He says he gets hurt too much

DWIGHT FREENEY DOESN’T LIKE MY OPINION. Any response to Dwight Freeney’s comments in the Indianapolis Star regarding your NFL Preview?
— Joe Hoffman, Indianapolis

I heard Freeney was upset about me not calling him one of the best five pass-rushers in football, and ridiculing me for putting Brian Orakpo on the list and not him. I like Freeney a lot, but understand what that list was. It was a list not just for today; it was a list for today and the future. Freeney’s 30, and he’d missed 10 games over the last three years, and I always worry about the athletic pass-rusher once he reaches the point of his career where Freeney is. Will he be a strong pass-rusher for the next, say, three years? Who knows? I could be wrong. Wouldn’t be the first time.

10 games over the past three years?  Seven of those came in one season, Peter.  Three years ago.  Not a good answer.
