I was reading SI on Friday, and stumbled upon a fan letter to the magazine. This was one of the most asinine things I’ve ever read. Here’s what it said: 

I can’t believe that Colts owner Jim Irsay got rid of Peyton Manning and is going with a rookie. It doesn’t matter how good Andrew Luck was at Stanford-this is still a recipe for disaster. Last season’s dismal offense and 2-14 record prove that Indianapolis does not have the talent to win with an inexperienced quarterback. — Al DiLascia, Chicopee, Mass 

To me, this letter reeks of ignorance. How can he “not believe” that Irsay is getting rid of Manning? It’s only been discussed in the NFL world for 3-6 months. Plus, to suggest that it is irrelevant how good Andrew Luck was at Stanford, is a terrible opinion. In evaluating Manning and his future, you must consider the caliber of prospect Luck. 

On the air, I discussed my issue with Al’s letter, and we left a voicemail to try and get him on the air. When Al called us back, we had a spirited debate about the logic of his letter. My partner Brad pulled a Brutus, claiming he agreed with Al’s entire opinion, despite originally stating that the letter was “moronic.”
