    Problem is...who cares?

    This isn't a serious issue. Ask the hard questions about the franchise, the coach and the future of the team.

    And his biggest argument is that we didn't promote a PS guy instead and complains we list him as guard & center when he can't snap rather than a guy who

    a. knows the playbook
    b. has played in the NFL (even thought he sucks, he's a backup anyway)
    c. won't have to ruin a PS guy by constantly promoting/cutting/adding to PS

    This is a nothing article.

    I bet PK wouldn't have any problem with nepotism if it was Jake Matthews...

    Dude, read between the lines. The question doesn't pertain only to Kevin Matthews, it's also about Munchaks questionable coaching staff hires, bringing in long time buddies and letting more qualified people go.

    Even though Jake Matthews is supposedly everything his brother isn't and we do need a tackle, I would be very skeptical if we happened to draft him. Fortunately it still looks like we will be drafting a handful of spots too late for it to be an issue.

    It says nothing of that (PK directly says this is about nepotism), and even if it did, it's not the hard questions people want. It's dancing around the subject.

    I don't really care. It isn't like he is the starter of the team ever plans to play him meaningful minutes. They've cut him eleventy times.

    There are and have been plenty of guys like that not related to anyone. I guess Kyle DeVan is busy.

    More important questions.

    That's why it's called reading between the lines ;) But I agree it would have been better if PK had followed up with questions on Bruce, Chet, Nate Kaczor, etc. Then again he probably would never get an interview with Munchak if he did

    IMO, it's only normal that when you are in charge, you want to be surround by people that you know you can trust. It's not like he went and grab some buddy that didn't even know about football.
