    So there was a play early in the game where Brandon Lloyd totally burned Aquib Talib for a pass in the end zone and Lloyd drops the pass (granted it would have been a tough catch if he hauled it in). I guess that is a sight I never thought I would see.

    they had a combined what, 3 years as a patriot?

    Less if you count all the games talib missed due to injury/Suspension.

    Not really a bizzare sight for me.

    Semi-OT, but that's a nice new stadium the 49ers play in now

    I don't know. I just felt both were spotlight players for the Pats during their short time here for different reasons. I just thought it was a little bizarre. I guess you and probably others won't agree with me.

    BTW, I know it is only preseason and those two teams face each other in the regular season, but I was rather unimpressed with the Broncos' starting defense. I think bad throws and drops stopped drives for the 49ers' starting offense more than anything the Broncos did.

    I was just reading NFL.com and was a bit surprised to see this:

    I always thought Johnson was a pretty good player with Buffalo and, based on that and what we saw of Lloyd here, that wouldn't be much of a competition.
