    You're not going to believe this... but the #Jets are planning to release RB Knile Davis (again) as they finalize a deal for RB CJ Spiller.

    Are we good with Bibbs or should we look at Davis if he gets released?

    Here's an article about it:

    Jets to release RB Knile Davis only hours after signing

    Itís been a whirlwind few weeks for Knile Davis. As if all of the moving around wasnít enough though, Tuesday had to be especially frustrating for the fourth-year running back, as for the second time in two days, he found himself out of a job.

    Earlier on Tuesday, the Jets announced they had signed Davis, which it seemed would bring his travels to an end for the remainder of the season at least. Yet as Ian Rapoport for the NFL Network reported not long after that news broke, the Jets have apparently had a change of heart and are planning to release Davis as they finalize a deal with free-agent running back C.J. Spiller.

    It has to be depressing for Davis, who must be beginning to feel like the most unwanted player in the NFL. Only two weeks ago, the 2012 third-round draft pick was traded from the Chiefs to the Packers for a conditional seventh-round pick, then on Monday was waived after two games with his new team.

    Once Davis cleared waivers, the Jets swooped in, but apparently have already had a change of heart.

    While itís unfortunate, Davis has not been very effective as a ball carrier in his career, averaging 3.3 yards per carry, nor is he an exceptional receiver out of the backfield. Fumble issues marred his first two seasons in the league as well.

    Still, you never want to see a player jerked around like this, especially the way the Jets went about their business today. This move right here is a sure sign of organizational disarray, not that it should come as any surprise in 2016.

    Funniest Call I have seen by a ref in Ages!

    Thought I'd share this link. Ref calls false start on all lineman but the C.

    Very funny.

    Haha! Sometimes these refs get tongue-tied or lose their thoughts with the mic on, and hilarity ensues. My personal favorite is still the ref who elaborated on a personal foul call by saying "He was giving him the business!"

    Darren Sharper Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison

    Thank God. Too bad he didn't get life in prison without the possibility of parole. He's the scum of the earth and should never be allowed to walk the face of the earth.

    http://abc7.com/news/ex-nfl-star-dar...rapes/1630775/


    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Former NFL star Darren Sharper was sentenced to 20 years behind bars and ordered to register for life as a sex offender on Tuesday for drugging and raping two women he met at a West Hollywood nightclub.

    Sharper, 41, will serve the time concurrently with a sentence handed down in Louisiana for similar crimes. He was given credit for 2,017 days already served.

    Officials stated Sharper raped as many as 16 women in California, Arizona, Louisiana and Nevada.

    In March 2015, he pleaded no contest to two counts of rape by the use of a drug and four counts of furnishing a controlled substance. Under a plea deal, a count of possession of morphine and allegations about the rape were dismissed. He received similar agreements in Arizona, Nevada and Louisiana.

    The L.A. charges come from two separate sexual assaults. The first was on Oct. 30, 2013, when Sharper brought two women from a West Hollywood nightclub and invited them to a party. Instead, he first stopped at his hotel room with the women and gave each one a drink with the sedative zolpidem.

    One of the women said she woke up naked hours later while Sharper was emotional when she made her statement.

    "I would have nightmares of him raping me or killing me. It got so bad, I couldn't sleep," she said. "Today, I stand here knowing Darren Sharper will never take something so precious from another woman again."

    In the second incident, which happened Jan. 14, 2014, Sharper met another pair of women at the same nightclub and same events from the first sexual assault took place. He invited two women to a party but instead took them to his hotel room, where he gave them drinks.

    The women woke up hours later, and one said she believes she was sexually assaulted, according to details from the District Attorney's Office.

    Sharper was a six-time All-Pro player, five-time Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champion during his career which included stops with the New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings.

    The defense back retired from the NFL in 2011 and was working as an NFL network analyst.

    Sharper became eligible for the National Football Hall of Fame in 2016.

    20 years is a joke. That essentially makes the going rate for serial rape around 1 year in prison per rape. I don't think concurrent sentences are appropriate for 1st degree felonies like rape and murder. I agree with Broncoslover, Sharper shouldn't be allowed to walk the earth as a free man again, but hopefully 2 decades in prison makes him think about everything he threw away, and everyone he hurt.

    Jeff Fisher Gets Contract Extention...WOW...Only In America!!!

    In my opinion, he should have been fired the second they decided to move back to LA. Oh, well...he's another team's and fan base's problem.


    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...year-extension


    In his first four seasons with the Rams, Fisher has guided the team to records of 7-8-1, 7-9, 6-10, and 7-9. The Rams currently sit at 4-7 with a difficult schedule down the stretch. Fisher hasn't led a team to a winning season since 2008 and has just six seasons in his 22-year coaching career with more than eight victories.

    Brilliant move. Keep Fisher as a scapegoat for the next two years and then fire him just in time to open the new Los Angeles stadium. Sell tickets with the new coach, hyping the dawn of a new era.



    Or Kroenke is an idiot.

    The bad beat to end all bad beats

    A person in Las Vegas put $5 on a 15-team parlay this weekend to win $100,000.

    Heading into Monday Night's game he/she was 14-0, only needing the Patriots to cover minus-7.

    The Patriots led 23-3 midway through the 3rd quarter, as well as 30-20 with 2 minutes to play, but thanks to the last field goal only won by 7 points.

    On most parlays the bettor would push the final game, and the parlay would drop down to a 14-team parlay (still a massive payday).

    However, this parlay was of the "Ties Lose" variety, and the person won absolutely nothing.

    Lesson- Gambling is cruel....
