Mouthy Raiders receiver, benched last season after pining for a trade and dissing then coach Art Shell, was in full splendor in Sunday's win over Miami. After snagging two TDs in a game for the first time in nearly two years, Porter told The Sacramento Bee, "I've had this feeling before.... I don't mind it all."
The Dallas Cowboys are 4--0 (which rhymes with Romo and T.O.), and Colts tight end Dallas Clark (left) was gettin' giddy after catching the first of two touchdowns on Sunday: He spiked the ball so hard that it went into the stands.
Sweet: Ken's Cardinals are 2--2. Sweeter: They knocked back the Steelers (who bypassed him for their head-coaching job last January) on Sunday. "A special win," said Whisenhunt whose two-QB system has him looking like a genuine whiz.
Yankees catcher closed a .338, 20-homer season (yup, he's bound for free agency) by serving as manager for a day. And he won.
Mouthy Dolphins linebacker guaranteed a win over the Raiders on Sunday. Oops. Porter was silenced on the field (four tackles) as Oakland had 299 rushing yards. "We're not a good team," said Porter of 0--4 Miami after the game, while Raiders tackle Warren Sapp, one who knows, explained, "It's tough when you run your mouth."
Marlins catcher Miguel Olivo got a five-game suspension for starting a brawl with the Mets' Jose Reyes, and O's shortstop Miguel Tejada (right) is balking at talk that he switch to third base, saying he'd rather be traded.
Bad: Brian's Ravens are 2--2, 0--2 in their division. Worse: They got beaten by the Browns and running back Jamal Lewis—cut by Billick last February. Then Billick was criticized for not challenging a Lewis TD that might have been overturned.
Rookie might've cracked the Flyers lineup—but got a deserved 20-game ban for a hit to the head of Ottawa's Dean McAmmond.
