Twitter reacts to the Percy Harvin trade to NY Jets

Jay Glazer of Fox Sports sent a nice tremor throughout Twitter this Friday evening as he broke the news that the Seattle Seahawks were trading wide receiver Percy Harvin to the NY Jets for a conditional pick.

There will be much debate about why this trade was made throughout the weekend. But for now let’s just enjoy the social media reaction to the trade.

Even the “NFL” Advisory didn’t know about the trade, or believed it.

Mike Vick was unprepared for Football last Sunday

The San Diego Chargers demolished the New York Jets this past Sunday 31-0. Phillip Rives torched the Jets secondary for 288 yards, while Mike Vick came off the bench and completed 47 yards worth of passing.

It’s bad enough that starter Geno Smith was benched in the 2nd half for ineffective play. It was also  reported that he was late to a team meeting on Saturday night because he was at the movies and lost track of time.

But to make matters worst, the backup quarterback, Vick, admitted that he was “unprepared” for the Chargers. vick

“Maybe I didn’t prepare or I wasn’t prepared, but I’ll tell you what, it won’t happen again,” Vick said, per the New York Post.

Such is the struggle of a backup quarterback who gets little to no reps and is expected to perform on cue. Vick acknowledged he probably took the scout-team reps for granted.

“I learned a lesson last week: always stay ready, always be prepared,” Vick said. “That left a bitter taste in my mouth that I wasn’t able to go out and put points on the board or even help this team in any fashion. So this week has been a different work week from me (and) throughout the rest of the year, it’s going to be totally different for me as far as my preparation.”

Vick, after being in the league since 2001, is still learning lessons. We’ll see if his preparation this week helps the Jets any against the Denver Broncos.

Arian Foster on Thursday Night Football “It’s annoying. No one likes it”

Thursday_Night_Football_logo

As the  debate goes on in the NFL on  the violence of the sport, more and more players are speaking out about the new direction the league seems to have embarked on in giving us more of the sport the fans love.

Thursday Night Football games have been less than stellar this year, with the road team getting blown out in all but one of the 5 games thus far. Many thought that the Eagles-Redskins matchup would have been more competitive, but the football team from Washington forgot to show up for most of that contest.

Tonight we have the Houston Texans and the Indianapolis Colts. Two teams that have some bad blood between the two, and are prime time teams in the AFC South.

Tonight’s contest is somewhat over shadowed by the comments of Texans running back Arian Foster, who blatantly says that none of the players even like Thursday night games. arianfoster

“Thursday Night Football is pretty annoying for players,” Foster said. “I don’t know one player that likes it. I really don’t know a fan that likes it, either. I think it’s just the league’s way to try to generate more revenue, but that’s what they are here for.”

I know he may not speak for all of the players, but I think he speaks for a majority of them. These Thursday night games, while entertaining to most, are a pain for the players because of rest and routine. How long will they last is anybody’s guess. But with the NFL making money hands over fist, Arian better get used to it because I doubt it will go away any time soon.

Brady Quinn Signs With Miami Dolphins

Brady-Quinn-Action-Water-670x350
It was seven years ago. NFL Draft day. Remember this…?

I know I do. I can honestly say that I didn’t expect the Dolphins to draft Brady Quinn, but I definitely didn’t expect them to draft Ted Ginn Jr. (and his whole family).

But plenty of fans who were so desperate for a new quarterback for the Miami Dolphins, sat in horror and shock as the administration at that time passed over what was considered the best qb left on the board and decided to draft a speedy receiver who was scared to take a hit.

You saw the reaction there from Quinn. He knew the Dolphins needed a qb. The whole world knew it, and for whatever reason they went with the guy who catches the ball instead of getting a guy who could throw it to the guy who would catch the ball.

Regardless, here we are seven years later and Brady and the Phins have come full circle, as reported by Profootballtalk.com…

Quarterback Brady Quinn, who recently took at job handling college and pro football for FOX Sports, may not be available when football season begins. According to Jeff Darlington of NFL Network, Quinn has signed with the Dolphins.
It appeared he’d slide out of the NFL permanently. But the Dolphins have needs at a minimum for a camp arm. After working out Quinn, John Skelton, and Rex Grossman, the Dolphins opted to sign Quinn.

Quinn has until August 30th to make this Dolphins team again…for the first time.

****UPDATED****
Miami Dolphins officially make announcement this morning
