Is Will Witherspoon the Right Answer?
Coming into the season we know we had the answer to the MLB position with Stewart Bradley. When he went down for the year, everyone kind of scratched their head and said “now what?” We tried two young options in Joe Mays and Moise Fokou but neither worked. Omar Gaither tried to fill the void at the position but failed again. Jeremiah Trotter was brought back to the team but has clearly shown he is past his prime and isn’t the solution. So now the team has made a trade, giving away a talented prospect, in hopes that Will Witherspoon can be a solid substitute in the middle.Famous New Orleans Saints Players of the Future
I have a feeling that when all is said and done the New Orleans Saints are going to end up with a number of newly famous players come the end of this season.

This game was televised on National TV, Sunday Night Football, for a reason; it was expected to be a very close hard fought battle. It did not disappoint. This game started as a defensive battle with zero points scored in the first quarter. The Falcons could not get anything going offensively. The Bears took their first drive of the game down the field and looked poised for a touchdown when Cutler threw an interception at the 12 yard line.Trade Update
The Bears made a trade today, Friday the 16th, for defensive end Gains Adams from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bears had to give up their second round draft pick in the 2010 draft for Gains which now puts the Bears out of the first two rounds of the draft next year because their first round draft pick was included in the trade for Jay Cutler. Gains Adams is in his 3rd season with the NFL and was the 4th overall draft pick in the 2007 draft by the Buccaneers.Eagles Need to Find More Offensive Consistency
Throughout the years, the Eagles have found a lot of success on offense by being able to spread the ball out get a number of different players involved.

Rather than a lot of different players getting the ball, it seems as though the offense is relying on one or two players to have big games.What Do We Know About the Eagles at This Point?
