Oakland's low-key, feel good training camp isn't feeling so good after the last few days.

Just one day after Raiders players were chanting in support of their fighting coach, we learned that a more important member of the organization than defensive assistant Randy Hanson has a broken bone to worry about.

Chaz Schilens, the team's best receiver, broke the fifth metatarsal in his left foot early Tuesday. The timeframe of his return is unclear, although Schilens admitted that it would take a "miracle" for him to be ready for Week One.

Schilens' injury is similar on the surface to the one suffered by Rams receiver Donnie Avery, who was expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

A seventh-round pick in 2008, Schilens arguably was enjoying the best training camp of any Raider. His performance in the team's preseason game was eye-opening, showing a great mix of toughness, speed, and terrific hands.

With Schilens out, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Johnnie Lee Higgins look like the team's starters. Javon Walker is expected to come off the active/PUP list Monday after missing the entire offseason following knee surgery.
Too bad for them, he looked good vs Dullas.

Manning to Gonzalez is one of the most under-appreciated combo's in the league.

Curtis Painter has looked good for the Colts so far.

He is a QB I would have liked to have seen Denver draft in the 5th or 6th round.

He actually looked pretty damn good kicking the PAT and had a decent kickoff.

Do you think it possible to get the NFL to get rid of Brown. After watching the Hard Knocks there got to be a way.

Cutler needs to stand behind his words
Posted by Mike Florio on August 21, 2009 7:58 AM ET

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has been doing a lot of clarifying lately.

But in both examples involving unwise comments from Cutler followed by clarifications, there wasn't really any clarifying going on. Instead, Cutler seemed to simply be trying to say that he didn't say what he had said.

It started with his comparisons between Bears fans and Broncos fans. He openly dissed the denizens of Denver -- and then he simply pretended that he didn't.

More recently, Cutler called out receiver Devin Hester (justifiably, we might add) for failing to do enough to break up an interception during the team's preseason opener at Buffalo.

But then, after the poo hit the propeller, Cutler was at it again, clarifying his remarks.

"Things get taken out of context and blown out of proportion all the time," Cutler recently said, per Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune. "He has done a great job. He's a No. 1 receiver and he has done a heck of a job on the field and in the classroom.

"He's a go-down-the-field-and-get-the-ball [receiver]," Cutler added. "It was a bad ball. I didn't give him a chance. I have to throw it down there and let him run under it."

Jay, you're a quarterback. Act like one. Say what you mean and then stand behind it, even if it becomes a point of contention.

Any other approach justifies Brian Urlacher's opinions.

James Davis (rookie RB from Clemson) had a nice game for the Browns tonight.

81 yard TD run. 12 carries for 116 yards and a TD on the night.

I thought he might be a 6th round steal.

Maybe we can pick him up after he gets released. No way Jordan makes the team. The guy is a joke.

League looks to curb binge drinking

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...inge-drinking/

Posted by Mike Florio on August 23, 2009 10:49 PM ET

At the same time the NFL is selling a portable ping pong table that anyone with an ounce of common sense (or eight ounces of suds) realizes is actually a beer pong table, the league also hopes to restrict the extent to which the thing will actually be used on game day.

Per Michael McCarthy of USA Today, the NFL wants teams to take steps to limit access to booze.

According to McCarthy, the league has recommended that the 32 teams (and 31 stadiums in which they play) limit tailgating to 3.5 hours before games, and to do a better job of monitoring and enforcing rules against excessive alcohol consumption in stadium parking areas.

(Maybe they should just insert a tracking chip in each of those officially licensed ping pong tables.)

McCarthy reports that the league also wants teams to limit customers to no more than two 20-ounce beers, or one 24-ounce beer, per transaction. Teams also will print the following message on most cups of beer: "Fans don't let fans drive drunk."

We approve the efforts, but we've been to enough games to know that the NFL has a better chance of overtaking soccer as the top sport outside the U.S. than it does eradicating the drunks from American football stadiums.

But, hey, if one less drunken yay-hoo is on the highway after a game, the efforts are worth every second and cent devoted to them.

Wilfork, Kaczur present conflicting situations for the Pats
Posted by Mike Florio on August 24, 2009 12:30 AM ET

The Patriots supposedly haven't extended the contract of defensive tackle Vince Wilfork due to uncertainty with the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the league and the union.

Wilfork doesn't buy it.

"Not at all, because there's 31 other teams out there, and a lot of them are making moves," Wilfork said Sunday, per Ian Rapaport of the Boston Herald. "They're in the same situation we're in. I understand what he's saying, but at the same token, it's not stopping the other teams from making their moves, and what they have to do. Trust me, I understand where they're coming from. We have a lot of guys on this team that are going to be up. Pretty good players. I know that's pretty tough for them, but at the same time, the labor situation, it's all over the NFL, so, it is what it is. Like I said, it doesn't stop other teams from making moves."

Elsewhere in the locker room, one of Wilfork's teammates was singing a different tune, and in doing so confirming Wilfork's position that business can still be transacted.

Offensive tackle Nick Kaczur said that he's one of the guys as to whom the Patriots will be "making their moves."


"I'm obviously excited because this is one of the best, if not the best, organization in football, the way you get treated from Mr. Kraft to everyone here," Kaczur said, according to Mike Reiss of the Boston Globe.

"I think that speaks well for what they do here, that the players like it here and like the way things go that they want to stay," Kaczur said "It's really exciting to know that they would like to continue working with you."

Kaczur, like Wilfork, is signed through the 2009 season. Kaczur is due to earn a base salary of $2.27 million. Wilfork is scheduled to earn $2.2 million.

That said, Wilfork is likely expecting a lot more money going forward than Kaczur, especially since Wilfork plays the same position that resulted in a $41 million guaranteed payday for Albert Haynesworth.
