Multiple news outlets are reporting Wednesday that the New York Jets and former Titans running back Chris Johnson have agreed to a two-year deal. Johnson was released by the Titans last week. The deal is reportedly worth $8 million over two years with $1 million in incentives. Johnson joins ex-Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker as […]
The pipe dream has come true. The New England Patriots wasted no time after Darrelle Revis was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Wednesday afternoon, swooping in to sign the former Jets cornerback to a one-year, $12 million contract. No, seriously: CB Darrelle Revis and the New England Patriots have reached agreement on a […]
The rumors have been swirling for a while now: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are getting rid of cornerback Darrelle Revis, and the New England Patriots are interested in taking him off their hands. I’ve tried laughing it off as another of those ridiculous offseason “stories” that have no real journalistic basis. I didn’t want to […]
ESPN is reporting that former Patriots offensive coordinator and current Penn State coach Bill O’Brien is going to become the next head coach of the Houston Texans. These promotions of former Patriots coaches always makes me wonder how Bill Belichick reacts to his former coordinators becoming his equal (if there is such a thing with […]
With the season rapidly approaching its end, teams are scrambling for position, especially in the tightened up Wildcard races. Even Buffalo (4-7), for example, is only 1.5 games back. The Chiefs, Broncos and Seahawks are still the class of the NFL, but for other seeds, things are still up in the air. Now that Tampa […]
Just under two months remain in the season. All teams have won a game now, though Kansas City has yet to lose. Ed Reed has been waived by the Texans. Carolina has been making noise. Detroit is in sole possession of the NFC North late in the season for the first time in some time. […]
With every team now through at least eight games, nobody is slowing down yet. The injury bug just doesn’t stop, now keeping Aaron Rodgers out for a few weeks; might a Matt Flynn redux in Green Bay be in the works? Kansas City remains without a loss. The NFC especially is producing plenty of close […]
After making a splash by letting Wes Welker walk and signing Danny Amendola, the New England Patriots continued their active ways in the free agent market by making a flurry of signings over the past couple of days, as well as hosting a number of free agents. Take a deep breath, Patriots fans. There’s a […]
After having been seen leaving Sunday’s game with crutches and a protective walking boot, Julian Edelman saw his season officially come to an end when the New England Patriots placed the wide receiver and punt returner on injured reserve on Tuesday. To replace him on the roster, the Patriots signed wide receiver Donte’ Stallworth.
The New York Jets under Rex Ryan aren’t exactly known for their Think-Before-You-Speak mentality. In a press conference during his first training camp as head coach, Ryan referred to the attitude in his locker room as “swaggerlicious.” The positive side of the term means the team believes it can – or should – beat any […]
If you watched the Patriots slaughter the Jets on Thursday night, there is probably a series of questions that have been on your mind. One question is, “who is Steve Gregory and where did he come from?” Well I know I certainly had to find out for myself after his wonderful performance on Thursday. Where […]
The New York Post chose to feature Mark Sanchez on the back cover in Friday’s edition. Why? Oh, well the Jets lost to the Patriots 49-19 Thanksgiving night. Here is their take on the game:
If there’s any video that exemplifies why Patriots DT Vince Wilfork is a future Hall of Famer and Jets QB Mark Sanchez is one of the worst quarterbacks in the NFL, this is it: Bring on Tim Tebow!
The last time the Patriots were scheduled to play the Jets, we heard the same propaganda from the media and the fans. Pats will roll. The Jets stink. Mark Sanchez is not a big-time quarterback. All of this may be true. But, I wasn’t being a contrarian when I predicted a Jets victory, and I […]
The bye-week could not have come at a better time for the banged up New England Patriots. With injuries to Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Logan Mankins, Brandon Spikes, and a good amount of the secondary, a bye could be just what the doctor ordered for the second half of the season. The Patriots stand at […]
