Joe Thomas has been voted to the Pro Bowl five times, has the security of a seven-year, $84 million extension that he signed in August 2011 and is widely regarded as one of the top offensive tackles in the NFL. But Thomas has yet to get a taste of the playoffs and with the Cleveland Browns limping into Sunday's game against the Ravens with a 2-6 record, the chances for this season fade each week. Thomas was candid in discussing the frustration of playing for an organization that last made the postseason in 2002.

LeShon Johnson is one NFL player who doesn't need an off-season workout program. The New York Giants' running back works every day on his 12-acre ranch outside Tulsa, Okla., that features 10 horse stalls. Johnson bought the place this year near his father's 16-acre spread, and he's a hands-on owner who does everything, including cleaning out the stalls. "My wife gets on me every day that I'm out there doing all the work [even though he hired a ranch hand] instead of sitting back in the house," he said with a smile.

ATLANTA -- Charles Haley is not fooling around.And John Fina knows it.Fina, the starting left tackle for the Buffalo Bills, will draw the assignment of trying to keep Haley's mean attitude out of Jim Kelly's face on Sunday. But Haley, Dallas' right defensive end, is very clear about how the Cowboys will win the Super Bowl rematch."The key is going to be how the front four plays," Haley said yesterday, as both teams began preparations for Sunday's game. "If we dominate, we win."Responded Fina: "Charles could not be more right."

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick Thomas, a nine-time Pro Bowl pick and a former NFL Man of the Year who was paralyzed in an auto accident on Jan. 23, died yesterday in a Miami hospital. Thomas was being transferred from his hospital bed to a wheelchair on his way to therapy yesterday when he uttered something to his mother before his eyes rolled back and he died, according to Dr. Frank Eismont, a neurosurgeon at Jackson Memorial Hospital. Doctors could not specify the exact cause of death and may perform an autopsy, although one of his physicians, Barth Green, said a massive blood clot that entered the lungs probably killed the player.

Offensive lineman Jonathan Ogden admits to being a little tentative in Thursday night's loss to the Chiefs. Ogden is still recovering from a neck injury on the artificial turf at Atlanta on Oct. 3. He picked the wrong game to be tentative, having to face Pro Bowl linebacker Derrick Thomas on passing situations. Ordinarily, a matchup like this would be one to watch, but with Ogden not fully healthy, Thomas was able to take advantage a few times. Thomas did not get a sack, but he did get a couple of hurries on quarterback Stoney Case.
