Dang, you lock it down to crank out one mailbag and the NFL blows up. Tebow to the Jets for a 4th round pick. AKA, nothing for nothing. And, Roger Goodell just absolutely b-slapped the Saints for the bounties. Head coach Sean Payton is suspended without pay for 1 year. Gregg Williams is suspended from the NFL indefinitely. The Saints lose two 2nd round draft picks. Their GM is suspended for 8 games. Good luck in 2012, New Orleans!
I can’t find the particulars of Payton’s contract, but we’re talking about a 4+ million dollar hit. That stings, as does a year away from football. Are the Saints going to stand by their men here? I think Roger Goodell is a bit power-hungry, a bit of a mad man when handing out these punishments. And, of course there will be backlash from the people who view his punishment to New England for “spygate” as a slap on the wrist compare to what the Saints now have to deal with.
As far as Tebow is concerned? My goodness, NY. The Jets are on a steady decline and are doing everything they can to mess with Mark Sanchez. We want Peyton! Nevermind, take this extension! Trade for Tebow! I feel like this is going to end badly. Probably with Tebow at the helm and with Rex Ryan looking for another job.
