San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis and wide receiver Michael Crabtree got into an exchange of words in the middle of practice.
After hearing what it was about Davis did the right thing.
According to reports apparently the whole incident was about Crabtree’s dislike for training camp and preseason games as in his teammates eyes he was apparently milking every last once out of his neck injury.
49ers head coach Mike Singletary stated to the media that Davis did the right thing, but went about it the wrong way.
I totally disagree as it doesn’t matter where it is. If you think someone is dogging it and not giving all they got at practice you need to get in their face right there and then.
The fact of the matter is that practice is for fine tuning technique and execution of plays and in the National Football League every snap is precious.
In the end, the only person that should be embarrassed by this is Crabtree.
It was reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, via Pro Football Talk, that the Buffalo Bills had a conversation with the Arizona Cardinals.
The reality is the discussion was probably really nothing.
The Bills have denied to having any discussions with the Cardinals about Leinart since it was first reported, which is typical in regards to any player under contract.
Most likely this is how the dicussion went:
Graves: hey Buddy this is Rod Graves from the cardinals. How are you today?
Nix: I am good thanks for asking. So, how can I help you.
Graves: I was just wondering if you were interested in trading for Leinart.
Nix: You know what I am going to have to pass. We like our quarterbacks, especially with the way Trent is playing.
Graves:ok. I better be going then I got more teams to call, but thanks for taking my call.
Nix: no problem bye
(Phone hangs up)
If Nix’s converstion did go any farther with about Leinart it was most likely Nix asking about the asking price out of curiosity.
It just doesn’t make sense for the Bills to go out and get a quarterback when they had free agency and the National Football League Draft to get one and they didn’t except when they drafted quarterback Levi Browm in the seventh round this past April.
In the end, the report is just most likely they Cardinals trying to create a trade market.
ESPN’s John Clayton ranked Buffalo Bills quarterback Trent Edwards 31st of the 32 strarting National Football League quarterbacks, abd has bo chance at becoming elite.
However, the fact of the matter is that he still does.
It amazes me how much people write off Edwards even though two years ago after four games was mentioned in conjunction with the National Football League. Most valuable player award.
That just wasn’t a fluke as Edwards knows how to pick apart a 4-3 defense with the right poffensive system.
Obviously, things fell apart after that as teams caught on to the Bills basic offense, and gave Edwardds very little options.
Edwards has the ability to be elite and has shown it this preseason already, and if come the regular season opener if Edwards performs the same way everyone’s opinion will change again.
In the end, with Gailey’s history with quarterbacks a lot of people will be eating crow about Edwards this year.
