I am up against it now

I’ m staring a massive magazine deadline squarely in the face right now, so I don’t have any time to post anything relevent here. I think the biggest challenge with the magazine is to get so much content up-to-date. We have over 100,000 words written, probably way more, but it’s quite another thing for those words to be insightful, accurate, and timely, and that’s what I’m dealing with right now.

What I do have is some prep work for the mag that isn’t all going to be used for publication, so I figured I’d post it here.

    Do you think Felix Jones will have a shot at starting? If he doesn’t start do you think he will be on the field with Barber?

  2. MI-5 says:

    Ahmad Bradshaw looks to get more work with Ward gone and Jacobs adding a couple too.

    I have to believe that Chester Taylors work will go down as “All Day” enters year three.
