Is it bad when an eight-year veteran who had four 1,000-yard seasons doesn't know how the preseason works? Well, Chris Collinsworth admits that he's no longer going to pick his Super Bowl winners based solely on preseason performances. It makes you wonder if there's any correlation at all between being a former player and knowledge of the game. I mean honestly, I'll take John Clayton over Sean Salisbury and Ed Werder over Michael Irvin every time. I like Tom Jackson, but after him, I can't think of one former player whose opinion I value.
The Falcons are still trying to replace Tony Gonzalez, the Panthers must find a way to protect Cam Newton, the Bucs (as always) could use more pass rushers, and the Saints need anyone who can catch a football.
