Hagiography Watch

Tony Dungy is clearly one of the "good guy" coaches in the NFL, but is there any reason to label him, as the Washington Post's Sally Jenkins does, a "Champion Of Decency"? At the end of the day Dungy is/was a football coach, not some sort of major leader or whatnot. I don't know, maybe I'm being too sensitive but it seems like title inflation. This might also be because I think Jenkins is the bottom of the WaPo's stable of sports columnists, providing little in the way of actual insight.
