there is no reason a human being should have to read James Walker's 'articles'

Part of me want's to be all "hell yeah!"

But then I remember that Walker rarely knows what he's talking about. :(

I don't mean to be rude and I very rarely say bad things about a specific journalist.  But walker is an absolute clown who doesn't fully understand the division he "covers."  I have no respect for people that do their job poorly



(And i'm not saying that just because how he writes about the bills, he doesn't understand the other three teams either)

James Walker isn't someone I read anymore. The other day this moron was saying how there is a Bills QB controversy now, cause Marrone had Tarvaris Jackson taking first team snaps. Anyone with a clue knows that that was the Bills plan all along...to rotate the QBs. It's just a lame attempt to get attention to his articles when we all know there is no story at all to be had.

Hopefully this is a case of "even a broken clock is right twice a day".

Yeah but he's our clown for the moment.

Last season, he also predicted the Bills as "upsets" in the AFC East.

To be fair, we were all upset. So maybe he'll be right this time.

Hard to fathom that ESPN even pays that hack Walker a salary.
Probably more like a free subscription to Insider, plus free parking and a small bag of peanuts for his treks to the Dolphins games.

Blogging isn't necessarily journalism.  Just sayin'.   It can be, but in many instances, even though the blogger may be a journalist, much of what is said and reported on are things done to illicit reaction.  Take it for what it's worth.

it certainly does seem like the guy is dropping the ball when it comes to his division. i look at a few of the others who have other divisions and sure there are a bit more on speculation, but those guys hit every piece of news about every team in their division.

Haha I almost put journalist in quotes but I was like no one will say anything.  Interchanging "journalist" and "paid professional sports blogger" doesn't change the point I was getting at :)

Wasn't McShay the one who was all excited about Arron Maybin? Loved the pick, next Bruce Smith, etc. etc., . . .  when everyone here was like, "really??"

But my apologies to the entire TBD family, I can feel the collective shutter and convulsions when you read the AM name.
