        Good article here by Jets blogger Joe Caporoso pointing out how badly the Jets have built their roster. Essentially, the Jets have spent the most money on the least important positions. They have gone cheap at quarterback, edge rusher, cornerback, and left tackle. They pay heavy for 3-4 defensive linemen, safeties, and guards. Combine that with a history of celebrating non-playoff seasons as moral victories, and you end up with a team that seems like it will go 6-10 until the end of time.

          Wisconsin bar offers free beer until Packers score, really regrets it during shutout

          Wisconsinites love their Green Bay Packers more than anything else, but they love their beer too. So at least something good came out of last Sunday’s Packers game at one Wisconsin bar. According to “As It Happens” on CBC Radio, the Bavarian Bierhaus in Glendale, Wisconsin, has a fun promotion: Free beer during Packers games until they score. With Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, that’s not a big problem for the bar. With Brett Hundley replacing an injured Rodgers quarterback? That’s a lot of free beer, especially last Sunday. The Packers were shut out 23-0 by the Baltimore Ravens last…

          Happy Birthday! 5 ways JuJu Smith-Schuster can celebrate his 21st

          JuJu Smith-Schuster. (Associated Press) JuJu Smith-Schuster, the NFL’s youngest player, turned 21 today, which means that in addition to having a successful rookie campaign and the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 8-2 record, the Steelers’ breakout star has another reason to celebrate. Aside from Smith-Schuster finally being able to (legally) drink alcohol, Shutdown Corner decided to look at a few ways the young receiver can commemorate the special occasion. 1.

          Bills bench Nathan Peterman, turn back to Tyrod Taylor

          After punting a game last week while in the wild-card race, the Buffalo Bills are going back to Tyrod Taylor at quarterback. Last week the Bills made the baffling decision to bench Taylor for fifth-round rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman. It was easy to see that backfiring, but nobody predicted Peterman would be as bad as he actually was. Peterman threw five interceptions in the first half against the Los Angeles Chargers, more than Taylor had thrown in his nine starts combined, and the Bills lost 54-24. Coach Sean McDermott announced Wednesday he’s going back to Taylor. “Tyrod Taylor wil…

        • Jerry Jones backs off litigation threat over Roger Goodell

          Jerry Jones backs off litigation threat over Roger Goodell

          The saber rattling from Jerry Jones appears over. For now. The Dallas Cowboys owner won’t sue the league or its owners, he told USA Today on Tuesday, after making litigation threats over the contract extension of commissioner Roger Goodell. Jones was at odds with Goodell over a laundry list of issues, some of which include the commissioner’s hefty salary, the league office’s stance on players protesting during the national anthem and overall player discipline, particularly the NFL’s controversial handling of Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension. Jerry Jones won’t be hauling his o…

          KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – When the NCAA enacted early football signing dates in December, I was on board.
