Adam Jones

His return to the NFL lasted all of six weeks before a scuffle landed him back in Roger Goodell’s doghouse - and earned him an indefinite suspension.

Roy Williams

The Dallas Cowboys lost Jones and their quarterback, Tony Romo, then dulled today’s pain with a big deadline deal for the former Texas wideout.

Patriots

Panic officially has set in in Foxborough, with fans souring on the 3-2 Patriots and Tom Brady’s unknown backup, Matt Cassel.

Tommy Bowden

A wise member of our First Down staff once said Clemson could go unbeaten. That was before their ex-coach led them to an opening-weekend loss.

Matt Stairs

The erstwhile “professional hitter” made a big postseason splash for the Phillies in Game 4 of the NLCS, giving them a 3-1 series lead with his pinch-hit homer.

An excerpt from Thom Loverro’s blog, Lovey Land.

As if the Rams’ 19-17 win over the Redskins didn’t already change the perception of the schedule ahead for Washington, the Cleveland Browns’ stunning 35-14 win over the New York Giants on Monday has put everyone on notice - there are no creampuffs in the NFL this year. Now the Redskins’ upcoming game against the Browns becomes far more uncertain, as does going to Detroit the following Sunday to face the Lions.

I have a theory why it truly is an “Any Given Sunday,” or in this case, Monday, league this year. No one is videotaping anyone. After the Patriots’ Spygate scandal last season, everyone put the cameras down.
