Irrefutable proof of the media bias against the Skins
 
Which of the four teams with a rookie coach is [B]not[/B] pictured below ([URL="http://www.sportsline.com/"]Sportsline homepage[/URL])? Why all the hate, media?

It's not paranoia if they are really out to get you...

I wouldn't get all ruffled about this. It's Prisco's week 9 grades. The Dolphins, Falcons, and Ravens all already won their games week 9 games. We haven't, thus no pic.

Next time open it up and don't just read the caption. It starts off talking of the three because they have played their week 9 game and then they talk about Zorn. Here's the rest of the story.
Four first-time coaches took over teams in 2008, most of them no-names in a world of high-glamour coaches.


Tony Sparano has emerged as a Coach of the Year candidate along with his three other rookie collegues. (AP)
Mike Smith? John Harbaugh? Tony Sparano? Jim Zorn?

At least Zorn played. What about the others?

Harbaugh was that NFL quarterback's brother. Sparano? Loved him in that HBO show.

Smith? Who?

Now look.

On Sunday, three of the four won, and Zorn's Redskins play on Monday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

All four now have teams that are playoff threats.

Go figure.

Most, including me, figured the Dolphins and Falcons would combine to win six games. Now the Falcons, coached by Smith, are 5-3 thanks to their 24-0 shutout of the Oakland Raiders.

The Ravens, who beat the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, are 5-3 under Harbaugh. What's even more impressive is both the Falcons and Ravens are doing it with rookie quarterbacks.

The Dolphins, coached by Sparano, went to Denver and pulled off an upset, winning 26-17 to get to 4-4.

If the Redskins beat the Steelers, the four first-time coaches will have a combined record of 20-12. Even if they don't, it's still impressive.

The three teams that played Sunday and their first-year coaches get A's in our grades this week. All won on the road and all did it in impressive style.

Who are these men?

Yes but then it is the media's go-to excuse: "Man the Steelers are not playing well at all I wonder what is the problem." Rather than "Wow the Redskins defense really shut them down."

Someone was going to post this with indignation, so I figured I'd jump the gun.

No shit! isn't that the damn truth! It's always like that. ESPN is just as guilty of that kinda coverage earlier this season as well.

Re: Irrefutable proof of the media bias against the Skins
 
I mean I understand why the picture is not up there... we still have the game to play tonight. I just want to know why there is no real talk about this game on any of the sports pages. There is a bit on ESPN but that just went up in the last couple hours. Last week you would have thought it was the superbowl with all the Giants-Steelers talk. We get barely any mention. 6-2 playing a 5-2... but yes the Cowboys getting blown out is the bigger story even though we assumed that would happen.

Are you a used car saleman? You put that quote at the bottom in very fine print.

Clearly you're just another East Coast elite, trying to make me read the words rather than just looking at the pictures. If the "Fourth Estate" did not harbor irrational hatred for the Redskins then they would have included a picture!! (such a retarded thread)

The media, the referees, and other teams. In philly when I mention the Skins, I am told that they suck and are in last place, as recently as about and hour ago. I was arguing with a friend. He claimed that they have a mediocre quarter back, no run game, no receivers, and a weak defense. Haha, he was suprised to find that they are 6-2 and amazing.
