FLORHAM PARK–Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson was fined $10,000 for his touchdown celebration on Sunday. Plaxico Burress’ response? “He can pay for it.” And that, was that.

Rex Ryan voiced confidence that the kinks will be worked out.  He said the two are, “Definitely working through it…It’s things like that we’re trying like crazy to clean up.” Burress gave a similar statement. “It all works together,” he said of the responsibilities that the receivers have to their quarterback. “Getting to the proper landmarks, be disciplined in our routes, Not cutting our routes two-to-three yards short.” Mike De Vito was the only player held out of practice completely on Wednesday. Ryan has pretty much already ruled him out for Sunday. LaDainian Tomlinson and Jeremy Kerley were back on the practice field and prac

Lebron’s Touchdown Celebration Was HILARIOUS

… OMG, that was the funniest thing I have ever seen. Where did Lebron think of that? To shoot himself in the leg like Plaxico Burress did that one time he accidentally shot himself in the leg? ******* Lebron, what a comedic genius. PS Seriously though, Lebron is that loser kid in middle school that repeats everyone’s joke immediately after theyve been said trying to get a pity...

It has been a rough season for the five guys usually recognized as one of the league's best units and a major strength of the team.

Keller says criticism of Sanchez is unfair

Jets tight end Dustin Keller joined NBC SportsTalk on Thursday night, and he addressed a variety of issues. For starters, Keller addressed with Russ Thaler the ongoing criticism of quarterback Mark Sanchez.   “Any time something breaks down offensively, immediately all the pressure goes on Mark Sanchez, Brian Schottenheimer, our offensive coordinator, and that’s absolutely not…

Hog Heaven Opponent Scouting: the New York Jets

The Redskins actually play a very important game this week.  It's not the Giants, Eagles, or Cowboys who will line up across from them, but the New York Jets that come to town.  The Redskins have not dominated too many NFL teams of late, but the Jets (as well as the Cardinals and Bears) are the exceptions to the rule.  Since the NFL realigned in 2002, just three teams in the...

The Giants Defense Gets Called Out By Its Coach

You have to have a long memory to remember a time when it was a coach of the Giants, not the Jets, making headlines for their performance in a press conference. It was Jim Fassel pushing all his chips into the middle of the table back in 2000 when he bet his own job on the team making it into the playoffs. It worked out and the Giants won the NFC, but since then it has been Herman...

Anyone else who saw the game on TV probably noticed that at the end of the game Sunday Sanchez was fired up about something on the sidelines, as he was obviously yelling at someone .. likely someone on defense.  From what I saw, he was standing next to Brodney Pool. but Cimini thinks his yelling was directed at someone else on the defense. Next, the cameras showed him stalking the...
