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

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

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

    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.

    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...

    They have the league going 287-225 against itself. They gave out 31 more wins than reality would allow. I guess Josina is in charge of math over there.

    Predictions are silly and almost always worthless when it comes to sports. That being said, I do find some of them funny, especially the ones saying Denver would lose to NO, GB in the Super Bowl due to the Broncos defense not being able to stop such high-powered offenses.

    Um...how would they do it on their end?
