    Wednesday's injury report: Taysom, Murray and PRob were DNP. Hendrikson, Armstead and Peat were limited. I'm guessing (hoping) that in the case of Taysom, Armstead and Peat they were just being cautious. Hendrickson practicing is encouraging. Tre'Quan Smith was back and a full participant.

    For the Yucks, Jason Pierre-Paul, RB Ronald Jones and guard Alex Cappa were among DNP's, Michael Evans, and Chris Godwin were limited. Cappa may be the most significant. Very good pass blocker, he is not expected to play

    breaux’s emergence is another concern for Tampa. 3rd game with a division rival it’s all about matchups

    No changes on either team's reports for Thursday. Tampa press saying Cappa is definitely out, and consider it a big loss.

    NFL Radio reports Saints Assistant HC and TE coach Dan Campbell will be the Lions' new HC.

    Seems weird. I didn't know he was on anyone's radar like Fontenot and I'm sure Lions fans were hoping for a bigger name.

    Equally weird, I didn't think teams could have contact with another team's coaches while that team was still in the playoffs.

    I believe all you have to do is ask permission to speak with another team's coach if they are still in competition.

    What’s our angle? Why else allow a conference opponent permission? Schematically it’s not the right move unless other factors. Soooo what’s our play there? Loomis/Payton don’t do opponents any favors. What if this was Atlanta? Still allowing?

    Not sure actually, but I cannot imagine an organization wanting to get in the way of a coaches potential for growth. I suppose you could, but what does that make you look like in the eyes of potential suiters?

    As evidenced by his body size, Andy Reid has GUTS!! What a call.
