In response to prolate0spheroid's comment:
I hate to single anyone out because there are lots I like to read, but I think many would agree that zbellino is probably the best of all to read if you want to learn more about football.
Funny. If I was going to say someone who "thought like me" was here it would be Prolate. There are a lot of things that go into winning and losing. A lot of fans like to try and boil it down to a "philosopher's stone."
Genuine intellectual curiosity rules that out. Prolate gets that.
I'd also add, in recent years, I like exchanges with guys like Hurl (when he's not arguing), Bredbru, PCMV, and Wozzie. All of whom, I've had exhanges with, but are solid posters who take the board seriously and know what they are talking about.
And (I say this at least once a year, increasingly to raspberries) TexasPat. Guy runs an eval thread for every game and for the draft. He's been doing it for the best part of a decade. That is a bunch of dedication.
I'll file Gints in there too. When he isn't trading shots with people over nonsense, he actually *compliments* the Patriots, BB, Brady et al more than a lot of fans do, and he has a good grasp on what's going on around the league.
Thanks Z, but you know way more about football than I do . . . I read your posts because I learn so much from them.
I do think we share a similar intellectual curiousity. I might put PatsEng in the same group, too. And Wozzy's got some of that. Also pcmv and mia and jri . . . all guys who seem more interested in understanding what's happening than in promulgating some kind of agenda. There are probably others I'm missing, but based on recent conversations those stand out.
There are other types of posters I like a lot too. Tcal, for just one example, cracks me up. Almost always get a laugh out of his one liners . . .
