Michael Vick killed dogs; the Eagles welcomed him in. Riley Cooper publicly screamed the n-word; Eagles kept him. Ray Lewis was guilty of obstruction of justice in a murder case that you do not have to look far to realize he had more to do with; Ravens were so put off by this, they built their team around him as their face and leader of the franchise. Ben Roethlisberger was involved in a rape case that led to a civil suit which was “settled”; the Steelers, the NFL bastion of civility, kept him on after a 4-game suspension (even lowered by the NFL from 6). Leonard Little committed a DWI manslaughter and the Rams overlooked it – just as they did when he committed yet another DWI later in his career.
But Michael Sam, committing no crimes, but daring to be himself, an openly gay man, is a distraction. Continue reading
The Seattle Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers 23-17 to advance to Super Bowl 48 on a last-minute

To make it easy on everyone who wants to know, here is a handy list of every person the Jets have brought to, or have wanted to bring to Florham Park this offseason:
The Emotional Bowl:
The Colts come into this game riding the momentum of one of the greatest rookie QB seasons of all time, by Andrew Luck.
But their story all season has been about Chuckstrong; supporting their head coach Chuck Pagano, who had been fighting Cancer for most of the season.
I won’t say it. This Jets team doesn’t deserve it.
A month ago, there was no reason to believe the word should ever be uttered again.
A team that has sputtered, made terrible mistakes, encountered injury after injury, has a lemon of a foundation, and has only been consistent in being awful offensively…they should be dead in the water.

Last time the Jets traveled to Seattle to face the Seahawks, it was a different team with Brett Favre at the helm. It was a loss, which ultimately helped keep the ball rolling for a Jets collapse and them missing the playoffs in Favre’s only season in NY.
