- Barry Svrluga’s Sunday Redskins articles at the Washington Post have been consistently interesting, but I thought the one this past Sunday about Portis and the line was a particularly good depiction of the strange camaraderie of the football workplace. I know it sounds like I’m overdramatizing, but … having been around the team for a little longer now, I thought this was an accurate piece of writing.
- While we’re talking about perspectives, Rich Tandler puts an interesting spin on the Zorn/O’Halloran kerfluffle by explaining a time he nearly had a similar experience. He reaches an interesting conclusion, also, one I’ll be watching out for in upcoming Zorn press conferences. It won’t be as exciting as counting how many times the coach says “sudden” or whatever, but it’s certainly worth paying attention to.
- And Jamie Mottram does some Malcolm Gladwell-esque math over at Mr. Irrelevant, extrapolating all sorts of statistics from today to a full season.
