A common postgame response to questions after NFL games is, "I have to wait to see the film." Times NFL writer Sam Farmer sorts through the best of Monday's film review:

::

Jim Schwartz, Detroit coach, on a rumored rift between Lions quarterback Matt Stafford and receiver Calvin Johnson partly based on TV shots from the sideline:

"Good gracious, if there was a camera on every single person on every single play, you could read between the lines on a million different things."

::

Michael Vick, seldom-used by Philadelphia, to NBC on the possibility of staying with the Eagles next season:

"It would be hard. It would be an everyday struggle. But I would have to take that time to hone my skills and get better."

::

Donte Whitner, Buffalo safety, to ESPN on the suggestion of NBC's Tony Dungy that Vick could wind up with the Bills:

"I believe that Michael Vick would be a good fit, and I would encourage whoever to bring Michael Vick in."

::

Tommie Harris, Chicago defensive tackle, on being ejected in the first minute Sunday after officials spotted him punching prone Arizona guard Deuce Lutui:

"In the six years I've been here I've never done anything like that, and he kind of pushed me to my limits and I apologize for all that."

::

Peter Schaeffer, agent for Larry Johnson, to the Associated Press on the Chiefs cutting the onetime star running back:

"A part of him is excited and a part of him is very regretful. There's a lot of feelings going on right now. It's analogous to breaking up with a girlfriend. Maybe you saw it coming, but it still hurts when it happens."

::

Chad Ochocinco, Cincinnati receiver, on his (scuttled) plans to hand an official a dollar bill in hopes of jokingly bribing him into ruling a catch was made inbounds:

"I was just being me."
