Rex Hasn't Lost His Sense Of Humour - Asks Watkins Not To Play

One thing I loved about Rex when he arrived in New York was his big personality. He was a man who knew how to laugh and enjoy his job, a job I'm sure he feels privileged to do. Recently there hasn't been much to laugh about, however we saw a little retro Rex yesterday as he hopped on the conference call with Sammy Watkins. Rex was making his way to his usual press conference when he walked past the media room. Sammy Watkins was on speaker phone and he was talking about the Jets defense. Naturally Rex wanted to hear what he had to say so he stopped and listened intently. Watkins is of...

Darrelle Revis tardy excuse kept him out of practice

Patriots number one corner Darrelle Revis overslept Tuesday morning but was told to stay home instead of showing up late. Whoops. He was back at practice today, but was nowhere to be seen yesterday after his long snooze. Revis did show up to meet privately with Belichick after the players had left, according to sources. Revis was asked […]

Bills at Jets Wednesday Injury Report

Bills at Jets Wednesday Injury Report

Who is hurt? The New York Jets had six players limited in practice on Wednesday. Only rookie OLB Trevor Reilly did not practice after missing last weeks game. Reilly is a late-round pick who has had zero impact on the team so far, even if he does not play on Sunday the Jets won't be missing him very much. Eric Decker, Phillip Adams, Willie Colon, and David Harris are among the more important players who were limited in practice for the Jets. The Buffalo Bills have placed RB CJ Spiller on short-term injured reserve. Power back Fred Jackson is also expected to miss 1-2 weeks for the Bills...

Jets vs. Bills: Percy Harvin Might Return Punts

Rex Ryan indicated today his team's newest acquisition might take an unusual role. Rex said #Jets will consider using Percy Harvin on punts -- "strongly." — Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) October 22, 2014 Harvin has never returned a punt in the NFL. I still feel like this is worth a shot. Harvin is on this team to make big plays with the ball in his hand so the Jets might as well try to do that every chance they get. The Jets really haven't had a ton of juice in their return game this year. At points just catching the ball has been a challenge. With an inexperienced punt returner...

Jets vs. Bills: Buffalo's John B Ratio

Below are the John B Ratios for players on the Buffalo Bills. The John B Ratio measures how frequently a team throws and runs when a given player is in the game.

NFL Trade Deadline: Would Aaron Dobson make sense for Giants?

NFL Trade Deadline: Would Aaron Dobson make sense for Giants?

The Patriots aren't using wide receiver Aaron Dobson. Should the Giants ask about his availability? The NFL Trade Deadline is less than a week away and the New York Giants have a bye this week. Is there a better way to fill the time than with some trade speculation? So, let's name drop. Would little-used New England Patriots wide receiver Aaron Dobson make sense as a trade target for the Giants? Dobson might make sense for the Giants, who have lost both Victor Cruz and Jerrel Jernigan to season-ending injuries. The Patriots drafted him in the second round, 59th overall, last season. He...

Pleased to Meet You: Week 8, New England Patriots

The Bears take on the Patriots in Week 8; we're previewing this week's matchup. With the Bears reeling, a suddenly recovered and white-hot New England Patriots team is exactly the opposite of what the team ordered. But, if the Bears are going to make it back to .500, taking down New England is what they'll have to do. Last Year: Finished first in the AFC East (yawn) with a 12-4 record (yawn). In the playoffs, they beat the Colts in the divisional round (yawn) before falling to the Broncos in the AFC Championship Game (yawn). This Year: They still lead the AFC East (yawn) with a 5-2 record -...

Bill Polian a finalist for Pro Football Hall of Fame

Former Buffalo Bills general manager Bill Polian is one of two finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in the new Contributor category. This past August, we lamented the fact that no more Buffalo Bills would be entering the Pro Football Hall of Fame for quite some time. It turned out we were probably pretty wrong. The Hall of Fame created a new category honoring "Contributors" - people that have influenced the game but not as players - and former Bills general manager Bill Polian is one of the two finalists. Peter King wasn't on the committee to choose the contributor nominees but had...

Bills vs. Jets, 2014 NFL Week 8: Kraig Urbik taking over at left guard

It's looking like Kraig Urbik will be the Buffalo Bills' starting left guard in Week 8 against the New York Jets. He'll become the fifth different starting left guard in the 24-games-long Doug Marrone era in Buffalo. It's looking like the Buffalo Bills will field their third different starting left guard of the still-young 2014 season when they take on the New York Jets this Sunday: veteran Kraig Urbik worked in ahead of rookie Cyril Richardson with the first-team offense at the outset of practice on Wednesday.

Bills vs. Jets, 2014 NFL Week 8: game time, TV schedule, announcers, & more

The Buffalo Bills have not beaten the New York Jets on the road since 2009. They'll take another stab at it on Sunday; here's how you can catch that game on television and the radio. The 4-3 Buffalo Bills are in the thick of the AFC playoff chase, but in order to stay there, they'll need to continue to perform well in the conference, on the road, and especially in the division. They'll have a chance to pick up a victory in all three categories when they travel to take on the 1-6 New York Jets this Sunday. It may not be easy, despite the disparity in the teams' records; Buffalo has not...
