Tuesday morning one-liners

The Bills offensive line struggled for much of the game against the Panthers, but they gave QB Ryan Fitzpatrick enough time to find WR Lee Evans on a key 50-yard pass play.

The loss of Will Allen means that the Dolphins will have Vontae Davis and Sean Smith as their starting cornerbacks.

Rookie Patriots S Pat Chung had his best game of the season in London on Sunday.

Jets LB Calvin Pace called the Dolphins’ Wildcat offense “nonsense” after the teams’ first meeting but admitted that the defense needs to stop it to win on Sunday.

Every player on the Ravens participated in Monday’s practice in one way or another.

Said Bengals offensive line coach Paul Alexander of his unit, “To be honest with you, they’re beyond my expectations right now and
unfortunately it’s made me greedy because now I’m shooting for the moon
and they can be even better.”

Browns coach Eric Mangini said he would have liked to have seen more of the Wildcat on Sunday.

Two fumbles in two games hasn’t put RB Rashard Mendenhall at risk of losing carries, according to Steelers coach Mike Tomlin.

Texans coach Gary Kubiak said the change in 49ers quarterbacks was no excuse for the defense’s struggles in the second half.

CB Jerraud Powers credits staying loose for the success of the Colts defense.

Jaguars DT John Henderson has been mentoring the younger defensive linemen at weekly Thursday night meetings.

Although RB Javon Ringer gained 47 yards on seven carries against the Patriots, the Titans don’t expect to see him playing a major role on the offense.

Broncos LB/FB Spencer Larsen returned to practice Monday for the first time since injuring his shoulder in a locker room fall.

Jason Whitlock of the Kansas City Star writes that the controversy over RB Larry Johnson is good for deflecting attention away from Chiefs coach Todd Haley and G.M. Scott Pioli.

Said Raiders DE Richard Seymour of Sunday’s game, “I don’t think we could’ve beat an Oakland high school team.”

The Chargers seem to have hit on the right combination of players to replace injured DT Jamal Williams.

Said Cowboys owner Jerry Jones of LB DeMarcus Ware, “He’s a cornerstone player of this franchise,” Jones said, “and will be for a long time to come.”

Rookie Giants T Will Beatty got mixed reviews for his work as a replacement for the injured Kareem McKenzie.

Although Nathan Vasher played some safety on Sunday, the Bears plan to keep him at cornerback.

The Lions have an easier stretch of schedule coming up, but LB Larry Foote says they can’t take wins for granted.  [Editor's note:  With one win since December 2007, we doubt that they will.]

The Packers will start the practice week with the same offensive line that played on Sunday.

Vikings coach Brad Childress called the NFL to complain about Sunday’s tripping call on TE Jeff Dugan.

Falcons coach Mike Smith blames himself for Sunday’s loss.

The Panthers continue to make too many mistakes on special teams.

The Saints’ Sunday comeback from 21 points down matched the biggest in team history, but several former members of the team said it was the most impressive.

John Romano of the St. Petersburg Times writes that Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris and G.M. Mark Dominik are putting their futures on the line if they go with QB Josh Freeman.

The Cardinals’ confidence in their defense has been growing in recent weeks.

LS Nathan Hodel worked out for the Rams on Monday.

Mark Purdy of the San Jose Mercury News thinks the 49ers have more to worry about than who starts at quarterback.

Seahawks coach Jim Mora said T Walter Jones’s status is “still iffy.”

    Childress calling the NFL to complain about the tripping call that the refs gift wrapped for the STEALers should be it’s own news item.
    That was a travesty that resulted in a 14 point swing.

    Still blaming the refs for your teams shortcomings? That’s sad.

    “The loss of Will Allen means that the Dolphins will have Vontae Davis and Sean Smith as their starting cornerbacks.”
    They won’t get much better on the job training than going up against Andre Johnson and Randy Moss (twice) in the remaining 10 games.

    Memo to Richard Seymour: there aren’t that many High School teams in the NFL playoffs.

    Regarding the item:
    “Said Cowboys owner Jerry Jones of LB DeMarcus Ware, “He’s a cornerstone player of this franchise,” Jones said, “and will be for a long time to come.””
    Jerry Jones couldn’t say this nor be ecstatic by this development if not for Bill parcells — headcoach at the time who had everthing to do with selecting Ware in the 2005 NFL draft.
    Parcells is still providing thrills for Jerry Jones!

    If only it were required that people knew what they were talking about before being allowed to post on the internet, morons like this would only be able to spew their idiocy to those around them.
    Parcells wanted Spears, not Ware. Jerry over-rode Parcells and took Ware then when Spears was still there we took him second. Parcells did not want Ware.
    So get your facts straight, do some reading, and get bent Cittebart.

    You should practice what you preach, kid.
    Speaking as someone who grew up with and still has a great friendship with a “Parcells guy” who has been with Bill since the 1980’s…I can tell you the only name player Jerry Jones ever clashed with Bill on during the draft was in the 2003 draft when Jones wanted Terrance Newman. Because Newman reminded Jones so much of Deion Sanders. While Bill wanted Carolina tackle Jordan Gross and wanted to trade down with either New Orleans or Jacksonville to get him.

    ——————————
    The call resulted in a 6 point swing. I still haven’t seen the video of it, but I’ve seen Vikings fans cry about it and non-Vikings fans on both sides.
    But contrary your opinion, that call did not require Favre to turnover the ball on the next play.

    And if you actually talked to Bill and didn’t just pretend to know him, you wouldn’t write this BS.
    I can talk to my good friend Google and see the article that was written by the reporters in Dallas’ war room the day of that draft.
    You sir, are a name dropping liar.

    I stated clearly I am good friends with one who has worked for Bill since the 1980’s. Reading is fundamental…hooked on phonics is your friend.
    Let’s see these good friend google articles you speak of and who they were written by. This should be fun. LOL.
