I mean, I've noticed all year, they would have had 5-6, even 7 stories a week and now it's 3. But since they also don't have in-person access to the team, and aren't (I don't think) going on the road, it wasn't necessarily a bad decision, and maybe not even a permanent one. Their college football coverage remains extremely robust (particularly nationally) and they still have two guys on the Sixers and Eagles.
I assume the Inquirer won't be replacing Brookover either. Instead of two beat writers and a baseball-only columnist, Breen and Lauber will just do it all with the general columnists chiming in as usual.
And I believe the NFL's protocol this fall only allows locker room access to the team/league's own website reporters.
