|The Bell Tolls for Mark Brunell.

Pre-season games have one actual benefit - watching for individual failures.
New Orleans 45, Oakland 7 doesn't really mean anything ... well, maybe that the Oakland defense is in trouble on all strings. But what did strike my interest ... in the middle of a banner New Orleans offensive display ... one where almost everyone including Joey Harrington went off for big success ....
Mark Brunell racked up a line of 13 attempts, 4 completions, 30.8 completion rate, 86 passing yards, 0 TDs, 2 INTs, and a 15.7 QB rating.
First reaction ... yeah, that Mark Brunell. Still active ... if you can call it 'active' with a straight face.
I realize that Mark was once a better QB than Joey Harrington. Today, however, I'm not even sure that he's a better QB than his wife.
UPDATE: The Saints cut Harrington on September 5th. They kept Brunell! Unbelievable! Brunell doesn't register a pulse!
