Default I have to wonder why ESPN pays some of these guys

I mean, this article is from the "Page 2 lead editor". Um, first of all, isn't the job of an editor to edit?

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2...enfield/060125

I think ESPN's page 2 exists solely to either amuse people or annoy people. It certainly isn't there to provide critical writing of any sort.

Note: This is generally where Bayless's crap shows up too.

Michael Irvin? Skip Bayless? Plashke? Paige? These are the guys they have employed. Scary.

Typical bullshit you'll read on ESPN.

These bastards wouldn't know a great team or a great player if them/him smacked them in the face.

Remember,05 USC is the Greatest College Football Team Ever,even though they didn't win the National Championship.

When? It's always a bad thing. You know, it's the NFL, the what have you done for me lately sport.

Some day, teams and sportswriters will wake up and realize that you can't win using mercs the way you can in baseball. It's about building a cohesive team, which means keeping loyal and dependable players and coaches, possibly keeping them after their most productive seasons are long gone. A championship team requires chemistry. It can have all the skill players it wants and if there's no team chemistry, it ain't going anywhere.
