Steelers safety Troy Polamalu missed practice for a third consecutive day because of a strained right Achilles’ tendon and a sore calf and is likely to miss Sunday’s game against the Jets.
While the short work week is a tough challenge, there is some prestige in being selected to play on Thanksgiving.
Terrell Owens wants to show Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis that he’s no slouch. The Bengals receiver bristled Tuesday at the mention of Revis, who is expected to cover him when the teams play on Thanksgiving night.
Chad Ochocinco toned it down a bit for a change. The chatty Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver is never at a loss for words, but he couldn’t bring himself to stir things up the way he usually does.
Terrell Owens calls his team terrible. And nobody on the Cincinnati Bengals would disagree with the sentiment.
Bryan Thomas was in no mood to let loose and celebrate. Neither was the rest of the New York Jets defense.
Michael Vick, DeSean Jackson and the rest of Philadelphia’s offense are doing things that even Donovan McNabb, Terrell Owens and Co. didn’t do for the 2004 NFC champion Eagles.
Nothing is straightforward about Donovan McNabb these days. It turns out the $40 million he is supposed to be guaranteed in his new contract could turn out to be a mere $3.5 million.
It’s perilous for a New York sportswriter to babble about a hated player who played for two hated teams. But one question needs to be answered.
At the end of a night full of foibles, tricks and missed chances, the Pittsburgh Steelers turned to their one constant to finish it off. That unyielding defense came through again.
In 1998, the Minnesota Vikings drafted Randy Moss with one eye open. The team gambled on his talent and almost reached the Super Bowl. The first time, that is. The second act was the act of a desperate coach leading his lost team.
Fans booed. Flashes went off. Tim Tebow had arrived in the NFL. With a much better haircut and a bruising touchdown, no less.
Even though he received a four-year contract extension before the 2008 season, he was released by the Cowboys at the end of the season amid headlines that he feuded with quarterback Tony Romo and offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.
TV Magic or TV Tragedy…This is how the guys wrapped up the conversation they had this morning regarding their appearance on Iron Chef (which will air on the Food Network on the very near future).
