According to Andy

“Andy Reid looks like the star of a CBS sitcom where the portly guy is married to an improbably hot chick; Mora looks like one of those clean-cut porn stars who isn't quite reliable enough to get his own one-on-one scene; Bill Belichick dresses like the lead singer of an '80s cover band; and Bill Cowher looks so much like Sergeant Slaughter, you keep waiting for the Iron Sheik to attack him”
Bill Simmons, breaking down the coaches in a typically astute NFL playoff column.

But what was up with Simmons’ column the other day about the Red Sox fan who was in a coma for the whole World Series run? If you’d showed me the piece and told me Rick Reilly wrote it, I’d believe you- how did Bill get through a column about a guy in a coma without any Morrissey jokes? (My version would’ve had “Talk to Her” jokes).

As for the playoffs, I stick with my picks- Eagles and Steelers. It’s been a home-team year.

UPDATE: Apparently I wasn’t the only one with the Reilly idea.
