lets be honest...I take their opinion with a grain of salt...

Remember early camp reports of Tyler Wilson looking like the real deal, only to turn out to be a guy on the bubble. Or what about reports of a gem we had in Jon Wetzel who didn't even make it to the first cuts. DVD last year was looking like the man, looked how they turned out. Juron Criner looked like a young Tim Brown, the reports go on and on. Is it just me or do you lose respect for the beat writers. They seem to have a bias

They report what they see. If a player is doing well, they report it.

It's the FANS that start getting their expectations out of whack based on their opinions.

You didn't notice that all the players now are the best ever?
It's the age of 24 hour media coverage they need something to talk about.
