Ray Lewis gives an impassioned speech to the rioting citizens of Baltimore. Also, news broke that the Jets will be fined 100K for the tampering of Darrelle Revis, but no draft picks will be surrendered.
Christian's favorite player, Brock Holt, spoke about John Farrell's transparency regarding his role with the team, and the confidence that he and his fellow position players has in the starting rotation.

Manish Mehta in NY Daily NewsThe Darrelle Revis tampering case that infuriated the Patriots came to a conclusion on Tuesday when the NFL doled out its version of justice.

A league source told the Daily News that the Jets will be fined $100,000, but will not be docked any draft picks for Woody Johnson‘s comments that he’d “love to have Darrelle back” at a December press conference. At least one other team will be fined for what the league deemed tampering this offseason, according to the league source. …

The Jets signed Revis to a blockbuster 5-year, $70 million deal this offseason after he helped the Patriots win a fifth Super Bowl in the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady era.

Since Manish Mehta basically takes dictation from Jets’ ownership and passes it off as journalism, he can be forgiven for thinking the Patriots have won five Super Bowls. Or maybe he’s just getting ahead of himself, posting next year’s Jets convicted of tampering article, the one that will come out after the Pats win Super Bowl 50 and they do it again.

By now you may no doubt be saying “Gee, Jer. Your genius is unparalleled and all, but how can you sit here and say the Jets will tamper again?”

Because, as the world loves to say about the Patriots – incorrectly – with the Jets there is a pattern here. In fact this is their third conviction for cheating:

And that doesn’t even include the other tampering allegations where the Jets escaped punishment:

  • In 2006 Deion Branch was in a contract holdout and the Jets discussed with Branch’s agents what they were willing to offer in a trade for him. The Pats filed tampering charges and traded him to Seattle, but the league took no action.
  • In 2009 the 49ers also dimed the Jets out for tampering with their wide receiver Michael Crabtree. Again, they got away with no discipline from the league.

So there’s your “pattern.” The kind that doesn’t exist with the Patriots given that they’ve got one conviction for pointing a camera at the Jets’ coaches in the non-designated-pointing-cameras area and one pending investigation for air pressure in footballs that’s gone nowhere for almost 100 days. That’s it. Their entire rap sheet.

But the Jets now have their third felony conviction for cheating, just since Spygate. All under the same ownership. Granted it’s a slap on the wrist. And if justice was really served they’d be punished under some sort of “three strikes and you’re out” policy and New England would be awarded their draft picks. And Woody Johnson would be suspended or worse.

But on the other hand, as a friend of mine pointed out, the way the Jets draft, the worst punishment for them might be to just let them have all their picks. Cheaters.

Meet Bryan Sperry. 89-year-old former Kansas Jayhawk, flanker for the 1948 Orange Bowl team, veteran of World War II and certified badass.

And while I appreciate Kansas letting him play in the alumni game, there is no excusing this. You don’t lay down and let the Bryan Sperry’s of the world score on you. You make them. It’s an insult to the manhood of guy like him to step aside and allow him to walk into the endzone. He’d rather you give him your best and make him earn it. He’s the greatest generation. Those guys were razors. Nobody gave them anything ever, and they’re not about to start now. Do you think the Germans just let them waltz through France and on into Berlin? No. They earned every inch of ground they gained with blood, sweat, Nazi tears and the cognac they spilled while seducing French girls. You give Bryan Sperry your best shot and he makes you pay. That’s how you treat a legend.

Godspeed, Bryan Sperry. You can drink from my canteen anytime.

Joe Kelly gave up 3 runs in the 1st inning but settled down. Koji rebounded with a 1-2-3 top of the ninth, which set the stage for Mookie Betts to get a walk-off single in the bottom.

Did you ever notice that something happens to a man when he runs afoul of Bill Belichick? Some kind of shellshock overtakes them, like the stress of doing battle against an opponent that is superior in every way debilitates them and they become bumbling idiots.

I mean, look at Charley Casserly here. He can’t answer a question. He can’t tell the difference between rehearsal, taping or live TV. He’s a shell of a man ever since that time five years ago when Belichick came on WEEI and ripped him for telling the world that Tom Brady was playing with three broken ribs:

“Who’s been wrong more than Charley Casserly since he left the Redskins? His percentage is like a meteorologist. He has no relationship to this team. I’d say less than zero. Based on what? He’s never at a practice, never at a game. … At least he put his name on it, which is more than a lot of guys. But, like he usually is, he was 100 percent wrong.”

And now you see the result. Casserly has been reduced to a confused, drooling, doddering shadow of himself, his brain wiped clean like he’s been mind-probed by some species of higher intelligence.

So let this be a lesson to all those lesser beings in the NFL. You Spygate truthers, Deflategate McCarthyites and assorted witch hunters who get rules changed to try to defeat Belichick, this is what happens to his enemies. Proceed at your own caution.
