A common 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:

Raheem Morris, coach

of the 0-5 Tampa Bay


"We had our coaches meeting this morning. We got our faces ripped off as a

coaching staff,

me included."


Randy Hanson, Raiders assistant coach, in an

interview with Yahoo Sports about an alleged sucker punch from

Coach Tom Cable:

"From my blind side, Tom Cable threw me from my chair and into a piece of furniture that a lamp sat upon. He was screaming, 'I'll [expletive] kill you! I'll [expletive] kill you!' And I have no reason to believe he wouldn't have killed me if they hadn't pulled him away. If my head would've hit a different way, I might be dead right now."


Dre Bly, San Francisco cornerback, on showboating on an interception against Atlanta that led to him fumbling the ball back to the Falcons:

"It was totally

inappropriate . . . I went to coach [Mike Singletary] and apologized. After looking at things last night, it was wrong."


Jim Mora, Seattle coach, on fullback Owen Schmitt, who opened a gash on his forehead by excitedly

slamming his own helmet into his noggin before

Sunday's game:

"I said, 'Hey pal, if you get hurt, we don't have anybody else.' That's just his enthusiasm. He came over and apologized. I told him, 'Use your head.' "


Ralph Wilson, Buffalo Bills owner, on the future of Coach Dick Jauron in the aftermath of a 6-3 loss to Cleveland:

"[Sunday] was so bad that it's hard to make a decision right now. I'm not going to make any decisions during the middle of the season right now. At least right now."


Kerry Rhodes, New York Jets safety, before Monday night's game against the Miami Dolphins:

"This is like a showcase for us. People have been seeing us a lot on TV, doing a lot of talking, how we're more swagger-licious. Now it's a chance to show the world we're not just talk and we definitely deserve to be one of the teams to beat this year."
