Rappaport is an insider. Preston is not. That’s the difference. Adam Schefter, same level of insider as Rappaport, has to have a driver take him to and from home to work and hour each way every day cause he is constantly juggling like 3 smartphones.
Preston hangs out at practice (when he wants to) pays attention (kind of) gets the same quotes we can get on the Ravens website. And goes home and writes his little articles.
And being an "insider", I assume he gets or creates all the anonymous quotes and stories, no? Again, quote Rappaport to Lamar and wait for the laughter.
