Why oh why do sportswriters ask such stupid, stupid questions? Apparently -- and this is a shock -- Drew Bledsoe refuses to say "yes" when Buffalo writers ask him if he should be replaced by Shane Matthews. First of all, I know Bledsoe has been bad, but Shane Matthews? And what do the writers expect him to say? "Yes, I have no idea why they are running me out there every week. I am truly pathetic." Asking questions with obvious answers is one of the things that makes fans lose respect for the local media, and one of the local media's worst habits.
This year's update to the playoff drive stats show that the football gods may have been on Peyton Manning's side this time. Also: Cam Newton and Alex Smith enter the mix, and why we should be comparing Andrew Luck to Dan Marino.
