    Great hire. Great kid.

    Ditto Mizzou. He just left the media workroom here in Davie after putting in his last Friday on the beat. I've gotten to know Jeff well over the last six years and you really can't say a bad word about the kid. He'll do great at NFLN.

    I was stunned he didn't wind up at ESPN during the last round of blogger hires. Maybe he was waiting for something better.
  4. Isn't he 30 or so? When can he graduate from being called a "kid?"

    To an old fart like me, he'll always be a kid. A great kid, but still a kid. ;D

    I've known Jeff since he was in college, he'll always seem like a kid. I meant no disrespect... :D

    If anybody would like refer to me as "the kid," I will have no problem with it.

    Good for Jeff.

    Well, if Jeff is still a kid then maybe I'm not pushing 40... :D

    Wasn't Jeff one of this site's original "young f-in studs?"

    Don't know him. Like his work.

    Will 1HP replace him or shuffle the lineup and, how to gently say this, get a little bit more production from at least two writers?
