So it sounds like the Jets have taken Wes Welker's act of wordplay for what it was.
In an apparent response to Welker's use of foot metaphors in his press conference on Thursday — a subtle jab at New York coach Rex Ryan's recent embarrassing video escapade — Jets center Nick Mangold tweeted Friday evening: "Wes Welker is a great player. He's really taken advantage of watching film. If we don't keep a Spy on him, he could really open the Gate."
The reference, of course, is to the 2007 "SpyGate" incident that hit the Patriots, one that was sparked by accusations from the Jets that New England was taping opponents' signals.

Jermaine O'Neal has already met with the Celtics medical staff and he will meet with another doctor Monday to have a second opinion on whether he should have surgery on his knee. O'Neal said he will make an announcement on Tuesday. If he does have surgery it would likely keep him out until the end of the regular season. That, in turn, would make it very difficult for him to return for the playoffs.
"My preference is to play," O'Neal said. "You don't get this opportunity very often. My goal is to continue to play. Surgery is the last option you want to deal with."
