You weren’t really expecting Patriots coach Bill Belichick to talk about his contract, were you?

Jets coach Rex Ryan said RG Willie Colon’s bump of a ref was “unintentional,” though we’ll see if that matters when the fine rolls in.

The Ravens need to tighten up their defense of opposing TEs.

The Bengals did a good job of keeping Andy Dalton clean last week.

Browns WR Greg Little is trying to get on the same page as QB Brandon Weeden (maybe the problem is Weeden drives the speed limit).

The Steelers are aware the Bengals are going to target their patchwork offensive line.

Texans WR DeVier Posey is working his way back from his torn Achilles.

It’s been a while since the Colts turned the ball over (and if they cough it up Sunday, it’s not my fault).

  1. Vikings WR Jerome Simpson has declared himself “the highest jumper in the league, hands down.”


    If Jerome Simpson says he’s the “highest” anything, I’m going to believe him.

  2. I know there are some good receiver groups in NFL but the talent each receiver brings from top to bottom is special for Seattle. That’s without Percy Harvin who will only make it better. Steven Williams needs to show up in the regular season like he does in practice & pre-season because 6’5 receiver that can fly on a go route is a nice threat. Doug Baldwin looks like the man. Sidney Rice is a tad overpaid.

  3. The Dolphins “speed D” will be the next trend in NFL defenses. It’s not only highly effective against prolific passing offenses, but can also contain the read option. However, for other teams to emulate it they will have to have not a couple, but 4-5 hybrids that car rush the passer, handle O-linemen, and cover backs and receivers (i.e. Jordan, Misi, Vernon, Wake).
