Rex Ryan has introduced a new drill to the New York Jets training came.
Dizzy Bat Race.
Yep, that same dizzy bat race that is used to have drunken fun is now being used to train professional athletes. For what, though? Perhaps Rex wants his players to be able to play concussed?
In the second quarter of the Buffalo Bills eventual victory over the New York Jets, a fan in the third deck of Ralph Wilson Stadium was trying to slide down what looked to be a handrail of some sort. Towards the end of his journey, he lost his balance and flipped backwards over the rail, plummeting down on to a fan in the section below. What is crazy about the entire thing is that CBS, almost certainly unbeknownst to them, caught the entire thing on camera and showed it live.
The unidentified male who fell sustained a shoulder injury while his cushion sustained a head injury. The police report for the injury will not be available until later this morning but one can almost assume with great certainty that alcohol had something to do with it.
Greg McElroy started last week for the Jets and pretty much spent the majority of the day on his back. He was sacked 11 times, so it was no surprise that he was having headaches this week while lifting. The training staff has diagnosed him with concussion symptoms and will shut him down for this week.
The next logical thing, you would think, would be to assume that Tim Tebow would get his shot at the starting gig.
New York Jets super fan, Fireman Ed, has written his letter of resignation. The problem is not many people know what he is retiring from. This is a man who dons a fireman’s hat and a Jets jersey and “leads” the Jets faithful in what he calls “the greatest chant in all of sports”. I am willing to bet that the chant will still be there, with or without him, and it will suck just as much as it does now. Well, since Fireman Ed has written a letter, I figured I would write him one. He doesn’t know how good he has it.
