“Rex Ryan had been hoping to get after Peyton Manning, blitzing him, beating him up. This time, he beat him with psychological jousting…If Peyton is throwing the ball, they’re excellent. If they’re operating the ball, [they’re] not so great.

“I’m a tiny shocked at the Saints defense due to the fact they did not demonstrate up, in pass coverage [or] run defense. They have been just not the exact same Saints staff, offering up 41 factors. They haven’t done that in four years and they wait for a playoff sport to do that.” – Steve Mariucci on the Saints defensive overall performance in 41-36 reduction to Seattle Saturday

“No, he hasn’t…he hasn’t won a playoff sport but. You’ve acquired Mark Sanchez, [Joe] Flacco, [Matt] Ryan, all these youthful quarterbacks that are second- and 3rd-12 months quarterbacks playing in the playoffs and winning games. Aaron Rodgers has acquired to do that.

“The returns have been great on Aaron Rodgers.

Aaron Rodgers has won games throwing the football.” – Michael Irvin on if Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has met expectations this year

Matt Cassel should full passes.” – Faulk on if the Chiefs will be able to run the ball from the Ravens defense

NFL GameDay Morning Analysts Picks for the Most Hazardous Player:

Michael Irvin: Eagles WR DeSean Jackson

“DeSean Jackson offers me anything. He offers me the ability to consider a quick pass deep, he offers me the capacity to get deep and if you want to, place him again there and let him return a punt and he can get that to the residence.”

Steve Mariucci: Bears WR Devin Hester

“Everytime that he will get the football, he can go the distance.”

Marshall Faulk: Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster

“This child is enjoyable. He helps the Kansas Town Chiefs in the run game and the passing game, not to mention he returns kicks and punts. He will be explosive.”

Warren Sapp: Eagles QB Michael Vick

“We’re conversing about a guy that had 94 yards rushing, 151 yards passing, three touchdowns and this all in much less than 8 minutes.”

Michael Lombardi’s News Reviews:

On the head coaching lookup in Denver…

Starting up in Denver, a lot of folks that I’ve talked to around the league are anxious about John Elway’s inexperience. It’s going to limit the guys that he can bring in. The sizzling name that I am hearing right now is previous Carolina Panthers head coach John Fox. Many folks assumed he would have his probability at many work all around the National Football League, but that’s not the scenario. Fox has narrowed his choices down now to Denver. Rick Dennison is even now concerned in Denver and Dirk Koetter, the previous Boise State, Arizona State [head coach], now offensive coordinator in Jacksonville those are the three names and [in Denver’s head coaching research] that is heading to be the determination it arrives down to.

On John Elway’s recent comments regarding Broncos QB Tim Tebow and his long term in Denver…

The conductor of the ‘Tebow Train,’ Josh McDaniels is not longer [in Denver], so naturally John Elway inherited Tim Tebow and he understands the concerns that it really is going to consider to make Tebow a excellent player. Is a trade a viable possibility? I wouldn’t rule anything out at this time. I believe Elway is mastering about the career that he has and he’s also learning about the Denver Broncos. Knowledge is not in the creating in Denver proper now and that could shell out a price tag as they move ahead.

On the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos draft decisions with the No. one and No. two picks, respectively…

The Panthers have talked about not drafting a quarterback. They are going to place their hope on Jimmy Clausen and then consider the best player accessible, whoever that will be. The Denver Broncos are in the identical placement. This is the important for John Elway – he’s acquired to make the appropriate selection about Tim Tebow and move ahead simply because if he passes a quarterback, he may regret that at the No. 2 [placement]. They want a lot aid all over the board in Denver. They want [assist] defensively, offensively they could go in a whole lot of diverse directions, so I assume the Tebow choice truly compounds the No. two [draft] selection as properly.
