Peter King shares a behind the scenes story about the coin flip that helped lead to Drew Bledsoe's release. He also is able to argue that the Patriots made the right decision trading Bledsoe and keeping Brady, with only the third reason being that Brady is actually a much better player. Does anyone in the world still question this decision? King also offers two thoughts on the Westminster Dog Show, debuts a new feature on equestrian, and takes a shot at the NHLPA. Related to football, Brett Favre only gets one sentence, but more interestingly, he does not think the Jets will be able to keep LaMont Jordan (age 26) to play behind Curtis Martin (age 31).
