Morning take: Warner says no Steelers dynasty
Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North:
- While at the Pro Bowl, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner says the Pittsburgh Steelers are no dynasty after winning their second title in four years.
Morning take: Warner is correct, because it takes more than two rings. But the Steelers will have a chance to earn dynasty status next season.
- Speaking of the Pro Bowl, the NFC won, 30-21, over the AFC team, which included 11 players from the AFC North.
Morning take: As great as the NFL is, its all-star game is not very exciting. Football is not meant to be played at half speed.
- Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle and pending free agent John Thornton thinks the team will have a good 2009 season.
Morning take: Add Thornton to a short list that also includes Bill Cowher.
- Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti wants to win a Super Bowl.
Morning take: Bisciotti's team is not far away, as long as he opens his checkbook and keeps most of his in-house free agents.
