|Do you have an issue with A.J. Green and|
Patrick Peterson swapping jerseys after
they just played against each other?
James joined the Monday Morning Quarterback Quarterback Show on Fox Sports 1360 to discuss Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green swapping jerseys with Patrick Peterson after their head-to-head matchup on Sunday Night Football.
Clearly Peterson and Green have a mutual respect for one another. Peterson tweeted this after the game:
“@nfl: Jersey swap. #Respect #CINvsAZ pic.twitter.com/tAwGQqAH7Z”<- great battle today @ajgreen_18 #Respect

Green responded shortly after:
@RealPeterson21 @nfl always bro good luck this season..It's good to see two pro bowl players go at it on the field, yet be good friends off of it. Green's Bengals did win the game 19-13 and he was able to haul in five receptions for 53 yards with Peterson guarding him.

It was another big day of fantasy football talk on the SearsGarageDoors.com Fantasy Football Show on FOXSports 1360 with Dan Clasgens, James Adams, Stefanie Theobald, and James Rapien. We gave you everything you need to know about the wide receiver position for your draft. Here's a recap of the show:
Friday, August 22, 2014
|Johnny Manziel might not be the starting quarterback for the Browns,|
but that doesn't mean his teammates don't believe in him.
Even though Johnny Manziel might not start for the Cleveland Browns in 2014, he's receiving support from one veteran wide receiver. Nate Burleson backed Manziel even though he lost the starting job to Brian Hoyer, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
"I'll just say this, Johnny's still the man,'' said Burleson. “He's still a really good quarterback. He's an NFL-quality starting quarterback. Johnny will be successful in this league. ''
However, Burleson doesn't question the Browns decision to start Hoyer over Manziel.
|Burleson still believes in Manziel even though|
he won't be the starter in Cleveland.
Burleson has praised both players since training camp started.
"They've both got their qualities, their different in ways, but I like the way Brian has commanded the leadership of this team and grabbed ahold of the playbook. But Johnny being the No. 2 as you want to call it, we got arguably the best No. 2 in the NFL. I'm OK with that.''
Burleson might be trying to bolster the confidence of Manziel after he lost out on the starting job. Either way, he has made it clear he thinks Manziel can be successful in the NFL and that should give the rookie confidence moving forward.

#Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph's plans for his new cash? Same house, same truck. Oh, but this: Buying a new weight room for his high school.
