USA Today's Hiestand: ESPN Should Give Parker Second Chance After RGIII Comments
Published December 19, 2012
POSTGAME PRAISE: In Baltimore, David Zurawik gave his "vote for the best TV post-game show of the year: ESPN's Trent Dilfer and Steve Young ripping the New York Jets like I have not seen an NFL team ripped by analysts in some time." Their commentary was "so informed, passionate, fearless and honest that I literally wanted to get up out of my chair ... and cheer." Dilfer, who was "by far the angrier of the two," talked about the way Jets coach "Rex Ryan's team laid down like a bunch of whipped dogs." Zurawik: "I love the way he and Young chronicle the absolute 'dysfunction' of the team under Ryan" (BALTIMORESUN.com, 12/18).
