Peter King’s Mind

Sports Illustrated’s football guru seemed to start to lose it as the draft neared. Three months of obsessing over college kids will do that to a man. The day before the draft, responding to rumors that the New York Jets were interested in Trent Richardson, King, in a rare moment of indecorum, Tweeted:

“This Richardson stuff is so silly–a great example of the circle-jerking of a jillion of us covering the draft for far, far too long.”

In response, the Times’ Battista Tweeted:

“I don’t think I’m allowed to RT @SI_PeterKing ‘s last tweet about Richardson/Jets, so check his timeline.” - Monte Burke (AP Photo/Tim Larsen)
