WitP: Bess, Pisa, McBriar, Samson, Manuwai

Here's a sign of how much opposing NFL teams respect Davone Bess, via a tweet by Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News:
First curveball in #Jets vs. #Dolphins: I'm told that Darrelle Revis will be on Davone Bess. A. Cromartie will be on B. Marshall. #nfl #nyj
As Pisa Tinoisamoa recovers from arthroscopic knee surgery, he tells Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune that he hopes to be ready for the playoffs.
Linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa said he has arthroscopic surgery on his right knee last Friday with hopes of being fully healthy by the playoffs.

"It was painful,'' Tinoisamoa said of the injury prior to the surgery. "I'd go home, and it'd hurt. Walk around, and it'd hurt. I mean, that's not right. It's not supposed to do that.'
Matt Cordon of KnowYourDallasCowboys.com takes a look at Mat McBriar's career season (so far).
Although McBriar has had a better gross average in the past, his 2010 campaign may still be his best. He’s led the league in gross average before (as he does this season), but for the first time, he also leads the league in net punting average.
Raiders center Samson Satele talks about his great performance last week, and tells Jerry McDonald of Inside the Oakland Raiders that he can't wait to face off against Tyson Alualu.
Satele described Jacksonville’s 4-3 front as a constantly moving target, with a lot of stemming.

Of particular interest is defensive tackle Tyson Alualu, the first-round draft pick from Cal.

“I can’t wait for Alualu,’’ Satele said. “My cousin is married to his sister so it should be a good match.’’
And Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com's AFC South Blog named Vince Manuwai as last week's AFC South High Energy Player of the Week.
“Without Vinny in the lineup, some of the stuff we are doing now wouldn’t be possible,” Jones-Drew said. “He doesn’t just move a guy 1 or 2 yards off the line. He moves him 4 or 5 yards, which makes it easier for me as a running back. You know you can get 4 or 5 yards when you are going to his side. He’s very physical and he always says, ‘Some people like to do other things, I like to block.’ Glad to have him on my side.”
