Freddy's Letters: An Appeal for Ethics

You know how we're supposed to be all riled up after Sunday's loss? I'm really not.

In fact, while Freddy had a few topics of which he could bring scorn down upon rather easily, it would really just be covering the same things that we already know are problems. Yeah, Glover Quin got molested by Jimmy Graham -- that should not surprise anyone. Yes, Kareem Jackson is still awful, and Troy Nolan isn't worth anything in coverage -- we knew those things as well. Or at least we did if we were looking at things objectively. 

Luckily, Freddy was saved by Terry McCormick, a Titans writer who somehow jumped onboard at the National Football Post. Today, Mr. McCormick published the moving and thought-provoking article "Is Andre Johnson planning exit strategy from Texans?"  (since pulled, here is what the article once looked like) which would surely have been BRB-wide news and information that also would have likely dominated NFL's news cycle day ... if it were true.

But see, the issue of ESPN: The Magazine that he says is "the latest," actually came out in November of 2009. As did the Houston Chronicle piece he linked in rebuttal to it. Also, there's the part where Andre Johnson actually hired a new agent and signed a new contract with the Texans last offseason. 

So we're left with two possibilities:
A) A Titans fan who has had a documented history of letting his bias show against Houston is, as the kids would put it, "stirring up the shit" in a desperate attempt to make news.
Or
B) An overworked writer publishes a story he is pointed towards without verifying it's truth in the slightest.

Either way, Freddy has some ideas for Terry's latest news scoop below.
