- Baltimore Ravens receiver Derrick Mason believes critics are “very, very scared” of quarterback Joe Flacco.
Morning take: Based on comments from LaMarr Woodley and Dhani Jones, I think it’s the opposite. Flacco has to beat his critics more consistently, starting this year, to earn their respect.
- Is Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis a one-year wonder?
Morning take: Barring injury, Hillis should have another solidÂ season behind a pretty good offensive line. But being on the “Madden NFL 12” coverÂ should make Browns fans nervous.
- Should Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison be suspended for his comments towards NFL commissionner Roger Goodell?
Morning take: You can’t rule out the possibility. But usually players are allowed to speak their minds in the NFL without missing games. A fineÂ seems more likely.
- Cedric Benson of the Cincinnati Bengals is one of the league’s least elusive running backs, according to Pro Football Focus.
Morning take: That’s not Benson’s game. The Bengals want the pending free agent back because of his straight-ahead style, which fits their team.
