Started writing for Bleacher Report back in November of 2011, and I was determined to make myself valuable. I wrote five days a week, putting multiple articles up every day until my NFL editor turned me over to the old "Trends and Traffic" team, which is now BNT, or the breaking news team.
Worked with them for a while, covered the Olympics on special assignment in the summer of 2012 and then was invited for a paid gig with B/R's NFL on-call team. Had a wonderful experience working with the guys in that department through throughout the 2012 season.
Now, I'm a full-fledged member of B/R's BNT. I still get to cover my beloved NFL on a regular basis, but I'll be covering just about every major sport until they give me another job, doing something else.
If you're still reading, know this: B/R will reward dedication and excellence. I put my heart and soul into getting a job with this company, working long hours without pay for months before getting my shot. I took advantage of every opportunity I was given, and it has paid off.
I think Vontaze Burfict has become more than serviceable Jesse. You judged him a little early... http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1165403-vontaze-burfict-new-bengals-lb-delusional-about-his-own-worth
Jesse please stop projecting Kenny Vaccaro to the Chargers. We are not interested in drafting a SS.
Just read your article regarding picking up Carson Palmer and I couldn't agree more. His pickup hopefully won't doom Stanton. Like to see if Arians will allow Stanton to actually compete for starting QB or not. I can't help wonder if this move was prompted by Cards owner. If you ever have seen my posts you''ll see I'm a Stanton fan and hate the term franchise QB. Take Detroit Safford/Hill over Stanton, Stafford is 17-30 in Detroit and has never beaten Green Bay, had a first year QB rating of 61 with a hard to miss 6'5" corp of receivers led by Calvin Johnson. It took Stafford a year to correct his timing problems and they expect 3rd string Stanton to have great stats. Thank You, Paul
I know I'm in no position to tell you what or who to write about, however if you'd stop writing about Tim Tebow, you'd make a lot of Jets fans happy. As you may notice, we, Jets fans, are tired of seeing his face on the Jets' page, let alone seeing his articles on there.You can do much better than those Tebow articles.
Thanks Jesse! It's been a wild month so far and great for everyone here at B/R!
Hey Jesse, fellow B/R writer here. I just started interning here in January and have loved it ever since. I was reading your bio and I am both inspired and desperate to work harder. You're a great example of hard work paying off, and I feel re-energized just by reading a short bit about your story and seeing how far you've come. I know you are one of countless hard-working writers on here, but I especially liked your article on the best possible picks for every team in the first round. I really hope to be in a position similar as yours one day, and I'd just like ya to know that you've definitely helped this young writer become even more motivated. All I can say really is, well, thank you! I've fanned you and look forward to seeing more of your awesome work. Your articles are a great way for NFL nuts like me who love to know every single little thing that is going on in free agency hahah. Once again, thanks!
Oh yeah! :) No worries..
Thanks for the kind words, Jesse! I'm flattered, and glad you enjoyed the article. Hope things are going well with you and the BNT.
Thats alot of readers..
