PITTSBURGH -- Steelers running back Stevan Ridley isnt backing down from comments he made to the Boston Herald that the New England Patriotstrashed him after he was injured in his final season there. Ridley, a former 1,000-yard rusher, will be part of the Steelers two-man rushing attack Sunday against New England at Heinz Field, and he said he cant wait. Thats my old team. The departure really hadnt sat well, and Im a competitor, Ridley told Pittsburgh media after Thursdays practice. Im going to compete.

The Brooklyn guard is planning to have a different set of sneakers in every game this year, paying tribute to either various people or causes on that particular night. On Tuesday in Miami, his shoes were an homage to Heat guard Dwyane Wade -- and Dinwiddie proudly got one of his childhood idols to sign the kicks afterward.

I knew when the schedule came out and he had said this is his last year, that we had to do something special, Dinwiddie said after Brooklyns 104-92 victory. Dinwiddie isnt keeping the Wade-themed shoes or any...
Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark declared the Richard Sherman era over after Seattles 21-7 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night. Clark, who leads Seattle with 11 sacks, was responding to comments made last month by his former teammate, now with the San Francisco 49ers, that the Seahawks were a middle of the road team. Sherman made his comments before the 49ers first meeting with the Seahawks this season, when Seattle was 6-5. The Seahawks won that game 43-16 at CenturyLink Field. The Seahawks, now 8-5, can clinch a playoff spot by beating Shermans 49ers at Levis Stadium on Sunday. Hes not in this locker room no more, so his opinion really doesnt matter, Clark told reporters. Theyve got some problems over there in San Fran that he needs to be worried about. ... This is my team now. This is my defense. Richard Sherman, his era is over here, Clark continued. If...
