Five draft picks why the Jets won’t make the playoffs

No one expected the Jets to be quite this bad in 2014 but their season is in complete shambles. Many saw an aging and over the hill Michael Vick quarterbacking the team at some point this season and sure enough he’s now the starter for this 2-8 team. It’s hard to believe this is the same team that was able to make back to back NFC Championship games in 2009/2010. Their drafting...

Must see: Dayton kicker scores a touchdown on his own kickoff

As we have seen with Bengals kicker, Mike Nugent, most kickers are best known for their misses. The ultimate nightmare of course, missing a chip shot to lose a game.
