Glad to see that a couple folks disagreed with me regarding Vernon Davis and his comments about staying in to block/not getting the ball in his hands enough. I knew if we had reached some consensus, it would probably be the wrong one, so I'm thankful that there were some dissenters among us to make me a bit more confident that yes, he is indeed right.
Aside from that, there's not a whole lot of news right now ... Braylon Edwards is day-to-day and that's really all I care about right now. He needs to get back in the lineup and he needs to be used, a lot. Also, did any of you see the new look over at SFGate.com? I used to not go there much for links, but Eric Branch going made me change my mind, he's a brilliant writer ... but that new layout might make me go back to not searching there. I'll tough it out for a little while longer. Enjoy the linkage, folks.
