>>george: do not have to the san mateo bridge is that is your normal commute or if you are planning on taking it this morning, it is a hot spot. take a look at the traffic. it was first reported as a stalled near mid span. it turned into an accident. it has to be pushed off of the bridge. there is still debris in the lanes. and that is going to be several miles of bumper to bumper stock and go traffic. the drive times are still climbing, more than twice the normal commute time which would be 13-14 minutes. it is not reported as a 28
minute drive. you will waist house of the trip as across the san mateo bridge. also notice, there is a vehicle on the side of the road. this is the compound of fact that happens all on the bay bridge when there is a big stack up. people can get stalled if they do not have a lot of fuel. but then, we end up with more problems on the bridge. this accounts for a world of slowing here. we will see as the morning wears on how long it takes for the back of to recover. looking at other traffic, a quick check on the bay bridge westbound. when the advisory, the likelihood that the meter and light has slow the traffic. here is a quick check on the traffic maps shows a pretty
good ride for the mid peninsula. all of the traffic is being held up on highway 92 for the san mateo bridge ride. the south the freeways are starting to get heavy, especially heading towards saratoga on 85 northbound and 17 getting heavy headed to downtown san jose as well in the northbound direction. let's get a check on the water with james. >>james: here is a live look for mt. tam looking back toward san francisco. here is it look as central tower. here is the look of the weather for today.

>>darya: brett favre and other players are starting to come out about these hits across. ha >>gary: it is really ugly. it comes from the standpoint of these players, i watched a lot of players being interviewed last night. it is almost as if they shrug their shoulders and say, it is a part of the game, but the bad part is the trickle-down effect. when you get to the professional level, whatever these guys want to do, they know how the game is played, etc.. it did start trickling down to college, high school and pop warner, it is a bad example. fit is a bad example for the
league. one day, someone is not going to get up. there is going to be a death on the field. someone might be paralyzed. ha >>darya: now that they see when this was and what was going on, they look back and they say october 22nd come to thousand six, peyton manning and his neck, that is when it's starting. they are going back asking, was there a hit then ? >>gary: this is one of those underlying deals. supposedly, attorneys are lining up to represent these players. these are multibillion- dollar businesses. football has never been hotter. the players ride with it. they understand and sympathize with one another. as i do not think the fans
care one way or another. >>darya: the sans do not get with the injuries mean. >>gary: my feeling is, the fans, too bad, they did not like to see anyone get hurt, but if you want to be a pro player, that is what you go through. >>darya: the roles of the nfl are against this kind of thing. they really have to come down hard, at least on the saints. >>gary: i think that it is sick. you do not want to live under a team or your coach. when you get older and have lived a little bit, you look around and say, i am not going to do that or else, you make your own judgment. if your 25, maybe you are
just a hangar on 18, you could be cut at any minute, you will do with these guys say. when you put ruthlessness in the hands of people with authority, it is a bad mix. >>darya: we will see what they did, we do not know about punishments. it is still early. >>darya: we're back with more in a couple of minutes every day, an average of 5,000 people
switch from cascade to finish dishwasher detergent. that's about 150,000 a month - over 2 million people so far. with finish quantum you get incredibly clean, sparkling dishes without having to rinse them first. now see for yourself why millions have switched to finish. join the finish revolution. and for two years in a row, finish quantum was rated #1 by a leading consumer publication.
