ESPN's Chris Mortensen says that Patriots LB Brandon Spikes wasn't placed on the injured reserve just because of his knee. He reports that Spikes was late to team meetings on Friday, during the bye week, and that was the final straw for the coaches and front office. Apparently Mort also reported that this wasn't the first incident for Spikes this season. The Patriots placed him on the injured reserve instead of releasing him.

So Felando pulled off the shoes he was wearing, a pair of flip-flops bearing the Chargers logo. Offering them to the [homeless] man, he said he was sorry they weren’t sturdier footwear and he hoped they would be better than nothing.

“That’d be great,” the fellow said, taking the beach shoes in his hands.

Then his head jerked a little. He said, “Are these Chargers flip-flops?”

Felando nodded and noted that though he moved away from San Diego years and years ago he’s still a fan.

With that, the wanderer handed him back the flip-flips. “I’m good,” he said. And he walked off in his stocking feet.

The fellow blended into the darkness as Felando stood open-mouthed and thinking, “Wow, a new low as a Chargers fan!”

If you want your guy, maybe you should talk to Rick Smith about a possible trade to stay ahead of Miami.

Miami is in a similar situation to us in that they need OL revamp and help at pass rushing positions as well as ILB. What they have over us Ryan Tannehill, which means they're set at QB, they just need to put pieces around him.

BTW I think Tannehill would kill in an O'Brien offense.

Harbaugh saga promises to dominate 49ers' season (http://www.sfgate.com/49ers/article/Harbaugh-saga-promises-to-dominate-49ers-season-5281408.php)
...the friction has gotten worse. And given the events of the past week, it's become public. So there's no pretending that everything is fine.

And from what I've been told, the tension isn't just upstairs in the building. One source with inside knowledge of the team says that Harbaugh's act has worn thin in the locker room, particularly among some key "face of the 49ers" type players. While the team is winning, that's not a problem. But a few losses could expose a widening rift.

The issue isn't how to make the 49ers' brass more cohesive. Plenty of organizations operate amid chaos and hard feelings. As a 49ers source told me, "If Jim and Trent have a beer together, it's not going to make Kap throw the ball 4 inches higher," referring to the final play of the NFC Championship Game...

Yep.

Chron's new Texans beat writer Brian T. Smith confirmed again (on Buffalo radio station) what McClain has quietly admitted but never put onto paper that "they" have zero special knowledge about what's going on at 2 Reliant Park and that any reports of leaks from within the organization... like by "a scout"... are complete b.s.

OB is running a tight ship. Anyone who violates confidentiality will be fired.

For the most part McClain only comes out of his cave to pump Johnny Manziel. Manziel and his people regularly call "prime" media members. He and Gil Brandt speak as much as every other day. It's a new normal -- powerless media/powerful media machines/muddy waters.

Even so, voicing those reach/steal/value comments are still just more "conversation".
