Bills LB Arthur Moats doesn’t know if his future is at outside or inside linebacker, but he’s preparing to play both.

Dolphins coach Tony Sparano says RB Reggie Bush “is starting to get a better feel for what we’re trying to do running the football.”

In news that should come as a surprise to no one, here’s a story explaining that Patriots WR Wes Welker studies film of the defensive backs who will be covering him.

Folks in New York are calling on Jets QB Mark Sanchez to step up his play.

The Ravens have bad memories about last year’s second half against the Texans.

Said Bengals DT Domata Peko of Cincinnati’s back-to-back come-from-behind wins, “I think our old team would have folded, but this is a new squad and we have a lot of heart on this team.”

Browns coach Pat Shurmur says he needs to give more playing time to TE Evan Moore.

Says Steelers coach Mike Tomlin of preparing for the Jaguars, “Probably no one in football means more to their team than Maurice Jones-Drew with the things that he’s capable of doing. He’s a very physical runner, got great vision, power and speed. He’s not small, he’s just short. He’s got built-in leverage.”

Texans owner Bob McNair wants to play in the U.K., but he doesn’t want to give up a home game to do it.

The Colts think their biggest problem is failing to close the deal when they have a lead.

Jaguars DE Jeremy Mincey is drawing praise for his play.

Titans QB Matt Hasselbeck is looking forward to relaxing during the bye week.

Broncos MLB Joe Mays says forget about the quarterback situation: Where Denver needs to get better is on defense, where they have to stop missing tackles.

Chiefs WR Jon Baldwin will likely be ready to play on October 23 at Oakland.

John Madden says now is a time to mourn Al Davis, not to speculate about the future of the Raiders.

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews made impression on his teammates by playing through pain.

The radio voice of the Cowboys is urging fans not to have any expectations for the Cowboys.

The Giants’ schedule is only getting tougher.

The Eagles need some leadership at the linebacker position.

Redskins RB Tim Hightower says of playing the Eagles, “They’re 1-4, we’re 3-1. We’re on top in the division and we control that. It’s a must-win game for us and a must-win game for them. I know it’s a different set of scenarios when you look at their record, but it’s a must-win game.”

Bears G.M. Jerry Angelo has failed in his job to build a team around QB Jay Cutler.

The Lions have two players who need to be monitored after suffering head injuries.

Despite playing in the NFL’s smallest market, the Packers remain a huge TV draw.

Says Vikings DE Brian Robison, “I think there are a lot of plays I’ve looked at on film that I felt like I could’ve made. I think I’ve probably left, maybe, four or five sacks out there.”

The Falcons need to get a consistent running game.

Panthers RB Mike Goodson is a man without a role in the offense.

Saints QB Drew Brees was brilliant on third down on Sunday.

Tampa Bay has picked up some depth at linebacker.

The Cardinals are focusing on getting better in third-down and two-minute situations.

The former Packers on the Rams are looking forward to playing against their old teammates.

    So nobody has asked Tom Cable about his feelings toward Al and how he’s taking the news? I mean, ESPN asked Kiffin . plus Cable said he grew up a Raiders fan, just like Norv Turner, hue Jackson have all commented when they sat next to Al as they were being introduced as Coaches

    Thanks for the link to the Chicago Trib piece. Angelo is just discovering that a team has to have a coherent offense to win? And that as meaning that defenses no longer win championships? No wonder the team is a wreck.

    And the Trib’s solution is to trade Cutler because he doesn’t fit into Martz’s system. Unbelievable.

    Jerry Angelo is the worst GM. He gave up way too much for Cutler and then did nothing to help him in return. How many years has it been that the Bears needed a WR and OL? He’s tied for 23rd in pro bowlers drafted/ufa since 1996. Knox is the only guy since 2007. Matt Forte seems to be the only one with a shot since then.

    Wait! How the heck did this four-liner get in here?…. Someone at PFT is slipping…

    From Halas to Angelo, Lovie and Martz. Breathtaking. I naturally detest the Bears but their fans deserve a lot better than the crap they’ve got now.

    “Broncos MLB Joe Mays says forget about the quarterback situation: Where Denver needs to get better is on defense, where they have to stop missing tackles”

    Joe Mays speaks the obvious truth. When your defense is 30th in the league and looks like they’d miss tackles on stationary tackling dummies, which quarterback you start should take a back seat.

    Dolphins coach Tony Sparano says RB Reggie Bush “is starting to get a better feel for what we’re trying to do running the football.”

    Translation: We’re trying to get him to finally figure out that running 8 yards to get -2 yards isn’t a good thing.

  8. pigskinswag says: Oct 12, 2011 10:15 AM

    “Bears G.M. Jerry Angelo has failed in his job to build a team around QB Jay Cutler.”

    UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE MILLENIUM

    Jerry Angelo = Matt Millen 2.0

  9. pigskinswag says: Oct 12, 2011 10:16 AM

    “The Eagles need some leadership at the linebacker position.”

    RUNNER UP for UNDERSTATEMENT of the MILLENIUM.

    These guys are just horrible. Even Reggie Bush could run between the tackles on them.

    The Eagles need some linebackers at the linebacker position.

  11. facebook.com/joesimmonscomic AKA Slow Joe (Bucs fan) says: Oct 12, 2011 11:14 AM

    ” Dolphins coach Tony Sparano says RB Reggie Bush “is starting to get a better feel for what we’re trying to do running the football.””

    ***********

    Like, for example, gaining actual rushing yards.

    “Dolphins coach Tony Sparano says RB Reggie Bush “is starting to get a better feel for what we’re trying to do running the football”

    Keep Daniel Thomas healthy?

    >Dolphins coach Tony Sparano says RB Reggie Bush “is starting to get a better feel for what we’re trying to do running the football.”

    Yeah, move it forward.
