Around the NFC South
By Pat Yasinskas
Time for a quick trip through some of the day’s headlines around the NFC South.
Tampa Bay’s Cadillac Williams finished second to New England’s Tom Brady for the Comeback Player of the Year award. In any other year, Williams might have had a chance to win, but this was Brady’s award from the day he stepped onto the field in training camp.
John Clayton has his final regular-season grades out and I think, as always, he’s right on. I might make a case that he’s being a little too tough on the Bucs and a little too nice to the Falcons, but he’s not far off.
Trent Dilfer ranks the playoff quarterbacks and he’s got Drew Brees behind Brady, Peyton Manning, Brett Favre and Kurt Warner. New Orleans fans want to weigh in?
New Orleans running back Pierre Thomas discusses his rib injury.
New Orleans rookie punter Thomas Morstead has been named the NFC’s Special Teams Player of the Week.
