Earth's most intellectual sports columnist, Gregg Easterbrook, is back with the first Tuesday Morning Quarterback of the season on NFL.com, of all places. It's pretty weak Easterbrook, but give the guy a break, they just had the first exhibition game and he doesn't have much to write about. The column itself is just one more example of why the NFL is the best-managed sports league in the world by far: the league hires a brain-truster from the New Republic and the Atlantic, two magazines .0001% of football fans have heard of much less read, to write an enormously long column making fun of it and its alternative reality on its own website. The NFL is so cool that it gets the joke.
