Although ESPN receives a lot of criticism for their original programming, they still do a solid job on the writing side. Their content is always strong and their contributors are very thorough in covering their subjects. That’s why the AFC North, South, East and West blogs are my first choice for finding the best and most relevant AFC coverage. Not every post is long or 100% hard news, such as the “What It Means to Bill Belichick It” piece, but they are always insightful and informative.
The Shutdown Corner presented by Yahoo! Sports is a great blog that provides coverage on the real stories of the day but also those stories that may not make the paper or the rundown on your sports news show of choice. It has a very clean and simple layout with great visuals to keep it from being one of those overwhelming news blogs. The blog has an “insider” appeal that will intrigue you to keep on reading until you’re either all caught up or out of free time.
