  • Although the Falcons have been putting together some wins of late, we hear that running back Warrick Dunn is getting increasingly frustrated with having to share the ball with rookie T.J. Duckett because Dunn believes he has shown that he can be a premier back if he is given a chance.

  • The Raiders' pass rush has been a problem area, with a lot of the pressure having to be provided by linebackers. They also have failed miserably vs. the run over the last month, leading some players to privately begin to question the defensive scheme.

  • Why is Tampa Bay wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson finally looking comfortable in Jon Gruden's offense? We're told Keyshawn has identified which plays he is most comfortable running, and Gruden has gotten familiar with the things that his cocky wideout excels at.
