    Steve Gleason is this week’s guest columnist for Monday Morning Quarterback. He wrote 4,500 words for the piece … using his eyes, and some special computer technology. Suffering from the devastating effects of ALS, Gleason is an inspiration to just about anyone who has met him or knows his story.

    But all of that did not stop an Atlanta sports-talk radio show, “Mayhem in the A.M.” on 790 The Zone,from taking some shots at Gleason Monday morning, during a horribly ill-advised segment.

    Scott Fujita, Gleason’s former teammate with the Saints, tweeted the following after the incident occurred:

    He is such a good man. In fact, if you notice during his playing days he had long hair. He would grow it out then cut it once a year and donat to locks of love, cancer kids.
