Wednesday morning one-liners

Bills coach Perry Fewell was full of praise for the play of DT Spencer Johnson.

The Dolphins will find out over the next six weeks if they need to go outside the organization find a long-term replacement for NT Jason Ferguson.

The Patriots haven’t been lighting up the scoreboard in the second half this season. 

Mark Cannizzaro of the New York Post thinks it is okay to knock Jets QB Mark Sanchez’s play but not his work ethic.

WR Derrick Mason’s up and down season has mimicked the Ravens’ up and down season.

It was a long trip to the starting lineup for Bengals DT Jonathan Fanene, but a worthwhile one.

The Browns have three of their draft picks in the starting lineup and three of them barely play.

Said Steelers coach Mike Tomlin on QB Dennis Dixon playing, “No question we would have to do some things to help him. If he plays in
this game and plays extensively in this game, we have to do things
schematically.”

Texans coach Gary Kubiak isn’t second-guessing his play calls at the end of the loss to the Titans.

Colts LB Clint Session’s play has improved noticeably in recent weeks.

Said Jaguars TE Ernest Wilford of his time with the Dolphins, “I guess I just wasn’t one of their guys that fit the scheme for them.
I’m just glad to be back home. I’m glad to have an opportunity to play
this game. I’m just thankful.”

Titans coach Jeff Fisher said CB Nick Harper was “solid” in his return from injury.

Broncos players held a meeting without coaches on Tuesday.

LB Jovan Belcher is one of many unheralded Chiefs who helped lead the team to victory on Sunday.

Raiders P Shane Lechler meets the Cowboys video board on Thursday.

Bill Williamson of ESPN.com likes the T Jon Runyan signing for the Chargers.

Jimmy Johnson thinks the Cowboys are right on the verge of being one of the top teams in the NFC.

The Giants defense ranks last in the NFL in red zone efficiency.

Through 10 games this year, the Eagles have lost 28 games to injury or suspension on defense; In 2008, they didn’t lose any during the first 10 games.

Said Redskins T Chris Samuels of the chance his career is over, “Some people are even amazed at how I’m going around smiling and joking
– my normal self. But football is something I’ve made a good living
doing. It’s my job. I enjoy it, I love it – but it’s not who I am. It’s
just a job. Whichever decision I make, it’s gonna be fine.”

The Bears signed TE Kevin Brock to their practice squad.

RB Aaron Brown responded well to being benched by the Lions during their loss to the Seahawks.

Packers CB Jarrett Bush might get a chance to redeem himself in the coming weeks.

Vikings rookie WR Percy Harvin is earning praise for his skills at reading defenses.

Said Falcons WR Roddy White, “We’ve got to win, man. That’s the biggest thing for us right now. We can’t have no setbacks. We’ve got to go out there and win six games. If we win six games we’ll control our own destiny.”

The Panthers placed LB Landon Johnson on injured reserve and signed LB Jordan Senn to take his spot on the roster.

Saints coach Sean Payton denied that there’s any extra pressure because the Patriots are this week’s opponent.

John Romano of the St. Petersburg Times calls demoting defensive coordinator Jim Bates a desperate move by Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris.

The Cardinals brought LB Monty Beisel back to the team and released TE Dominique Byrd.

Said Rams DT Clifton Ryan, “We’ve got to be more consistent for 60 minutes. We can’t do it for two
or three plays here, and then take a play off. Do it for another four,
five plays, then take a play off there. That’s not good defense.”

Kevin Lynch of the San Francisco Chronicle thinks 49ers coach Mike Singletary is right to be wary of going too heavily with a passing attack.  

The time has come to overhaul the Seahawks offensive line.

    I appreciate Chris Samuels’ attitude. I wish there were more guys like him. He’s been a huge asset to the franchise, and whatever he decides to do he’ll be great at it.

    Of all the injuries this season, this could prove to be the one that breaks us. I hope a solution presents itself.

    “Jimmy Johnson thinks the Cowboys are right on the verge of being one of the top teams in the NFC. ”
    He should have consulted with Coach Frylock before making that statement.

    “Raiders P Shane Lechler meets the Cowboys video board on Thursday. ”
    49 punts, nobody has come close to hitting it. Lechler won’t hit it either, he’s too good of a punter.

    I love how people say “90 feet, that is nothing for Lechler”. True, but you have to kick 90 feet STRAIGHT up. That never happens except in warmups and Rookie d-bags trying to make a name for themselves.
    Can he? Sure. Will he? No

    “Through 10 games this year, the Eagles have lost 28 games”
    THey’ve lost more games than they played? :P

    Don’t people complain when the Pats score in the 2nd half?

  8. LighTsouT says: Nov 25, 2009 2:29 PM

    @wydok

    “Raiders P Shane Lechler meets the Cowboys video board on Thursday. ”
    It’s been a loooooooong season for you scoreboard conspiracy nuts, hasn’t it?
    Looks like the NFL set a 90 feet minimum and Jerry followed the rules for a reason, since no one has hit it, ya think?

    “Through 10 games this year, the Eagles have lost 28 games to injury or suspension on defense; In 2008, they didn’t lose any during the first 10 games.”
