1 I think I'm just like everyone else who follows this game, wondering who will employ LaDainian Tomlinson(below) in 2010. I have a strong feeling Mike Shanahan will be tempted and will look at some San Diego game tapes, but my guess is LT, who's 30, will be too old for the Skins.
2 I think Colts president Bill Polian needs to make linebacker Gary Brackett a happy man and get him signed. The one thing NFL teams learned while watching Indianapolis's defense in January is that Brackett plays bigger than he is and has a Ray Lewis--like nose for the ball. That, plus Brackett's leadership skills, could get him signed somewhere for a little bit of money.
3 I think I'm still waiting for the NFL to fine Vikings offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie for going on strike during Pro Bowl week and simply not showing up to practice. Where is the spine of the league? Fine the man. Heavily.
