TWEETS:

Saints Injury Report: Did Not Practice-McBride (Ankle), Henderson (Concussion), Patrick (Thigh); Limited-Shanle (knee); Full-Greer (Groin)

Two responses to a Loss: 1) de-motivation 2) RE-motivation Time to get back to work!

Happy hump day everybody. Back to work! Getting better is a must.

Good line from Casillas on Cam Newton: "He's a superior athlete. A mutant, almost."

Shorter Drew: "THIS IS EVERYONE'S FAULT BUT MINE!" RT : Brees on off field problems: "...maybe made too much of a deal of."

Clearly. UPS don't play that s***, holmes. RT : Kromer: Joe Morgan will have to do a better job this week.

Brees on ' Jon Beason "He is a stud. One of the best middle linebackers in the league. He has a great presence on the field"

Panic on the streets of Birmingham RT : D is 32nd in NFL, allowing 464 yds. tie 27th turnover differential at minus-3

Panic on the streets of London RT : offense is 31st on 3rd downs (18.2%) through 1 game. Led NFL in 2011 at 56.7%.

Brees "We set the bar high and we have high standards. There is no harsher critic on myself than me"

Time of possession doesn't predict anything. Winning games produces a TOP advantage, not vice versa.

Kromer said LB Jonathan Vilma appears to be running around well, hopes hell be physically ready to practice after 6-week PUP window.

Kromer said the Saints signed WR Greg Camarillo and put WR Adrian Arrington on injured reserve

!!!! RT Rivera said Newton, RGIII are different QBs. Said Newton's size makes them hard to compare.

Roger Goodell says replacement officials did "a very credible job" during opening weekend of games...

Bounty case underscores possible need for coaches union | ProFootballTalk
The reality is that the squeeze the league is putting on the officials quickly would be directed to the coaches, if they ever try to become a union. Cornwell knows that the league is aggressive in such business disputes, and he also knows that the league would do everything it legally could to beat back a coaches union. Still, without one, the players will continue to have far greater rights. The coaches will continue to have, in comparison, none.
