Caldwell Not Worried About Stafford Focusing In On Megatron
According to CBS Detroit's Ashley Dunkak, head coach Jim Caldwell does not buy the narrative that quarterback Matthew Stafford has been forcing the ball to superstar wide receiver Calvin Johnson.

Caldwell said the fact Stafford has targeted Johnson 24 times, significantly more than any other Lion, just reflects the fact that teams want to get their best weapons as many opportunities as possible.

To illustrate his point, Caldwell noted the Gre ...

Newton Likely To Be Dealing With Ankle, Rib Soreness All Season
Cam Newton underwent ankle surgery in March and suffered a fractured rib in August. He still is getting regular treatment on both injuries and there is no end in sight to that process.

“Probably sometime in February, in all honesty,” said head coach Ron Rivera when asked when Newton will stop getting treatment, per the Charlotte Observer. “Because it’s going to go with the position and the way he plays. He plays hard and he plays where he cuts it loose. It’s going to be like that. ...

Brady Locked Onto To Edelman, Gronk; Will He Look Elsewhere?
As Associated Press sports writer Howard Ulman understated, "Tom Brady is very comfortable throwing to Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski.

"The other Patriots he sends out on pass patterns? Not so much. ..."

Of Brady's 44 completions this season, 20 have gone to Edelman and Gronkowski. Of his 78 passes, 32 were aimed at them.

This despite the fact Gronk hasn't been on the field as much as fantasy owners ...

Locker Needs More In-Game Consistency... And Some Help
As Associated Press sports writer Teresa M. Walker notes, Jake Locker is coming off a game in which Tennessee's offense couldn't have been much worse in the first half, and he deserves much of the blame.

His coach and teammates think Locker is taking too much of the criticism.

Ken Whisenhunt said that Locker missed on a couple throws but the Titans coach has seen other NFL quarterbacks turn in ugly performances. The Titans managed only 68 yards total ...

Can Bernard And Hill Continue At Their Current Pace?
According to Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson, rookie running back Jeremy Hill is finding his stride.

Can he keep it up?

Giovani Bernard is on pace for 328 carries and rookie running back Hill is ticketed for 152 for a total of 480 and it would be hard to believe that pace is going to stand.

Hobson went on to note that total would dwarf the most runs ever by two Bengals backs, 405 by Corey Dillon (315) and Brandon Bennett (90) in 2000 and th ...

Rookie QB Carr The Best Thing Oakland Has Going For Them
As a rookie quarterback seeking his first NFL win against Bill Belichick's New England Patriots, Derek Carr has too much to worry about himself to focus on questions about his coach's job security.

But as Associated Press sports writer Josh Dubow notes, if the Raiders don't start winning soon, those questions about Dennis Allen's job will only get louder.

Instead of showing the progress that owner Mark Davis had hoped to see this season in ...

Patterson Not Begging For The Ball... But He Needs It
Following up on a previous item. ... Cordarrelle Patterson took a toss out of the backfield in Week 1 against the St. Louis Rams, ran around right end and didn't stop until he had run 67 yards into the end zone.

As St. Paul Pioneer Press staffer Dan Mizutani suggested, it was a thrilling run, but not a shock.

Patterson, a first-round pick in 2013, quickly became the NFL's best kick returner as a rookie. Against the Ra ...

Murray Has Had Rams' Number In Recent Past; Can He Do It Again?
As ESPN.com's Todd Archer suggested, "Maybe there’s something about the St. Louis Rams helmet DeMarco Murray likes. Or the uniform. Or maybe it was the way the sun was shining through the doors at AT&T Stadium in the two games Murray has played against the Rams. ..."

Whatever it was, it's merits the attention of fantasy owners.

In case you missed it, in the two above-mentioned games, Murray has picked up 428 yards on 51 carries. On Oct. 23, 2011, he ran for a fra ...
