NFL fantasy football: Chris Johnson re-run isn’t entertaining

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson isn’t losing his starting job, so says head coach Mike Munchak. Marcas Grant writes that the fact that Munchak even had to mention that is an unpleasant reminder of Johnson’s 2011 season.

Ken Whisenhunt: Cardinals expect Kevin Kolb to play Friday

Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said unless there is a setback, QB Kevin Kolb will play in Friday’s preseason game.

My story: Why the Cardinals have the right idea on their QB battle (unlike some teams)

The Cardinals have a quarterback competition… which you may have read about. Kevin Kolb, the high-priced veteran, vs. John Skelton, the interesting unknown. And after spending Tuesday in St. Joseph, Mo., with them and the Chiefs, I was impressed with how they are handling it. The competition is real. No favorites. No care about pedigree or how much a guy costs or where he went to school. That’s how coach Ken Whisenhunt is doing it, a direct contrast to how the Browns handled their QB situation. “The way we do it, we try to be as fair as we can with whatever player we’re having competition with,” Whisenhunt said. “So, that means you try to get them equal reps in […]

Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt says of his QB controversy: “We’ll see one of the guys separate himself”

Last week, we spoke with Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt about his quarterback battle during training camp. It was something he sounded like he was really looking forward to. While there was a post containing some comments from him, I wanted to do a separate one on the QB situation… since it’s so interesting. It’s Kevin Kolb vs. John Skelton. How will it break down? “Well, I think you evaluate a lot of things,” Whisenhunt told me. “How they handle it, what’s going on in the spring, OTAs and mini-camp. It’s hard when you don’t have the pads on, you don’t have the live action to get a true evaluation. Coming into camp, the evaluations are going to heat up. We’ll see […]

Three and out: Shonn Greene will get more carries

Happy Friday everybody! I know it was only a four-day week, but somehow it made me more ready for the weekend. That said, let’s hit the ground running here. In the Greene: Sometimes I just can’t help myself with some guys and I draft them when I probably shouldn’t. That said, I’m excited about Shonn Greene this year for the Jets. Offensive coordinator Tony Sparano told reporters Greene was going to surpass 253 attempt this season. Which was already a lot. When you think about how Reggie Bush rebounded with Sparano in Miami, I’m excited about Greene this year. And with quarterbacks like Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow, you can understand why the Jets will run the ball a lot […]
