Scanning the Savanna

Things like the ability to follow directions under pressure, which USC’s Mark Sanchez(notes) definitely displayed during his pro day on April 1, 2009. After his scripted workout, according to Rob Rang of, Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan asked Sanchez to make several more throws, which he did.

One surprising loss for the Green Bay Packers in 2010 was at Detroit to the Lions. Part of the reason was the first half concussion suffered by QB Aaron Rodgers. QB Matt Flynn is a solid backup, but all backup QBs enter mid-game pretty cold since they don’t take many snaps with the first team during that week’s practice. But the biggest reason why they lost that game was because of the Lions defensive line.

Michael Huyghue, the commissioner of the United Football League, seemed to be in high spirits last week.

“I’m excited about this [2011] season,” he said brightly.

Is there going to be one?

Huyghue sighed for a moment and then, with slightly less enthusiasm, said, “There is.”
