    Whoever is covering Florida for the Orlando Sentinel should get this job.

    This is for the No. 2 spot. Greg Bedard has been promoted to the No. 1 writer.
  4. Are you just throwing this out there or do you know something?

    Maybe he's just saying it because the fact that the last two people to get this job have been Florida beat writers at the Orlando Sentinel.
  6. And I was just asking because my good buddy covers Florida for the Sentinel, and I hadn't heard that from him.

    Well, whoever gets it, it's a great gig. Look at the last couple of writers they had on that beat.

    Archer went to the Dallas Morning News to cover the Cowboys.

    Schad went to ESPN to cover college football.

    Darlington went to the Herald to cover the Dolphins.

    And who knows where Bedard could be in a year or so if he continues the tradition. If you're a young writer and want to cover the NFL, get your stuff in now.

    Bedard has been in Palm Beach for awhile, I know he was a finalist for the Jacksonville job, but needless to say this is a better, albeit much tougher job.

    I'm guessing Bedard will be there for awhile.

    Getting very tough to buy a house in SoFla, even on what the Post is probably paying him.

    It's interesting that former teammates Bedard and Darlington now will be rather fierce competitors. I wonder how/if their personal relationship changed.

    Did Bedard do strictly backup Dolphins in his stint as the No. 2 guy on the beat? Or were there other assignments tossed his way? The ad mentions other things as year-round beats, but I wonder if there was any spillover toward backup reporters on this or another major beat.

    Pretty sure just about every reporter at The Post chipped in when the Heat were on their championship run, and there might be a few other spillovers, but I wouldn't think the backup guy will be doing too much more than Dolphins.

    that happens all the time - it's part of the game. "nothing personal, strictly business"
