I've searched and searched, but I can't as of yet find a video link of Heath Evans going up against the hated Skip Bayless today. All I can find are some reports from those who saw it on ESPN's "Firsttake" and possibly "First and 10." Apparently, the main topics of discussion were Randy Moss and Auburn football (mostly QB Cam Newton). Evans reportedly staunchly defended his former teammate Randy Moss against Skippy's usual hyper-negative comments. I would gladly give my left you-know-what to see video of this, so if anyone finds it before I do, please provide a link. There are fewer more loathsome creatures on the planet than Skip Bayless. I'd love to see Evans pull a Jim Everett on him.
There may not be many Saints stories out there, but I've gathered lots of player tweets for you. They apparently have plenty of extra tweeting time this week. In the tiny bit of Saints news today, three rookie tight ends were worked out in case Shockey's rib injury is worse than expected, Chris Ivory's court appearance will likely be delayed until 2011, and Drew Brees visits Mandeville school to present an award.
Also, let's all root for the Ravens to beat the Falcons tonight. We helped them two weeks ago by defeating their arch-nemesis, so I figure this is the perfect opportunity for them to return the favor. GO RAVENS....for tonight only!
