    McCourty was a wasted first round pick after all. Color me not surprised.

    If he gets cut after the season, he can call Rex and see if a real defensive coach wants to teach him the trade.

    “Raiders K Sebastian Janikowski has 11 kickoffs and 11 touchbacks.”

    You gotta wonder when the streak will end, his kickoffs have been at the back of the end zone, or right through it.

    Titus young barely got any time to play in the preseason because of a hamstring injury. He looked sharp in the game last week, definitely a good sign.

    Rexismyboyfriend…..you mean like how defensive genius Rex Ryan taught Vernon Gholston the trade? Child, please.

    McCourty is a solid player. the only question is just how good he is – not sure he’s a legit pro bowler yet but i’d take him

    We’re waiting to see how Gabbert “fares”, MDS. Any error, no matter how small, is of biblical proportions when invoking the name of The Great Gabbert.
