We all have a love/hate relationship with Bob’s work, although I’ve typically found myself appreciating the position he’s been in and his ability to write exceptionally well even if I disagree with his opinions. Since he’s been predicting the possible breakup between the Colts and Manning many have ratcheted up their attacks on Kravitz, in some cases unfairly. Bob has even gone on the offensive himself a few times.
My radio friend JMV has been saying I’ve put my reputation on the line with this thing. I guess I just don’t see it. Didn’t John say Tom Telesco was going to be named GM and Jim Caldwell was going to be retained? I don’t see or hear anybody saying he needs to pay for that with his reputation. Didn’t my other radio friend Jake Query tweet that Bill Polian was going to be kicked upstairs (like he didn’t already have one foot out the door) and Chris Polian was going to be retained? I don’t see or hear anybody saying he needs to pay for that with his reputation.
I vaguely remember writing that there was a great chance of there being a clean sweep — no more Polian, no more Caldwell. Think I was right.
I can only tell you that nobody has done more reporting on this story, has better sources, more insight into the machinations surrounding this story. I talk to Irsay. I talk to Manning — although, not recently.
Do we hold Kravitz to a higher standard than say JMV or Jake Query? Do we expect too much of a professional journalist? Are we unfair?
