Saturday morning one-liners

Everyone except the Jets is talking about Rex Ryan’s notorious tattoo.

The Pats have added QB Mike Kafka to their offseason roster.

The Dolphins didn’t make it to the postseason, but some have received postseason awards from the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

The Bills built huge expectations on defense in 2012, and completely failed to meet them.

Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell reflects on facing the franchise with which he spent 10 years.

For Bengals QB Andy Dalton, a playoff game in his hometown is becoming a tradition.

If the Browns hire Chip Kelly, the roster may need yet another makeover.

More and more people are realizing that the Steelers need a good running back.

Titans DE Kamerion Wimbley, with only six sacks in 2012, says he fell short of his expectations.

Colts rookie RB Vick Ballard has gone from survival to, um, thrival?

Jaguars assistant coaches have been given permission to look elsewhere for work.

Texans QB Matt Schaub is ready for his playoff debut.  (His performance in big games this year would suggest otherwise.)

The Broncos’ running backs have a “next man up” attitude.

The Chargers will reduce or not increase prices on season tickets for 45,000 seats.

The deal between the Chiefs and coach Andy Reid covers five years, which likely gives him at least three or four years to turn things around.

When the Raiders coach one of the Senior Bowl rosters, there’s a chance they’ll actually be coaching a better team than the one they coached all year.

The Cowboys appeared in four of the six most-viewed games of the season.  (That and a Super Bowl championship will get you a Lombardi Trophy.)

As the Redskins uncharacteristically have thrived, owner Daniel Snyder uncharacteristically has remained in the background.

Giants G.M. Jerry Reese thinks that the team should have given WR Hakeem Nicks more rest when he was dealing with early-season injuries.

The image of Eagles LB Chuck Bednarik taunting a fallen Frank Gifford has been picked as one of the top sports photos of all time.

Life’s been good so far to Vikings K Blair Walsh.

The Bears have brought back speedy WR Brittan Golden.

The Lions were 1-6 against NFC teams that made it to the playoffs.

Since winning the Super Bowl less than two years ago, the Packers have replaced 14 of 22 starters.

First-year Falcons don’t want to hear about past-year playoff failures.

The good news for Buccaneers rookie RB Doug MartinHe’s a finalist for the Pepsi Max Rookie of the Year Award.  The bad news?  So are Russell Wilson, Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Alfred Morris.

The Saints have added WR Preston Parker and DE Jay Richardson.

Despite getting a head start by firing G.M. Marty Hurney during the season, the Panthers won’t start interviewing G.M. candidates until Monday.

49ers TE Garrett Celek, the brother of Eagles TE Brent Celek, was the only undrafted rookie to make the team, and he participated in more snaps than six draft picks.

Returning from a four-game suspension won’t keep Seahawks CB Brandon Browner from starting on Sunday.

The notoriously parsimonious Cardinals are surely hoping Ken Whisenhunt gets a head-coaching job in this cycle.

Rams offensive line coach Paul Boudreau says he got the most out of a “bunch of misfit toys” in St. Louis this year.

    Another solid image choice by PFT. I’m sure you couldn’t pass that one up.

    i will take the worse NFL team (the jags)vs the best college roster you could assemble (which means allowing about 50% under class men to play) , and spot you 25 points, and still win the bet.

    Technically, it’s eight rings. You get one for your conference title if you don’t win the Super Bowl. They just don’t make a big deal of it. But it is a championship. And it does mean something.

    That being said, you better hope hockey starts up, because the Penguins are the only hope you’ll have for quite awhile.

    Now we’re going to be hearing about what a genius Belichick is for adding Mike Kafka, only the sort of move an absolute genius makes, meanwhile they ignore the Chad Johnson, and Albert Haynseworth signings and his continued inabilities to find top quality players to really fix that defense. Also lost is the 8 years since the “dynasty” has won a championship.

    That shot against the Raiders was cold. Sadly probably not far off though

    8 1 Pray tell what you are basing your prediction on..tea leaves, dropped bones, visions….or ….I got it just simple hate/ envy.

    49ers Vs. Broncos Superbowl; 49ers remain only undefeated team in Super Bowl appearances.

    giants and steelers both earned a bye. Bye, bye!

    —————————————-

    This is an idiotic line. Raiders were 8-8 for two seasons prior to this year and had a major upgrade at QB for this season.

    Coaching was the problem in Oakland this year, more than the players.

    True but Jerry takes those revenues and gets some comfort.
