Prepare for the Jets to once again dominate the back pages.
According to ESPN’s Chris Mortenson the Jets will fire both their general manger (John Idzik) and their head coach (Rex Ryan) today.
The Jets will have a lot to offer coaching candidates. They’ll have the 6th pick in this spring’s draft, a dominant defensive line and a QB that torched the Dolphins for over 300 yards...
It was bound to happen, but Kobe was finally asked what he thought about MyTweetsRealAF asking Snottie Drippen to “Meet Him in Temecula” to catch of fade over a Twitter beef about Kobe (and respect).
Kobe replied in classic fashion.
So @ArashMarkazi told the Temecula story to Kobe. Kobe: "Mamba Army don't f— around."

The Lakers took the L on the court to the Suns, but depending on who you talk to Swaggy P is still winning off the court.
Thanks to The Lottery Pick for the video.
Mike Tomlin didn’t take kindly to Reggie Nelson’s low tackle on running back Le’Veon Bell.
Bell is a huge part of the Steeler’s offence and their playoff chances take a huge hit if he isn’t able to play next weekend.
24-7 Sports is reporting that it isn’t just Jeff Driskel that is considering coming to Duke, but also OSU QB Braxton Miller.
Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel has been released to Duke, among other schools. Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, according to sources, has expressed interest in transferring to Duke as well. Both Driskel and Miller would be eligible to play next season...
Miami Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace will have to deal with angry teammates who didn’t appreciate him bailing on them during their loss to the lowly Jets.
Many Dolphins are angry at Wallace because he went to Joe Philbin and asked out of the game according to Jeff Darlington of NFL Network. Several different players told Darlington they feel that Wallace’s actions were tantamount...
I hate to see plays like this, and really wish defensive guys would choose to deliver a blow up top, instead of below the knee.
Steelers running back and MVP candidate Le’Veon Bell had to leave Sunday nights game against the Bengals with a knee injury.
Hopefully it’s not serious.
If you missed it (not sure how you could) @mytweetsrealaf and @snottiedrippen had an epic Twitter beef that started over Kobe and then sort of spiraled out of control about respect and keeping it real. It ended crossing over to the mainstream, but had sort of died down over the last 24 hours as most people went on with their lives, but Mr. AF isn’t done. He dropped...
The San Francisco 49ers could end up hiring a player friendly coach to take the team to a Super Bowl. They could also regret the day they didn’t provide Jim Harbaugh with the power he desired inside the organization.
During his press conference following the 49ers’ win over the Cardinals, Gore said that he will wait until a new staff is hired before making a decision about his...
This was a hell of a play by Andy Dalton to just keep the play alive. Once he flipped it off to Gio, the running back did the rest, hurdling a defender to get into the endzone.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers locked up the number one overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft today, after falling to the New Orleans Saints 23-20.
Bucs led by 13 heading into the fourth quarter, but that lead went away after Lovie Smith made some questionable substitutions. It led for some people to wonder if they were tanking.
Smith denied those reports.
“It had nothing to do...
The AFC Wildcard scenario has been announced, and the opening weekend will be a strong physical contest in the one game, and a likely shootout in another.
The seeding in the AFC sets up like this:
1. New England Patriots 2. Denver Broncos 3. Cincinnati Bengals 4. Indianapolis Colts 5. Pittsburgh Steelers 6. Baltimore Ravens
We will have the times and dates for you, but the AFC wildcard...
The Jim Harbaugh era is over in San Francisco, and it happened faster than we thought. According to Ian Rapoport, the announcement was made shortly after Harbaugh’s final presser in San Francisco.
The #49ers and Jim Harbaugh are parting ways, source says.

The NFC Wildcard scenario has been announced, and their will definitely be an uproar about the Arizona Cardinals having to fly across country to take on a Panthers team that doesn’t even have a winning record. The Packers win over the Lions gave them the No. 2 seed, and a needed first round bye for Aaron Rodgers.
The seeding in the NFC sets up like this:
1. Seattle Seahawks 2...
Solomon seems like a nice enough guy, he just made a bet and his boys remembered and are holding him to it.
For his part he seems to be a man of his word.

Suh definitely steps on Aaron Rodgers’ ankle and lingers there for a while. Was it intentional or not, will be up for the NFL to decide.
Suh’s reputation is such that he might not be given the benefit of the doubt. This could be important because the Lions will need Suh for the Wild Card round.
I am sure Suh will say it was accidental and he was not flagged on the play.
I am more surprised that Chris Rock has been married for 19 years than Manziel favoriting Tweets during the game, but some some fans were heated.

The Los Angeles Lakers have reportedly been awarded center Tarik Black off waivers from the Rockets, who waived the big man to make room for Josh Smith.
L.A. waived injured guard Xaiver Henry to make room for Black as well. Black, an undrafted rookie from Kansas, appeared in 25 games (12 starts) for the Houston Rockets this season...

Cary Williams should be done in Philadelphia, and the Eagles should do a complete overhaul of their awful secondary. The embattled cornerback was asked about his future in Philadelphia after the Eagles watch Odell Beckham Jr. go wild in the secondary.
According to several reports, Williams made it clear that Chip Kelly’s system wears the players out, and he doesn’t really care...
Either the Packers or Lions will be traveling to Dallas next week to open the divisional playoff round. The Lions closed the gap on the Packers with this perfect strike from Matthew Stafford to Megatron between two Packers defenders.
In one sense, Aaron Rodgers just threw one of the most amazing touchdown passes you’ll see, toss the TD while his calf apparantly gave out on him.
That amazing touchdown pass may be beyond costly, and could change the entire playoff picture.
Clay Matthews dumped Lions running back Joique Bell for a four-yard loss and reached into his bag of WWE tricks to celebrate the play.
Matthews hit Bell with John Cena’s “You can’t see me” gesture:
Matthews would later give up on a big Bell run while complaining to the referee.
Whether Jim Harbaugh takes the Michigan or Oakland Raiders job, he’s done in San Francisco. Harbaugh and 49ers owner Jed York embraded at midfield before his final game, but Harbaugh really didn’t seem to embrace the bro moment.

The Baltimore Ravens made their way into the AFC divisional playoffs with a comeback win over the Browns, and the Chiefs beating the Chargers without Alex Smith.
