Jaguars WR Laurent Robinson is working to shake the rust off.

If Titans coach Bud Adams thinks things need to change in Tennessee, maybe he should look in the mirror.

Said Broncos DE Elvis Dumervil of the team’s attitude toward QB Peyton Manning, “A guy like that, we feel like if there’s eight minutes left in the game, he could make up 17 points if we get him the ball, or if he has a few seconds and you need a field goal. That’s just the confidence we have in him and our offense. If he has time to run a play, you have a chance.”

Whatever short-term fixes the Chiefs might try, they won’t be enough.

Panthers QB Cam Newton already has more fumbles and more lost fumbles in half a season this year than he had in a full season last year.

The Saints had success blitzing against the Eagles on Monday night, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to keep blitzing for the rest of the season.

    The eagles never lost a game after a bye under coach Reid… we all know how that ended up this year… next up:

    “The Eagles, who are on a four-game losing streak, have never lost five in a row under head coach Andy Reid.”

    Just curious but how does someone like Curry turn out to be such a bust.

    I remember the predraft hype and the pundits were slobbering all over him as a can’t miss pick.

    How does that happen?

    Next up Eagles/Cowboys – one of these train wrecks have to win… expect an epic battle between romo and vick truing to give the game away. I suppose we may wake up the following morning and see them still playing 0-0!
