Now thats funny.

Ol' Tom did pretty good against the 49ers. I hope he can keep it up.

I agree, but I would've liked to see more of him. Yet he did fine against the 1st string guys, but also made some mental errors. I was concerned about his health when he left the field at the beginning of the 2nd quarter with apparently a leg injury. But since it hasn't been addressed by the Saints staff, I guess he's alright. I can't wait for the Texans game to see him in action again.

What mental errors did he make? I'd like to re-watch it and see what he did wrong.

good video. Seems like a humble guy with his head in the right place.

Nothing over the top... he made some misreads and over committed to rushing the wrong side on some weak side rushes. He also missed a guaranteed sack 'cos he was going too fast, couldn't adjust to the QB's step up and blew by past him, and he was kicking himself after that... punching his own helmet. I think it's just a matter of adjusting to the NFL gamespeed after CFL.

Bottom line: he has really great speed which on the other hand can get him into trouble, but at the same time can get him out of it. Definitely a great rotation guy for Ellis' 3-tech spot.
