Bengals WR A.J. Green continues to lead fan voting for the Pro Bowl at his position, and is sixth overall.

Browns QB Brandon Weeden described his own concussion as “mild,” and said he was “just a little foggy” (Somebody should tell him his backup isn’t Colin Kaepernick).

Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego takes a closer look at the offensive dysfunction of the Chargers.

  1. The Bills made a mistake (how usual) by not retaining Perry Fewell as HC, at least to give him a shot at reviving the team. He had the Bills playing well at the end of the season when he was the interim HC, and now, of course, is a rising star as DC of the Giants. He will almost certainly get a HC gig eventually.

  2. In the two games Kiwi has been used at DE the Giants have dominated on defense. Fewell should realize this. The destroyed both San Fran and Green Bay with Kiwi playing on the dline.

  3. Shame that the Tampa media sucks so much that they don’t even know about the team they cover.

    To quote the clowns that cover Tampa
    “The Bucs have never won 4 consectutive games”
    2009 weeks 15 & 16
    2010 weeks 2, 5 & 8
    all 5 were wins, so how is winning a 4th straight a franchise record? It’s not like this is a long time ago so it got missed while going back through the years it was within the past 4 seasons. It’s kind of like when they were saying that Doug Martin needed a certain ammount of yardage to set an all time record for a 3 game stretch when he had already beaten the mark they claimed during the previous 3 weeks.

    I really wish the national media would quit using Roy & Ira as a source of (incorrect) information, they are jokes.

  4. Its about time Greg McElroy was active. Thank goodness for the “bruised ribs” story that will keep the media from crucifying McElroy if he comes in ahead of Timmy.
