Clearly I have mixed feelings about Florio. Before he hit the big time, PFT was a must read for NFL fans. Hew used to do a weekly radio spot in Detroit where he would routinely break Lions news before the local guys had it (Mike called out Mayhew/Lewand as the replacements for Millen the day Millen was fired and he was not spitballing. He had sources). It really rubbed said local guys a little raw until they realized Mike was pretty good at his hobby (that's what PFT was in the beginning - a hobby) and they started reading and contributing to his site.

Take it easy. And if it's easy, take it twice.
