Tuesday morning one-liners

Jerry Sullivan of the Buffalo News thinks that it is time for the Bills to part ways with WR Roscoe Parrish.

Patriots K Stephen Gostkowski said that he’s already gotten over his missed field goal in Sunday’s loss to the Broncos. 

Ravens RB Ray Rice doesn’t understand why he was called for a chop-block penalty during Sunday’s game.

The Bengals have benefited from QB Carson Palmer’s ability to make plays on the run.

Neither wind nor injuries are being accepted as excuses for a slew of dropped passes by the Browns.

Said Steelers LB LaMarr Woodley of recording his first sack of the season, “If I wasn’t getting any sacks and we won the game, I’d still be happy.  I lost contain a few times and allowed the quarterback
to scramble out, so I’m a little disappointed, but I was able to help
the team out.”

Texans G Mike Brisiel will miss the rest of the season with a foot injury.

Even by his high standards, Colts QB Peyton Manning has gotten off to a hot start.

Gene Frenette of the Florida Times Union writes that Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio is facing a situation reminiscent of the one that sunk the 2008 season.

Said Titans coach Jeff Fisher, “We have to improve as a team and that is what we are working on. Kerry [Collins] is not the reason.  Our football team is the reason
we’re at where we’re at, not the quarterback position.”

While the former AFL teams can wear their throwback uniforms a maximum of four times, the Broncos will only wear theirs the minimum two times this season.

Kolby Smith may get a look at running back once he’s eligible to return from the PUP list as the Chiefs try to jumpstart their running game.

Raiders WR Chaz Schilens may be able to play this Sunday.

Nick Canepa of the San Diego Union-Tribune feels that the defense is the big problem with the Chargers, not coach Norv Turner or G.M. A.J. Smith.

Said Cowboys LB Keith Brooking, “I thought we finished strong.  When it really counted,
when it was on the line in overtime, we finished the game.  We didn’t
play great on the one two-minute drive, but we finished.  I wouldn’t say
we didn’t finish it.”

Giants QB Eli Manning had no setbacks with his injured foot as a result of playing on Sunday.

WR DeSean Jackson professed he was fine with one catch for one yard because the Eagles won their game.

Said Redskins coach Jim Zorn, “Not everything is jelling, but that doesn’t mean we can’t overcome
these things. That’s what we’re aiming to
do
.”

Bears WR Rashied Davis said he has no problems with the prospect of Rush Limbaugh buying the Rams.

Rookie WR Derrick Williams provided a jolt to the Lions kick returns.

Packers T Chad Clifton returned to practice but his status for this week’s game remains uncertain.

Said Vikings TE Visanthe Shiancoe of beating the Rams, “I think it was a trap game, too.  If they hadn’t made
those mistakes on the goal line and all those turnovers, it would have
been a game.”

Falcons RB Ovie Mughelli suffered an unspecified leg injury against the 49ers.

DT Hollis Thomas has been a perfect fit with the Panthers.

Saints TE Jeremy Shockey said that the end of his tenure with the Giants left him with a “bitter taste” in his mouth.

The Buccaneers expect to have C Jeff Faine back in the lineup this season.

Cardinals TE Ben Patrick has returned from his four-game suspension for violating the drug policy.

Rams T Alex Barron repaid coach Steve Spagnuolo’s decision to return him to the starting lineup on Sunday.

A series of concussions has 49ers S Michael Lewis and LB Jeff Ulbrich considering the wisest way to continue their career.

Although he’s the fourth-string left tackle, Seahawks coach Jim Mora said he has confidence in Kyle Williams’s ability to handle the job.

    That bitter taste was beer… while he watched the Super Bowl. Should have gone with Keystone Light.
