Dead Letters: "Millennials.....All Bluster And No Balls"
From Deadspin - November 9, 2017

Welcome back to Dead Letters, the feature in which we reprint our favorite reader mail. We should take this moment to remind you that all emails to Deadspin and its editors and writers are on the record unless otherwise specified. Now for your letters.

Subject: Josh Freeman

From: Paul C.

To: Samer Kalaf

Josh has better stats that Colin. Why isnt anybody mad that Josh isnt signed. If you bring Colin in then the focus of your organization is on Colin and not the team or winning games. No team wants that

Subject: Kaper whatever his name is

From: William C.

To: Samer Kalaf

Dude. I agree. Sign the Kapernick (?) guy.Sign him for half a season.He has no idea what the Texans,or any other NFL teams play book looks like,let alone a clue about how to run any legitimate offense at this point.Im not sure the time frame it would take to learn the play book and then execute it to the level the level needed to even come close to making any kind of run at the playoffs.At this point,he has proven hes not the sharpest tool in the shed and, best bet, never will be. But go ahead.Encourage his signing.Since Watson is the FUTURE of the Texans the only thing that will happen is the signing of a quarterback for half a season of football.Then what?Ill tell you what. Kaper whats his name goes straight to second string QB or right back to a free agency market that doesnt want anything to do with him.Get over it!!!Hes done.But, again, what do i know. Go ahead. Sign him.

Subject: Laughable

From: Eric W.

To: Diana Moskovitz

A new rule LMAO do they think we are to stupid to know its a work place. Disgusting is what it is. To dishonor every man that fought and the ones that died to make it possible for them to have the right to protest. They will take a knee if it doesnt cost them anything. Well they will find out it does affect the all the things that make their paycheck possible. I laugh at them because they have no understanding of the real world.

Subject: Hi, snowflake

From: Ryan Ayers

To: Lauren Theisen

I suggest you do some research before you write another lets divide the country hit piece.

In America, more white people are killed at the hands of police than black people. Look up the yearly statistics.

The reason why you liberals dont win many elections these days is because you lie, so you can divide.

Subject: F.d

From: John N.

To: Lauren Theisen

I suppose you are 20-something.Please dont further coarsen our already polluted discourse again.A lot of us dont appreciate it and dont find it daring, cute, or clever.Please grow up and be a professional.There are lots of other words you could have used, if you had a vocabulary.

Subject: Journalist and Editor: You need to be fired

From: Scott S.

To: Samer Kalaf

Very poor choice of explicative words to make your point.Not a very good writer are you.You need to be fired.

Subject: Language

From: Marilyn M.

To: Samer Kalaf

Surely a journalist can come up with a descriptive word better than the F word.That is totally unacceptable.It is your choice to use it BUT it is also my choice to NOT read any article written by you.Maybe you are not a real journalist.Maybe you did not attend college.Or maybe you did but failed.Whichever, I am extremely disappointed in your writing ability and lack of good vocabulary.

Shut up fag, its early, and people are just still just in awe about the stadium rather than just sitting. Once the teams are winning itll be packed.

Everyone

Subject: Vin Scully

From: Rob B.

To: Lauren Theisen

Going after Vin? What, your Mother wasnt around enough so you had enough insight to rip into it? Pathetic loser doesnt begin to cover it. Please return to the slimy rock from whence you slithered.

Subject: Vin Scully article

From: moneyinthebank

To: Lauren Theisen

Your article on Vin Scully is racist, demeaning and bigoted. How dare you attack a legendary broadcaster for his race and age. Disgusting!

Subject: Vin Scully

From: Michael S.

To: Lauren Theisen

Insinuate one of the most beloved figures in the history of sports is a racist for no reason. You are a joke. Gof**k yourself

Subject: National Anthem

From: Robert B.

To: Lauren Theisen

Lauren

I do not know you and this is the first article of yours I have seen.

1. VIN Scully is not just AN OLD WHITE GUY. He has been in and around football longer than you have been living.

2. The National Anthem is NOT a joke as you seem to think.

3. This veteran finds it exceptionally insensitive, insulting and Uber disrespectful of wealthy players to use our Anthem, flag and country in this manner.

4. I know unequivocally you dont care about letters from humans this way. I personally pray youll understand that you are also disrespecting a man that is old enough to be your grandfather. Would you speak about your grandparents or parents in this manner. If you would or do. Then you are further gone than presumed.

There are hundreds of thousands of Veterans Nation wide without whom you and those disrespectful rich punks would not have the freedom you do. Nor the amenities you experience. Since 1900 over 35 million men and women have given you those right and amenities. Perhaps you should think k of honoring, not demeaning that legacy !
