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.
