Monday September 12th, 2011

An abbreviated look at what’s going on around the NFL on Monday, Sept. 12:

• Have you noticed a lack of Chad Ochocinco appearances on Twitter lately? The reason could be Bill Belichick telling his new wide receiver to "cool it" with his social media presence.

David Garrard still wants to play football, despite being unceremoniously cut by the Jaguars just days before Week 1. He just doesn't want to be a temporary fix for a desperate team.

• Sure, Donovan McNabb had a terrible debut for the Vikings in a loss at San Diego Sunday. But Minnesota's bigger concern might be over its shaky offensive line.

• Tampa Bay fell behind before halftime against the Lions and came out in the third quarter using a hurry-up offense. That change limited the role LeGarrette Blount had in the Bucs' loss.

Michael Crabtree said his broken foot was healthy heading into Sunday's game, but the results on the field told a different story.

DeSean Jackson might be one of the next NFL superstars in line for a big pay raise, and he proved again Sunday against the Rams that he's definitely deserving of a more lucrative deal. • A lot of things went right Sunday for the Bills in a shocking upset of the Chiefs. The biggest surprise of the day might have been tight end Scott Chandler, who hauled in two touchdowns.
