I used to respect Peter King ... his knowledge, his contacts, his communication skills.
But like so many print journalists who have made the jump to TV, satellite radio, the internet, etc., he has really become full of himself. The last two things I remember him writing about our city and team are: 1) Jacksonville was supposed to become Atlanta, but it's just Hartford with palm trees; and b) The London Jaguars sounds about right.
And today, this:
Tennessee Titans (0-3) at Jacksonville Jaguars (1-2)
To: The 31 other teams of the NFL.
From: Jeff Fisher.
Re: The 2009 season.
It ain't over till we say it's over.
Prediction: Tennessee Titans 30, Jacksonville Jaguars 23
At some point this guy is going to get tired being so clever and writing about T.O., Brett Favre, Michael Vick and Jerry Jones' scoreboard, and find out that there is real substance in the changes that have been made here, and an extraordinary group of young Jaguars that are worth writing about.
