TWEETS:

Seems like people don't work in new Orleans the streets are always busy

The reward in the end isn't as sweet without being through the journey that got you there. That being said, I'm in the gym! Good day to all

It's funny how u know when u played call of duty too long. When u try and sleep all the images from the game are on a video roll in ur head!

Elway says it would be his goal to get Tebow to a team where he was in position to revive his career

All I got left is conditioning later on which I think I can substitute to hoop if down

Elways says team looking at Tebow situation now. He and Fox called Tebow Mon. "We just had to make a decision as an organization...

What would be the best chance for Broncos to win a championship. Says has to work through the process but trading Tebow "a possibility."

Elway says Tebow understod the chance to get Manning and he told Tebow a trade was possible, but no trade talks held yet

Peyton running a clinic. Absolute clinic. All class, all the time. This should be shown at every rookie symposium.

Elway said team doctors and trainers "felt great" about where Manning is in his recovery. "I don't consider it much of a risk."

Manning says of Tebow fans: "I think they can still be fans of his. I'm a fan of his, too."

Manning: "I plan on playing for a long time ... This is a now situation. We're trying to win right now."

What If ur woman says we should go somewhere (Vegas, Hawaii, miami) does she then expect u to pay?

Lol see this was the back and forth banter that helped make today's workout out funny and help pass the pain of a tough workout

": Whats on the menu for today workout, lunch conditioning, workout... That is all" similar menus

Hooters crab legs>>>>>>>

"I know that (the Saints) could not fit myself, Tracy (Porter), Carl (Nicks), Marques (Colston) and Drew (Brees)," now former Saints wide receiver Robert Meachem explained. "I knew that when anyone signed in the group, it would have an impact (on me)."

The replacements: Grading fill-ins for stars jumping to other teams - NFL - CBSSports.com News, Rumors, Scores, Stats, Fantasy
Nicks is a powerful inside player who was key to the success of the Saints offense. But Grubbs isn't far behind. He is a good, solid run blocker who needs to be better in pass protection. The middle of the Saints line has to be good because Drew Brees is so short, which is why getting a good, quality replacement was a must. The Saints did a nice job with that.
