Hell, spend a couple of quality years studying the English language or decide to write in his native tounge (I'm assuming that isn't English). If he was truly dedicated to becoming a writer he could get there.
It isn't so much the syntax that worries me about his career choice. I think it's more the following:
1. He rarely has anything to add that the average Joe watching on TV didn't see. Granted, I've only between 3 and 5 of his pieces.
2. He's an obvious homer and completely lacks objectivity. There just aren't that many writing jobs for homers of one school.
Nut, I wish you the best but I have to agree. Unless you really want to buckle down and make some changes you won't succeed. I'd love nothing more than to play in the NFL for a living. The facts are, though, I'm 32, have a bad knee and have never played a down of organized football. That said it's not a good idea for me to quit my job and run up to Chief's training camp looking to be a walk-on.
