I'm sure Jon Vilma knows a good lawyer or ten if the Bennetts need to take the NFL to court

But yeah it wouldn't shock me if that weasel Schiano complained about tampering, he likes to stick his beak into everywhere it doesn't belong. Plus this is more blatant tampering than most other cases because it's public.

Definitely could use an upgrade to the D line. The Giants live and die by the pass rush, and right now it's not doing so hot.

He's good depth but nothing spectacular and with Tuck ageing and Osi about to be shown the door we're gonna need to pick up 2 new ones this spring.

Its always nice to see deserving guys get in for first time ,, They generally seem happy to find out they are Pro Bowl bound

DT Henry Melton and CB Tim Jennings for Bears both made first time and seem happy about the recognition for there good seasons

Part of reason I think they should just name teams and not have game ,, That way guys like Brady/etc dont just back out and lesser players take there place

Name an AFC/NFC team of Pro Bowlers as honor/achievement for good season and then thats it

The actual game is the problem (+ Fan voting)

I agree. Have coaches/GMs vote on teams. Acknowledge who the All-Stars are and be done with it. No need for the game itself.

There was a show on ESPN called the gridiron games if anyone remembers it. They had a whole bunch of challenges that were cool to watch. Obstacle/relay courses, QB's hitting moving targets at various distances, kickers playing HORSE with trick shot field goals, WR's catching balls out of machines in rapid succession, 40 yard dash champion, etc. Hell of a lot more entertaining than the Pro Bowl. Baffeld that the league hasn't done this yet.

The Pro Bowl is a travesty. Probably the All-Star game least like the actual sport. Baseball is the best about it, basketball is second, the non-checking hockey version is still watchable, but the touch football game called the Pro Bowl is dreadful.

So apparently McElroy lied about being ok and now Sanchez is playing again......

Why must athlete's lie about how they feel...especially when they may have a concussion???

Sanchez back starting brings a giant smile to my face. I love the Jets. Just when I think the laughs are over they come out for an encore. Why does this season ever have to end?

Because it was McElroy's 'only' chance to prove he could play? Blame Harbaugh and the way Alex Smith lost his job for that one.

Fear of losing there jobs is one thing ,, Guys who dont have established starting role many times wont tell coaches/etc of concussion because they fear they will lose it

Others just want to play no matter what so they try to get around concussion tests

Also poor Jet fans having to watch Sanchez out there again ,, At least it isn't a home game so Sanchez and Jets might do well not getting boo'd entire game on offense

I hear Foles got hurt and now Vick will be playing next week. This should be interesting.

Total number of picks thrown in the Bills/Jets game: Over/under 6.5?

I'm going under. But only because I hold out hope that for some reason they will call the game early. Hopefully they'll just end it at half time. For the sake of humanity.

Over. I hope Sanchez gets hurt, nothing serious, but just something that forces Rex Ryan into a backup QB decision. I hope Tebow gets his chance and wins the game.

'If' Tebow gets in Rex is going to run the Glenn Davis/Doc Blanchard Army offense as long as possible.

If Tebow comes in, be it for a wild cat play, or if Sanchez gets hurt, I want him to air out a deep ball on the first play. No real reason. I just think it will be fun. And when it gets picked off, at least the Bills will be 40 yards down the field.

Tebow has been very accurate in the few passes he's thrown this year. His two incompletions were a wide open drop, and a throw away to avoid a sack.
