Doug Tatum - Veteran receiver remains underappreciated.

49ers' Smith takes a cue from Drew Brees and a pitching coach | The Sun Herald
Matthew Barrows - In January 2004, the then-Chargers quarterback was coming off a season in which he had gone 2-9 as the starter. He'd thrown 15 interceptions and 11 touchdown passes, was benched for five games and finished with a 67.5 passer rating, the 28th-best that season.

New Vilma lawsuit asks for quick appeal ruling |

NFL calls Vilma’s new suit "improper" | ProFootballTalk
MF - The league hadn't responded to the Associated Press regarding Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma's new Saturday-night's-all-right-for-suing effort to overturn his suspension. The league has since responded to the new lawsuit, via a statement emailed to PFT.

New Orleans Hornets rebuilding in mold of New Orleans Saints, San Antonio Spurs |
Jeff Duncan - The official introduction of Anthony Davis and Austin Rivers did more than just show off the Hornets flashy new rookies to the local fans and media. (HansDat note: Jeff, it's time to dig into the story of how Loomis is supposed to run the Saints and the Hornets at the same time, when both are essentially full-overtime-jobs.)

Former New Orleans Saints player Az-Zahir Hakim hosts camp at Tulane |
Albert Burford - More than 100 children went to Tulane on Saturday for the Go Beyond the GAME football camp hosted by the Az Hakim Foundation.

Mark Wahlberg no longer can watch Super Bowl at home | ProFootballTalk
Mark Wahlberg says that his wife has banned him from watching the Super Bowl at home, based on his reaction to the Patriots' loss to the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI. (HansDat note: Where are the Good Vibrations in this household? C'mon, c'mon! Feel it! Feel it!)
