Hall of Fame Game: Colts vs Redskins
The Redskins defeated the Colts 30-16 in the Hall of Fame Game.
I didn't watch the whole game, but what I did see of it, I thought the rookie QB for the Redskins, Colt Brennan, looked great. He finished 9 of 10
for 123 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs.
He throws a great ball too. Perfect spiral.
I think if he keeps this up, Jason Campbell may want to watch his job. I think he's safe this season given that Brennan is a rookie and we're so
close to the season, but if he continues to get better, next season may be the one to watch for you Redskins fans out there.

The Latest in Green Bay
Brett Favre was reinstated and flew to Green Bay Sunday Night. He will be activated and put on the Packers roster. He will get a physical and
conditioning test, and will undergo some individual practices rather than team practices, at least to start.
Mike McCarthy and Brett Favre are supposed to be having a one on one meeting at 7:30 Monday night. McCarthy says that based on that, the Packers will
make a final decision about their direction to move forward. Translation: they will decide whether to keep Rodgers as the starter and trade Favre, or
hold a QB competition.
In his press conference Sunday, he kind of hinted at the Packers now not being so sure about Rodgers definitely being the starter. He is now, it
seems, basing his final decision on that meeting and how it turns out, which is good news.
They showed some clips of Packers camp on ESPN Sunday night and it showed Rodgers throwing bad passes. What a shock. So I'm hoping that they may be
reconsidering their pride and ego driven decision to move forward with Rodgers as the starter, without competition.
As Adam Schefter said, a trade is becoming increasingly unlikely. Teams will be getting less and less enthusiastic about bringing a media circus to
their team, and paying 12 million a year, for possibly only one year, to do it. Not to mention as time goes on, it becomes less likely that Favre, if
traded, would be able to learn the playbook in time for the season. Then you have to factor in chemistry issues.
I think this situation may become a little more dramatic before it gets any better.
But, McCarthy said that after his meeting with Favre Monday night, he will address the team on the final decision, and then will address the media. I
don't remember if he said when he would announce the result of that meeting, but my guess would be either Tuesday or Wednesday.
