As a former sports reporter, I really can't stand most sports reporters... - Mile High Report
A caveat here, I wasn't a member of the MSM, but I did use my position to get many a sideline pass to some awesome college football games. Armed with my trusty camera bag concealing a bottle of spiced rum I roamed many a stadium sideline in my younger days taking pictures of cheereaders and writing just the facts reports with the use of a post game cup of hard black coffee and someone elses' box scores.

Mid-season reviews are typically the sports pundits opportunity to gloat about their pre-season predictions, chastise other analysts obvious idiocy since they didn't agree, and in essence BS away their fictional version of why the NFL season has progressed as it has.  Statistical prognostications for the 2nd half of the season reach unparalleled absurdity and everyone including your girlfriend gives their "lock" for the Super Bowl. 

5 Tim Tebow tidbits you might not be aware of - Mile High Report
The QB stats don't lie. Tim Tebow has had an impressive debut as a starter. Sure he didn't finish in the top 3 in every category but he definitely is in the mix. What is really impressive is that Tebow so far has a tendency not to throw picks. A 2.75 TD/INT ratio for a newcomer is out of this world. In contrast most of the pundits treat Tebow like he is chopped liver.
