Thread: The NFL

    The three-ring circus heads to the three-ring franchise.

    Week 2: "Brady, hands off to Tebow who rolls right, breaks the tackle, crosses the 5, drops his shoulders and reaches for the line. Touchdown! Jets 6, Patriots 35."

    Cause in my world Tim should be a RB (or TE or FB)....anything but under center. Maybe Bill is listening to McDaniels and they want the upgrade at the third QB slot for cheap and with no money guaranteed (as I imagine Tebow's contract is structured).

    One thing is certain, this is Tebow's last shot at anything meaningful in the NFL.

    If anyone can find a productive role for Tebow, it's Bill Belichik

    Ex-NFL star Chad Johnson gets 30 days in jail

    Johnson, known as Chad Ochocinco for his jersey number in Spanish during his playing days, had reached a deal with
    prosecutors calling for community service and counseling instead of jail. ... It was all set until Johnson, when asked by McHugh if
    he was satisfied with his lawyer Adam Swickle, gave the attorney a light swat on the rear
    ...
    ‘‘I don’t know that you’re taking this whole thing seriously. I just saw you slap your attorney on the backside. Is there something funny about
    this?’’ McHugh said, slapping the plea deal document down on her desk....Johnson, 35, tried to apologize and insisted he meant no disrespect.
    ...‘‘It’s not the first time he’s behaved that way in my courtroom,’’ she said. Johnson then was handcuffed and hauled away to jail.

    Will Ochocinco change his name for 30 days to match his inmate number? It could be unwieldy.

    Two year contract; no guaranteed money. If he stinks, he's cut.

    I think it's a low-risk opportunity for the Patriots to once again rub the Jets' face in it.

    Being the #3 QB is the key to this puzzle. Many other clubs who have no-question starting QBs (like the Packers) have quite shaky #2 guys (like the Packers). Mallet is rock solid at #2 for the Pats and, as Cassel did a few seasons ago, I believe the team could struggle on respectively given the unfortunate absence of Brady.

    No one in the NFL wants Tebow at #1 and, like a gridiron Sarah Palin, no one wants him a thumb sprain away from the starting job either.

    That's if he even makes it. Belichick gets to kick the tires for 3 months without it costing the Pats a penny. Tebow needs to be on the 53 man roster on Sept 3 for this to mean a thing.

    He may not even be the #3 QB. The Pats lost Danny Woodhead to the Chargers, and while they are certainly different style players, I can see Belichik envioning him in a similar role - third down, specialist who can run the ball and maybe even catch a pass while focusing on special teams.

    Tebow is an athlete and does have skills. Just QB skills.

    New England Patriots owner: "Putin stole my Super Bowl ring" .

    The last thing I would do when in the company of belly crawling slime like Vladimir Putin would be (particularly when on his turf) to offer a 'try-on' of my 250,000 dollar diamond encrusted ring. If this is not the most perfect - and humiliating - indication of how far we have fallen as a nation: I don't know what Patriot even means - what irony.

    So he'll be out on bail for the entire 2013-14 season and on the Patriots roster. After the Super Bowl he'll finally make a court appearance after which his $800/hour lawyer will get him acquitted on all charges because the gloves didn't fit

    Sort of like Plaxico Burris.

    Article states that Pats released Hernandez.

    Funny how things often come full circle.

    The Patriots took two TEs in the 2010 draft. Rob Gronkowski was regarded as damaged goods. Hernandez had character issues, and as a result, dropped to the 4th round.

    They were a potent one-two punch with Brady, and the Pats looked like geniuses.

    Today there's probably a lot of finger pointing. Gronkowski has had four surgeries on his arm and one on his back last year, and he will open training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list. Whatever character issues Hernandez had, they seem to have exploded.

    Guess I missed the part about him getting released. He'll be meeting with Woody Johnson any day now
