New York Jets: No Adjustments Available

It's going to be difficult to find a serious answer for this week's Marshall Faulk question. According to Football Outsiders, the Jets have a 0.5% chance of making the Playoffs. To get the Jets to make the Playoffs, you'd probably need to adjust reality to make one of these cars real instead of a fictional movie creation. Then you could go back in time and hopefully figure out a way for the Jets to have addressed more of their needs in the offseason. Maybe the Jets could get some players for the secondary. Maybe pieces to the passing game could be added so they could not be giving big...

Pats Pulpit Thursday Night Football Open Thread

Come talk about Thursday Night Football with the Pulpiteers! The AFC West is up for grabs tonight as the San Diego Chargers head to Denver to take on the Broncos. At 5-2, the Chargers are coming off a disheartening loss to the divisional rival Chiefs, while the 5-1 Broncos are scorching hot. The game will be on the NFL Network and CBS at 8:25PM. The Chargers will likely be without their top two cornerbacks, which makes them extremely vulnerable to the Broncos passing attack. On the other side of the ball, Philip Rivers is in clear MVP contention and should give the stout Broncos defense a...

What to Do With the Patriots Receivers Aaron Dobson and Brian Tyms

The Patriots have two athletic outside receivers. Where are they in the game plan? The Patriots 2012 second round pick Aaron Dobson was supposed to be the next great Patriots wide receiver. He certainly looked the part before an injury derailed his rookie campaign. He missed a lot of the offseason due to an injury and was clearly behind in the preseason. Brian Tyms is effectively a journeyman in his third NFL season. He has a knack for making the big play, but he was suspended for the first quarter of the season. Still, the coaches believed in him. Dobson played 31 snaps in Week 2 against...

Stephen White: 'Watch out for Ryan Tannehill'

Stephen White: 'Watch out for Ryan Tannehill'

The Miami Dolphins appear to be turning the corner offensively. Former NFL defensive end Stephen White says, it may be time to look out for Ryan Tannehill. The Miami Dolphins are sitting at 3-3 on the season, a game and a half behind the New England Patriots for the AFC East lead. The team has been inconsistent this year, especially when they have the ball, but things may be starting to come together for quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the rest of the offense as they settle into the new scheme being implemented by first year offensive coordinator Bill Lazor. If the past few games are any...

Patriots QB Tom Brady admits he’s not the best runner, but he’s working on it. Against the Jets, Brady rolled out to the left and threw on the run and it was a 19 yard touchdown to WR Danny Amendola. Brady said he has practiced that play before, during the off-season, because he wants to […]

Bills vs. Jets, 2014 NFL Week 8: Marquise Goodwin, Ty Powell longshots to play

Bills vs. Jets, 2014 NFL Week 8: Marquise Goodwin, Ty Powell longshots to play

In addition to Fred Jackson, it's looking very likely that the Buffalo Bills won't have the services of Marquise Goodwin or Ty Powell for Sunday's road game against the Jets. The Buffalo Bills' official Week 8 injury report will come out on Friday afternoon, but it's looking like the team will be without the services of three players on their 53-man roster. We already know that veteran running back Fred Jackson, nursing a groin injury, won't play. He has been joined on the sidelines by two more players over the last two days: wide receiver Marquise Goodwin, who is nursing a tweaked...

Can you watch the Jaguars vs. Dolphins game on Sunday?

Florida has never been so interested. The Jacksonville Jaguars are hosting the Miami Dolphins for Week 8 of the NFL schedule and it's broadcasting pretty much everywhere you'd think it is. Thanks to 506 Sports for the easy-to-read map. The yellow represents markets where the Jaguars-Dolphins game will be on. Every part of Florida except for Tampa Bay is going to be able to tune in because Tampa Bay has some weird NFL rule that won't allow them to broadcast a 1pm game. The announcing for Jacksonville's game will be handled (once again!) by Andrew Catalon, Steve Tasker, and Steve...

Chicago Bears Sackwatch 2014: Week 7 vs. Miami Dolphins

The pass protection of the Chicago Bears has not been good in 2014. The good news for the Sackwatch is that they are still doing better than the Mike Martz and Mike Tice eras. The Chicago Bears finally had their starting five back on the offensive line for the first time since week one, but it didn't matter as they allowed three more sacks to the Miami Dolphins which brings the 2014 Sackwatch up to...

Bills vs. Jets, 2014 NFL Week 8: Buffalo looking to end four-game road skid

The Buffalo Bills have played a lot of ugly football in MetLife Stadium over the last four years. This year, they're looking not only to end that four-game road losing streak to the Jets, but to keep their heads above water in the AFC playoff picture, as well. When the Buffalo Bills take on the New York Jets this Sunday at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, they'll be doing so not only to reach the midway point of the 2014 season at 5-3, but to end a four-game road losing streak against the Jets, as well. The last time the Bills beat the Jets on their home field? 2009, when then-rookie Mark...

Report: New York Jets and Muhammad Wilkerson Not Close to Deal

Report: New York Jets and Muhammad Wilkerson Not Close to Deal

According to Jason Cole, don't hold your breath. There is a report out today from Jason Cole that the New York Jets are not close to a deal yet with Muhammad Wilkerson on an extension. Obviously, this is going to create a great deal of consternation among fans who want to see the team's best player locked up long-term. According to Cole, the team is looking to give Wilkerson money in the range of what Robert Quinn received, which was a six-year, $65.6 million deal that had $41.2 million in guarantees. That isn't enough in guarantees for Wilkerson, according to Cole. Since the team has...

Strikes & Gutters: Week 8 Fantasy Football Advice

How many line-ups must a man put down, before you can say you are no longer in last place? Go big or go home is not a mantra that I typically follow. I did, however try to go out on a limb and pick all sleepers for my strikes last week with varying levels of success. After confessing my fantasy man crush on Fred Jackson, it was inevitable that he would go down with an injury. Sorry, Bills fans. Just kidding, I'm not sorry! I, like the rest of America, don't care about Bills fans. Jackson was on his way to another double digit fantasy day in PPR leagues, before going down in the first...

Dolphins injury report surprisingly clean heading into Jaguars game

The Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars have released their initial injury reports for their Week 8 meeting. The Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars will face off this Sunday in an all-Florida matchup. Both teams released their first injury reports of the week last night, with the Miami report surprisingly clean for this late in the season. The Dolphins had every player practice, some limited, some fully, but everyone was able to conduct at least a portion of the workout. This included safety Jimmy Wilson, who missed practices last week and could not play in last Sunday's win over...

NFL trade deadline: Miami Dolphins moves unlikely, but speculation is fun

The NFL trade deadline is next week. Let's speculate. The NFL trade deadline arrives next week, which means it is time for every team to take one last look at themselves and see if there is that one piece missing that could get them over the hump. Is it a pass rusher? A key offensive lineman? Maybe it is a wide receiver or a cornerback. Whatever it is, by Tuesday of next week, the trade has to be completed. The trade deadline in the NFL is often a whimper, especially compared to the other sports, where Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association are crazy around the...
Jets vs. Bills: Misdirection by Percy

Jets vs. Bills: Misdirection by Percy

I know this has been bordering on becoming a Percy Harvin blog this last week, but you'll have to forgive us. This team is 1-6. It's not easy to find other material to get excited about when the Jets acquire a playmaker. One of the big ways to utilize a Percy Harvin is to try and get the defense moving in one direction and Harvin with the ball using his speed in the other. Here are a few examples of how his teams have done this through the years. On this particular play Marshawn Lynch is lined up directly behind Russell Wilson as the fullback. Harvin is circled behind Lynch. Seattle...
