Steve Breaston’s lockout lament

Several of you have pointed out a video from Cardinals receiver Steve Breaston regarding the lockout.  We’ve finally had a chance to watch it.

Breaston’s message is authentic and heartfelt, and he demonstrates an interest in the fans not as sources of potential leverage in the labor dispute but as human beings who devote their ever-shrinking money and time to following football.

Hopefully, his inspirational words will cause both sides to strengthen their apparent commitment to getting this thing done, hopefully before a July 4 holiday that would provide plenty of reasons for shooting off fireworks.

And when this thing is finally over, NFL Films may want to consider hiring Breaston to be a writer.
