The NFL on CBS crew came across a dance crew in Times Square, and it was just how you’d expect it to be — awkward.
As of Thursday morning, a quick Google search will show you that Brady, not Woody Johnson, owns the Jets.
The Jets aren’t alone. Basically, Brady’s beat almost every team more often than not — the Denver Broncos are the only team with a winning record against him.
The Buffalo Bills have been even worse against Brady than the Jets, with just three wins in 29 games against the quarterback. He has 66 touchdowns against Buffalo — his highest total against any team — but Google lists the Pegulas as the owners of the Bills.
It also says Arthur Blank is the owner of the Atlanta Falcons even though … well, you know.
Sorry, Jets, that’s just a tough break.
In the big picture, the Browns ended up with six draft picks, two of those being first-rounders. Whiffing on both is one of the many reasons why Cleveland is still drafting in the top five three years later.
Jets: There couldn’t be just one “biggest loser” in this draft, because the Jets really gave the Browns a run for their money. Of the 12 draft picks, only two of them are still on the roster — Pryor and sixth-rounder Quincy Enunwa. Second-round TE Jace Amaro did nothing, and neither of the other WR picks (Jalen Saunders, Shaq Evans) amounted to anything. With a complete waste of resources up and down the board, this draft was a fitting end to the Rex Ryan/John Idzik regime.
Colts: They traded their 2014 first-rounder the previous year for Trent Richardson. Whoops.
The Buffalo Bills have a three-way quarterback battle going on between Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel. However, Taylor may have given himself an edge in the competition last night.
Taylor threw some nice passes, but did have some misses. He ultimately completed 5 of 8 passes for 49 yards, with no touchdowns or interceptions, but he did lead two drives that ended with Bills finding the end zone. Where Taylor outshone Cassel was on the ground — he kept the ball six times and went 47 yards. Taylor will get the start in next week’s game.
Next was Manuel, and unfortunately for him, he didn’t look good from the onset. His first drive was a disaster, though Marquise Goodwin did drop the ball and center Alex Kupper had a couple rough snaps, which did him no favors. But at the end of the day, the ball was in Manuel’s hands and he didn’t do much with it.
Though Clowney terrorized opposing quarterbacks in college at South Carolina, a pair of knee surgeries limited him to only four games in his rookie season. He suffered a torn meniscus in the season opener against Washington, and was subsequently placed on the IR in early December to undergo microfracture surgery.
It is tempting to already label Clowney a bust, especially given that he had an injury-riddled junior campaign at South Carolina as well. But his dominance cannot be overlooked, as he recorded 13 sacks, 23.5 tackles for a loss and was named SEC Defensive Player of the Year in 2012.
The Texans have arguably the best defensive line in football even without factoring Clowney into the mix. But if he can line up alongside J.J. Watt and Vince Wilfork with any regularity this season, look out.
