Pub Discussion: NFL Writers

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by Bristol Insider, Mar 19, 2013.

  1. During the opening of NFL free agency, several hacks were busy helping our favorite bartender earn a living and the topic came up of five best NFL writers and five best "up and coming" NFL writers.

    Yes, this has been done to death. But need opinions from the board, please. Gracias.

    Are we talking "writers" or "reporters"?

    If it's the latter (guys who get the scoops), seems like Glazer and Schefter break the majority of the day-to-day stuff.

    If it's the former (the ability to craft a compelling narrative), Dr. Z retired that trophy years ago. Yes, I realize he's no longer active.
  7. I'll take Bob McGinn and you can have anyone else you choose.

    The "All-Time List" would have to include:

    Dr. Z
    Dan Jenkins
    Ray Didinger
    Dan Daly
    TJ Simers

    If we're talking writers, and not just reporters, I'll take McGinn and Gosselin as my 1a and 1b.

    Of the national reporters, I go with Glazer, Schefter, Clayton and PK...

    Newspaper writers, it's McGinn and Gosselin and no one else is close, IMO...

    NFL writers who I read regularly...

    1. Matt Barrows
    2. Sean Jensen
    3. Greg Bedard
    4. John McClain
    5. Tom Silverstein
  11. Serious question:
    Does Glazer write?
    I know he reports and tweets, but does he write?

    If he writes Glazer tops my list and no one else is even close.
