  1. Between Wise’s hatchet job on Chief Zee the other day that left me feeling like I needed a hot shower to scrub away the sickness in my soul and this new paean to stupidity from Reilly, I’m convinced its a race to the bottom between both pro and anti Redskins camps.

    I liked this debate much better when it was easily ignored pretentious finger wagging from Benjamin Freed or ham-fisted PR vignettes from Larry Michael.

    Now everyone feels the need to forgo their intelligence and launch into poorly thought out diatribes. Its exhausting to read, and its clearly not going to stop anytime soon.

  2. Wow. Whatever your take on the underlying issue, that Reilly column may be one of the most poorly written and poorly reasoned things I have read in a long time. I can’t believe this guy has a national perch at ESPN.

    I always read the Tuesday column on Grantland making fun of poor sportswriting, but no matter how hard you try to be intentionally bad, you can’t touch this clown.
