    I read that Dorsey is probably out for the year with a torn Bicep. Too bad. He was doing great things in S.F.

    Watching this game now, had it DVR'ed. James Wright didn't make a catch last year, but gets drafted. Then in his first game as a Pro, catches a TD pass...
    Here is a write-up with a pic. In the pic is also Philip Gaines, I saw him play in a number of games at Rice last year.

    zone. The was the ATL vs Jacksonville game.

    Got to see some of the Bill's/Panthers game. Trai Turner looks really good coming in from college, played very well for his first Pro game. On the other side Brooks still looks good as a backup with the DB's. Kyle Williams can still hang with the best of them.
