A few people have inquired, both with me and in other forums about Peter King’s comments at the end of his MMQB column today in which he mentions Chris Mortensen:

Hey, Chris Mortensen! Wow, what happened? Get well! All the best to you, Mort. You've got to stick around to see a redshirt college season, and then four more good ones from your pride and joy. Really, be well.

The answer is that Mortensen nearly died a couple weeks ago from a tick bite. Rudy Martzke had the story last week.

I don’t think D&C are unlikeable. They’re passionate and sometimes their comments and opinions can be perceived as negative. But they are incredibly smart, well prepared and far more knowledgeable about sports than Toucher and Rich. That’s why they’re as successful as they are. Toucher and Rich are talented radio guys and they have a following, but if you want sports, D&C are the choice.
