New Orleans Saints
A three-time Pro Bowl selection with the New Orleans Saints and San Diego Chargers from 1976 until 1984, even Muncie agreed he could have been better.
Nnamdi Asomugha apparently can’t choose between the NFL’s third-best defense and its worst. The 31-year-old Philadelphia Eagles castoff is “still torn between (the) 49ers and Saints,” NFL Network reported.
Nnamdi Asomugha and New Orleans Saints officials “hit it off” during the cornerback’s free-agent visit to New Orleans over the weekend, general manager Mickey Loomis told the Times-Picayune newspaper.
Paul Tagliabue, appointed by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to handle the appeals of players suspended in the bounty investigation, has overturned their suspensions.
Colin Kaepernick played well in his second career start, and the 49ers defense showed again that they are the best in the league. With Kaepernick again having a good performance the only question is who is the team going to use under center for the rest of the season and beyond?
Ahmad Brooks and Donte Whitner returned interceptions for touchdowns, the 49ers sacked Drew Brees five times, and San Francisco ended the New Orleans Saints’ three-game winning streak, 31-21 on Sunday.
The San Francisco 49ers didn’t even need their No. 1 quarterback to beat a fellow division leader in their last game. They may have found a new starter in the process.
New Orleans has players listed as out and will have some concerns at depth, but will have all their starters on the field when the 49ers and Saints play on Sunday. While the 49er secondary has several players listed on the injury report, New Orleans is getting back another offensive weapon.
This weekend’s game between the San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints is a classic match-up of the high powered Saints offense against the formidable 49ers defense. San Francisco will have to deal with one of the game’s best quarterbacks in Drew Brees as they look to keep their cushion in the NFC West.
In order to figure out what they have in Colin Kaepernick the 49ers need to start him against the Saints. By playing another game he will allow the coaching staff to get a better picture of what he cab do and determine if Monday Night was a fluke or not.
