    Slightly off-topic: Brade Wells is leaving StampedeBlue (Sorry sfgiants)

    Josh Wilson is taking over now.

    I don't care if you're a homer or not when writing/blogging for a team. But he was the most negative person ever. For him, if we weren't blowing teams out, we were doing something wrong. I just never liked his writing, his irked a lot of colts fans (and players), and I'm glad he is gone. SB Nation is usually top of the line with their writers but he was an outlier, just piss poor, had a negative attitude 99% of the time.

    I thought Brad did receive a lot of unfair criticism. We don't know the full story maybe SB Nation told him to embrace the "I hate the Colts" attitude. It worked well with Josh's positive outlook. Anyway, I did agree with a lot of Brad's points... but it is what it is.

    I always thought Brad looked like a scorned girlfriend. They never could do anything right in his eyes, and everything was magnified 10 times what it should have been with him. Basically he always seemed like the poor mans skip bayliss. Even when he did make sense, he presented it in a way that made you not want to agree with him just on principal.

    The main problem I had with it was he took his "critical" writing to a whole different level.

    I am glad to see him go and I hope the next writer for stampede blue will have unbiased opinions and provide in depth statistical articles. Brad blocked me after I criticized him ranking AV as the 16th greatest Colt.

    The one thing I will give him is that he at least responds to people on Twitter. Doesn't sound like it in your case...but I've at least 2-3 times had a back and forth with him on there about things he wrote. On once occasion he was actually funny.

    I hoped that he would do the Bob Kravits turn around when Polian left. I thought Kravits did the same thing...and when Polian left so did most of Kravits' negative attitude. I haven't read a lot recently, but it just seems that once the Tyrant left town so did a lot of the issues writers had with the Colts.

    I usually liked most of Kravits articles.

    Josh Wilson is one of the more fair/balanced writers out there... maybe he leans toward the 'everything is ok' approach which differs from Brad.
