The New England Patriots have to make a decision about the fabulously famous Tim Tebow pretty soon. Seriously, I like the guy. He’s a good athlete. Which makes me wonder about his decision to remain an NFL quarterback. Maybe he should consider, just consider, taking a shot at another position. He could potentially have a positive impact on an NFL team if he spent some time working his options. Just saying.
Is it me or have there been an uncommon number of injuries this preseason caused by questionable hits? The latest came when Minnesota Vikings Defensive Tackle Kevin Williams hyperextended his left knee when hit by 49ers tackle Joe Looney in a weird way. I saw no reason for Looney to take the angle he did but who cares what I think?
The New Orleans Saints picked up some desperately needed defensive help by trading with the 49ers to get Parys Haralson. The Saints have been hard hit by injury on a brand new defense they’re trying to build with offensive coordinator Rob Ryan. Jonothan Vilma has been out and New Orleans lost Will Smith in their last game.Eric Drouant
