    According to two reports out of Philadelphia, Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy and former NFL back Curtis Brinkley are being investigated after an incident with off-duty police officers.

    CSNPhiily.com, which got a look at the police report, says McCoy and Brinkley were at Recess Lounge at around 2:30 a.m. on Sunday when they got into an altercation with three off-duty officers that began "over the purchase of champagne." Brinkley grabbed the bottle, setting things off between the men.

    A law enforcement official told CSNPhilly.com that two of the officers suffered broken ribs; television station WPVI reported those men had to be hospitalized for their injuries.

    Neither McCoy nor Brinkley were arrested, but both men are being investigated.

    "You are the face of our brand right now, you can't do that," Deion Sanders said after the game. "I understand the emotions of losing, but you can't do that. A Manning, a Brady ... all these guys who are a prototypical type of quarterback in our game, they're not going to do that ever. Would Drew Brees ever?"

    Sanders continued.

    "You're opening yourself for more criticism," he said.  Because everybody is going to say you're dabbing and smiling and smiling and styling. So this is how you go out when you lose?"

    Marshall Faulk, who knows the pain of losing a Super Bowl, tried to put Newton's sour attitude in perspective and staged a nice debate with Sanders that made for good television.
