  1. There should be a clause in Donte Whitner’s contract that states that if he tries to take any leadership role whatsoever – the contract is voided… 49ers are so screwed with this guy in the lockerroom – just watch.

  2. There were more people in Green Bay for an NFL event than were in Canton OH yesterday and PFT does all it can to downplay it by hiding it in the one liner jumble.

    No wonder people dislike the biased approach of PFT.

  3. “The Vikings quarterbacks didn’t have a great day on Saturday.”

    What an absolute shock!!! Can’t wait until week 3 after all the comments from fans to my Lions over the last 2 years. Even now, most Viking fans can’t admit they are in trouble and believe McNabb is going to be a difference maker for them. Can’t wait.

  4. There were more people in Green Bay for an NFL event than were in Canton OH yesterday and PFT does all it can to downplay it by hiding it in the one liner jumble.


    Want some cheese with that whine? At least it got mentioned.

  5. One bad day in practice and everyone is already jumping on McNabb’s ass. It’s a brand new year, give the dude a break already.

  6. In regards to the Browns – It amazes me how two reporters observing the same training camp and practice sessions can see and report two totally different things. Yesterday,’s Pat Kirwan almost gushed over the things he saw at Browns camp. Colt McCoy catching on quickly to the new system and Jabaal Sheard’s good quick inside rush moves were focal points of his report. Today, ESPN’s James Walker reports the exact opposite. It’s hard to believe they were watching the same team. Actually, it does make some sense. Whenever ESPN leaves the east coast they seem to get lost. Maybe James Walker was watching another team?
