Quarterback Tom Brady made a bit of a splash on WEEI radio Monday morning with this little sound byte about Hard Knocks: "I hate the Jets, so I refuse to support that show. ... I'm sure it's great TV. I'm glad people are liking it. But that's just something that I have no interest in watching. I'd love to say a lot of mean things, but I'd rather not do that, either." Regardless of whether or not it was a playful statement, The Jets seem to be getting under a lot of teams' skin. Bart Scott thinks that is productive because it makes the opposition play outside of themselves.
Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne had a good preseason outing against the Jacksonville Jaguars going 11-for-14 for 151 yards and two touchdowns. Tight end Anthony Fasano was the recipient of both scores… Chad Pennington is expected to be Henne's backup this season with Tyler Thigpen as a third quarterback. Pat White will be a stretch to make the final roster as a quarterback… Miami receiver Brandon Marshall declined to speak to the media after the Dolphins' preseason game Saturday, saying he needed to see a doctor. Marshall is reportedly fine…and so is the media.
Trent Edwards will enter the Bills' season as the starting signal-caller, but quarterback Brian Brohm may be giving Ryan Fitzpatrick a shove to the No. 3 spot. Brohm went 14-21 for 125 yards against the Colts second defense, avoiding turnovers and playing a conservative game. Edwards completed 5-of-8 passes for 93 yards and a touchdown in the rehearsal… Running back C.J. Spiller, the ninth-overall pick in 2010, is making a case for the starting tailback position, as he had a nice 31-yard touchdown run against the Colts.
