I apologize to my non-Western PA and/or international (i.e., Latvian) readers, but it looks like it's going to be a fairly football-intense week of postings. If there are three rabid football markets in the United States, it's Pittsburgh, Green Bay, and Dallas, so this is a perfect orgasmic storm for those that like to watch an oval bundle of string and leather get knocked about in a corn field.
Sporting an obvious fight in this battle--which is good; it beats the nonchalant indifference of whether unemployed wheat farmers in Indianapolis or jazz musicians and pimps in New Orleans win the big game--I don't have much to offer as far as analysis or predictions, so I will do the next best thing: occasionally point out the blatantly obvious and making fun of Rex Ryan.
Anyway, here are some of my past columns that may, in fact, be relevant:
My thoughts on the saga of Ben Roethlisberger: Time To Take Some Shots
In Defense of Jeff Reed (kinda): Kicking the Kicker
New rules for the game: Football Reform
In regards to the pending CBA: 32 to 40
