Redemption Story: Week 7 Risers and Fallers

Beyond the huge amount of relief I felt when Nick Folk’s potential game-winning kick ended up in the turf, there was also a sense of justice felt, knowing that the man who blocked the field goal had finally been redeemed.   None of us can forget the incredulous “pushing your own teammate” penalty that was called against Chris Jones in last year’s Week 7 contest against the...

Handcuff Report, Week 7: Handcuffs To The Handcuffs

In what has become a seemingly weekly occurrence the most interesting handcuff in the land happens to be playing in the Thursday Night Game. I think this happens just to spite me. It's as if the Football Gods force injuries and ineffectiveness on starters the week before they play on the thirstiest of all days. This week's example of my curse is, of course, former (?) third...

Bill Belichick was "happy" for Chris Jones after blocked field goal

Jim Rogash/Getty ImagesWhat a difference a year makes. Last year Nick Folk missed a 56 yard attempt in overtime that would have given the Jets the win over the Patriots.

Browns as favorites, scripting reality, and a fall playlist… While We’re Waiting

Trying to get used to the Browns as a road favorite… The Cleveland Browns aren’t supposed to be a favorite, let alone a road favorite. At least not in my mind having followed the team closely like the rest of you. I mean, I went through the numbers this week and it makes sense and I know it to be true, but I’m having a difficult time getting used to it. Even as it’s something...

Revis Open To Playing WR Against Jets

Darrelle Revis is looking to do work against his former team, from both sides of the football. Leave it up to Bill Belichick to devise such an uncanny 2-way scheme, which could have the star CB playing against the Jets’ vaunted secondary.
