NFL fines Jets' Smith $7,500 for Welker hit

The NFL fined Jets safety Eric Smith $7,500 for his head shot hit on Patriots receiver Wes Welker in the first quarter of last Sunday's game at the Meadowlands. 

 

The NFL ruled that Smith, who was targeting Welker on a crossing pattern over the middle, unnecessarily struck a receiver in a defenseless position and handed down the fine. Welker walked off under his own power and was given several functional tests by Patriots doctor Thomas Gill on the sideline before being cleared to re-enter the game. 

 

The Jets were penalized 15 yards for unnecessary roughness on the play and Patriots coach Bill Belichick was animated his discussion of the play at the time with a side judge. Smith remained in the game and was not suspended for this week's game against the Dolphins. 

 

No Patriots players were fined this week.

Light: Second half improvements 'critical'
By: DJ Bean

Patriots tackle Matt Light joined The Big Show to discuss the team's upcoming game with the 0-2 Bills and the Pats' most recent loss to the Jets. On the subject of the Jets game, one in which they went into halftime with a 14-10 lead but were outscored 18-0 in the second half en route to a 28-14 defeat, Light said the team needs to work to prevent the types of second-half road collapses that plagued them a season ago. 

 

"Is this going to be a trend? God, I'd hope not," Light said. "I'd hate to think we went through tall this effort in the offseason and all the work we put in in camp and everything else, to come out and play like that. I've got confidence in the guys in that room. We've had a heck of a week this week, I can tell you that much."

 

"We've put a lot of time in and we'll make it a strong emphasis to come out not only firing in the opener to kick things off, but obviously coming out...

Taylor on D&H: 'Going to miss' Faulk

Patriots running back Fred Taylor made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Friday afternoon and indicated he will be ready to go Sunday vs. the Bills. "I feel good," he said of his condition.

 

Asked if his role would change in Kevin Faulk's absence, Taylor said his role is to do what is asked of him. "My role is the same, and it's going to always be the same," he said. "Whatever they ask me to do, I'm going to try my best to do it. I'm going to give 110 [percent] at it."

 

Taylor said Faulk was always in the weight room before the other players arrived, and his work ethic was unmatched. "He's definitely underrated, definitely the best at what he does," Taylor said. "We're going to miss that. We're going to miss the positiveness that he always had. … You've got to admire somebody like that."

King on D&H: Jets have 'combustible group'

Sports Illustrated NFL columnist Peter King made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Friday morning. Asked if the Patriots' collapse vs. the Jets was indicative of a bigger problem, King said: "No, I don't think so. You always have to be careful about a small sample size when you look at a season." King said the biggest factor was how important the game was to the Jets. "That was a desperate, desperate New York Jets team," King said.

 

On the topic of Braylon Edwards' DUI arrest, King said: "I do think that the bigger issue right here is the Jets' handling of the situation." King notes that the problem started with the Jets' offseason maneuverings. "The surprising thing to me is that people are shocked that things like this happen," he said. "They put a combustible group of players together. And when you do that, combustible things happen."
