    Probably one of the few episodes of the "The Brady Bunch" that I remember.

    I also remember him in an episode of "Wonder Woman", where he and a bunch of other NFL players started to fight with each other.

    Not sure what the Pats are going to do with a QB who cannot hit the broad side of a barn with a pass. Anyway, he will be 3rd string, at best, behind Brady and Mallett. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets cut before the start of the season.

    Scott,

    That must have been one huge barn in overtime against the Steelers in the playoffs two years ago!

    ;)

    That sums it up.

    For the record, here are the lowest completion percentages in a season since the advent of the 16-game schedule in 1978 (minimum 250 passing attempts):

    1 Rusty Hilger 1988 0.4122 Doug Williams 1979 0.4183 Jay Schroeder 1988 0.4414 Akili Smith 2000 0.4425 Vince Evans 1981 0.4476 Heath Shuler 1994 0.4537 Steve Deberg 1978 0.4548 Tim Tebow 2011 0.4639 Mark Malone 1987 0.46410 Craig Whelihan 1998 0.466

    Tebow had the lowest completion percentage since 2000 in a league that is now a pass happy / passing friendly league.

    Are the Jets actually keeping the King of the butt-fumble?

    If you mean Sanchez, I think the salary cap hit to release him this year is pretty severe. He will probably remain on the roster for that reason alone. There is no way any team is going to trade for him with that contract.

    I do not know who here has been following the Aaron Hernandez story, but the crap really hit the fan today. Not only was he arrested (charges have not been made public yet), but the Patriots then released him! The latter development would lead me to believe that the charges are more than just obstruction of justice.

    From a football standpoint, there must be some salary cap implications for New England on this, as I think Hernandez signed a contract extension not too long ago.

    Maybe the Patriots found out Tebow can run routes and catch the football... :D

    I think Tebow needs a new vocation, Prison Ministery.
    Only Tebow can save Hernandz now.

    Maybe Tebow is the reason for Hernandez's downfall. After all, he didn't get arrested until after Tebow signed with the Pats. Coincidence or not? :rolleyes:

    Seriously, the story continues to grow more amazing as details come out. Now he is suspected of killing two people last July, and supposedly killed Ortiz because he was blabbing to some others about it at a night club. If these accusations prove to be true, Hernandez will go down in history as one of the worst criminals in American sports history... along with being one of the dumbest. The trail of evidence he left behind in this most recent killing is so blatant that even Inspector Clouseau could follow it.
