Quote of the Week III
"Stop following me around.''
-- Text message from Shawn Springs, who signed with the Patriots, to longtime rival Terrell Owens, who signed with the Bills last week. The two will play twice a year in 2009.
The first Buffalo-New England matchup, with Tom Brady making his first start in a year (presumably) and Owens lining up across from Springs (also presumably, considering Springs has played him so well over the years), would be a gift to ESPN in the Monday night opener in September. But I get a feeling CBS has been scratching and clawing for Brady's re-debut to highlights its Week 1 slate.
