    Anyone catch this story that appeared in PLAY ( The NY Times Sports Mag.) a few weeks ago.

    An interesting take on Brett Favre but writer seems a bit to jaded about the NFL.

    I don't know if the writer is "jaded" about the NFL. I tend to think that he is mocking the anal retentive, dictatorial management regimes that populate the NFL landscape.

    But maybe that is what makes the NFL so succesful. It's not like the NFL is suffering for fans.

    Seems like a bit of a cheap shot to me.

    Brett Favre = Analog Kid (was today's Tom Sawyer during his prime)
    Peyton Manning = Digital Man
    Matt Ryan = New World Man

    I humbly disagree. The game is popular for myriad reasons. But, at the end of the day, it's just a game. In the grand scheme, it's rather unimportant; it's not like curing cancer or ending homelessness. Yet, there are coaches like Belichick and Mangini, coaches that guard even the slightest bit of information as if it is a state secret. There is something eminently mockable about that.
