- Bengals coach Marvin Lewis isn’t a big fan of the fact that Tampa Bay is paying Cincinnati draftee Dezmon Briscoe the league minimum of $325,000 when practice squad players usually make about $90,000 a year.
- Nobody seems to be sure what’s going on with Matthew Stafford’s throwing shoulder. Great news for Shaun Hill.
- One Carolina writer is calling for the Panthers to get electrifying (or, at this point, potentially electrifying) rookie Armanti Edwards on the field.
- Not a bad Q and A from Indy Star readers. One asked why we haven’t seen more of Colts first-round rookie Jerry Hughes (this link was actually found because Andy was Googling that very question). Another asked – and it’s shocking this question actually made it into the article – why Josh Scobee was not flagged for removing his helmet after his 59-yard field goal. Real quick: the Hughes answer – he’s coming along slowly and still transitioning to the NFL. The Scobee answer – the game clock had expired (which is why the question about his helmet removal is completely ridiculous).
- Aaron Rodgers was voted as the new Player Rep for the Green Bay Packers. It is unknown how much the quarterback spent on his campaign.
- Beanie Wells is not happy with his role in Arizona. On Monday he vowed to meet with Ken Whisenhunt.
- Ravens waive Prince Miller. Noteworthy because, hey, who knew the Ravens had a guy on the roster named Prince?
- Here’s one way to fight an inevitable blackout. O.J. Atogwe is from Windsor, MI, which makes the Rams at Lions game somewhat of a homecoming for him. Atogwe purchased 60 tickets for the game.
- Mike Shanahan said something nice about Albert Haynesworth. Seriously.
-There is talk about the barfing rookie Joe McKnight being a two-way player for the Jets. That’s a considerable promotion from his current zero-way player role. Apparently, McKnight has been impressive as a scout team corner.
- Ray Edwards is always calling out the NFL, it seems. And, unfortunately for the NFL, Edwards seems to be a pretty smart guy.
- Like the Jets, the Packers also have a get safe home emergency plan. It’s a good bet Braylon Edwards wouldn’t use either service
- A couple of wins have quickly changed the atmosphere in St. Louis
- Willis McGahee is romantically linked to reality TV star Kandi Burruss of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”. We have our own Josh Katzowitz, an Atlanta-area resident as of August, investigating.
