It's Tuesday and we're into the regular season media schedule. Conference calls today at noon -- Belichick followed by the coordinators. Josh McDaniels should be awesome. Matt Patricia will make this guy look like a blabbermouth. I get Billy. Mary gets the coordinators. Quick Slants prep for Thursday's LIVE ACTION EVENT continues. Mayo interview up at the Renaissance this evening. And the fellas are all home with the first day of school coming tomorrow. Sam's going to be a junior, Danny a freshman and Young Tim an eighth-grader. Some stuff . . .
Jason McCourty of the Titans talks a little about his older (by 27 minutes) brother, Devin McCourty of the Patriots. Kamerion Wimbley, a solid pass-rusher who's been with the Browns and Raiders, is now with the Titans. He uses some familiar touchstones as role models: "I think a lot of the way I am is just stuff I learned from guys that were in the league before me that I had the opportunity to play with, guys like Willie McGinest and Richard Seymour." Does Rex Ryan have a media advisor who tells him to say the exact opposite of what should be said? Recommended answer in this instance. "I'm coaching for my job every practice. These are not lifetime appointments." Imagine the time he'd be afforded if he didn't have to spend so much time clarifying earlier remarks. Looking ahead? Why not. The Cardinals went with John Skelton as their starting quarterback. The Patriots have the Cards in Week 2.
