Default TMQ

What do you guys think about him? I really like to read his column every week, even though he can be a wise ass about some stuff.

Anyway, the following quote in this week's column (http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2...k&sportCat=nfl) is great, I thought I'd share it :)

Quote:
Almost all quarterbacks play less well after they've been hit hard several times in the pocket -- the main exception is Ben Roethlisberger, whom the Jets face next, who doesn't even seem to be aware he's being hit, much less care.

More from TMQ today

Sweet Play of the Divisionals: TMQ loves the ploy, on a high-pressure play, of going to some guy who never gets the ball. Game tied, Pittsburgh faced third-and-19 on its 38 just before the two-minute warning. Baltimore, a power defense team, made an egregious defensive mistake -- see below. Steelers coaches sent rookie Antonio Brown -- who came into the postseason with 16 receptions, and who, when he does play, lines up in the slot as a possession receiver -- deep up the right sideline to draw safeties away from Hines Ward.

Ben Roethlisberger saw Ward covered, and he saw Ed Reed was on the left of the field. Roethlisberger throws the deep sideline route better than any NFL quarterback, so he turned right, away from Reed, and let fly to the little-used Brown, whose 58-yard reception positioned the Hypocycloids for the winning points. Brown even caught the ball against his helmet, just like David Tyree did in the 2008 Super Bowl. Let's hope Brown enjoys a longer career -- Tyree is already out of sports.

I love reading TMQ.

Easterbrook gets it and he can talk just as any other football junkie but he does it in a way that's entertaining.

I love the nicknames he has for the teams, (Cognomen), the rants, cowardly coaches, the cheerleaders, his theories of creep and other phenomena. He is hands down one of the most enjoyable sports writers I've ever read.
