Thought #1 I’m pretty sure 49er’s head coach Mike Singletary made Dre Bly cry yesterday. Over the weekend Bly got stripped of the ball while trying to break out some 1995 Deion Sanders moves. Following the game, which was a lose to the Falcons, Bly didn’t seem very sorry, in fact he pretty much just said he likes to have fun, so what? By Monday Bly had done a sweet 180 by the time he held a press conference apology. So what happen exactly? Pretty sure the same thing that happened every time your mom told you to just wait until you Dad came home. You remember those days. You’d been Hell to deal with all day, threw a fit in the grocery store when she wouldn’t buy you that Ninja Turtle pie, (you know, the one with the green ooze in it), spent all afternoon playing Contra, and successfully chewed, and spit out, every piece of gum you could swipe from her purse. When she said,”just wait till your father gets home.” You laughed, “ha I don’t.” Two hours and one a bright red butt later you showed quite a bit more remorse. Pretty sure that’s what Dre just went through, Papa Singletary took off his belt and suddenly dancing wasn’t so much fun. Easy Dre, suck up those tears or he’ll give you something to cry about.

Thought #2 – NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has come out and said they MAY punish Raiders’ head coach Tom Cable for breaking an assistants jaw while threatening to murder him. Ah, I see how this works. Coaches and players always have different rules I suppose. I mean didn’t they when you were in school? Didn’t your pack an hour football coach warn you of the dangers of smoking? Didn’t your baseball coach accidentally get dip spit on you when ranting about how you weren’t allowed to chew? And didn’t your basketball coach forbid going out to the after party while secretly, or so he thought, sipping vodka from a coke can? Yeah Goodell you MIGHT want to step in when one of your coaching is tossing his staff around like they were wrestling buddies. You MIGHT want to say something to a team of a franchise, albeit an awful one, who is dropping first degree threats on guys. MAYBE, just MAYBE take a look at this.

Thought #3 – The Golden State Warriors have asked Steven Jackson to relinquish his title as captain after getting in an outburst in Friday nights game against the Lakers. Question: How bad does your team have to be for Steven Jackson to carry the “C” for your guys? I guess the answer is “as bad as the Warriors,’ but still this seems like a stretch. You’re talking about a career 15 and 6 guy, who’s constantly shipped around, and looks like he should be doing local commercials for some low budget personal injury lawyer. Please tell just drew names out of Don Nelson’s hat for this.

Thought #4 – Chad Henne played great last night. And now for a weeks worth of coverage stating Henne as the next Marino. As my friend Nick pointed out to me today, Henne will be completely over hyped for the next week or so in a very Romo-like fashion. I agree, until further notice he’s on “flash in the pan” status in my book. Let’s just hope he can milk a b list celebrity date or two out of it before he fizzles out.

Thought #5 – The NFL trade deadline is in one week and Brady Quinn’s name keeps popping up. The latest team interested seems to be the Raiders. Pretty sure if I was Brady I would sooner just work at the student center back at Notre Dame, but that’s up to him. On the other hand, it would probably benefit JaMarcus Russel to see a quarterback who actually uses the equipment in the weight room for something besides a bench to sit on during his daily pancake power hour.
