Browns S Whitner, Bills RB Jackson having war of words
Whitner tweeted this summer about the team's proposed move to Toronto, asking how Bills fans feel about it and following it up with an "LOL." Jackson hasn't been laughing out loud.
"If you talk down to anybody, you can't be respected," he said via ESPN. "That's just me, that's how I feel about it. For him to stay stuff like that, about people that we love in this organization, he'll never get my respect for that." Jackson also called Whitner "an idiot."
Whitner did not back off, claiming that his words could now have more of a purpose.
"[The Toronto Bills comment] wasn't excessive. It wasn't a joke. I knew that it would get to them. I knew it would ruffle a feather. If they're over there talking about this, maybe we are in their heads. Maybe I'm in their heads. Maybe. We don't know, but the goal is to go 1-0, the goal is to get them talking about things other than football, and I guess that's what they're doing."

Bucs looking for 'the answer' for lackluster running game
"A defense can just tee off on you if you can’t run the football," Smith said, per The Tampa Tribune. "When you can’t run the ball consistently in this league, it hurts."
The Bucs did rush for more than 100 yards in each of their first two games. Since then, they are averaging 73.8 rushing yards per game and 3.4 yards per carry.
The Bucs are averaging 21.7 run plays per game, which is the second-fewest in the NFL. Only one time this year has a Bucs' running back carried the ball more than 20 times. Offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo admits it might be time to change that, and get running backs
"We haven’t tried that yet," Arroyo said when asked if the solution might be as simple as calling 30 or more rushing plays per game. "Maybe that is the answer."
