The Late Round QB explains how these three were once dominant fantasy football prospects but now have dropped to the depths of back ups to the back ups.
However one or two depending may still have some gas in the tank.
COLD: Oakland QB Jason Campbell but this is a bit misunderstood because he was knocked out of the game with a concussion. Cambell’s overall play was very good however his protection was concerning.
Campbell should lose a week of playing due to the league concussion rules and that sets him back two weeks.
SLEEPER: Both teams honestly lack sleepers due to the lack of depth on both rosters but if I have to choose a sleeper…SF receiver Josh Morgan looks like a safe final pick of you draft.
Another RB who showed positive signs was Saints rookie Mark Ingram averaging 3.8 yards a carry and one that was a 14 yard dart for a TD.
Fellow Saints RB Pierre Thomas was a dismal 4 attempts for only 8 yards rushing. Thomas a veteran RB with the Saints is a huge question mark this year after spending most of 2010 out with injury.
Free agent and former Jet Braylon Edwards was on the radar catching one pass for 12 yards and was targeted twice in the game. Always good to see newly acquired players involved in the game plan.
Last but not least Saints QB Drew Brees did play with limited snaps.
Takeo Spike was ESPN Radio and let it be know that the NFL owners made a power play.
Spikes, “Straight power move by the owners and we thought it was disrespectful. Then I think the last thing was the fact that you were going to tell us when we had to recertify to become a union and do it by this date? Come on man. We can’t do that. We can’t do that. We’re gonna do our due diligence. We owe that to not only to a few players but we owe that to the entire body of players and the fans to make sure the product stays what it is.”
John Harbaugh on the draft day issue with the null trade by the Bears.
“They basically stole two spots from us and that’s not okay. That’s not ethical, it’s not right and I personally agree with our owner, Steve Bisciotti, that they should’ve been held accountable for it. But it is what it is and they didn’t do anything illegal so, we were just disappointed with them.”
Jim Harbaugh on the who will start for the 49ers?
“We don’t know who our best players are yet, to be honest with you, Tom (Waddle). That’s what practices will be for and who’s practicing and playing those preseason games the best, those guys will get the starting positions.”
