New York Jets
Coaches are the talk of the town – and the league – as the 2013 NFL regular season begins to wind down. There is a lot of discussion as to who will be back next season, who won’t be back, and what kind of decisions are being made as a possible playoff run waits in the wings.
This is yet another “bizarro” season in the NFL but it is in a different way than it was last season when random bad teams were trashing good teams. Now, there is a lot of unexpected news coming out of different NFL cities and the stories may not be explained any time soon.
There were a number of big headlines from Sunday’s action, and sometimes they need to be broken down to make sense of everything. Some of those headlines include gruesome injuries, a rookie finding the pine, and a storm delaying a game for almost two hours.
Injuries can cause a player to take time off from their team and sometimes that means the entire season. When injuries heal, it is time for those players to return and hopefully make a return sooner rather than later. For others? Injuries can mean coming full circle back to the place where it all began.
Fans in New York never want to abandon thoughts of the postseason this early into any season. As frustrated as they may be, the hope of a postseason run remains in the minds of the fans of both New York NFL teams.
NFL football is always looked at as a violent sport, and it is due to the hard-hitting, big-time smacks, and all around tackling. One big problem is when some coaches and/or players take it a bit too far and start getting too serious.
With the midway point of the season almost here, the AFC is a strange place to be. On Sunday, the Patriots welcomed back Rob Gronkowski, but lost their second game of the season. The fans of the Indianapolis Colts welcomed back their shunned quarterback. Finally, the Kansas City Chiefs remained unbeaten.
Major League Baseball is getting into the postseason and that means some NFL games are going to suffer the consequences. Speaking of consequences, the New England Patriots are dealing with a big one while Jets QB Geno Smith may suffer none.
Week two of the 2013 NFL season is all set, but there are a couple of big-time players that may miss a lot more of it than they expected. One of them will be gone due to an unnecessary injury and the other due to his lack of judgment. Don’t get too unruly over all this though or some undercover Seahawk cops might nab you.
Week one of the 2013 NFL season is just about complete, and the first Sunday of this new year brought forth just about everything that an NFL could want. There were upsets, divisional match-ups, last second finishes, and some great outings by amazing players.
