The Jets accepted the NFL’s offer to host the Thanksgiving night game this year, sources confirmed Tuesday. Kickoff will be 8:20 p.m. The NFL will make the announcement on Monday at the league meetings in Orlando when it will also name the opponent for that game and the Jets’ opponent for the Monday night opener on Sept. 13. The rest of the schedule comes out in April.
Great decision by the NFL and I commend the Jets for accepting. This should give the Jets a shot at around 5 prime-time games in 2010. I also plan on being in New Jersey for Thanksgiving weekend, so with any luck I’ll be able to land some tickets to this game.
Today is a sad day. A day that has been coming since Brady Quinn was drafted to the Cleveland Browns. The Browns once again let me down, trading Brady Quinn to the Denver Broncos. Quinn is replaced by Jake Delhomme, and a few picks they received from Denver.
In a lot of ways this feels to me like history repeating itself. I remember that spring day in 2004 when the Browns signed Jeff Garcia and he was going to be the answer to all the problems at the QB position. They ousted Tim Couch in such a classless manner that he had a cause for lawsuit. The exile another guy who loved being a Brown and a guy who’s time ran out here far before it ever had the chance to see a return on all the hopes and dreams we had on fans. It’s extremely unfortunate, and it will not end as a good decision.
I wrote about Brady restoring dignity to this franchise and taking us to the promised land so many times. 2007 seems like so long ago. It’s never going to happen now, but it wasn’t for lack of effort on Quinn’s part. The guy was a class act until the end and I will miss him. More then anything, I wish he would have just had a real run here. Like so many things in sports and more markedly; Cleveland Browns history, it just wasn’t meant to be.
So long Brady. Thank you so much.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that LaDanian Tomlinson will meet with the New York Jets on Friday after a meeting with the Minnesota Vikings today.
Tomlinson has already stated that he would have no problem with a reduced role.
This would be an excellent move for the NY Jets. Tomlinson could experience a revival in a tired career spelling Shonn Greene and running behind a monstrous run-blocking line.

Looks like we’re in the final hours
of Brady Quinn being a Cleveland Brown. I can say this much: I’ll never, ever, come back as a fan of this franchise for as long as I live. Never.
I love the sport of the NFL. I love the orange helmet, the city by the lake, the colors, the whole underdog and heartbreak shit that Cleveland portrays in every vaudeville act. But I swear on my life the moment they trade Brady Quinn; I’m done with the Browns forever.
They mis-handled Tim Couch. And they’ve mis-handled this situation from almost day one. They cast Quinn off while the organization hangs onto guys like Eric Mangini and Brian Daboll? They don’t worship Christ, they reward the Devil in Cleveland’s front office.
Honestly, the fans deserve a winner. But that organization does not. Starting with that spineless, weird fuck Randy Lerner. Mike Holmgren, Eric Mangini, Daboll, Lerner, they can all piss up a rope. I’m done with this loser franchise that will never taste the oils of victory at the level they think they’re headed. It will always be a mirage, and always one too many bad decisions. They run their ‘company’ very poorly.
I can’t wait until Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets go into Cleveland Browns Stadium and take refuge of the fucking place like every other guest has the past decade.
Loser franchise, always has been and always will be. Brady, thanks for always being the good solider and giving it your all. You know as well as most do that you’re lucky to be getting out.
I’ll be back to blogging about the NFL soon enough. It’s going to be a New York Jets focus on the blog I think; with the way the Browns are handling Brady Quinn.
Taking some time off from the NFL to write about baseball, but I’ll be back around the NFL draft to update and dive into things full-go.
