Another #Rams note: 2nd-round pick Isaiah Pead has lost No. 2 RB job to Daryl Richardson. Richardson is legit & may keep that job all year.
"This night could create some bad blood. Sitting on a 28-point cushion early in the fourth quarter, the Ravens kept throwing in Flacco's final series. Think the Bengals noticed?"
"We talk all the time," said Gino Gradkowski, a fourth-round pick in April’s draft. "He’s a big shoulder for me to lean on. It helps me out a lot to have him. He’s always helping me out and telling me what to expect and how to handle myself on and off the field. He’s been a great leader by example. He handles himself well, and it’s great to have a role model like that."
"There is no me without a Marvin Lewis. He was the first one who grabbed me at a very young aged and asked me what I wanted to do," Ray Lewis said this week. "He educated me. He educated me not just on how to make plays, but he educated me on the business side of it and understanding how to conduct myself and all these different things. So I’ve always looked at Marvin as a father figure. So the impact he had on my life was great."
"Art (Modell) was a significant owner in the NFL. My father had deep differences with him when they were together in Cleveland, yet on the other hand, the fact of their relationship contributed to a great rivalry between the Bengals and the old Browns. There was some real excitement to those early games. Art won praise for his work at the league level, particularly with the development of the NFL's relationship with network television, and we extend our sympathy to all who were close to him."
A.J. Green is a special talent but when he comes across the middle he has to see us--if you miss he can hit a home run.
Knee is holding up just fine! Made it back to the practice fields this week and it safe to say that the knee feels good! Thanks for all the prayers! 58 is back!
"Football. I was in Cincinnati to play football. Just the team," he said. "A lot of those guys are young guys, early-year guys on defense and offense as well. I’ve watched them grow and have seen them in their rookie years, seen them in their second years. Now, a lot of them are in their third or fourth years. They’ve progressed a lot."
