Paul Zimmerman is "Dr. Z" right? the guy responsible for the chargers-saints super bowl pick this year? i can't stand gene wojo;slfjdgpaoihg either, except i have noticed he writes alot about the cubs. agree with you on sheridan, pk and stewart mandel.
Yeah, that's Dr. Z. His football prognostication skills aren't too great (:19: considering he does the predictions for SI), but he knows the ins and outs of football more than just about anyone. He is absolutely OBSESSED with line play, to the point that it's what he bases his announcer rankings on at the ned of the season, but he's the only columnist I've seen from the major media sources that ever actually discusses the topic. His old codger schtick makes me laugh too.
Hear, hear. I don't care much about anyone's predictions, but his weekly writing during the season is must-read for me. Sample from this week's power rankings:
New York Giants (4-2)
I mean look here, ESPN, enough is enough. I watched the Tom Coughlin Family Hour on your pregame Monday night. Did I have to watch assorted highlights from it during the game, too? Tom Coughlin preparing to take his Giants bowling, Tom Coughlin baking them little pies, organizing community sings, quilting bees? OK, I've got it now. Wonderful, heart-warming stuff. Can we move on, please?
