It took only a matter of seconds for Plaxico Burress to familiarize himself in the N.Y. Jets offensive scheme for 2012. Burress’ reception for 20 yards on the games first play was a clear indicator that this Jet was cleared and ready for takeoff. Burress would finish the game with 3 receptions for 66 yards including a touchdown in the Jets 27-7 rout of the Cincinnati Bengals.

The time hasn’t come to start praying for miracles just yet — but the Philadelphia Eagles are still a work in progress. It was only as bad as it looked in certain areas on last Thursday night as the Eagles first and second teams struggled against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Many are worried about Michael Vick’s three INTs in the game, my worry is that Vick looks to be a better tackler than Asante Samuel.
Has the Buffalo Bills Shawne Merriman returned to form? It looks like the light may have come back on for the linebacker known as “Lights Out”. It’s been a rough stretch for Merriman who has dealt with everything from a League suspension for steroid use to numerous injuries. He signed with the Buffalo Bills in January and although he’s moved from beaches to snow banks it looks like Merriman is out to prove that his motor is more revved and better than before. There isn’t much to look forward to in Buffalo this season, but Merriman does make the defense worth watching.
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay Tweets: “Brad, I’m in Hattiesburg…is it right or left at the Firechief?” *GULP* I just did a Google search and there’s only one Hattieburg in the United States…
How hot is the seat for Tom Coughlin in Gotham? They passed on bringing Plaxico Burress back, they lost Steve Smith to the hated Eagles and are currently at war with defensive end Osi Umenyiora. I won’t say that the seat is so much hot as is possibly tiring for Coughlin to sit by and deal with anymore of the headaches in the Giants organization.
Anyone that follows the site knows that I’ve been pulling for the Houston Texans to break into the post-season for two years now. Do they finally break through or should I look for some other team to jinx?
