    My gosh. How many cliches can one person cram into 5 sentences?

    “Jets coach Rex Ryan doesn’t understand how a team built to run the football could only pick up 38 yards on the ground…” That’s because he believes his own delusional gasbaggery after it comes out of his mouth. And he’s got thousands of Jets fans right with him.

    Note to Rex – Your offensive line sucks. Maybe Mangold will make a big difference. But that line you put out there on Sunday night wasn’t pass blocking or run blocking.

    It’s funny cause those cliches weren’t really about them but the eagles

    “Some”?!? More like “most”. This owner has shown horrible judgment so far. The only thing I have seen that looks remotely promising is that he seems willing to spend some money in free agency. Now, if only they had a guy that could accurately tell him which players are actually worth the money.

    Ross seems to value celebrities and gimmicks more than a quality football team and the fan base is acting accordingly by not showing up. That does not bode well as Los Angeles (Hollywood) is screaming for a franchise and Goodell is doing everything in his power to get them one.

    It’s a shame that Huizenga and Ross have turned a once proud and professional franchise into the laughing stock of the league.

    Note to Ross: Get rid of the “yes men” who are only concerned with kissing your butt, and go find some guys that know football and tell it like it is–and actually listen to them. (No, Peterson is not one of the knowledgeable gurus.)

    “Platelet-rich plasma therapy”?Can’t do it with race-horses, it’s called blood-packing.Sounds fishy to me.

    If Theismann thinks Ponder should start then I’m absolutely certain they should stick with McNabb

    @clintonportisheadd

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but to be gramatically correct, and not sound like Chris Johnson, I would say 5.

    e-z for romo to say….raiders have been playing mostly 5 guys up on the line, and only two backers……I have seen McClain break up passes 40 yards downfield covering a rb multiple times this year…..I know where romo is coming from, but raiders ask a lot of McClain.

    Are they planning to also make WINNING their primary objective in 2012?

    “Jets coach Rex Ryan doesn’t understand how a team built to run the football could only pick up 38 yards on the ground against the Ravens.”

    Might have something to do with the offseason you just spent convincing yourself you had a great passing offense.

    “The Steelers are threatening to sue the owner of a parking lot.”

    —————————————————–

    If they go to court they had better hope they have guys who are better lawyers than the players they have blocking for Pig Pen are at being linemen.

    That OL of theirs gives added meaning to the word “offensive” in the term “offensive line”…

    yo Domo what fans of any team need answers to the stupid questions the media ask’s after any game. whether it’s coaches or players, the media is only looking for the answers that can be construed as controversial so they can blow them out of proportion. Real fans watch the game and know what happened or didn’t happen. write your story for the people that need your EXPERTICE and let those people form their opinion as such. I personally think no coach or player should talk to reporters until way after a cooling off period has occured.
