Thursday morning one-liners

Jerry Sullivan of the Buffalo News thinks the Bills should give QB Brian Brohm a shot in the final three games of the season.

After a slew of fumbles against the Jaguars, the Dolphins are stressing ball security in practice this week.

Said Patriots DE Ty Warren of his status for this Sunday, “I’m not making any predictions.  I never give up any information that will help another team; we’ll leave it at that.”

The Jets signed T Dan Gay to their practice squad.

Former Ravens T Jonathan Ogden thinks his old team should look into swapping LT Jared Gaither with RT Michael Oher in the next couple of years.

The departure of WR Maurice Purify could move Jerome Simpson into the lineup this weekend.

DE Corey Williams made a strong bid for more playing time on the Browns defensive line in their victory against the Steelers.

Steelers S Ryan Clark and CB Ike Taylor each took the local media to task for the way they’re covering they team this season.

The Texans re-signed LS Bryan Pittman because the team didn’t want too much on TE Joel Dressen’s plate.

Bob Kravitz of the Indianapolis Star writes that the Colts are being smart by not committing themselves to playing particular players for particular amounts of time.

The Jaguars hope that Thursday night’s crowd propels them to a strong offseason of ticket sales.

Titans WR Nate Washington cautioned QB Vince Young about trying to come back too quickly from a hamstring injury.

The Broncos will have a largely untested corps of safeties available against the Raiders this weekend.

Dropped passes have plagued all of the Chiefs wide receivers this season.   

Said Raiders QB Bruce Gradkowski, a restricted free agent after the season, “I love the idea of the Silver
and Black. We’ve got a great coaching
staff and, definitely, great players that can put a run together.  And
I’m not just talking about an OK season, I’m talking about playoff
time, making a run at playoffs.  That’s in my mind, that’s in my future,
I’d love to be here to do that.”

Chargers K Nate Kaeding’s streak of 15 consecutive made field goals has made him the most accurate kicker in NFL history.

Jean-Jacques Taylor of the Dallas Morning News thinks the way Cowboys coach Wade Phillips has handled K Nick Folk is indicative of his failings as a head coach.

DE Justin Tuck believes the Giants are capable of surprising teams in the playoffs if they get there.

The Eagles held TE Brent Celek out of practice with a back injury but Celek said he’s good to go for Sunday’s game.

After many injuries and poor performances, the Redskins have cobbled together an offensive line that’s shown improvement in recent weeks.

Bears T Orlando Pace said that his recent move to the bench won’t necessarily push him toward retirement when the season wraps up. 

Newly signed CB/KR Brian Witherspoon could see action immediately with the Lions.

Packers S Nick Collins congratulated LB Brandon Chillar on his new contract, but said he has no idea how that affects his quest for a deal.

Said Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, “Of course I would love to lead the league in
rushing
, but it’s not about leading the league in rushing and you’re
sitting at home during the playoffs.”

Falcons TE Justin Peelle passed all the mandated tests to get back on the field this week following a concussion he suffered earlier this month.  

Panthers CB Captain Munnerlyn hopes that he doesn’t get star struck when he lines up against Vikings QB Brett Favre, his childhood idol, this weekend.

The Saints have asked the NFL for an exemption to allow a Baton Rouge television station to air Saturday night’s game on free TV.

Buccaneers C Jeff Faine thinks coach Raheem Morris should return for a second season.   

The Cardinals signed K Mike Nugent and placed S Matt Ware on injured reserve.

Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo wasn’t willing to discuss G Richie Incognito’s departure beyond a brief statement.

49ers QB Alex Smith was able to use his cadence to take advantage of the Cardinals defensive line on Monday night.

Said Seahawks coach Jim Mora, “If you’re going to be a good offensive lineman … you’ve got to be a
little bit of a dirtbag. Not as a person. But on the football field.
Because in the pit where all that stuff goes down, man, if you don’t
have some frickin’ toughness, you’re going to fail, you know?”

    Seriously, Gradkowski’s attitude is fabulous, he’s actually looking FORWARD to playing with the Raiders! I don’t know who’s putting what in dude’s oatmeal, but this is the attitude that inspires other players.

    This should be bigger news. Why isn’t there more ruckus about it being played nationwide?

    Wow. Defending champs and they are likely to end with a losing record. Media seems to be pretty fair.
    Bears T Orlando Pace said that his recent move to the bench won’t necessarily push him toward retirement when the season wraps up.

    He’ll probably go somewhere else and do much better. That’s the story of my Bears this decade.
    Said Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, “Of course I would love to lead the league in rushing, but it’s not about leading the league in rushing and you’re sitting at home during the playoffs.”

    Funny. He’ll get to do both this year.

    Justin Tuck isn’t lying I’d be suprised if they make the Playoffs !

    Sounds like he’s accepted the fact that he’s not going to meet his lofty preseason goals.

    And is it just me or does Zygi Wilf look a little like a shaggy-haired Ron Jeremy in that picture. That smile is a little over the top.
