  • There are many of us think it’s deplorable for teams to gut staff or send their lowest-level employees out on unpaid furloughs (even if it might make good business sense) during the lockout? Well, it also makes Steelers LB Larry Foote mad. Said Foote in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette: "I don't know who they're trying to fool. How the heck are they laying people off? I don't get that part. That ain't right right there. That's affecting people's lives; they're not making millions of dollars, many of them are going check to check. It's the first time I actually got mad when I read that the other day. They're going too far. That's ridiculous now. The owners are starting to make themselves look like the big companies that move people outside the country. I'm not talking about the Rooneys, I know what they're cut from."
  • T. Romo and his wife, Candice Crawford (Getty).Also in the above article, Pittsburgh NT Chris Hoke said he thinks 90 percent of the league’s veterans are OK with the lockout. Said Hoke: “I want to be in training camp, but, if we're not going in now, when's the last time I could go work out 3-4 hours in the morning and have the afternoon with my wife? Never."
  • Panthers owner Jerry Richardson to Pro Football Weekly about No. 1 pick Cam Newton missing offseason workouts: “The Panthers are going to be like everybody else and (Newton's) going to be like everybody else, so we all have to adjust and deal with what we have to deal with. I'm not really overly stressed out about it, personally."
