CB Devin McCourty had an inconsistent day in the Patriots win.

The Jets’ offensive plan is coming under criticism in the wake of Saturday’s loss.

Special teams remains a place of concern for the Ravens.

Said Bengals WR Jerome Simpson of his flip into the end zone, “It seemed like he was going to hit me and I didn’t want to get hit, and I used my athletic ability and my jumping ability.”

Said Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew, “What do you want me to say about the personal goals? It doesn’t mean anything. I mean, we’re 4-11. I don’t see any personal goals in 4-11. This isn’t tennis where it’s me versus the other guy. This is a team game where all 53 guys have to play at a high level for you to win, and we’ve done that only four times this year, and it hurts. It’s past frustrating. I’m going to have a bad Christmas.”

Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris was upset by RB LeGarrette Blount’s fumble on the first offensive play of the game.

    The Seymour trade is an example of a trade that worked for both teams. The Raiders got immediate stability for their D-Line and were willing to pay top dollar for his services.

    The Patriots received a first round pick which they used on OL Nate Solder . He’s contributed this year and looks like he can continue in the future. Both organizations should be happy with the outcome.

    Simpson is full of it. Watch the replay. He was planning on that “move”. You could tell by his stutter step to get his feet in the right position. He is darn lucky the defender didn’t just grab the ball and run 100 yards for a score. That move was a selfish “look at me” moment designed to get on the highlight shows. I would have benched him immediately for taking such a stupid risk in a critical game.

    To blame the game clock management on Seneca Wallace is irresponsible, and a cop-out! Shurmur is not HC material – not now, maybe down the road – but he’s as bad as anyone out there right now!

    That Simpson catch was the best play of the decade………….

    CJ Spiller = BUST NO MORE!!!

    If you watch Jerome Simpson’s touchdown while listening to the Indian Song “Lakh Lakh” from 00:26 and further … it’s AWESOME!!!!

    If Takeo Spikes had T.O.’s image he’d be called a cancer!!!

    Remember people, your ability doesn’t matter!!! Just come off as likable (despite possibly being disingenuous) and then you’re greater than Johnny Unitas!!!!
