And then there were three

We've got a new contributor to the PV blog. Holy Hitter will be joining us shortly. In the words of Martin Luther, "What does this mean for us?"

It means more content: I'll still be the primary writer, but Holy Hitter will join "What was that bang?" to provide additional commentary and opinion.

It may also mean some occasional critiques of the Pro Football Talk Rumor Mill. I occasionally have some issues with PFT--the negative focus (particularly player arrests), the Manichaean labeling of "turds," the unfair mockery (like criticizing Tiki Barber for using big words), the occasional specious speculation and logic--but I've usually refrained from comment. It is, after all, a place for rumor mongering, I generally like the site for the news and links, and if I don't like it, I of course don't have to read it. But Holy Hitter and I sometimes complain about what we read there, and as PFT grows bigger, it is as worthy of criticism as any other news source (and I haven't really seen serious critique of it anywhere else). And since the main writer at PFT often resorts to name calling and insults against those he disagrees with, we hope it is fair to bring reasonable critique when we disagree with him.

We're happy to be adding Holy Hitter to the site.

    I'm intrigued. What's with the Luther reference? And why "Holy Hitter"? Faithful readers want to know...
