DP: Don't get humble on me, Ray.
RL: I'm always humble. [Laughs.] I told you, it's just my other side.
DP: T.O. to the Bengals with Ochocinco—good move?
RL: Twice a year, that's all I can tell you.
DP: You can pop one of them—which one do you choose?
RL: No. I can pop both of them. [Laughs.]
• HIgher Calling
Last week 49ers running back Glen Coffee, the team's third-round pick in the 2009 draft, abruptly retired to pursue a career in the ministry. "I actually thought I should have been done in college," Coffee, 23, said. "That's why I left [college] early. I was done with football, but I thought if I was getting paid, I would be able to tolerate it. In the end, that couldn't happen. My heart wasn't in the right place. When you're not at peace with yourself, it's kind of hard to minister to others."
• Fair Play
Former Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson is no stranger to handling players with big egos and personalities, and he thinks the Vikings are being too accommodating with Brett Favre, who rejoined the team midway through training camp. "All of our star players, I expected them to be on time," Johnson said. "When you anoint someone as a savior, the rest of the players say, 'What about me?'"
