Richard Sherman Speaks The Truth On DeSean Jackson

Richard Sherman has written another post for The MMQB, and this time he is wading into the mess of stupid that has bubbled up around DeSean Jackson's release from the Eagles and alleged gang ties. It's the smartest thing that's been written about the situation yet. » 4/02/14 1:37pm 4/02/14 1:37pm

Voting For A Hall Of Fame Isn't That Hard

In between swilling citrusy beers and fetching Gatorade for Steve Young, the ever-lofty Peter King took a moment this week to write about his super duper favorite sport... BASEBALL! What, you thought his favorite sport was football? PLEASE. Behind baseball and eight grade girl's softball and keeping the Acela quiet car … » 1/13/14 11:36am 1/13/14 11:36am

How Peter King Got His (Late) Dog Because Of The Redskins

It's almost not fair to write about putting down an aged dog, because there's no possible way you can read it and not get misty-eyed. (Bill Simmons's piece on his late dog remains one of the best things he's ever written). Today it's Peter King's turn to pay tribute to Twitter-famous Bailey, who was euthanized last… » 11/11/13 1:04pm 11/11/13 1:04pm

Riley Cooper Hasn't "Been Through" Anything

Nick Foles, a quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, gave an interesting quote to Peter King after a seven-touchdown performance today. One of the day's storylines was that Riley Cooper, one of Foles's receivers—you may recall that he made headlines over the summer for calling someone a "nigger"—finished the day with… » 11/03/13 9:29pm 11/03/13 9:29pm

Who Is The Most Pompous Sports Pundit? A Scientific Investigation

Of all the stupid rhetorical plays columnists use—issuing thundering imperatives, positioning their banal opinions as the exact midpoints between varieties of unyielding madness, championing their cronies' worthless businesses as examples of the disciplinary power of markets, etc. etc.—the funniest are always the ones… » 9/25/13 3:40pm 9/25/13 3:40pm

The Deferential Spirit: How Peter King Became The NFL's Bob Woodward

Peter King had been sitting with me in a waiting area on the second floor of the Time & Life Building for almost an hour. We were surrounded by conference rooms and executive dining halls, a little exposed to the light Tuesday traffic of the office, chatting about King and his career and his new venture, The MMQB, a… » 7/22/13 4:17pm 7/22/13 4:17pm

Three People Subscribed To MMQB.Com, Thinking It Was Peter King's Site

Peter King's new website, Monday Morning Quarterback, launched today under the Sports Illustrated umbrella. Its logo uses the letters MMQB, so a lot of people think the site can be found at MMQB.com. But MMQB.com actually links to a site long devoted to the loftiness of office furniture. As you might expect, more than… » 7/22/13 2:40pm 7/22/13 2:40pm

Not Every Dillweed Is A Murderer

There was some pushback to my post yesterday asking Peter King to please "Shut Up. Shut Up, Shut Up, Shut Up. Shut Up." I'll just put this here, because something tells me King's tweet about Aaron Hernandez—"He was the 113th pick in 2010 for a reason"—won't be the end of this particular vector of thought. » 6/27/13 9:30am 6/27/13 9:30am
