I find him to be an utterly useless columnist, he has zero insight, and a ridiculously inflated sense of importance, and actually believes his writing impacts the team.

He does a good job of objectively grading the team. If it were up to most Baltimore columnists, every Raven would get an A+.

I like Preston. He's a hard grader and I respect that. He supports his statements and isn't all bad. But I do feel he be trippin' sometimes on my man Flacco.

Now you wanna talk about hate? Jamie Dukes! What a fraud!

I don't mind his grades, but his columns are useless, literally all he says is run the ball, and Big Ben milks injuries.

NO! Nothing he says is OK. He is terrible. There's a difference between being critical and being stupid.

Preston really sucks. He's very full of himself as well. I remember him once saying in reference to some criticism that most writers aren't as courageous as he is.

Also, nothing is worse than his grade of Flacco after the Steelers game in Pitt last year. He gave him a B- IIRC, then backtracked once asked by Norris/Davis, saying that noone knows how hard it is because he had a deadline and closed his "gradebook" near the end of the third quarter.

Mike Preston is the Skip Bayless of the Baltimore Sun. He can occasionally make a valid point, but they are few and hard to differentiate from his other comments intended to stir the pot.
