Post Previewing the Jaguars game

I swore off reading previews and matchups of upcoming games. Because there's just too much time to read it all. Besides, there's a reason they actually have to play these games.

Anyway, I accidentally read this matchup column in the NYTimes.com Bits column () about Sunday's game:

Jaguars(1-4) at Steelers (3-2)
Sunday, 1 p.m.
Line: Steelers by 12.

If you have waited a football lifetime to read the phrase “disgruntled punter,” you are in luck: the Jaguars released the disgruntled punter Matt Turk on Wednesday after Turk averaged just 37.7 yards per punt, including 22- and 23-yarders, in their 30-20 loss to the Bengals. “I want to be where I am wanted,” said Turk, who was replaced by Nick Harris. Turk, a 13-year veteran, felt the team was trying to make him a directional punter, even though his specialty is hang time. This is what passes for an interesting Jacksonville Jaguars story. Pick: Steelers.

What? The recap of the 2007 Jaguars-Steelers playoff game isn't interesting?

And the part in bold, I'm jealous I didn't get to write that line.
