Today Trent Dilfer stated there is no better Offensive Coordinator in the NFL than Greg Olson of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  I’m not even going to bother wasting my time listing the OC’s that are better than Olson.  To me what is really baffling is Dilfer.  There are times when he can make these remarkably astute observations, filled with brilliant commentary that puts nearly every other NFL analyst to shame.  Then, a few days later he’ll follow it up with this kind of opinion.  The inconsistency in the quality of his thoughts is both baffling and frustrating.  I can’t help but wonder if concussions suffered while he was a player has something to do it, or if his producers are dictating that he take an unconventional side in order to create a debate.

 

“Epic” is a word that has recently become so overused on the internet that I have a tendency to ignore whatever it is being linked to or its author.  In this case I am going to make an exception and use it myself; check out this epic failure by a writer to promote her book after a blogger gave it a two star review.  If you want to skip to the good part, simply scroll down to the comment section.  Big Al’s Books and Pals: The Greek Seaman by Jacqueline Howett.
