Wednesday morning one-liners

Bills LB Andra Davis has been selected as the team’s Ed Block Courage Award winner.

Now that the Dolphins look like they won’t Suck for Luck, the question is raised in Miami: Should they be planning for Manning?

Asked about a report that he made a profane comment to his son after the Jets game, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said, “I don’t remember it that way. I don’t think we’re here to talk about that. If you want to talk about the game, great.”

Jets QB Mark Sanchez took the blame for a dumb timeout that gave the Patriots extra time late in the first half on Sunday.

Asked if he’s thinking about coaching against his brother on Thanksgiving, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said, “No. This week is Cincinnati. Next week will be whoever we play next week, whenever we play them. But this week is Cincinnati. Absolutely.”

The Bengals aren’t accustomed to getting outplayed in the red zone the way they were by the Steelers.

Does it seem like the Browns are always 3-6 after nine games? That’s their record now, and their record after nine games in 2000, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2010.

Steelers OLB LaMarr Woodley is cautiously optimistic that he’ll play on November 27 against the Chiefs, after the team’s bye week.

Texans WR Bryant Johnson explains what QB Matt Leinart needs to do: “Just try not to overdo it. The game plan is just right there for him. He just has to go out there and start the car and start driving.”

Colts owner Jim Irsay confirmed that the team won’t change ticket prices for the 2012 season. (How about refunds to the fans stuck with this season’s tickets?)

Jaguars RB Deji Karim has been mentored by Maurice Jones-Drew, and he says he wants to be better than Jones-Drew some day.

Thanks in large part to the quarterback situations of the other three teams in the AFC South, the Titans think they have a good chance of winning the division.

Says Broncos RB Lance Ball of finally finding a place where he can be a major contributor to the offense, “I’ve been a journeyman. A lot of those situations were about roster spots. But I always believed in myself. I have a love for the game. I feel I have the talent to play in the league. I just took a road less traveled to get here.”

Former Chiefs QB Tyler Thigpen says he can relate to what Tyler Palko will encounter in his first start.

Carson Palmer is taking control of the Raiders’ offense.

Chargers WR Vincent Brown is impressing his teammates.

Cowboys RB Felix Jones says he’s concerned with getting healthy, not with whether he’s lost his starting job to DeMarco Murray.

It may be time for the Giants to extend the contract of Tom Coughlin.

Eagles TE Brent Celek says that “It’s easy when you have a record of 3-6 to go your separate way. We need to come together and play for each other, the city, and the organization.”

The Redskins are wondering which Cowboys team will show up on Sunday.

With Bears WR Earl Bennett going off, the other Bears receivers aren’t getting many balls thrown their way.

The Lions insist that QB Matthew Stafford can play through his broken finger, but a lot of outside observers beg to differ.

In Milwaukee, the Monday night Vikings-Packers game had the highest local rating since 1997.

Finishing the season 4-12 might be optimistic for the Vikings.

Falcons DE Ray Edwards isn’t living up to his big contract.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera says every player on the team should know he’s being evaluated over the final seven weeks of the season.

Malcolm Jenkins deserves much of the credit for the Saints’ fourth-and-1 stop against the Falcons.

There’s more talk in Tampa that QB Josh Freeman is struggling because of a thumb injury.

Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt appears to be struggling with the decision between Kevin Kolb and John Skelton.

Rams WR Brandon Lloyd is making an impact.

Colin Kaepernick says he’s learning on the job as the 49ers’ backup quarterback.

The Seahawks say they’re playing better because the offensive line is coming together.
