Bills:

In case you missed it, here’s a current look at the Bills injury report:

Jets:

Not saying that any PED associated suspension comes as a surprise anymore, but really Kellen?

Fins:

Last year Miami’s D was the strength of the team.  The results haven’t been quite the same so far, but injuries are part of the reason:

Pats:

Tommy Kelly is out for the Patriots this Sunday.  Joe Vellano has to step up in a big way.

Notes to Note:

A tip of the cap goes to Adrian Peterson for wanting to play on Sunday, but if he does, what will that say about the NFL and the Vikings?  They have a real opportunity to show the public that some things are bigger than a game.

G'morning!

As many people here might remember, I've said Winslow is a bad guy...selfish....conceited...not a team guy and only cares about himself.  He also has his HoF speech prepared.  I said the Jet fans will feel the same at some point.  Now this POS will always be remembered as a steroid head....  Too bad!

@2013Jets Tough game for the Jets this weekend.  Should be a good one

@WOM @2013Jets I'm confident they pull it off. Run game should be even better this week with Ivory and Goodson returning. Ben can make some plays but his weapons are just about as limited as the Jets and the Steelers have almost no run game.

@joeyboy790 Right off the top I can only think of two teams with good/great backups. Dallass and Miami.

@WOM @2013Jets Prolly see Marty move him out of the pocket if pressure gets there early in the game. Pit has only 4 sacks and 0 takeaways on the season. Perfect chance to set the tone for the ret of the season.

@2013Jets @WOM I think you're probably right about the run game in that respect.  Those guys can take a ton of pressure off Geno.  Limiting the amount of decisions Geno has to make would help him in a big way, and also continue to boost his confidence moving forward.

@WOM @2013Jets True. I expect to find out if last week was a fluke or the beginning of the light coming on. Don't think he needs to be perfect but would like to see no more then 1 TO by him.

@2013Jets @WOM The biggest issue I would predict for the Jets is the Steelers defense.  They're slow, but they will show Geno the most exotic looks he's seen so far.  It'll really fall on Geno at the line.  Big test for him I think.
