While Jeff Ireland heart must be hurting after being let go last night by Miami he must have a little smile on his face knowing his good friend Tony Sparano is back coaching in florida with the Tampa Bucs. Man Tampa is putting together quite the coaching the staff under Lovie Smith

@CJ gets two many carries  did some research on the fruit thing about yesterday


I did read its bad for you if you eat a lot of dry fruits cause the sugar turns to fat and there is insane sugar in it ...also eating regular fruits can be fatty - but the more research I did on this it seemed like this applied to people dieting and not hitting the gym like a freak

Globalizing an American sport is not going to work, can we stop imposing ourselves to everyone!

2016: A team in London, one in LA, 18 games, two extra play-off teams..........the NHL lives on

I lobby the only way to add more playoff teams is to add 8 more games to the season to ensure the "proper" teams make it - there should be a huge gap between the frauds and the legits


playoffs should also have its named changed to - if you lose you move to London so don't screw this up

sb name changed to  - stay in America bowl

random thought of the day - recently at the gym - I have been starting to feel like that old guy who stares at young girls - im only 26 (just turned) but even still - I feel like a new crop of "young" (definitely college) girls recently started coming since it got cold out

I seem to recall reports that Marty and Vick didnt like each other when marty joined the Jets. Did time heal?

If you extend the playoffs, then you have to go to basically 2 divisions in each conference, the current format would make no sense at all. Diluting the game doesn't improve it

@billsare4thagain Lovie's teams don't use an offense so Sparano will be perfect. With enough 6 to 3 victories the Bucs could scrap their way into that 7th playoff spot

@iycedout @CJ gets two many carries sugar should never be consumed (since all food contains a good amount) unless you are burning lots of calories every day...and yes dry fruit is basically all the sugar (which doesn't go bad) left from the original

@iycedout geno's play also really went to hell when they forced winters in as a starter. as the OL stabilized he got better and started trusting what he was seeing or not seeing

@iycedout he needs to improve his footwork, and we MUST give him protection and obviously someone not called Salas to pass to

@Luciano11 agreed.  We should stop sending football to the world and the world should stop sending fuutbol to us

@Luciano11the nba will likely have a playoff team in the east that will be 10 games under .500. sometimes less is more

@Luciano11 We can prevent this by moving the Raiders to London and the Browns to LA for a year.  That will kill the interest

@Luciano11 I read yesterday not a team, but everyone will play there at least once per season

@iycedout I really am one of the old guys at the gym.  One of the ways I know I am not the oldest is I have the decency to put a towel around me when heading to and from the shower.  What is wrong with these people?

@iycedoutWelcome to old age, sir. 25/26 was about when I started feeling too old and creepy to ogle the 19 - 20 year old chicks at the gym.

@idothis2 Vick also admitted he doesn't watch film which would ruin the point of hiring a veteran backup to help out Geno.

I bet along with this comes the 18 game season to justify the extra spot

@idothis2@iycedout ya he struggled mightily - gotta expect forcing a T to start at guard his rookie season is going to be bad - but the whole OL played pretty poor this year until the last 4-5 games

@Luciano11@iycedout I agree but I do like the fact that he does well in an uptempo offense - which would describe why at the end of the season we were capitalizing on a lot of our 2 minute drills

@Northshorepsbc@iycedout Decades of repressed homosexuality due to the culture they grew up in forcing upon them their beliefs that it was unnatural, unholy, and morally wrong to be a homosexual. Consequently, they subconsciously act out in homoerotic ways such as exposing themselves to other men in what is perceived as a natural locker room environment.

@ArcherNoles1863@Luciano11@iycedout u know he didn't play a snap? we only played 5 lineman this year


jets had literally 1 injury on the line on both o and d - as far as starters - super rare


and the one injury was colon in week 17

@iycedout @Luciano11 in the first Buffalo game he played almost exclusively in the no huddle, then they went away from it

@Luciano11 also it also shows hes poised and has command over the offense which is nice to know that hes not a complete idiot
