Default Mike Tannenbaum makes my head hurt

The ESPN commentator and ex Jet GM has declared that he doesnít like the Wentz trade. He says that, after acquiring Wentz, the Colts have the 4th best QB in the division.

Thatís fine...everyone is entitled to an opinion. But, what baffles me is that, buried in his analysis, is the observation that Wentz Will be an improvement over Andrew Luck.

I donít know about anyone else here, but if heís right, I think its time to start booking tickets to the Super Bowl.

I am with you Brylok. I can't even watch ESPN or FS1 anymore. Dumb asses that only make us stupider. The only decent sports shows in my opinions are Get Up with Greenberg and, shit, I can't think of any other one. Cowherd is an arrogant bastard along with Joy. Skip and Shannon are worthless, as is Steven A Smith and Max Kellerman. I get way better information on this board than I do their shows.

The dude is stirring the pot. One has to wonder if he is really this dumb (he was fired from two teams who got worse under his leadership) or if he is the lone naysayer because he is paid to be that or if he wants to be the guy who can sit back and say, “I told you so!” If it goes poorly.

Meh, no one else really wanted him. But we were the best option for him. Itís a risk, a calculated risk. I do find it interesting all the parallels between the KC Alex Smith trade. Wentz might just be a for right now QB. Anyway, we gambled, hopefully it pats off. All these prognosticators can see the future about as easily as we can.

Itís mainly because they donít know the team as well as we do. Itís lazy reporting. Honestly when people talk about the media not reporting this and that, most of the time I donít think itís intentional, I think itís simply lazy half-ass reporting. Not a conspiracy, just good ole human laziness.
