SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

One of the things I probably wouldn't notice if it wasn't for Deadspin: that Andy Benoit of MMQB is nuttier than a twenty-pound fruitcake. The hot takes are endless. I want a steel cage match between him and Jaworski to see who can justify the most outlandish claim by mentioning they watch a lot of game tape. We're probably only a few years away from a politician justifying something horrible by saying, "You'd need to watch the All 22 film to understand."

Q: Is it a good idea to wear boxing trunks with a wall motif and the words, "America 1st" on them when squaring off against a boxer from Mexico?

A: No.

He really is. And his so-called analysis isn't worth putting up with the nonsense he spews.

I've always thought of MMQB as an NFL church bulletin, so it makes sense that there'll be some fruitcake content as part of the bargain. Along with the deviled eggs and the bean supper.

Quote from the faithful:

Church is like fudge ... sweet, with a few nuts
