Monday morning one-liners

WR Naaman Roosevelt stepped up for the Bills after Donald Jones left with an injury.

The play of Dolphins T Marc Colombo this season hasn’t given the impression that there’s much left in his tank.

A well-designed play sprung Patriots WR Wes Welker for a 73-yard gain.

WR Jeremy Kerley saw more time than Derrick Mason when the Jets went with three wide receivers.

Ravens DT Terrence Cody has shown much improvement over last season.

Brandon Tate’s punt returns helped set the Bengals up offensively in their win over the Jaguars.

Browns WR Greg Little hopes to be the team’s leading playmaker as the season moves on.

RB Jonathan Dwyer had the seventh-longest run in Steelers history on his way to 111 rushing yards overall.

Texans TE Joel Dreessen was a bright spot in Sunday’s loss.

Said Colts DE Robert Mathis, “Stopping the run, stopping the pass. It’s indescribable. I wish I could hit the re-set button. I don’t think we got any passing grades in Football 101. This is by far the angriest I’ve been after a game. By far.”

The end was ugly, but Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert seemed to make some strides on Sunday.

Special teams blunders hurt the Titans more than once against the Steelers.

Broncos RB Willis McGahee topped 100 yards for the third time in the last four games.

WR Steve Breaston played a bigger role in the Chiefs offense.

Raiders K Sebastian Janikowski tied an NFL record with three field goals of 50 yards or more in Sunday’s win.

Said Chargers coach Norv Turner, “You don’t want to be in a situation where you feel like you’ve controlled a game and you let them back in. But if you win the game, and you use that to get better, I don’t know you can ask for more than that.”

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick is looking forward to getting back in the lineup this week.

G Chris Snee was taken to the hospital with a concussion he suffered in the Giants loss.

The Eagles missed 13 tackles by one count, with 11 of them coming in the secondary.

Are the Redskins for real or are they a mirage?

Bears CB Tim Jennings promises to be physical with Lions receivers on Monday night.

The return of the Lions to Monday Night Football fits in with a hot time in Detroit sports.

Packers WR James Jones made the most of his opportunities on Sunday night.

Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune writes that Vikings QB Donovan McNabb isn’t off the hook because of Sunday’s win.

The Falcons offense came crashing to a halt after two good drives to start the game.

Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams ran for more than 100 yards for the first time in almost two years.

Jimmy Graham became the first tight end in Saints history with three-straight 100-yard receiving days.

Gary Shelton of the St. Petersburg Times calls Sunday’s 48-3 Buccaneers loss as bad as any in franchise history.

The Cardinals’ road losing streak is now at 10 games.

Said Rams offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, “The focus has gotta always be on playing our best in November and December. And if we can get to that point where we’re doing that, you never know. So we’ve got to continue to push and fight.”

49ers CB Carlos Rogers never had three interceptions in a season before coming to San Francisco, but he’s got three in his last three games.

Seahawks DT Anthony Hargrove, a Brooklyn native, made a big play when he dropped Giants RB D.J. Ware for a safety in the third quarter.

    “The focus has gotta always be on playing our best in November and December. And if we can get to that point where we’re doing that, you never know. So we’ve got to continue to push and fight.”

    Why does Josh McDaniels still have a job in pro football?

    ^ in hopes that one of those bill belichick monsters had bitten him at some point and that once the full moon comes around he’ll morph into one.

    Which is just goofy…. Bill Belichicks aren’t contagious.

    “The play of Dolphins T Marc Colombo this season hasn’t given the impression that there’s much left in his tank.”

    The Cowboys, who had issues protecting the quarterback last season, decided to let this guy go. That should have told the Dolphins something right there. But then again, they traded for Reggie Bush thinking he would be a feature back.

    Must win for the Jets on Monday against the Fins. After that it’s the Chargers, Bills and Patriots.

    All of their losses thus far are conference losses to potential playoff teams. Not good. I think they, at a minimum, need to go 3-1 in their next 4

    Let’s not give Belichick too much credit. Without a HOF QB in Tom Brady, he’d be the same coach who crashed and burned with the Browns.

    and seabass has never been to the pro bowl….the nfl and their bias against the raiders is such a joke.

    Ray Guy, Jim Plunkett, Ken Stabler, Tim Brown, Cliff Branch all should be in Canton.

    How is Ray Guy not in there? That as big as a joke as Seabass never playing in a pro bowl

    I thought Carlos Rogers couldn’t catch Skins fans…he is giving us pick sixes!!
