I admit to not having a valid point, but I'm going to make it anyway



I've never been one to accuse Yahoo blogger MJD of being insightful, but one thing that really irks me is when a writer basically admits his point is senseless, but goes on and argues it anyway because, well, otherwise he wouldn't have anything to write about.

On that note, he has named Jason Avant the Least Valuable Player of Week 4.  Now, I'm certainly not going to say Jason Avant wasn't at fault in the Eagles' loss Sunday.  He had four catches for 31 yards, which is a typical day for him.  And he dropped what would have been the most unbelievable play of the season.  A pass that Kevin Kolb put right in his hands.

But, as MJD even admits, it would have been a difficult catch, even for the sure-handed Avant.  As MJD even admits, it's not really fair to Avant to pin the game on him because he didn't save them at the last minute after four quarters of failures by nearly every other coach and player representing the Philadelphia Eagles.

But, even though he admits he's wrong, he goes on and says it anyway.  Really, if you have to start off a paragraph with, "okay, this isn't really fair," then here's a thought: don't write it.  If you can't even make a valid case for something, skip it.

The Eagles' loss was a team effort.  And there are plenty of players I'd assign blame to before going to the #3 WR who caught four passes.
