ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Joey Porter and Brandon Marshall just can't leave the trash talk on the field. Still steamed over the Miami linebacker calling him soft after the Dolphins' 26-17 win at Denver on Sunday, the Broncos star receiver returned the insults Tuesday. "Yeah, Joey Porter's one of them guys, when you got guys who talk a lot of trash, just want to talk about people or put people down, they have their own insecurities," Marshall said. "And his insecurities I don't know. But he's definitely one of those guys who all those muscles are popcorn muscles. He's soft." Porter, who leads the league with 11Â½ sacks, helped hold Marshall to two late catches Sunday and then continued his jawing in the locker room afterward, suggesting Marshall pouted after not getting an early catch and allowed all the taunting to affect him mentally and knock him off his game. "He's one of those soft receivers, where he has to have the ball all the time. If he don't get it, he's going to mope and cry. He did it to himself," Porter suggested. Marshall was clearly frustrated by the effective coverage he faced and after the game took shots at his quarterback, Jay Cutler, for not finding him on the few occasions he was in single coverage and at Denver's defensive coordinator for giving Miami's receivers so much cushion. Marshall didn't hear about Porter's jabs until after he had left Invesco Field on Sunday night. After a day off, Marshall was eager to return the ridicule Tuesday. "You know, we hear stories floating around the league all the time about him as far [as being] in nightclubs dancing with his shirt off like a girl or in the playground getting beat up back in California," Marshall said. "He's one of those guys that no matter how big he is, he can still get knocked on his butt and he's soft. He's soft at heart and you can tell by the way he talks. "And his nickname is 'Peezy.' I don't know what 'Peezy' is," Marshall added, then paused and leaned forward to deliver the punctuation: "Joey!" The Dolphins were off Tuesday and Porter wasn't available to respond to Marshall's volleys. But what about Porter's allegation that defenders can get into his head and take him out of the game? Is there some truth to that?"No, no, you've got to understand the situation, they're winning and we're going back and forth and he won because they won the game," Marshall said. "It wasn't nothing to do with us talking, going back and forth. And he ran with it. He ran with it pretty good. "Getting in my head? Never. He can't get in my head because I'm always trying to make plays and I'm always trying to make things happen," Marshall insisted. "I'm never shutting down. I don't care if we're down by 40 points or we're up by 40 points, I'm never shutting it down, I'm always going to try to do my best and make plays." Copyright 2008 by The Associated Press

SEAN HANNITY, CO-HOST: The Diageo/Hotline polled voters about the congressional election and found that, as of today, 44 percent plan on voting Democratic. Thirty-nine percent will cast their vote for a Republican. The poll indicating Democrats may be losing some support, as their lead is now only 5 percent as opposed to 8 a week ago. Joining us now is the host of the red hot "Huckabee." By the way, you had Lorne Michaels. You had Bill Maher â€” who by the way, hates me; I don't know what it is â€” on your program. It was a great show this weekend. Mike Huckabee, FOX News contributor, host of "Huckabee" right here on the FOX News Channel. What do you make of the brand issue, and that is that the Republican brand isn't as well? But it was like 20 points before, and now it's down to five. Is that â€” is that a sign something's going on? Maybe people not liking Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid?

Patrick Edwards -- a ride receiver for the University of Houston's football team -- suffered a compound leg fracture in an accident during the Cougars' 37-23 loss at Marshall.Houston QB Blake Joseph threw deep in the end zone to WR Edwards, causing him to run and smash his right shin into a band equipment cart. The impact caused a compound fracture of Edwards' right leg.The cart had been left a few yards past the out-of-bounds line. It is not clear why the cart was there in the first place, but is however stirring speculation that Edwards and his family may file a lawsuit.Cougars' coach Kevin Sumlin told the Houston Chronicle that while he had "his opinions" on the subject, he would have no comment. Houston Athletic Director David Maggard said he would pursue the matter with Marshall officials."It was duly noted, and I think we'll save the conversation for another day," Maggard told the Houston paper."I don't think there is any question that it is a problem. We all noticed it, and we want to find out why something like that would occur. It was a serious injury, no question about it."
CHICAGO â€” One of the least experienced of the elite runners at the Chicago Marathon, Evans Cheruiyot of Kenya proved the fastest on Sunday, winning in 2 hours 6 minutes 25 seconds on a sunny, hot day that had organizers again concerned about the safety of the more than 30,000 average runners in the field. Lidiya Grigoryeva of Russia won the womenâ€™s race in 2:27:17, tempering an embarrassing summer for her native country, in which five Olympians were suspended before the Beijing Games for using someone elseâ€™s urine in an attempt to circumvent doping controls. Meanwhile, as temperatures rose to 78 degrees an hour and a half into Sundayâ€™s 26.2-mile race, organizers were hoping to avoid a repeat of the calamitous 2007 Chicago Marathon, when the race was halted after 3Â½ hours because of temperatures in the high 80s, oppressive humidity and complaints about lack of available drinking water. This year, 20 aid stations were placed along the course, an increase from 15. More water was made available, along with misting stations and a color-coded alert system on the course. Considering that Chicago is seeking to host the 2016 Summer Olympics, another interruption of the race would have been a public relations â€” not to mention a health nightmare. No major incidents were reported as the average runners went through the first five aid stations. At Sundayâ€™s 8 a.m. start, the temperature was already 65 degrees â€” about 10 degrees above optimum for the end of a marathon â€” and the humidity was 73 percent, though dropping. By 9:30, the mercury had risen to 78, with 41 percent humidity. Some 45,000 runners had registered for the race, but only about 35,000 appeared at the start on Sunday. Some, perhaps, were discouraged by the weather. In the menâ€™s race, Daniel Njenga of Kenya, who had finished second or third in the past five Chicago Marathons, had hoped to finally get a victory on Sunday, but fell off the pace by 11 miles. Meanwhile, the race appeared to distill itself to three other Kenyans: Cheruiyot, who was running in only his second marathon, Emmanuel Mutai and David Mandago. By mile 18, Mutai had drifted, and it was left to Mandago and Cheruiyot to share the lead with a metronic pace of 4:52 per mile. Mandago, a taller runner whose left arm swings wide with each stride, drew ahead and at one point seemed to be pulling away from his countryman. But Cheruiyot, 26, would not fade, though. He drew ahead in the 24th mile and finally forced Mandago to succumb in mile 25 with a steady, short stride. Cheruiyotâ€™s winning time was a personal best by nearly four minutes. Through 21 miles, Cheruiyot and Mandago were on pace to break Khalid Khannouchiâ€™s course record of 2:05:42, set in 1999, until the heat sapped finishing speed from the Kenyansâ€™ legs. Mandago took second more than a minute back in 2:07:37, and Timothy Cherigat of Kenya finished third in 2:11:39. In the womenâ€™s race, the Olympic champion Constantina Tomescu-Dita of Romania tried to win a second marathon only 56 days after taking gold in Beijing. The pace was slow through the halfway point (1:15:26) and Tomescu-Dita hung with a pack of a dozen leaders. The sluggish pace seemed to be playing into her hands. Unlike the Olympic race, though, when Tomescu-Dita broke away at 13.1 miles, she didnâ€™t have enough energy left in her legs on Sunday. Instead, it was two Russians, Grigoryeva and Alevtina Biktimirova, who drew ahead, along with Bezunesh Bekele of Ethiopia, with a 5:15 mile, by far the fastest in the race. By mile 15, Bekele, too, had dropped away and the two Russian were left to sort the race among themselves. After letting her countrywoman do the hard work in the lead, Grigoryeva surged to the front in mile 21, with another 5:14 mile. She had won Boston in 2007, and on Sunday she won by more than two minutes. Biktimirova took second in 2:29:32. Kiyoko Shimahara of Japan was third in 2:30:19. Tomescu-Dita finished a distant fourth.

Ben Bernanke may not have sold Main Street on the largest bailout in American history, but it isn't for lack of trying. The Federal Reserve chairman appeared flustered speaking before Congress Wednesday as politicians skewered the $700.0 billion financial bailout he is backing questioning motivations for the plan and even whether it will work. â€œAmericans are furious," said Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., chairman of the Joint Economic Committee of Congress. Lawmakers were hearing "amazement, astonishment and intense anger" from their constituents, he said. Yet, he said a deal on a bailout would soon be reached, suggesting that all the Washington pushback may just be grandstanding. Still, it was the second day the bailout plan got a cool reception from lawmakers. (See "Paulson Plays Pinata.")
