LB Tedy Bruschi explains to Boston Herald columnist Tony Massarotti why Brett Favre should stay retired. "When you say you're going to hang it up, that's got to be your (final) decision," Bruschi said.
K Stephen Gostkowski said his lack of long field-goal attempts last year was because the offense was so good it rarely left him too far away.
Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reporter Sal Maiorana writes WR Lee Evans was staunchly behind J.P. Losman in last year's QB controversy, but Trent Edwards has won him over. Good thing because Edwards will be the one throwing him the ball.
Miami Herald columnist Greg Cote writes about RB Ricky Williams' self-reclamation project. Not many outside South Florida have addressed what, at the moment, seems a tired tale, but Williams' return will become the team's biggest storyline of '08.
At a time when most everybody else has been wishy-washy about the Jets' quarterback situation, Chad Pennington is refreshingly blunt. New York Times columnist William C. Rhoden is convinced Pennington should be the starter.
