That’s it. The gloves are off.

I’m not writing for rankings anymore. I’m not writing for laughs.

I’m on a mission.

Bleacher Report has announced that a vetting process is in place for 32 CBSSports.com NFL correspondents for each football team.

I’ve read the Job Description. I’ve submitted my application.

I am the next CBSSports.com correspondent from Bleacher Report.

Then I read the Assignments.

OK, so maybe I’m not the next one but someone will be.

If you haven’t checked it out yet then simply click the big,  "Apply now” link at the top of the page.

The window that pops up walks you through the job description, the application and the assignment articles that will lead up to a decision.

I know a few fans/writers here that should give this a go. You wanted a chance to write for a living; opportunity does not knock any louder than this.

It’s a seven-month commitment to cover your NFL team of choice and get paid for it. Fandom doesn’t get any better than that.

Unfortunately, I can not commit for the time frame spelled out and I shall miss out on this opportunity.

So instead of competing for a position I am looking forward to the quality of work that will be submitted and which I’ll be reading on B/R in the near future.

So those of you who dare, sharpen your pencils and may the best fans win.
