Wednesday morning one-liners

The Bills hope more police on patrol at Ralph Wilson Stadium will make games a more family-friendly atmosphere.

Shortly after OT Jake Long signed with the Rams, the Dolphins re-signed versatile offensive lineman Nate Garner.

Asked how S Adrian Wilson compares to former S Rodney Harrison, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said, “Rodney Harrison’s one of the greatest players ever to play for the New England Patriots, one of the greatest players, I think, to play his position in the National Football League. Pretty high comparison. I’m not saying [Wilson] isn’t, but you’re talking about a great player.”

No one believes Jets coach Rex Ryan when he says there’s a chance Tim Tebow will play for the team this year.

Free agent S Ed Reed isn’t getting the kinds of offers he was hoping for.

Said Bengals coach Marvin Lewis when asked why some fans are down on LB Rey Maualgua, “Because they look at some dumb ass web site that doesn’t have any idea of what football is.” (We don’t think he was talking about PFT.)

The Browns are going to need a new kicker.

Asked if the Steelers are in decline, coach Mike Tomlin said, “That’s March talk. See you at stadiums in the fall.”

Houston is considering tearing down the Astrodome to make room for more parking around Reliant Stadium.

Said Matt Hasselbeck of his new job backing up Andrew Luck in Indianapolis, “I can help strengthen the team by being ready to go, being a guy the team can count on if necessary. The statistics would say your backup quarterback is going to play. Everyone hopes that he doesn’t, but the statistics are that he does. I just wanted to be a part of something special. I wanted to be a part of a team that has a chance to win the Super Bowl.”

The Jaguars are bringing back WR Jordan Shipley.

The Titans hope QB Ryan Fitzpatrick never has to play this year.

Broncos WR Wes Welker was praised by Patriots coach Bill Belichick, who said, “Wes was everything we hoped he’d be when we traded for him.”

Chiefs coach Andy Reid is open — “wide open” — to the idea of trading the first overall pick in the NFL draft.

A car fire that destroyed a BMW at the Raiders’ training facility was believed to be arson.

Chargers coach Mike McCoy says he has no plans to practice with another team during training camp, as the Chargers did at times during Norv Turner’s tenure.

Cowboys RT Doug Free may compete with Jermey Parnell for the starting job this season.

Giants WR Victor Cruz visited two Jersey City schools to encourage kids to work hard.

Eagles G.M. Howie Roseman is focused on building for the future.

After winning the NFC East in 2012, the Redskins are focused on continuity in 2013.

The Bears have no plans to hold training camp at their team facility.

The celebrity diving show with Lions DT Ndamukong Suh has begun.

It’s probably just a matter of time before the Packers make QB Aaron Rodgers the highest paid player in the NFL.

A vote to issue bonds for the Falcons’ new stadium has been delayed.

Former Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski says QB Cam Newton will shed the “running quarterback” label.

Former Saint Steve Gleason is encouraging entrepreneurs to come up with new technology to serve people with disabilities.

Buccaneers chairman Joel Glazer said of the team’s five-year playoff absence, “It rips you apart on the inside. Every fan feels that way.”

Cardinals QB Drew Stanton has a fan in Colts coach Chuck Pagano.

Rams QB Sam Bradford needs to take his leadership to the next level.

Already a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, former 49ers QB Joe Montana is now being inducted into the California Hall of Fame.

The Seahawks don’t seem to have much of a market for trading QB Matt Flynn.

    more than likely Marvin is referring to stripe hype… probably the worst “nfl” website I’ve ever read…. ignorant writers that don’t know anything about football and write opinions as facts…

    where was Rolando McClain during that car fire in Oakland?

  4. tommyhammond says: Mar 20, 2013 8:59 AM

    Or us Bengals fans actually watched him play. However you wanna look at it, Marvin.

    No Vikings morning one-liner?

    Or, we can look at Ray himself on video and form our opinion that way, jackass.

    Marvin Lewis is an idiot! You don’t have to be an expert to know Rey Maualuga couldn’t cover a statue and RB’s blow right by him ala Trent Richardson!

  8. muskyhunter2542 says: Mar 20, 2013 9:19 AM

    Who cares about the Vikings anyway?!?!?

  9. jay62107 says: Mar 20, 2013 10:14 AM

    I don’t think the bengals should have brought Rey Maualuga back but I respect the coaches (Lewis, Zimmer) for having a players back who’s confidence is in the dumps after getting destroyed.

    the tape dont lie marvin. just be honest marvin. its cheaper to sign 1st an 2nd round bust and resign your own below average players. turn on the playoff tape.

  11. j0esixpack says: Mar 20, 2013 10:23 AM

    Love hearing BB’s respect for Welker too!

    As far as Wrecks Ryan, no one believes what he says, period.

  12. allnflfan says: Mar 20, 2013 11:15 AM

    Single funniest sentence ever to appear on this site: “The Titans hope QB Ryan Fitzpatrick never has to play this year.”

  13. drsteller says: Mar 20, 2013 12:40 PM

    Vikings?

  14. joj0420 says: Mar 20, 2013 2:08 PM

    im not sure if its just me or not. but when i look at these oneliners everyday the vikings seem to hardly be in there…

    Marvin is just letting off steam… the same way Bruce Coslet did so in the 90s when Coslet accosted the media by saying, “I’m an NFL Coach, who are you!?!!”, when the media challenged him. Coslet resigned a couple weeks later.

    Marvin is walking a tightrope. He knows the management is destroying the chance for a Superbowl team, willing to take a step or two back to save a few buck because their primary competitors, the Steelers and Ravens, were decimated in free agency.

    The fact is the players, like Dalton, Green and Dunlap will see this and want out of town in 2014. The Bengals’ attempt to sign Shovel McCa$h is being noticed by the players.

    They are back to their basic problem. They are not in it to win it.
