at Mr. Irrelevant are nothing but enthused about Portis’s new career as their T-shirt model.
  • And Dan Steinberg waited until Coach Zorn was done with his post-practice press chat today, then asked one last question — something about the time Zorn played with the Seattle Symphony. The result was yet another ridiculously remarkable Zorn story. I can’t wait until next Wednesday, when Steinberg gets Zorn to explain how he built the Great Pyramid at Giza. In three days. With his bare hands, and no blueprint.

  1. I heard that Zorn simultaneously laid the east and west half of the First Transcontinental Railroad.

  2. I absolutely love Clinton Portis as a player because of all the reasons that Michael David Smith describes (offseason conditioning, hard running, amazing blocking, etc). It absolutely breaks my heart that he felt he had to call out his offensive line a few weeks ago. I suppose he didn’t mean it like he said it, but there’s no excuse for that kind of talk. I wonder how he’d have reacted if his line had wished for a great running back in their backfield. Somehow, I bet he’d have felt disrespected and angry. I wonder how many yards he’d have rushing if he didn’t have this offensive line blocking for him. I hope he gets that sort of thinking in check and appreciates the work his teammates are putting in “in the trenches” for him to get his yards.

  3. Hi Matt,
    Do you know if your photographer Brian Murphy is the same guy that played football in the UK and was a QB in Texas High School. It’s a longshot but I was his left tackle and if it’s him be nice to say hello. I played ‘ball with CNN Anchor Caparas as well, it’s a small world.
    Hope the team kep this blg going it’s been really good and a bit different from the norm.
