JEFF CUMBERLAND NEWS

It may not seem like a glamourous position, as tight end is still viewed by many as a job that is as much about being an offensive lineman as it is a wide receiver. But that’s a notion that is quickly changing, becoming more and more outdated with each passing season. Across the NFL, tight ends are a major part of passing attacks. And their role isn’t just as a possession receiver...

Patriots Escape from the Meadowlands With the Victory

Going into this divisional match up, most of Patriots Nation expected a tight battle like always from the Jets. Nevertheless, I don't think most fans expected it to be as close as it was, seeing how the Patriots were trailing for a good portion of the day. The common Patriots fan will come out of this one with mostly negative thoughts, as they should because there were a lot of points...

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Dumpster Fire

The New York Jets put on a pathetic display of football today in San Diego, losing 31-0. Statistically, this game is borderline incomprehensible, as their two quarterbacks combined to go 13/32 for 60 yards, their defense allowed 439 total yards, including 162 rushing (to San Diego’s 4th string running back!) and didn’t cross the 50 yard line until garbage time in the 4th quarter...
