Rodney Harrison, NBC Sports, spoke about how dangerous a healthy Rob Gronkowki is, and how stupid defensive coordinators are, when they continue to try and cover his with ONE guy. Rodney agrees with former teammate Tedy Bruschi, in that he does NOT think Vincent Jackson is a necessary addition.
After a bizarre press conference yesterday, John Idzik was taken to the woodshed by WFAN's Mike Francesa.
NFL Network's, Ian Rapaport, said the Patriots are one of a few teams inquiring about Tampa Bay WR Vincent Jackson. Former Patriot Tedy Bruschi doesn't think it's a great fit. The show takes a look at Bruschi's comments and some of the salary cap ramifications that such a move would make.
The Broncos are clearly the class of the AFC. At 6-2, the Pats record would indicate they they're a close second. But the Colts have more wins against +.500 teams. The Pats have wins against Oakland, Buffalo, the Jets, and Minnesota.

[0:00:14] ... wrote on June 2. That have a lead that goes as follows Tom Brady Peyton Manning Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers the elite quarterback mount Rushmore has been in place for a few years now. But it might be time to wipe. One of those four faces off our mountain of league play but Tom Brady of 2014 no longer belongs on that monument. I don't know whether Sam would agree with me but some of the vagaries Sam writing a column you believed to be true at a particular time can often vary from what is true then purses what is true now you still stand by the fact that Brady is no longer on the mount Rushmore of current NFL quarterbacks.

Long-time WFAN host Mike Francesa went on a rant for the ages on Monday following general manager John Idzik’s press conference and the Jets’ 1-7 start this season — losing seven straight games.

“€œThe owner [Woody Johnson] has to be cringing,”€ Francesa said. “You can’€™t stonewall everybody that way. To go in there and waste 20 minutes of that time telling you how good everybody is when the team is a mortal embarrassment is a waste of time.”

During his press conference, Idzik used a “play like a Jet” phrase. Francesa doesn’t even know what that means.

“What does that mean?” he asked. “Commit a penalty, or fumble the ball, or drop the ball? Which one is that, play like a Jet? We know it’€™s not play well, because we’€™ve all been here all our lives.”

The Jets are coming off a loss to the Bills Sunday where Buffalo rookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins posted 157 yards receiving and a touchdown.

“You know how long it takes a Jets receiver to get 157 yards?”€ Francesa yelled. “Three years.”
