Westbrook, Reid, and the Niners: Tampering nonsense

New, comments

I was reading a "links" piece over at Niners Nation (the SB Nation blog for the... uh... 49ers), and two of their items were Eagles-related:

So we all heard that Brian Westbrook doesn't want to be a 49er next season, but were the Philadelphia Eagles tampering with him? I'm thinking the Niners should at least look into things, just to cover their bases. (SacBee.com)

I've also seen this tampering nonsense at PFT and a few other places.  Apparently, the revelation that Brian Westbrook occasionally speaks with Andy Reid on the phone is now potentially grounds for a tampering investigation.  Andy Reid and Brian Westbrook only worked together for 8 years.  How dare they develop a friendship during that time and occasionally speak with one another on the phone.

Also found this somewhat humerous:

There may be competition for the 49ers in the Kevin Kolb sweepstakes, which is fantastic in my mind, because ... well, you guys know why. So I will now use my amazing rhetoric and skills as a writer to convey unto you my position and illustrate it in such a way as to convince you: Kolb blows. (NBCBayArea.com)

Methinks this guy is an "internet scout," because really... As a Niners fan, has he really seen Kevin Kolb's body of work?  Write about what's in your wheelhouse; don't guess how good a player may be by looking up his stats on espn.
