Chris Mortenson has died


Recommended Posts

I walked out of the room for just a few minutes and when I came back in there was DJ just all choked up.  Saying he had texted Mort YESTERDAY and they talked football.  

Me?  These days I cry at sad commercials so you can imagine my reaction…. 

Tough loss for all who love football like we do.  As good a person as he was a reporter.

The original insider for sports.  Trail blazer and sad he’s gone.


Me too. He was such a classy guy. He, John Clayton and Peter King were the type of NFL insiders that I respected.

Mort was the NFL insider before Adam Schefter and his smart phone.

Old School.


I liked Mort much more. I miss the early guys like Dick Schapp, John Feinstein, Tom Jackson, Jaws, and several others. Now, my favorite insider is Tom Pelissero.

He was one of the few guys Polian trusted, for a reason.


RIP Mort. You should be proud of how well you did your job with integrity and respect. The sports world lost a good person and reporter. :(
