Jets QB Geno Smith said shortly after he was drafted that he expected to lead his team to the playoffs as a rookie, and he may have been right.

The Ravens are seeing some progress from their rookie class.

The Bengals’ defense expects to have a tough time with Ravens RB Ray Rice, even though Rice is having a lousy year.

Said Browns rookie OL Garrett Gilkey of the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin situation, “It’s pretty tragic. I don’t care if you’re a 24-year-old NFL lineman, bullying is the same as if you were a 9-year-old girl. It doesn’t matter how old or how big you are, no one should have to go through that.”

Steelers LB Larry Foote says of the team’s 2-6 start, “This isn’t the way the Steelers play.”

Titans coach Mike Munchak was surprised to learn that his post-game handshake with Rams coach Jeff Fisher is being scrutinized by some who think it shows the two men have a problem with each other.

The Broncos think they can overcome any issues raised by the absence of coach John Fox.

The 9-0 Chiefs know a lot of people don’t think they’re really the best team in the league, but they think they’re preparing to prove it on the field in Denver.

Said Raiders coach Dennis Allen of losing to the Eagles, “We didn’t play well. We’ve got to own that. We’re all responsible for it, everybody, coaches and players. . . . It’s one game, it’s one loss. We’re obviously disappointed in the manner it happened, but it’s still one loss.”

A survey in San Diego suggests most fans approve of the job Chargers coach Mike McCoy is doing.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says a Dallas steakhouse once agreed not to over-charge a rookie when teammates tried to stick him with an insanely expensive bill.

The Giants seem to be turning things around, and the injury to Packers QB Aaron Rodgers may contribute to that turnaround.

The Eagles’ defense doesn’t know exactly what to expect from the Packers’ offense on Sunday, but they’re watching film of Seneca Wallace.

Robert Griffin III has played two straight good games for the first time this season.

Bears RB Matt Forte deserves a lot of credit for Monday night’s win over the Packers.

    Me thinks the team that had a person who is apparently a gun runner responsible for 3 murders should probably keep off the high horse they’ve been riding…

    Just sayin’…

    One Problem with what gee-no said…..he is not doing the leading, his defense is. He has accounted for more turnovers than his defense has.

    ==============================

    Just sayin’ what? That has nothing to do with a locker room problem. Do you think Tom Brady, Vince Wilfork, or Logan Mankins would put up with Incognito’s BS? Hernandez’ actions were completely outside the scope of the team and the locker room. The Patriots are 7-2 at the bye and have no team issues (other than huge injuries on the defensive side). The Dolphins are imploding. I suppose you can’t see a difference.
