Check out King's response to this email:

UH-OH. THIS GUY'S MAD ABOUT MY REDSKINS VIEWS. From Ben Kreider of Mount Joy, Pa.: "You wrote, 'I think Trung Canidate, Dave Fiore and Jeremiah Trotter sure made the difference for those Redskins, didn't they?' You bastard. Just once, only once, please, with sugar on top, say something nice about my 'Skins. Something optimistic. And don't take the easy way out and say that Joe Gibbs was a great hire. You owe us for the bad info on Sean Taylor. By the way, except for your usually harsh (and all too often accurate) rips on the Redskins, I very much enjoy your column. I just was honorably discharged from the Navy, and during my five years overseas, you helped make my Tuesday mornings (time difference) brighter with football, Sopranos and, even softball updates. Thank you.''

Ben, I will say this. Dan Snyder sure has some nice suits. Hey, I happen to think they overspent on some players not worth the money. But I also believe that, in his three or four years back running the ship, Gibbs will figure out how to win with this team -- he's too smart not to -- and add another Super Bowl title to his collection. Is that sugary enough? I really think that, by the way.
also in the same article, some reluctant praise

With that in mind, I'm sure you can guess that the team that most impressed me this offseason was not the franchise that spent with abandon. Washington has improved its team, probably a lot. But I'm not a fan of gigantic bonuses ($8 million) to pretty good players (Cornelius Griffin), which is how Washington has done business in the Dan Snyder Era. We'll see if it works this year with Joe Gibbs, a better coach than Snyder's ever had.

That King is a huge NE fan shows in most of his writings. NE has been successful using their style, but I'll take Portis over Dillon every day of the week. End of the day, the Skins will succeed more because of Gibbs than any one player. He's always been able to make the team play greater than the sum of its parts, with better players he'll just make a better team. If the Danny wasn't out handing out $8 mil signing bonuses he wouldn't know what to do with himself, so I'll grudgingly take an owner willing to spend over the alternative.

Candidate and Fiore wernt brought in as big money players that were going ot make a huge difference, but he talks about them that way. Does he mention of Hugh Douglas was a big money bust, or Peerless Price? Its easy to bash on teh Skins because they make a lot of moves. They have had big player busts, Trotter was one of them. But why even mention Candidate, we paid him a million bucks.
