About a week ago, I refuted the nonsense that DeSean Jackson is the 104th best WR in the NFL. This morning I pulled game film of all of DeSean’s ‘drops’ during the 2010 season over at Bleeding Green Nation, where you can decide how many drops he had.
On a side note, first of all, apologies for the lack of posts yesterday and this weekend. I had a few long magazine articles to finish off, and I have my buddy Kevin’s wedding to attend today. I’ll be walking the mother of the bride down the aisle. Boom. And then I plan on getting sloppy drunk. Double boom. Ah, who am I kidding, I’ll already have a nice buzz going before the wedding even begins. Anyway, once I shake off my hangover on Sunday, I should be churned out some good stuff more regularly.
I also wanted to quickly thank all of you that have been reading so far. Apparently, something like 70 people subscribe to the RSS feed already, a number that I’m more than pleased with. I thought for at least a little while traffic would be really weak when I launched a couple weeks ago, but it’s been great right off the bat. I owe a lot of gratitude to the people that have gone out of their way to promote Blogging the Beast, like Jason at BGN, Kevin, Ken and Co at Hogs Haven, the legendary Tommy at IgglesBlitz, Brian at McNabb or Kolb, and Cody at Bleed-Green, and even just people linking to the site, like my German buddy OCC from Blogging the Boys, and Bob from BGN, and Maurice from Philly Barstool Sports (a new find for me, and a very entertaining blog). Having such well-respected sites/writers endorse my new little blog here brings instant credibility, and it’s much appreciated, guys. Thanks.
