Titans players seem to have a knack for getting in serious bar fights but not charged with a crime. First Vince Young, and now Kenny Britt. The difference, of course, is Britt’s incident did not happen in May – it happened at 1:45 am Friday morning on the week of a game.
Speaking of the Titans…it’s now been one year since they started 0-6. Since then, they’ve gone 12-4 and, statistically speaking, been one of the most solid teams in all of football.
Chad Ochocinco sent T-shirts to some of the Falcons players this week. So, Roddy White responded with this homemade video. Guerilla trash talk, gotta love it.
The Chiefs will get defensive end Tyson Jackson back Sunday. The No. 3 overall pick of the 2009 draft has been out since Week 1 with a knee injury.
Joey Porter insists he will have double-digit sacks when all is said and done. So far, Arizona’s $5.2 million outside linebacker has one.
The Ravens don’t agree with those who say their offensive is conservative.
Interesting article about how the Bills passed on Haloti Ngata in the 2006 draft. (They took Dante Whitner instead.)
The Panthers have benched right guard Mackenzy Bernadeau. Geoff Schwartz will move from right tackle to Bernadeau’s spot. Stepping in at right tackle will be second-year player Gary Williams, making his first NFL start. Bernadeau understood: “They said I’ve been playing pretty well, but not to the best of my ability. And I know I wasn’t. Little things were holding me back, nothing too crazy,” he said. “Right now we just need a win and we’ve got to make some changes, and that’s one of them.”
Redskins veteran leader Phillip Daniels is traveling to Chicago earlier than the rest of the team so that he can attend his son’s high school football senior night. Daniels left the Bears in 2003 but his family stayed in town. Daniels’ son, DeVaris Daniels, is a defensive back/wide receiver and has committed to Notre Dame.
Thanks to wrist surgery, Nick Barnett is now learning how to be a southpaw.
The Dolphins are making a push for stadium improvements. For the second time in seven months, they’re trying to drum up support for some public funding.
The Bucs are practicing at Raymond James Stadium on Friday because Raheem Morris wants his players to get more familiar with being in their end zone. It’s not a pure metaphor – they’re literally spending more time on that part of the field.
The Wall Street Journal says the numbers suggest the 2-4 San Diego Chargers might be the greatest bad team in NFL history.
Mathias Kiwanuka expects to play against this season, but WHEN, exactly, is unclear.
