Wednesday morning one-liners

Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick says he hasn’t given any thought to the possibility of the Bills drafting a quarterback.

Dolphins WR Davone Bess prefers not to hear questions about why he’s having his worst season statistically.

The Patriots may need to lock up WR Wes Welker to a long-term deal soon if they want to avoid distractions in 2012.

Jets QB Mark Sanchez expects to have his hands full with the Giants’ defense on Saturday.

The Ravens were thrilled to watch the 49ers beat the Steelers on Monday night.

Bengals WR A.J. Green is closing in on Cris Collinsworth’s franchise record for receiving yards by a rookie.

Said Browns coach Pat Shurmur, “Colt McCoy’s making progress. There’s a lot of steps he has to pass and go through. He went through the treatment process today. He was here, he had treatments, he went to meetings. He won’t be at practice.”

Steelers RB Mewelde Moore has an MCL sprain and will not play against the Rams Saturday.

Texans WR Andre Johnson says he’s healthy enough to play Thursday night, but the team is staying cautious to have him on the field for the playoffs.

The Colts have bad memories of Week 1 against the Texans. (Not to mention Weeks 2-14.)

Jaguars C Brad Meester says he wants to be back in Jacksonville next year.

Titans CB Cortland Finnegan has made a $90,000 donation to charities via his foundation.

Asked about Tim Tebow’s passing stats, Broncos WR Eddie Royal said, “I think stats are for everybody on the outside. People inside this locker room really don’t care what the numbers look like as long as you win. At the end of the day, we all work hard to get wins. We don’t play for stats.”

Chiefs OLB Tamba Hali is singularly focused on rushing the passer.

Raiders QB Jason Campbell has recovered from his broken collarbone sufficiently that he can throw a football about 30 yards.

With his job on the line, Chargers coach Norv Turner has raised his team’s play.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett looks like the safest coach in the NFC East right now.

Saturday’s Giants-Jets game will be the biggest one between the two New York teams since 1988, when Ken O’Brien and Phil Simms were the quarterbacks.

The Eagles’ offense appears to have the Ryan brothers’ number.

Redskins QB Rex Grossman says he’s not thinking about his future beyond the final two games of the season.

Former Bears WR Willie Gault is accused of stock fraud.

The Lions have now sold out Ford Field for 13 consecutive games. “At some point, that’s going to quit being a news story and I think we’re a lot closer to that than we have been,” Lions coach Jim Schwartz said.

After starting the season with a perfect streak, Packers K Mason Crosby has missed three field goals in the last five games.

Vikings great Fran Tarkenton has given a public endorsement to QB Christian Ponder.

Falcons CB Brent Grimes expects to play on Monday night against the Saints.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera says what every coach says about wanting to win late in the season, rather than wanting to get a high draft pick.

Asked if it’s fair to call the Saints dirty, LB Jonathan Vilma said, “Fair or unfair it really doesn’t bother me. We’re an aggressive defense, we’ve always been an aggressive defense. I’d rather be labeled that than [not aggressive]. We don’t do anything intentionally or maliciously. We play hard.”

A big question facing the Buccaneers is whether they can find a better coach if they fire Raheem Morris.

The Cardinals’ surprising late-season surge is getting Arizona fans back on board.

Rams QB Sam Bradford wants to play again this year, but the team may decide it’s not worth further injury.

Aldon Smith is becoming a star for the 49ers.

Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable is getting results.

    Willie Gault should be ashamed of himself and ought to be in jail. Classic pump and dump scheme, I hate a thief.

    That is saying a lot, considering the way the Eagles and Skins have fought back here of late.

    Not sure about Shanahan, but I think whoever misses the playoffs between the Eagles and Giants…their coaches may be on the block.

    I still think Coughlin is already gone…and I think Jerruh actually may know his team can’t keep kicking coaches thru the revolving door in Big D. Snyder may can Shannie this week or sign him to an extension…you never know with that clown.

    They sure didn’t play for “the win” last Sunday, Eddie.

    I hope Grimes plays against the Falcons too. Having their best defensive back helping the Saints out would be a nice boost to our chances.

    Aw you already fixed the typo. Phooey. It was funnier the old way.

    How Campbell worked his way back faster then Mcfadden?

    “Raiders QB Jason Campbell has recovered from his broken collarbone sufficiently that he can throw a football about 30 yards.”

    Sounds like he’s 100% then.

    There sure were a lot of Raider fans on here earlier this year, telling Seattle fans how much Tom Cable sucked.

    Now that Marshawn Lynch has 100+ yards in five of his last seven games, where are they now? Oh, right, they’re fretting over their late-season collapse even as Seattle goes 5-1 over their last six games, based largely on the enormous improvement in the offensive line’s play as the season has gone on.

    Even when the Bears held Lynch to 2.1 ypc, he still had two touchdowns….and the defense had to sell out on the run so badly, it allowed Tavaris Jackson to have a brutally efficient second half, including a couple of deep passes made possible by single-deep coverage.

    Gallery is playing well. Miller hasn’t produced a lot, but he hasn’t been targeted a lot. That will likely change next year. Enjoy Aaron Curry, Raider fans…we’ll be hoping our team can use the draft pick to get another Richard Sherman, KJ Wright, or Kam Chancellor….all current starters, playing well, drafted in the fourth or fifth rounds.

    Go jets!

    “Enjoy Aaron Curry, Raider fans”

    Curry is doing very well for us Troll Boy, and I could care less what ex-Raiders are doing on your irrelevant team. Come back and rag on Raider fans when your team wins something for a change.

    “A big question facing the Buccaneers is whether they can find a better coach if they fire Raheem Morris.”

    What a joke.
    If that guy still has the job next season and that is the excuse I could well be done with the team until MAJOR changes are made (new owners).
    You could call any random phone number in the Tampa area and chances are very good that you would get someone better suited to be an NFL head coach.
    He may well be the most useless and worthless head coach I’ve had the misfortune of seeing, he might be a nice guy but that doesn’t help him be any good at his job.

    @raiders757:

    Just let it be known that at the price you guys got Curry from us is far better than the #4 overall pick we spent to draft him, that was Tim Ruskell’s fault, and in the end it worked to your advantage, if you want to even call it that.

    BUT, also let it be known that (and I don’t want to rag on Aaron at all, he’s an upstanding guy and I like him as a person) he is not that good of a PLAYER. He’s average at best, with intermittent flashes of what his attributes suggest he should be consistently. And that right there sums him up totally.

    He never should have been picked that high in the draft to begin with–at least not by us–because his play doesn’t justify it, but again that doesn’t have anything to do with Raider nation, that was Tim Ruskell’s fault, who coincidentally, also has been run outta Seattle, THANK GOD!

    So if you believe an avg of 3-4 tackles a game is playing very well (yes, I know he rec a fumble for a TD last week, which doesn’t require that much skill at all to pick a ball and fall forwrad into the endzone; he should be able to do that!) then, sure, he is playing LIGHTS OUT for Raider Nation.

    But I would rather ask: How is that Carson Palmer experiment going? Let me guess, he’s playing “very well” also? LOL!

    Being that the season’s just about over and we prob both won’t make it into the playoffs, let’s just see how we both do in this upcoming draft.

    Oh wait….you guys practically won’t even have one!

    Hahahaha!

    Gotta luv you Raiders!

    Citing the NFL’s and the media’s love affair with Drew Brees and the Saints…it’s perfectly acceptable that the Saints play “aggressive” defense. The Lions ? DIRTY
