- Discussing the quarterbacks of the NFC West isn't going to die out anytime soon, so let me keep the wheels rolling. If you were a 49ers fan, how would you feel about hearing, "Alex Smith had an Alex Smith practice today"?

- Coolest training camp drill ever? (Teaser: it involved Port-a-Potties)
- Yesterday was NFL knee surgery day. On hand to celebrate the festivites were the Ravens' Dominique Foxworth, who had an operation to repair his ACL, and Indianapolis C Jeff Saturday, who had arthroscopic surgery to clean out that stuff that grows in your belly button. Foxworth will miss all of the 2010 season while Saturday could be out for a month or more.

Just another reminder that signing huge talents in the free agent market doesn't always produce huge results.
