Parting shots in Tennessee
Meeting of the mouths? Chad Johnson was a little subdued -- and funny -- Wednesday. The Bengals wide receiver is still recovering from a bone-jarring, helmet-removing hit during Sunday's game against the Browns. He said he can't turn his head to the left, he can't look to the right, he can't raise his right shoulder and he can't eat McDonald's because he's on a liquid diet due to a sore jaw. "It's the first time I got hit in six years," Johnson said. "Somebody's got to pay." So Johnson called out Steelers linebacker Joey Porter, whom he called the mouth of the team. He wants Porter to meet him in the middle of the field Sunday when the two teams meet.
Favre committed to Green Bay: Brett Favre cleared up any rumors Wednesday about wanting to be traded to a better team. He doesn't want to go anywhere. Asked if he would go to another team in a trade, Favre said he didn't think he would. With the trading deadline coming up in mid-October, the Packers have no interest in dealing him. Favre is happy to be a Packer even though the team isn't very good. End of story.
