Owning an NFL franchise is a license to print money. Usually gobs of money. But, according to Forbes Magazine, one of the 32 NFL teams couldn't figure out how to run the printing press. Besides being the worst team of the 21st century in terms of record, the Detroit Lions also managed the neat trick of losing money in 2010, the magazine said.   Amazing stat In his two starts, a win over the Dolphins and a loss to the Lions, Denver quarterback Tim Tebow has been in the shotgun formation an average of 40 times a game.

Steve McLendon said he knows how to bring down Michael Vick. The Steelers nose tackle sacked Vick with one hand during the preseason, and he is not surprised that the Eagles quarterback has been sacked 11 times and committed nine turnovers. "People have learned how to rush him," said McLendon, a preseason star who is splitting time with starter Casey Hampton. "Vick is trying to stay in the pocket. He's trying to be the quarterback he's not. That's the thing, he's trying to be the quarterback he's not, and I hope he keeps being that quarterback.

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley predicts the New England Patriots and Cincinnati Bengals will "lay down" for their virtually meaningless games Sunday because they don't want the Super Bowl champion Steelers to make the playoffs. The Steelers (8-7) would reach the postseason for the fifth time in six seasons if they beat Miami, the Patriots defeat Houston, and the Bengals beat the New York Jets. There are other combinations that would get them in, but all include either a New England or Cincinnati victory.

PLAXICO BURRESS missed his second straight practice with the New York Jets because of an ankle injury. The wide receiver was expected to practice for the first time Thursday once the labor agreement was ratified. But he rolled his left ankle while running routes with Santonio Holmes on Wednesday. He was in uniform for yesterday's afternoon practice, as he was Thursday, but mostly as a sideline spectator. "I know he's itching to go and things, but we're going to be smart," coach Rex Ryan said.

PITTSBURGH - Call it addition by omission. As Steelers coach Mike Tomlin rattled off the status of injured players on Tuesday, three names were noticeably absent: Rashard Mendenhall, James Harrison and Troy Polamalu. It wasn't an oversight by Tomlin. It's just that he doesn't think three of his team's most vital contributors are hurt anymore. Barring a setback, Tomlin expects all three to be in uniform on Sunday when the Steelers (1-2) host the Eagles (3-1). "I think that's a safe assessment," Tomlin said.

PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Steelers no longer have a Tom Brady problem. And that may be a problem for the rest of the NFL. Old, slow and over? Not quite. Ben Roethlisberger picked apart the NFL's worst defense and the Steelers rattled the nearly unflappable Brady in a 25-17 victory on Sunday, putting an end to the two-time MVP's decade of dominance over the defending AFC champions. Brady came in 6-1 all-time against the Steelers, putting up eye-popping numbers in the process.

DALLAS - The ties between the Steelers and the Packers go way beyond Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy's Pittsburgh youth. Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers got a huge career boost from his 3 years as the Steelers' defensive coordinator, 1992-94, which led directly to Capers getting his first head coaching opportunity, with expansion Carolina in 1995. Current Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau first got his current job when Capers left it - LeBeau had been Capers' secondary coach.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. - It was an interesting offseason for Joe Flacco, who continued to wiggle out of one mini-controversy after another. Flacco is entering his fourth season as the starting quarterback with the Baltimore Ravens. The 2003 graduate of Audubon High in Camden County who began his college career at Pitt before ending it at Delaware, was a truly interesting offseason sound-bite. He voiced his displeasure over not having his contract extended, one that still has two years and a little more than $9 million remaining.

In an unusual move in today's social media climate, Lawrence Timmons didn't go to Facebook or Twitter to announce his new six-year contract with Pittsburgh, the way good friend LaMarr Woodley did after signing a similar deal with the Steelers earlier this month. "They said they wanted to keep it [low key]," Timmons said on Tuesday. "Once you pay a guy like that, I'm going to do what they say. " The new deal will pay Timmons $50 million if he sticks around until 2016, the kind of money that will make it difficult for him to remain one of the league's best-kept secrets.
