A few preseason observations

The Panthers' Steve Smith starts a fight in the locker room, and the team decides to punish itself. Ever heard of cutting off your nose to spite your face? PS, the Chargers and Bears say, "Thanks!"

Javon Walker may not actually play for the Raiders. There's been a lot of speculation about why. He had a tough summer - robbed in Vegas, friend died in his arms - but I'd bet a significant sum of money that what really happened is Raiders' training camp. After practicing with the team for a few weeks, he thought: "Play 16 games with these bozos, or give the $11 million signing bonus back? Hm - I don't really need another $11 million that badly."

And, in Eagles news, Shawn Andrews is still MIA. Anybody know what's going on? I've heard depression, family issues, contract issues, and weight. Any truth to any of them?
