Idea premised on something done better elsewhere. My amigo at Behind the Steel Curtain hosted an Adopt-A-Steeler program last year where he had reader(s) pick specific Steelers players and focus on them during games. A sampling:
I think this would allow us to get more detailed info on what specific individual players are doing throughout the course of each game and the progress they may or may not be making throughout the season. It's simply hard to evaluate 11 guys at once when you're watching a game, no?
I lead by example. As you well know my obsession with Pete Schmitt has no rational basis but I support it nonetheless. He is a long shot to even make the roster, let alone see any field as he competes with Nemo for backup fullback. If ever there were a player not to adopt, this is it, as I could be childless within a matter of weeks. Despite all that I sally forth undeterred, especially since it's so easy to identify the relevant Pete Schmitt related content that needs pimping at Hogs Haven: anything and everything written about Pete Schmitt. If you're already sick of Pete Schmitt related news, prepare to get sicker, because I'm adopting him. Per Redskins Insider:
So adopt your own player, or don't. Just a thought for an otherwise boring offseason, though please, by all means, let me monopolize the conversation with my shitty content.
In other news, mercifully Ben and the Curly R have returned, with force, as he documents in great detail the entire history of the Redskins coaching search in toto more effectively than I've seen anywhere else on the internet. He also has a way with pictures and clever subtitles that I envy. Enjoy.
Oh yea; TexSkins writes things, I get credit. This is why I blog.
