    The King item in question:

    I’ve always heard, reliably, that the Colts never trusted that they were totally alone in the Colts’ locker room in Foxboro, and that when Manning had something of strategic significance to say to offensive coordinator Tom Moore, they both stepped outside into the concourse outside the locker room. So if you’re outside the locker room Sunday, don’t be surprised to see Manning and his first-year coordinator, Christensen, huddling for a few minutes.

    What bugs me about this is how poorly he wrote it. That "reliably" doesn't really clearly point to anything....was his hearing reliable? Was it reliable that the Colts thought that? That it happened? Yeesh.

    Hell, this is King passing on a story about Manning and the Colts, and Bruce is using it to bang on King.


    It's as if BSMW has been striving for a 100% error rate on the site this year.

    Who on the Patriots football ops side does talk to King?? Kraft will schmooze him but who else really gives this guy the time of day?
    I think it's so cool how King lives in Boston but can't get any access at Gillette. :rocker:

    Pepe is a pompous blowhard whose columns are nothing more than an exercise in namedropping. Just knowing the best coach in the NFL right now and one of the all-time greats has no time and no tolerance that mediot is so so sweet.

    Btw how funny is Paaaaayton's paranoia?? That is hilarious!

    maybe manning doesn't like talking in the lockerroom at foxboro because he knows about the visitor's lockerroom in indy.

    I once worked for an attorney who represented (allegedly) persons involved in the mob. He had a great quote that applies in this situation, and that is, "Only a criminal thinks like a criminal."

    A namedropper like King very rarely quotes Brady so I'm not buying.

    King is a punk, tweeting he "guesses" it was about his Spygate 'reporting'. King didn't report Spygate, he made it a weekly part of his column pretty much the entire season in between his Starbucks love and his daughter's field hockey results.

    This.

    King did not do any investigating, he just regurgitated the PFT rumors. A total a** clown. And for him to 'wonder' why he and Belichick had a falling out is a total joke. Maybe if you actually looked at this with a clear head, he could have been the voice of reason in a public mob looking for blood.

    The facts remain, while what the Pats did was against the rules and we were rightfully fined and penalized, the actual info that was gained was alternate angles of what you are still allowed to tape to this day, just not from the field. You have to record it from the endzones or coaches box. King knew this and never did squat to tell it like it is. It was Al Michaels of all people on the following MNF vs. the Chargers who pointed this out.

    If Manning's paranoia is valid, then I hope Belichick has random people on cell phones and with ear buds all over the concourse and anywhere else that Manning could want to talk with his OC. I'm not saying that the communication devices even be active, just have them there to feed the paranoia.

    Peter King is the worst football writer out there. He knows practically nothing about football, he's just a gossip columnist. As others have pointed out he endlessly drops names of who he "just got off the phone with."

    He is useless gossip and BB treats him as such.

    I have reliable sources that tell me that Manning and Tom Moore never step into the conconcourse to discuss strategy while at Lucas Oil Stadium. They are too worried that the microphones that pick up and magnify the crowd noise that Polian has pumped into the stadium might pick up their conversation and broadcast it for everyone to hear.

    Wouldn't that only be an issue if they actually turn off the crowd noise? Or crap, I think Polian is on to me...:bricks: :D

    Anybody catch Peter King's name dropping last week?

    Patriots? Jets? Giants? There are no super NFL teams this season - Peter King - SI.com

    Wow, five paragraphs devoted to letting your readers know that a former player called you and talked to you. I'm sure your faithful followers were very impressed. Hope you didn't hurt your shoulder patting yourself on the back.

    To me I assume columnists like King have access to these people and over time develop a relationship with them. If I was impressed by that sort of thing I'd be watching E! and Hollywood Insider rather than the NFL. Personally I would prefer columnists write about football and football players rather than about themselves.

    I'm fairly neutral on King, but I agree it is staggering that someone could be reporting on the NFL for a living and know less about it than a typical die hard fan.
