A pair of missed field goals and a muffed PAT by Jets K Mike Nugent loom awfully large in Nashville, where the Titans have erased a 16-0 deficit to tie the game in the 4th quarter.
(Update : Pennington, 38 yard pass to Coles…followed by a 6 yard TD pass to Chris Baker in traffic. Nugent splits the uprights — wango tango, etc., Jets 23, Titans 16)
Congrats to Bill Belichick on his 100th career victory. Doesn’t give the guy the right to exploit his friendship with Bon Jovi in order to bang someone else’s wife, but that’s for the courts to decide.
KC QB Trent Green suffered a brutal hit during the Chiefs’ 23-10 loss to the Bengals. The good news : Green’s conscious and all of his limbs are moving. The bad news : he’s answering to the name of Pat LaFontaine.
At the risk of sounding really mean spirited (and supporting child labor), I’m really enjoying those Nike commercials where we’re supposed to believe that Don Shula cranks the Creation at practice. What could be funnier than Brian Urlacher pummelling children?
