McGinn Gets Some Love

McGinn Gets Some Love

I read everything Bob McGinn writes. (Obviously). I've exchanged one or two emails with the man. I think, if given the chance, he could be the next Marty Hurney. (the ex-sportswriter and current General Manager of the Carolina Panthers) And I don't think Packer fans appreciate not only how good his work is, but how good the work is of most of the people covering the Packers in Wisconsin. (There are a few I don't care for, but I digress...)

So it's always nice to see Bob getting some national attention, which he does today in Peter King's Monday Morning Quarterback over at CNNSI.

I think few fan bases are better served by a beat writer than those in Packerdom by Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The other day, he told his readers how first-round pick Justin Harrell, the defensive tackle from Tennessee, was struggling mightily with his conditioning; how kicker David Rayner was 28 of 29 in kickoffs with competitor Mason Crosby so far in camp; how well players have adapted to camp, with no camp fights in the first nine practices; how free-agent defensive lineman Larry Birdline was embarrassingly fatigued in practice, so much so that McGinn wrote: "After that embarrassing episode, his career in Green Bay won't last too long.'' McGinn is an underrated giant in our business. I love reading him.

I echo every word. Kudos Bob.
