Itís the way of the world. Not what we grew up in, my friend.
Really?

I don't think poking around for a story is a new thing. It's been 12 years since Strahan spit out half a sandwich complaining about a question in a press conference.

but in the transcript, those questions seemed fair.

As a beat reporter, your job is to find stories. If there's a possible story angle, you ask about it. A media-savvy coach/player/executive understands that and knows when to shut down a line of questioning with a clear answer that says "Nothing there, sorry," as Shurmur did with "We're not in a bind."

And a savvy beat reporter knows that sometimes they're lying and keeps asking questions.

I thought a guy who has played well, and obviously was hurt a year ago, is Nick Gates. Thatís one guy that has done a nice job. We have Evan Brown who has played in there and done a good job. Those are a coupleó and then (Chad) Slade has done a nice job. (Then we) have Spencer Pulley, who I consider a starter, just as a couple of the guys, probably, who I have mentioned.


No where in there is Wheeler mentioned. Is he on the outside looking in?
