    Honestly, NFL Network's on-air coverage is better than ESPN's.

    However, ESPN.com has some tremendous local and national NFL writers (and some shitty ones); not much of a fan of NFL.com's written work.

    I love Texture but Apple has bought it and are killing it off for the most part. Damn.

    I don't know about joy and admiration, but I recall a time in ESPN's lifespan when it very much did seem to decide which NFL players it would promote hard - overwhelmingly so - that there was no other way to view it than a joke.

    Off the top of my head, I am referring to the post-Super Bowl, pre-Flacco Ray Lewis Ravens, Terrell Owens, Favre and Tony Romo.

    Duly noted on the concussions, DD, and the league's pathetic, seemingly seasonal crises of conscience - Ray Rice, bullying, corporal punishment, kneelers, so on (and which ESPN covers while acting the part of a Greek chorus). I have become so disgusted with the onfield product that the era slips my mind.

    I still get my magazines from Texture on a Kindle Fire.

    I think if they cut it now ESPN would hear cries of racism on the vocal left that pollutes twitter

    They'd hear about it, but I think they could take the heat, especially if they didn't kill it completely.

    You're right -- I have to think this is setting up Merida for a soft landing. I wonder if he'll have to move from D.C. to Bristol.
