Saturday morning one-liners

With three prime-time games for the Dolphins, the league office apparently thinks their free-agency money was well spent.

Could the fact that the Jets host Tampa to start the season throw a wrench into efforts to trade CB Darrelle Revis to the Bucs?

Patriots WR Julian Edelman and actor Bradley Cooper visited Boston Marathon bombing victim Jeff Bauman Jr., who lose both legs in the attack.

Bills QB Kevin Kolb recently talked about the team’s new up-tempo offense.  (Which likely means he’ll be writing extra fast on the clipboard.)

Bengals LB James Harrison wanted to stay in the AFC North.

Harrison’s old team, the Steelers, will see him twice in prime time, barring a Week 15 flex.

Orioles CF Adam Jones has purchased the home previously owned by former Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron.

The investigation regarding the company run by Browns owner Jimmy Haslam could take years.

The Jaguars’ new uniforms reportedly will have a military theme.

Titans QB Jake Locker will be signing autographs in Bowling Green, Kentucky on April 29.

New Colts DT Ricky Jean Francois will never forget “that last drive, that last play” of Super Bowl XLVII, which his former team lost.

Texans coach Gary Kubiak sees high-profile games as a reward for success.

The Broncos will spend $35 million to upgrade their stadium and training facilities.

Chargers coach Mike McCoy thinks QB Philip Rivers is “going to have a great season.”

New Chiefs G.M. John Dorsey has dreamed of the opportunity to run a draft.

Raiders RB Darren McFadden says there have been no discussions regarding a possible extension of his contract.

Former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell chimes in on the Eagles’ dilemma with the fourth overall pick in the draft.

The Cowboys have re-signed S Danny McCray, a restricted free agent.

Giants G.M. Jerry Reese isn’t sure whether WR Victor Cruz will be on the field come Week One.

Redskins QB Robert Griffin III thinks that it will be “much easier” to run the offense this year.

Lions LB Stephen Tulloch sums up the team’s approach to 2013:  You’re on board or you’re not on board.  (Which is considerably better than last year’s theme:  You’re in jail or you’re not in jail.)

New Bears LT Jermon Bushrodwants to get a feel for what kind of person [QB Jay Cutler] is.”  (J’Marcus Webb may have some input.)

A California businessman has been charged with defrauding “dozens” of doctors and dentists; the ill-gotten money was used to purchase, among other things, Packers stock.

The Vikings are joining Tony Dungy and his wife, Lauren, for presentation of the inaugural Tony Dungy “Uncommon” Award that recognizes “Uncommon Leadership Through Character and Faith.”

The Falcons have picked an architect to design their new stadium.  (It possibly will take a little longer than the new addition to the Guggenheim.)

The Panthers are unlikely to get any of the top tackles, unless they trade up from No. 14.

Should the Saints, who don’t have a second-round pick, trade down from No. 15?

The Buccaneers could target a quarterback in the middle rounds of the draft.

The St. Louis CVC has tweaked its budget to permit payment to the Rams of more than $2 million in legal fees.

Peter King and members of the Cardinals organization helped raise money for the Pat Tillman Foundation on Friday night.

Will 49ers CB Chris Culliver’s latest comments get him run out of San Francisco?

Official Seahawks license plates will soon be a reality in Washington.

    “Titans QB Jake Locker will be signing autographs in Bowling Green, Kentucky on April 29.”

    If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a thousand times – its “Jake Locker Autographs and Puppet Show”, NOT “Puppet Show and Jake Locker Autographs”!

    J’marcus Webb is a lazy turd pothead. Jay expects him to handle himself as a pro and give a crap when he sucks. He did neither.

    Oftentimes, it seemed jay was the only one on offense who cared. Wouldn’t you be frustrated?

    Nah, lets just hate on cutler because its what ESPN tells us to do.

    Bills QB Kevin Kolb recently talked about the team’s new up-tempo offense. (Which likely means he’ll be writing extra fast on the clipboard.)

    Florio: What are you going to do if Kolb actually does become the starter and he ends up playing very well? Everyone writes Kolb off right away, but I wouldn’t be shocked to see him become somewhat successful playing behind one of the better Offensive lines in the league. Fitzpatrick was rarely sacked last season and the only change to the line is Andy Levitre’s spot at Guard. If Buffalo doesn’t get the exact QB that they wanted in the draft, expect Kolb to start this year, and with his positive attitude, I can see success.

    “A California businessman has been charged with defrauding “dozens” of doctors and dentists; the ill-gotten money was used to purchase, among other things, Packers stock.”
    ——————————–

    And a couple thousand people in Wisconsin have probably never broken a law – donate to charity, probably also purchased packers stock … won’t hear about them, even thou reporting about them has as much ado with Packer related news as reporting about some sleazy guy in California.

    Speaking professionally, I have to make a correction: dentists ARE doctors. That’s why we call them “doctor”. Dentists go to just as much school as physicians and must be just as strenuously credentialed. Even some of the residencies are similar. Thank you.

    Sure thing, med school drop out.

    “New Bears LT Jermon Bushrod ‘wants to get a feel for what kind of person [QB Jay Cutler] is.’ (J’Marcus Webb may have some input.)”

    J’Marcus Webb’s input as a turnstile is why Jermon Bushrod became the new Bears LT…No further input from him is needed.

    Dear discosucks2005; I am a fully credentialed, practicing dentist. I have helped over 10,000 people improve their health and I have been paid for it. Handsomely. What value do you bring to the world? I employ people and thereby improve their lives. I speak to elementary school classes and provide free samples of floss and toothbrushes. People whom know me like me. Do you get thanked every day? Your general attitude suggests not.

    Tell us here on this public forum that you bring as much value to your community as I do. I dare you.

    @discosucks2005:

    Are you always such a miserable person?
