    Once a player practices in TC, he becomes ineligible for Reserve-PUP.

    I agree really POOR...writers should understand the rules and the details of them...totally shoddy...a bit surprised but...have seen it before. One would think someone would have caught it...GOOD post for pointing it out...

    I am always surprised how often the media gets simple rules wrong. The other day on PTI Kornheiser said something about putting a player who just got hurt on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Maybe he meant IR, maybe he just doesn't understand PUP. But a guy who earns his living reporting on sports ought to know what he is talking about.

    KG has never struck me as a knowledgeable reporter. She writes fill-in articles that are heavy with quotes and general impressions and empty of football analysis.

    I've wondered occasionally about the path of sportswriter, whether it came first from sports or first from writing. The best are those who love the game and love the language. Tom Curran is a good example of that.

    I'm not sure what KG's path has been. It doesn't appear to have started with football. (One doesn't have to have played football in high school to learn to analyze it, but I'm sure it helps :)).

    I seriously don't know why they have her writing about football. I'll leave it at that.
