When the word "media" is mentioned and the various perceptions of them are noted, oftentimes we as readers and listeners have a tendency to lump them all together, the plural becomes singular.

Today's media are not all lacking in responsibility. What we do find though [espically in the world of sports] is a highly opinionated group, reporting, not based on facts but strictly on their opinions. Opinion reporting always has to be taken with a grain of salt. One could be safe in characterizing much of it as discussion as opposed to the actual reporting of facts as they occur.

For people like myself, first ordained in the world of sports reporting prior to the Huntley - Brinkley years where there was 25 min on news and 5 min of sports on a daily basis, what goes on in that same world today could easily be described as shock and awe.

Agreed,I would put Warren Sapp in that group,althought he's not a favorit of mine ....this was very good.I for one think the 3-4 would better for AH and at the nose guard he'd be all pro every year.This was on the NFL network last night.

Well since NFL Films made the point, I will let their research stand on its own.

Re: Haynesworth PASSES Conditioning Test

Can anyone help me out? I want to make a custom Madden cover of the whole Haynesworth conditioning test debacle. I need to find a funny photo for the main image. I remember seeing one of Albert looking totally annoyed and disinterested while a coach helped him stretch. I know kind of a needle in a haystack deal, but there are plenty of photos of Albert looking uninspired. If anyone could help me find that one, I'd be so appreciative. The look on his face was classic.

Re: Haynesworth PASSES Conditioning Test

Bob Stoops of Oklahoma fame on M & M this morning said that his lineman had to run the shuttle run and were required to make it in.....52 seconds.
AH...you should be ashamed

Re: Haynesworth PASSES Conditioning Test

Fyi

Haynesworth was the last player to arrive at Fedex today. I was watching CSN and he either showed up at 5:28 or 6:28. I didnt get home till 6, but i think it might have been a tape of ealier in the day (the ending number was definitely 28 though).

I hope players didnt have to be there by the half hour mark, cause he was just kind of strolling in. They talked about it a little bit in the pregame show, i dont think its a huge deal but there might be a little bit to it. Maybe Haynesworth is still trying to make a point?

# Haynesworth said there are some positive elements to his role that he didn't expect. He praised Jim Haslett for his individual work w/ him 4 minutes ago via twidroid

# Haynesworth on his relationship with Shanahan: "He's the head coach; I'm a player. That's what it is." 5 minutes ago via twidroid

# Haynesworth on the criticism: "I don't care." 8 minutes ago via twidroid

# Haynesworth on the defensive scheme: "It's different but I like it." 9 minutes ago via twidroid
I think these quotes can speak for themselves.

That they injured several quarterbacks. Thing is, the Giants were such dogshit in the Super Bowl the Ravens were better off with Collins in.

Worry about your flimsy D-linemen. We have the best in the game.
