Is it me or did Maiocco's promotion totally bring down the quality of 49ers beat writer articles?

Without Maiocco's normal insight, I don't think we're getting the same kind of effort from Barrows. Maybe it's just me.
His latest blog entries are returning to normal form. His duties are different now because he's doing video segments and video interviews in addition to his blog/articles.

By contrast, Phil Barber's stuff is just downright bland. You never miss the water till the well runs dry (in another place). That most recent article about OTAs - yek!
