    At SI -
    Peter King- Boston homer
    Greg Bedard- Former Boston Globe
    Emily Kaplan- Former Boston Globe

    At NFL.com and NFLN -
    Alber Breer - Former Patriots beat writer
    Ian Rapaport - Former Patriot beat writer
    Willie McGinist - Former Patriot
    Heath Evans - Former Patriot

    It's like Boston is the epicenter of NFL media.
    I just threw up in my mouth a little bit...

      There's actually a lot of former Denver writers and players in the national media as well, though perhaps not to the same extent as the Pats. Rick Reilly, Adam Schefter, Stink, John Lynch, Legwold, Burger Bill, Lindsay Jones, Josina Anderson, and probably quite a few others, have Denver roots to some degree.

        Not in the same capacity. Of those you listed Schefter and Stink would be comparable. And they aren't homer (Schefter has been gone so long there is no homer in him)

        Reilly was a general columnist, Lynch is a game announcer. Leggy and Bill Williamson are on local division beat blogs not exactly national. Josina is a talking head.

        The Boston media continue to be Belichick sycophants long after they are gone...Stockholm syndrome, perhaps?

        Also I forgot Tedy Bruschi.

            Good call. He is actually the only one who homers for the Broncos.

                The mane hates PFF when it argues against that certain poster's pov but if it supports the pov they are great.

                  Agree. Schefter in particular has always been the conĀ·sumĀ·mate professional.
